Director Taika Waititi says that the upcoming film, Thor: Love and Thunder, will be radically different from the last movie.
According to the interview by Empire Magazine, the director, writer, and actor explained on an Instagram post that he shared at the beginning of June, where he announced that the filming of Thor: Love and Thunder have already been completed. He shared that the work with the cast and crew is the craziest thing that he’d ever done.
Thor ‘Love and Thunder’
In the interview, he said that he has done some crazy things in his life, which could be considered him living ten lifetimes due to the intensity of such things. However, of all of them, the upcoming film is perhaps the craziest one yet.
However, Waititi clarified that the film is “crazy” simply because what he has created should not necessarily make sense. He also said that what makes the upcoming Marvel movie so wild rests on how he managed to secure every important element, starting from its storyline to its cast.
He said that if you jot down every element of the film, it will not make sense. It seemed, according to him, that the film should not be made at all. If it was any other person who proposed what would happen in the movie and who will be doing such, along with its title Love and Thunder, they are sure to be stripped off their job. The director added that he might not work after the film.
Different from other Thor movies
The award-winning director did not also just tease why the production of the film was so wild. In fact, he also shared about what the viewers can expect from the film, where he promised a very different story compared to Thor: Ragnarok.
According to him, this film will have more emotion as well as a lot more love. Furthermore, like the title, it will have more thunder, and of course, Thor, if everyone has seen all the photos.
He finished by saying that the film is by far the craziest thing he has ever done. Moreover, he is honored that he has worked hard on it, along with some nervous breakdowns in the middle, so that the viewers can see it in May of 2022.
The upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder will witness the return of Chris Hemsworth as an Avenger, alongside actress Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Christian Bale as the villain Gorr the God Butcher, and Natalie Portman will be playing the role once again of Jane Foster, who will become Thor. There are also several Guardians of the Galaxy stars, including Chris Pratt, who is also set to appear, along with Russell Crowe in a smaller role.
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit the theaters on May 6, 2022.
