13 Jul – "Thor: Ragnarok" was among one of the weirdest and most fun MCU films to have ever been made, but it looks like its director Taika Waititi is pushing the envelope even further with his latest, "Thor: Love and Thunder".
The New Zealander, who won praises for his 2017 version of the Marvel superhero, recently admitted that the fourth Thor movie (which is also his second one) will be absolutely bonkers.
"Well, just between [me and] you and the readers, I've done some crazy [expletive] in my life. I've lived, like, 10 lifetimes. But it's the craziest film I've ever done," he admitted to Empire. "If you wrote down all the elements of this film, it shouldn't make sense. It's almost like it shouldn't be made."
"If you walked into a room and said, 'I want this and this and this.' Who's in it? These people. What are you going to call it? Love And Thunder. I mean, you'd never work again. Maybe I won't after this," he added.
He also stressed that the upcoming movie will be very different from "Ragnarok".
"It's crazier. I'll tell you what's different. There'll be far more emotion in this film. And a lot more love. And a lot more thunder. And a lot more Thor, if you've seen the photos," Waititi added.
Aside from Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Jeff Goldblum reprising their roles in the fourth movie, "Thor: Love and Thunder" will also see the return of Thor's love interest, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), as well as "Guardians of the Galaxy" characters played by Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), and Karen Gillan (Nebula).
Among other stars include Matt Damon, Sam Neill and Luke Hemsworth, with Russell Crowe playing Zeus and Christian Bale as the villain, Gorr the God Butcher.
