Marvel Studios 2022
With “ Thor 3: Day of Decision ” director and screenwriter Taika Waititi not only delivered the best “Thor” film in the opinion of fans and the trade press, but also one of the most popular MCU films ever. Nevertheless, Waititi does not want to repeat himself with » Thor 4: Love And Thunder «, but dare something new, as he now revealed in an interview.
On the one hand, this should be achieved through a stronger focus on the subject of love , which already plays a role in the subtitle of «Thor 4». «Love And Thunder» is part superhero spectacle and part romantic comedy, Waititi told Entertainment Weekly , and finally Part 4 returns Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Thor’s ex-girlfriend and now a Thor herself.
Of course , Waititi Entertainment Weekly did not reveal how this came about and what exactly happened in the meantime, nor did the film magazine Empire , with whom he recently also spoke about “Thor 4”. At least both magazines have new pictures from «Love And Thunder» to offer, which you can see below:

On the other hand, «Thor 4» should also stand out thematically from «Thor 3» , which Waititi describes to Entertainment Weekly as «a party» and «pretty festive».
«[‘Thor 4’] is also fun and over the top at times, but it’s also a deeper thematic film. It’s not a serious film and it’s not a drama, but we deal with […] universal themes like love and loss and one’s right place in the world. «
So far, so vague, but how exactly you can imagine that, Waititi then explained: «Everyone in the film asks this question: What is the meaning of my life? What’s the reason I’m a hero? What do I do when I have such powers? It’s actually a midlife crisis movie.”
Thor 4 asks if we are doing the right thing, if we are doing everything in our power to help the world. «I think that’s a good question now that the world is recovering from the pandemic. Are we doing enough to take care of others and take care of ourselves?”
» Thor: Love And Thunder » will be released in German cinemas on July 6, 2022.
