The shooting of Thor: Love and Thunder has been going on in full swing in Fox Studios, Sydney, since January 26. In recent photos from the sets, Chris Pratt, who is set to reprise his role as Star-Lord, and Chris Hemsworth, who will play Thor, can be seen in a brand-new look.
In photos from the film set first shared by Mail Online, Chris Hemsworth can be seen sporting blonde hair and a much beefier physique, and seems to have ditched the Viking look for a relatively leaner one. So, no more ‘fat Thor’!
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be a big crossover between Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord in the latter, can be seen in his new costume in the photos.
Also spotted on set were actors Karen Gillan and Sean Gunn, who are set to play Nebula and Kraglin respectively in Thor 4. Fans are eagerly awaiting Natalie Portman’s look, ever since it was revealed that she will return to the Marvel Universe in her role as Jane Foster. Portman’s character is expected to become the Mighty Thor, Goddess of Thunder, at a crucial point in the film.
Actor-wise, Thor: Love and Thunder boasts of a stellar ensemble cast. Superstar Christian Bale is set to make his debut in the Marvel Comic Universe as Gorr, the God Butcher. The film will also star Tessa Thompson who is set to reprise her role as Valkyrie. We can’t wait to find out what the costumes of the rest of the cast are going to be like and what they’re up to on the set.
Marvel movies are known for their elaborate costumes, esoteric cinematography, and larger-than-life action. Thor: Love and Thunder is perhaps the biggest crossover in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what will befall the Galaxy characters is something the fans are avidly discussing.
In a recent tweet, James Gunn, who directed Guardians of the Galaxy (2017), said that Galaxy characters are “in great hands” with director Taika Waititi (who is helming Thor 4):
Pratt’s role is much anticipated as Star-Lord is set to share screen-space with Thor himself.
Let’s hope Thor 4 turns out as exciting on the screen as it is with the costumes and the star cast!
The film is slated to release on May 6, 2022.
