With the recently announced Thor 4 bringing back Taika Waititi as director, the film revealed its official title and release date Saturday night at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Officially titled Thor 4: Love and Thunder, the film arrives in theaters November 5, 2021. Jane Foster is set to return as the Mighty Thor from the Marvel comics, starring alongside Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompkins.
"Because there's nothing more powerful in the world than love," said Waititi with Hemsworth adding "and thunder." About Valkyrie's changes for New Asgard, "as new King, she needs to find her new queen, so that'll be her first order of business, she has some ideas. I'll keep you posted," Thompson said.
About other storylines Taika pulled from, Waititi mentioned The Mighty Thor and how it's full of emotion and love and thunder and how it introduces for the first time, female Thor.
"So for us, there's only one person who could play that role, please welcome Natalie Portman," said Waititi as he introduced Natalie Portman to the stage.
Portman made her debut as Jane Foster in 2011's Thor, and reprised her role for the sequel. However, she didn't appear in Thor: Ragnarok, with Portman having seemingly parted ways with Marvel Studios. In that movie, Thor revealed he and Foster had broken up, explaining her absence from the film.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. The film arrives in theaters on November 5, 2021.
