We knew from recent reports that Taika Waititi was coming back to the Thor franchise as it bumped his work on Akira and now Marvel Studios has set the details with a planned fall 2021 debut for Thor: Love and Thunder. The film brings back Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie. What’s going to be fun and divisive for fans is that the film is being based on parts of the Mighty Thor comics from Jason Aaron where Jane Foster takes on the role of the god of thunder. Which means Natalie Portman will be back for a bigger role this time around.
“That storyline is incredible is full emotion, love, and thunder and introduces for the first time female Thor,” said Waititi.
