Star-Lord and Thor, played by two of Marvel’s famous Chris’s, are set to team up in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
Chris Pratt’s Guardians of the Galaxy character is set to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fourth Thor film, joining a lineup that includes Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman (who returns to the franchise for the first time since 2013’s Thor: The Dark Role, reprising her role as Jane Foster), Tessa Thompson (whose Valkyrie became the new ruler of Asgard at the end of Avengers: Endgame) and Christian Bale (whom Variety reported was circling a mysterious role).
Though plot details on Love and Thunder have been kept tightly under wraps, the crossover casting makes logical sense, since Thor was last seen aboard Star-Lord’s spaceship in the closing scenes of Avengers: Endgame and with Pratt’s Star-Lord already set to return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set for release in Feb. 2022. Marvel and Disney had no comment on the casting reports.
