What is Thor 4 called?
Thor 4 is called Thor: love and thunder, The announcement took place at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2019, along with several other important news. More on that later…
Who is in the Thor: love and thunder?
Marvel boss Kevin Feige announced at Comic-Con that Natalie Portman will return to the MCU as Jane Foster. But this time, she is supposed to be herself a deity of divine if Thor can not lift his hammer for obvious unworthiness (a subject previously explored in Avengers: Endgame and a popular comic run in which the movie directly occurs) from).
"[She’s] a Thor, "Waititi told ET. "There's the other Thor, the original Thor. Her name is not Female Thor. In the comics she's called Mighty Thor. It's from this comic run."
Waititi explained how he convinced Portman to return to the Thor series (via diversity), "I just said to her," Are you interested in coming back to this, but doing something completely different? "Nobody wants to repeat themselves, and nobody wants to play the same characters all the time.

"And I think for her it really was what everyone would care about just when she came back to repeat this character in a completely new way. Especially in most of these films, if you are not a superhero … do you really want to continue this? I mean, I would not. I want to come back and change things. "
In addition, it was confirmed that Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will return as Thor and Valkyrie.
Jeff Goldblum has also suggested and told a possible comeback for the Grand Master Weekly entertainment: "I can not reveal secrets, not that I definitely know something, but there is a whisper of a thought or idea I have could I want to participate. "
In addition, everything is speculation.
It's possible that Mark Ruffalo's Hulk may be seen in the movie after his starring role in Thor: Ragnarok (Ruffalo is said to have a movie on his Marvel contract) or some of the Guardians of the Galaxy teaming Thor for the last time into space.
Many of Thor's other supporting characters – including his friends, Warriors Three, his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), his mother Frigga (Rene Russo), Heimdall (Idris Elba) and others – were recently killed in Marvel films one of them would pop up, unless flashbacks or visions were used, as used in the Thor films in the past.
And then there is the question of Loki …
Will Loki be in the sequel to Thor?
Obviously, Tom Hiddlestons Loki died during the events of Avengers: Infinity War – but an earlier version of the God of Mischief from the Avengers: Endgame journey from 2012 has escaped its own streaming series for Disney +.
THIS Loki is expected to be the earlier version unlocked in Endgame – but could he also appear in Thor 4? Honestly, we can not imagine a Thor movie without Hiddleston. So we would not be surprised if Thor tracked down this alternative version of his brother, even if he was stuck in another time.
And we would not be surprised if the Loki series questioned this possibility. Finally, Stranger Things 3 has already proven that streaming dramas are well suited for post-credits scenes …
What is the story of Thor 4?
The film will adapt a Lady Thor story arc from a recent Marvel comics series called The Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron.
"This story is unbelievable, full of emotions, love and thunder, and introduces the female Thor for the first time," said Waititi at Comic-Con. "For us, there is only one person who could play that role … Natalie Portman."
In the comics, the original Thor was considered unworthy to lead his hammer Mjolnir, who paved the way for Jane Foster. However, there is no Mjolnir in the current MCU (it was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok) so that Jane can accept her new powers in a different way …
(Mjolnir returned to Avengers: Endgame with a time delay, but Captain America later brought him back to his right place and time.)
