Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Love and Thunder is set to begin filming this August according to director Taika Waititi.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting Chris Hemsworth’s next cinematic solo outing as Thor, which will see the return of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster and director Taika Waititi, who also penned Thor: Ragnarok. Chris Hemsworth’s last adventure as Thor was in Avengers: Endgame, where the God came to terms with the sins of his past and the absolution of his home-planet. Now, in Thor: Love and Thunder, he’ll be reuniting with his love interest Jane Foster, something that will hopefully serve fans some considerable drama.

Speaking to Variety, Thor: Love and Thunder director confirmed that the next film in the Chris Hemsworth series will begin filming around August in Australia. The Thor director was also asked about how the Australian wildfires will be affecting the production of the Chris Hemsworth film. You can check out the video clip below.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be more colorful and comical than Ragnarok, which shifted away from the Shakespearian inspiration that previous films in the Chris Hemsworth franchise had. One of the key components of the next film in the Thor franchise will be Valkyrie, who was crowned as New Asgard’s king, searching for her queen, making her one of the franchise’s first LGBTQ characters. Natalie Portman’s character is also expected to take on the mantle of Thor.

In the meantime, fans can re-watch Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok on all home media formats.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok”, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson,  Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins.
