Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok wasn't just a fresh and exciting new direction for the Chris Hemsworth starring franchise it was also a shot in the arm for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Ever since their introduction to Waititi's colorful and fun take on the Norse God of Thunder, fans of the film have been eagerly awaiting a follow up. Thankfully, one is on the horizon.
We already know a few things about the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, one of the most crucial being that it will feature the return of Natalie Portman as scientist Jane Foster. She was also Thor's love interest in the first two films until she dumped him.
But, wait. There's more news. Not only is Portman returning she'll be picking up the hammer and becoming a Goddess of Thunder herself. This has prompted massive speculation about what that means for Hemsworth's future with the franchise. He's slated to appear in Love and Thunder, but will Jane's ascension to superhero status mean it's the last we see of Hemsworth as Thor?
During an interview with Poland's Elle Man, which has been translated from Polish, Hemsworth addressed the question head-on. When asked if Love and Thunder would be his last outing as Thor, the actor replied that he's not planning on retiring from the role. Plus, the character of Thor is too young for that. He's only 1,500 years old. Hemsworth also added that he hopes he doesn't have to say goodbye to the franchise.
So, it sounds like if Hemsworth has his way the next Thor movie won't be his last dance. This is great news for fans of one of Marvel Studios' earliest Avengers.
In the same interview, the Australian actor also teased fans about what to expect from the film. We've already heard from Waititi himself that Love and Thunder is allegedly going to put Ragnarok to shame in the wild 'n' crazy arena.
Based on what Hemsworth had to say in his Elle Man interview, it sounds like he's in agreement with Waititi. He explained that after reading the script, he's very excited about the film.
According to Cinemablend, the movie was originally set to complete filming in 2020, but production has been pushed back to early 2021. That means a longer wait for Thor fans, but Hemsworth reiterated that the delay will be worth it. While he didn't reveal anything specific about the movie's plot, he did say that he had even more fun reading this script than he did reading the one for Thor: Ragnarok. And that's saying a lot because Hemsworth referred to Ragnarok as brilliant.
If you're mostly a fan of Marvel movies and haven't explored the comics, you may be wondering how exactly Jane Foster becomes Thor. Does that mean she's replacing the previous Thor? Keep watching the video to see how Chris Hemsworth finally speaks out about his MCU retirement!
