Asguardians of the Galaxy

Here’s some good news. Empire magazine is reporting that Chris Pratt has signed up to play Star-Lord in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Of course, Thor joined the Guardians of the Galaxy at the end of Avengers: Endgame, so it’s not surprising that there will be (at least some) overlap in Thor’s next outing. But this confirms that at least one of the Guardians will be involved, and I think it’s safe to assume that more (hopefully all of them) will be joining the film soon.

Natalie Portman is back as Jane Foster, who will take on her own Thor personality and attendant powers, while Tessa Thompson returns as Valkyrie and Christian Bale joins the MCU as an unspecified villain. Thor: Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi is once again behind the camera and is likely to be performance capture suiting up as Korg.

2022 can’t come soon enough.
