Thor: Love and Thunder is coming soon, and we can’t wait to see the next steps in Thor’s journey. When we last saw the Asgardian hero, he went off with the Guardians of the Galaxy to figure out who he wanted to be. His next film features the return of Natalie Portman to the MCU and Christian Bale as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher. We spoke with Thor: Love and Thunder writer and director Taika Waititi on Thor, Jane Foster and Korg.
We highly appreciate how Waititi is ready to play Korg at any time. The Kronan warrior made his MCU debut in Thor: Ragnarok. He’s been a part of Thor’s life ever since. And part of Taika’s life too. Here, Waititi dodges the question of whether Korg might appear in Dead Pool 3. We got this fantastic video of Korg and Deadpool together last summer as promotion for free guy. This marked Deadpool‘s first appearance in the MCU. So, naturally, we only want more from this dream team.
And if Waititi ends up slipping a Kronan into his star wars film? We wouldn’t complain.
In our chat with Waititi, the director and screenwriter also talks about bringing Natalie Portman back to the MCU. Jane Foster is Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. She’s always been more than Thor’s girlfriend, but we’re thrilled to see her in a starring role and wielding Mjolnir. She certainly has a lot to do in the movie, including Gorr the God Butcher. Christian Bale plays the character, and although we’ve heard he was laughing on set, Waititi assures us that Bale is a professional. We are not surprised.
Thor: Love and Thunder premieres July 8.
