Guardians of the Galaxy to Appear in Thor: Love and Thunder!
ComicBook is reporting that the Guardians of the Galaxy characters will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder! The news was revealed during an interview with Vin Diesel while the star was promoting his upcoming movie Bloodshot.
“I am waiting and excited for my friend James Gunn to knock this next one out of the park,” Diesel said. “He took The Suicide Squad so he’s about to embark on it. Thor will also, the director talked to me about [how] Thor will incorporate some of the Guardians of the Galaxy… That’ll be very interesting, nobody knows, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything.”
James Gunn had previously confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will take place after the fourth Thor movie. It has not been revealed how big a role the Guardians will play in the film.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) on a script co-written by him and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Someone Great), which will be the followup to Waititi’s wildly successful 2017 sequel Thor: Ragnarok. Natalie Portman is set to return as Jane and will wield the mighty Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will also return as Thor and Valkyrie, respectively. Christian Bale will portray the main antagonist in the film. The female Thor storyline is based on Jason Aaron’s run on “The Mighty Thor” in which a cancer-stricken Jane Foster takes up the mantle and powers of Thor.
Thor and Valkyrie were last seen in this year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, with the god of thunder entrusting his responsibilities as the King of Asgard to Valkyrie as he joins the Guardians of the Galaxy on their next mission.
Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive in theaters on November 5, 2021.
