Chris Hemsworth Says He Starts Filming ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ In January

The star will wield Stormbreaker again very soon!

Chris Hemsworth has revealed that he starts filming Thor: Love and Thunder in January.

After the recent news that Natalie Portman has arrived in Australia to prepare for production on Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth revealed he starts filming in January. Hemsworth was speaking to the Swisse Vitamins & Supply company when he provided the update about the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel. Love and Thunder will seemingly adopt Jane Foster’s cancer storyline from Mighty Thor, as Natalie Portman mentioned it in a recent interview.

While discussing his role in the next Thor film, Chris Hemsworth mentioned that he’s excited to push both the project and the character in new directions after audiences have come to expect wild, dramatic things from the God of Thunder after his last few appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was also quick to praise the rest of the cast in the film as well as director Taika Waititi, who he says is currently writing the script. Take a look at what Chris Hemsworth had to say about Thor: Love and Thunder below.

“I was supposed to be shooting Thor right now but obviously everything got pushed back and I’ll be starting that in January. It’s the fourth time, the fourth Thor film and I think the eighth or ninth time I’ve been in a Marvel movie. So, very excited, excited to try and do something different. You know, the last three films we certainly pushed the envelope and created different versions of the character and now people expect massive dramatic changes so we’ve got our work cut out for us in that sense. But we’ve got Taika Waititi, the same director back, he’s writing the script currently. Natalie Portman’s going to be in the film, Tessa Thompson… So we’ve got a fantastic slew of actors in there, and crew and cast.”

Full details on the plot for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder are currently under wraps, 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 February 11, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Chris Hemsworth’s Love and Thunder and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
