With five Marvel films already announced to come out in 2020-21 as part of the ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the excitement for the in-development, Thor: Love and Thunder, has been sky-high right from the moment the project was green-lit by the reputed blockbuster studio.
Announced to hit theatres worldwide on November 5, 2021, Thor: Love and Thunder will see Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi returning to the director's chair with Chris Hemsworth once again set to play the Norse god Thor, Natalie Portman returning as Jane Foster and Tessa Thompson reprising her character of Valkyrie. Along with Taika Waititi, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson has been brought on board to co-write the screenplay, which will be the final film of the Marvel's upcoming Phase Four.

Although she didn't open up on which villain the Batman actor will be playing, Tessa has revealed that she will be King Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder saying, "She's king. If she can't find her queen, she'll just be king and queen at the same time. If you take Ragnarok, which I feel was a very outlandish and big, bombastic film, we're trying to double down on everything we did with that and create something that is even more crazy and even more of a big adventure,".
