Thor: Love and Thunder

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Taika Waititi described Thor: Love and Thunder as a “bigger, bolder and brighter” film than Thor: Ragnarok.

The next Thor film I’m doing, basically, we’re sort of launching ourselves again on this adventure film, really. That was the thing really that I loved about doing Ragnarok, it felt like we were just putting Thor on a really cool adventure. There’s always like new things to see and do, and this one, I think we’re gonna double down a lot on that and have it bigger, bolder and brighter. There’s just gonna be some really crazy stuff in the film.
