Chris Hemsworth thinks there’s even more pressure on Thor: Love and Thunder to deliver after the success of Ragnarok and the last two Avengers films.
Thor: Ragnarok has become one of the most beloved films in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Taika Waititi’s follow-up is now one of the most highly-anticipated films of Marvel Studios’ Phase Four slate. Filming on Thor: Love and Thunder is underway in Australia, with several set photos already getting out featuring Chris Hemsworth, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Natalie Portman back as Jane Foster.
In a recent piece from GQ Australia, Chris Hemsworth briefly talked about how filming on Thor: Love and Thunder has been so far by going into the pressure there is on the project:
“There’s that same — if not more — pressure now to do that again. So there’s a little bit of exciting nervous energy that is motivating all of us to reach a little further and make sure we’re covering all bases and approaching the scene from every angle.”
Chris Hemsworth will reunite with Chris Pratt in Thor: Love and Thunder, and the actor also took the time in the interview to praise his MCU co-star:
“The guy is wildly impressive with the spontaneity and the humor and the things he comes up with. It’s both funny, inspiring, and intimidating.”

Full details on the plot for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder are currently being kept under lock and key, though the film will be partly based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic book run, in which Jane Foster becomes the new Thor. Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, and Christian Bale.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on May 6, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
