Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is back for the fourquel, and the movie was officially unveiled at Comic-Con with one very surprise announcement. And we’re not talking the amazing title Thor: Love and Thunder.
So what are we talking about? Read on to find out everything you need to know about the movie.
Thor 4 release date: When is it out?
When he agreed to come back for the fourth movie, Waititi delayed his live-action adaptation of Akira for Warner Bros, and it seems work will start on the movie soon.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be out on November 5, 2021, currently the last scheduled movie of Phase 4, although it will be followed by others in 2022. It’s not yet clear if it’ll have the traditional earlier release in the UK.
Thor 4 cast: Oh hi Natalie Portman
Yes, you heard us right. Natalie Portman is returning as Jane Foster in the sequel and she won’t be any ordinary Jane, she’ll be female Thor.
It marks Portman’s first major MCU since Thor: The Dark World back in 2013 as although there was footage of Jane in Avengers: Endgame, she only provided new dialogue for repurposed deleted footage from The Dark World.
Of course, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are back as Thor and Valkyrie, but that’s all we know for sure about the cast so far.
By the end of Avengers: Endgame, Thanos is defeated once-and-for-all and heads off with the Guardians of the Galaxy on a new mission, but not before making Valkyrie the leader of New Asgard.

There is also a real reason to believe the fourth movie might introduce fan-favourite, Beta Ray Bill. Though who would play the alien warrior remains to be seen.
Thor 4 plot: Where will Thor go next?
With the arrival of female Thor in the MCU, Waititi has revealed that he’s taken inspiration for the movie from Marvel Comics series The Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman.
“That storyline is incredible is full emotion, love and thunder and introduces for the first time female Thor,” he explained.
Aside from that, Thompson teased that Valkyrie will be rebuilding Asgard and “re-investing in her people”, while Hemsworth has no idea what Thor has been up to since joining the Guardians: “At this point, he might be on the couch.”
Thor 4 trailer: When will the trailer arrive online?
With a 2021 release confirmed, we can probably expect the first trailer to land in 2020, either at Comic-Con or later in the year.
Thor: Love and Thunder is released on November 5, 2021.
