Thor 4 Will Be Crazier and More Emotional Than Ragnarok, Says Taika Waititi
hor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi teased the latest installment in the Marvel Studios franchise will be much different than Ragnarok.
"It's crazier. I’ll tell you what's different," Waititi told Empire magazine. "There'll be far more emotion in this film. And a lot more love. And a lot more thunder. And a lot more Thor, if you’ve seen the photos."
The director's comments come shortly after Jaimie Alexander, who portrays Lady Sif in Love and Thunder, teased her return to the franchise, writing, "The lady has returned... and she is here to stay" on Instagram.
Alexander's co-star Karen Gillan, who will reprise her role as Nebula, also recently shared that fans will see a more "bonkers side" of her character in Love and Thunder. "I don't know if it’s personal [levity]. Like I don’t think she's finding herself funny or being funny, but in her seriousness, I think we will find her funny, and just the pure aggression that we’ve tapped into."
It was previously confirmed that Gillan will be joined by her Guardians of the Galaxy co-stars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista. The film will also introduce Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher and Russell Crowe as Zeus, with cameos from Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Melissa McCarthy.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. The film arrives in theaters May 6, 2022.
