Taika Waititi has teased that Thor: Love And Thunder will be both insane and romantic.
The Kiwi filmmaker, who oversaw Thor: Ragnarok, the last installment to the series, made this admission to the BBC, while also confirming that he’s almost finished writing the screenplay.
“It is so insane and also very romantic. I’m into romances now. I just want to make a romance. I want to make something that I’ve never done or never cared for. I would like to attack something like that.”
The romance that Waititi is referring to is likely to be between Thor and Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster.
Marvel president Kevin Feige confirmed that the Oscar winner is returning to the MCU at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, while it was also soon revealed that Foster would become a female version of Thor, something that happened in the comics.
Love And Thunder will also see Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, who replaced Thor as the King Of New Asgard in Avengers: Endgame, search for her queen, too.
Thompson admitted as much on stage at Comic-Con, remarking, “First of all, as new King [of Asgard], she needs to find her queen, so that will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted.”
Shortly after, Feige then told io9, “The answer is yes. How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation you’ll see across our films, not in just Thor 4.”
“With the actors, I feel whatever makes them comfortable – whether they feel like there’s a natural choice, or a natural way for that character to go – then I’m pretty supportive. If Tessa wanted to do that, I’m in.”
