'Thor: Love And Thunder' completes filming, Chris Hemsworth confirms news
Days after Chris Hemsworth's hair designer Luca Vannella indicated that Thor: Love and Thunder has finished shooting, lead actor Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi have now made it official. "The film is gonna be batshit crazy," the actor wrote in his announcement. To note, this will be the fourth MCU movie in Thor franchise, and is slated to to hit theaters next May 6.
While sharing it on Instagram, Hemsworth wrote, "That's a wrap on Thor Love and Thunder, it's also national don't flex day so I thought this super relaxed photo was appropriate." "The film is gonna be batshit crazy off the wall funny and might also pull a heartstring or two. Thank you to all the cast and crew who made this another incredible Marvel journey."
The black and white photo is reportedly from the last day of the shoot, with Hemsworth looking shredded (as always), and Waititi wearing an ancient, motion-capture suit. The latter will be playing Korg once again, a role that he brilliantly essayed in Ragnarok.
Waititi shared the same photo with a note for fans, "And that's a wrap on Thor: Love and Thunder." "Sometimes two people come together to inspire the world and change the cinematic landscape forever. And then there's me and @chrishemsworth who are too cool to care about anything except making movies that bring people absolute joy. Ok, I don't look cool I know that."
Apart from Hemsworth, it boasts a stellar star cast including Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Matt Damon, Karen Gillan, Russell Crowe, and Jeff Goldblum. The movie, which is based on the Mighty Thor graphic novel, started filming in January earlier this year. Waititi shared that he has enjoyed directing the movie, and said, "It might be the best Marvel film ever!"
