It’s official: Chris Pratt will appear in the upcoming MCU film Thor: Love and Thunder. The reunion of Star-Lord and Thor is hardly a surprise, as we last saw Thor join the Guardians of the Galaxy at the end of Avengers: Endgame. The film will star Chris Hemsworth in the title role, where he will be joined by Natalie Portman, who is reprising her role as Dr. Jane Foster. This will be her first time back in the MCU since Thor: The Dark World in 2013. Portman’s Foster is expected to take on the mantle of Mighty Thor.

In addition, we’ll get to see Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, the new king of New Asgard, and Christian Bale in an unspecified role. Taika Waititi returns to direct, as well as perform the role of Thor’s Kronan BFF Korg.

The film is set to begin shooting in Australia in January and is scheduled to hit theaters in February 2022. But these dates are subject to change (as everything is) due to the pandemic. Will Love and Thunder lift Chris Pratt out of his ranking as Worst Chris, or will he instead drag Alright Chris Hemsworth down a peg? I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens!

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
