Chris Hemsworth talks about the roles of his children in the upcoming film “Thor: Love and Thunder” and what their participation in the project meant to him. After being last seen in 2019’s Avengers: Finale alongside Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor is finally set to return to screens in Love and Thunder. Following the success of 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi is also returning to lead this highly anticipated MCU installment, which will not only see the return of Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, but will also welcome the return of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, taking on the mantle of the Mighty Thor. “Thor: Love and Thunder” will also see Christian Bale star as the MCU’s scary new villain, Gorr the Butcher God.
Thor: Love and Thunder is Hemsworth’s fourth stand—alone film as the Thunder God after a number of memorable performances throughout his MCU career. Judging by earlier teasers, many assumed that the film could potentially be the last hurrah for Hemsworth and Thor. However, Waititi recently refuted these claims, saying that he has many more stories about the Torah that he would like to study in the future. In the release of the first trailer for “Thor: Love and Thunder”, a short excerpt from Thor in his youth was shown, which, as many quickly noticed, is very similar to Hemsworth’s own little son.
