According to Variety, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson will co-wrote the screenplay of the highly anticipated sequel ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’ She will be writing with returning director Taika Waititi (‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ ‘Jojo Rabbit’).
Robinson is an up-and-comer in the film industry. She recently wrote and directed the Netflix film ‘Someone Great.’ Additionally, she was the creator of the MTV series ‘Sweet/Vicious,’ and also wrote four episodes of the show.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) will all reprise their roles for this fourth outing. Waititi himself recruited Robinson to join him on this project, likely for a women’s perspective, with Valkyrie and Jane leading.
Waititi will also lend his voice once again for the role of fan-favorite Korg. Christian Bale (‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Ford v Ferrari’) is in talks to join the cast, likely in a villain role.
So what is the mystery role Bale is circling? It could be Dario Agger, from the ‘Mighty Thor’ comics that the film is adapting. But, ultimately, we do not know.
Based on how ‘Avengers: Endgame’ ended, spoiler alert, Thor becomes a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy. So, it would make sense Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Vin Diesel join Chris Hemsworth in this fo(u)rthcoming sequel.
Meanwhile, last July, we at the GWW got word that Marvel Studios is casting a transwoman actress for an upcoming project. With casting ramping up for ‘Thor: Love and Thunder,’ perhaps we will soon find out who will play this role, as well as the character itself (which is all but confirmed to be Sera).
Further, filming will begin this August in Sydney, Australia.
Marvel Studios will release the film on November 5, 2021.
