Thor: Love and Thunder will begin production in Australia in January of 2021, ComicBook.com reports. Conflicting reports about the start of principal photography on the fourth Thor movie from Marvel Studios surfaced after it was revealed its titular hero actor Chris Hemsworth would be appearing in the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel film focused on Furiosa.
However, the correct answer to the question regarding when the cosmic entry to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will roll cameras is January, going back to Hemsworth’s native country for production after successfully shooting down under with Thor: Ragnarok.
Hemsworth is slated to return for Thor: Love and Thunder, along with Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman. Portman, aside from briefly appearing in Avengers: Endgame, has not been a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Thor: The Dark World. This time around, she will become Thor herself, as her character is following a popular comic book story. Taika Waititi is back to direct the film after winning fans’ hearts with Thor: Ragnarok. Any chance it’s gonna be woke?
Back in April, it was announced that Thor: Love and Thunder would be moved from February 18, 2022, to February 11, 2022, as part of a scheduling shift announced by Disney. Of course, another shift in the film’s release date is not out of the question.
