Word that Thor: Love and Thunder was being given the go-ahead originally came as something of a surprise just a few days before Marvel’s big Hall H panel at SDCC 2019. Marvel’s Phase Four slate, long shrouded in mystery, was also revealed at the big show, with casts revealed for projects like Black Widow, Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and more. But Thor: Love and Thunder makes the “strongest Avenger” the first of Marvel’s solo heroes to get a fourth film all to himself.

Thor 4 Cast
Chris Hemsworth, of course, is returning as Thor, while Tessa Thompson is back as Valkyrie. Waititi supports Thompson’s keenness to play Valkyrie as explicitly queer in Thor 4, though he admits that ultimately it’s not up to him.
“I think so. The IP is not mine,” he told Variety. “But with the actors, I feel whatever makes them comfortable — whether they feel like there’s a natural choice, or a natural way for that character to go — then I’m pretty supportive. If Tessa wanted to do that, I’m in.”
