Love and Thunder ’with Tessa Thompson – Variety


Taika Waititi has revealed some details about her upcoming Marvel movie “Thor: Love and Thunder” on Instagram with some of her “Thor: Ragnorak” stars.

Tessa Thompson and Mark Ruffalo joined the director on Thursday evening as he hosted a viewing night for “Ragnorak” on Instagram Live.

Waititi’s madman Ragnorak took Thor to new comic heights and into space as he ran into hard-drinking Valkyrie (Thompson) and his exiled boyfriend Avenger Hulk (Ruffalo). The highly anticipated “Love and Thunder” will catch up with Thor and Valkyrie after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and be released on February 18, 2022.

“It’s like 10 year olds telling us what should be in a movie and we said yes to everything,” Waititi said of “Love and Thunder.” He added that there were about five drafts of the film’s script and that his first guest, Thompson, had read the last one.

When “Love and Thunder” was announced at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, it was also revealed that Valkyrie of Thompson would be one of the first LGBTQ heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the new Asgardian chief, she is looking for a queen, and Thompson asked if Korg, the rock alien played by Waititi, would also have a love interest.

Waititi said Korg would remain single because he was “deeply in love and has lost that love over time … He does not feel brave enough to find love again. He added that Marvel fans will learn more about the Kronan alien race from Korg and that the Space Sharks, creatures from the comics, will appear.

The director would not give any information on the character of Christian Bale in the upcoming film, and confirmed that the galactic hero Silver Surfer would not be in the film. He also wouldn’t comment on whether Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who has his own Disney Plus show, would be back from the dead for the film.

Ruffalo then replaced Thompson on the Instagram video, but he and Waititi mostly joked and played with the split screen video feature.
