Next year the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be continuing the storyline of Asgard’s God of Thunder: Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) in Thor Love and Thunder. The muscle-bound hero was last seen in Avengers Endgame leaving Earth to start the Asgardians of the Galaxy alongside the current Guardians of the Galaxy. Since then, set photos and hints from Waititi have been revealed for Thor Love and Thunder – and now the director himself has opened up about the process of creating the next huge MCU hit.
Waititi recently revealed: “Well, just between (me and) you and the readers, I’ve done some crazy s**t in my life. I’ve lived, like, ten lifetimes. But it’s the craziest film I’ve ever done.” (Via Empire)
While the film’s plot has been kept under wraps over the past two years, he hinted it is more elaborate than fans know.
The New Zealander said: “If you wrote down all the elements of this film, it shouldn’t make sense. It’s almost like it shouldn’t be made.
“If you walked into a room and said: ‘I want this and this and this.’ Who’s in it? These people. What are you going to call it? Love And Thunder.”
Waititi then joked about his job prospects after the film, saying: “I mean, you’d never work again. Maybe I won’t after this.”
Going on to compare the picture to his previous Thor movie, 2017 movie Thor Ragnarok, he revealed: “It’s very different from Ragnarok.
“It’s crazier. I’ll tell you what’s different. There’ll be far more emotion in this film.
“And a lot more love. And a lot more thunder. And a lot more Thor, if you’ve seen the photos.”

Hemsworth went on: “Thor is far too young for that. He’s only 1,500 years old.
“It’s definitely not a film that I say goodbye to this brand. At least I hope so.”
To make matters even more exciting, Thor Love and Thunder has since been confirmed to include the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Groot actor Vin Diesel said earlier this year: “Thor[Love and Thunder] will incorporate some of the Guardians of the Galaxy.” (Via ComicBook)
Diesel went on: “That’ll be very interesting, nobody knows, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything.”
In the meantime, fans will have to wait and see how they are involved and what kind of threat they are facing.
Thor Love and Thunder is due to hit cinemas on May 6, 2022.
