Marvel’s very own God of Thunder Chris Hemsworth has announced that Thor: Love and Thunder has wrapped production. The anticipated film sees Hemsworth reprise his role as Thor alongside the return of Thor veterans Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif and Taika Waititi both in the director’s chair and as Korg.
The photo Hemsworth revealed with his comments on the film’s production wrap shows Waititi in his mo-cap gear as Korg while Hemsworth celebrates “national don’t flex day”, showing Thor has bounced back physically from the beer gut he developed in Avengers: Endgame.
“That’s a wrap on Thor Love and Thunder,” Hemsworth said. “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 heart string or two. Lots of love, lots of thunder! Thank you to all the cast and crew who made this another incredible Marvel journey. Buckle in, get ready and see ya in cinemas!”
