Director Taika Wojciech goes out and spins Thor: Love and Thunder. Not that he needs it, the movie looks stunning and Marvel fans are looking forward to it! In a recent interview with Empire, the director talked about the film and explained that it is “a film about love, with superheroes and space.”
In fact, he seems very happy to play out the whole love perspective in the film, and, teasing what fans can expect, he said:
“I think most people will assume that the love story between Chris [Hemsworth] and Natalie [Portman]. I can’t promise that what people think will happen in this film will happen. “
Speaking about how to cover the romantic aspect of the film and how he copes with it, he shared:
“I wanted to embrace what I’ve always been concerned with, and explore this idea of love, and show characters who truly believe in love. On paper I think it’s a little insulting, but there’s a way to do it with cool characters making a cool movie, and also with the fact that no fan will ever want a movie about superheroes, namely people talking about love and kissing characters. “
He went on to praise the film he made and was incredibly confident in it, saying, “This is a fantastic film. I’m not trying to control my movies and how they turn out. I kind of let them appear to me. And with this movie, I say, “Hey, you’re cooler than what I originally hoped to do.” After all, this is where I’ve always wanted it. “
The film finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he has ever encountered – in search of inner peace. But his retirement was interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gore-God Butcher (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor seeks help from the King of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Waiti) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably owns her magic hammer Mjolnir in the role of the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a painful space adventure to unravel the mystery of God the Butcher’s revenge and stop him before it’s too late. “
Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on July 8, 2022.
