Guardians of the Galaxy will have more screen time in “Thor: Love and Thunder”, so it won’t just be cameo.
The crossover is unsurprising, especially since the last time fans saw Pratt’s charming if somewhat bumbling hero was in the end of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame on board the same spaceship as Hemsworth‘s Thor. On the Thor front, Love And Thunder is the follow up to 2017’s massively successful third installment in the series, titled Thor: Ragnarok. Like that film, the fourth Thor movie will be directed by Taika Waititi.
Notably, Love And Thunder will welcome back Oscar winner Natalie Portman to the franchise, who last played her role of Jane Foster in the less successful second chapter of Thor in 2013, titled Thor: The Dark World. And in the new film, she is said to be taking on the mantle of Thor, thereby becoming the first female actor to do so. Another Academy Award winner set to appear in Love And Thunder is Christian Bale, who is said to be cast in an as-yet undisclosed villainous role.
Thor: Love And Thunder is currently slated for release in February of 2022.
