Taika Waititi has debuted the first piece of concept art from Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
One of the most anticipated movies from the MCU’s upcoming slate is Thor: Love and Thunder, which will see Chris Hemsworth returning to the beloved role. Joining Hemsworth once again to bring the Asgardian hero to life is director Taika Waititi, who blew away fans with his sci-fi centric Thor: Ragnarok from 2017. Now an Oscar-winning writer, the Thor director is enjoying his quarantine by showing off concept art from Thor: Love and Thunder.
On Thursday evening, the director was participating in a live screening party of Chris Hemsworth’s Ragnarok. Of course, being the cheeky individual he is, the director also dropped some concept art from the upcoming Thor film. Lucky for us, a fan was able to screengrab the concept art from Thor: Love and Thunder.

Though blurry, the concept art shows off a new medieval-centric locale, presumably New Asgard. Another picture shows off a female Miek, as well as another creature that’ll hopefully make an appearance in the Chris Hemsworth project. While details are slim on the film, Love and Thunder is confirmed to have Natalie Portman returning to her character of Jane. In the film, Portman will be seen taking on the mantle of Thor, which will certainly make for an interesting time at the movies.
