Natalie Portman has revealed when Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder will begin filming.
Hollywood has suffered numerous delays and cancellations due to the ongoing pandemic. With cases throughout the world on a decline, studios like Marvel are slowly prepping to get filming started. Shang-Chi is the next Μαrvel film to resume production down in Australia as the film was one of the first projects to halt filming due to the pandemic. And according to Natalie Portman, the next film to shoot in Australia after Shang-Chi will be none other than Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder has always seemed far out but according to Natalie Portman, filming might be starting sooner than we expected. In a recent chat with Serena Williams over their co-owned soccer team, Portman revealed that the upcoming Thor film will begin shooting in early 2021.
“I’m very excited. We’re shooting in Australia at the beginning of next year.”
“Beginning of next year” means sometime around January to March, which gives the film enough time to make its February 11, 2020 date. Beyond that, the date is early enough in the year that Marvel can be flexible surrounding it if the COVID-19 pandemic worsens. The upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder will see Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster take on the Thor mantle. Just recently, Thor: Love and Thunder writer and director Taika Waititi labeled the film as “very romantic” after confirming he just did a pass on a new draft.
