“Thor 4” is going to be a “crazy romance”: Taika Waititi and Natalie Portman deliver updates
It seems as if the subtitle of the Marvel blockbuster “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” is more than just a tongue-in-cheek play on words: Director and writer Taika Waititi has now stated in an interview that he wants to make a “romance”.
First of all, a short update on the production side of “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” – after all, we are currently living in times in which, even for a multibillion dollar company like Disney, the practical hurdles suddenly outweigh the creative challenges:
But now leading actress Natalie Portman, who will return in her role as Jane Foster after her break in “Thor 3: Decision Day”, has announced in an Instagram live chat with tennis ace Serena Williams: The shooting for “Thor 4 “Should actually start in Australia in early 2021.

The first MCU romance?
This also fits what the newly crowned Oscar winner Taika Waititi (awarded for the best adapted MOVIE4k for “Jojo Rabbit”) knew to report in an interview with the BBC – namely that the script for “Thor 4” has meanwhile been working after more than a year is by and large done, but he’s going over it again this week.
As expected, the “Thor 3” director, who, in addition to his MCU job, is to direct a new “Star Wars” film for Disney, continues to hold back with new details about the plot. So there is no concrete information about the villain role of Christian Bale. However, in the same interview he dropped at least a few comments about the general direction of the film:
at least a few comments on the general direction of the film are made:
“It’s so crazy and also very romantic. I’m into romances now. I just wanna have a romance. I want to do something that I’ve never done before and that I wasn’t even interested in before. I would like to tackle something like that. “
How serious is that
Of course, “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” with Chris Hemsworth as the no longer beer-bellied god of thunder will not be a pure romance – but the MCU is known for the fact that the films are on the whole similar, but the individual parts are still often inspirations from take up different genres: In “Captain America 2: The Return Of The First Avenger” there are many elements of a 1970s paranoia thriller – and several sequences of “Black Panther” are obviously influenced by the James Bond franchise.
In this regard, it is not ruled out that “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” will now be the first concrete MCU romance – but while he tells that in the interview, Taika Waititi also has that mischievous look on it, for which we know him and love. After all, the “5 room kitchen coffin” mastermind is notorious for his quick-witted as well as dust-dry humor …
In this regard, it is not excluded that “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” will now be the first concrete MCU romance
As things stand, “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” is scheduled to start in German cinemas on February 10, 2022. The MCU may continue this year, however – currently the German launch date for “Black Widow” is October 29, 2020.
