The new Marvel movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, is in making. Guess who will be playing Thor? Yes, you’re right. That’s a stupid question to ask. Nobody can play Thor better than the one and only Chris Hemsworth. Thor is going to come better and stronger in the upcoming Taika Waititi directorial.
Although, creators have kept information related to the plot, including pictures and videos private. But, all of this couldn’t prevent Chris from sharing a cool video, sporting a Thor wig on Tuesday.
The video featured Chris and his son. In the video, the young little boy was wearing a red cloak while he was improving his fighting skills with the real ‘Thor’, his father.
The video had an interesting caption which grabbed the attention of the public as well as the media. It read, “Introducing the next heavyweight champion of the universe.”

After this, the post became viral!
Soon after the post, Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky shared an image of father-son posing together as team members. She captioned it, “My A-Team!! // Mi Equipo A!!”
When Chris posts something, it’s not considered a regular post. It’s a phenomenon in and of itself. So, this phenomenon happened and fans became excited. Thor’s wig and his son’s style became the center of attraction.
It didn’t take a lot of time for the post to accumulate comments like, “Anyone notices the hair…? Thor’s hair….? He’s on set,” a fan said.
Another one said, “That hair is fire.” A third fan said, “Thor’s son in training.” Hemsworth’s Extraction co-star Rudhraksh Jaiswal commented, “The new avenger!”
Reportedly, the shooting of Thor: Love and Thunder, is being done in Australia. It’s been going on for a few months now. This movie is going to star Natalie Portman along with Thor. The New Zealander is making a good comeback for her 4th Thor movie.
According to reports, Portman will carry on with the role of Jane Foster. A scientist, which she played in the initial two Thor movies.
As we all know, the course of Marvel movies is unpredictable, exciting, and larger than life. Therefore, we will be expecting Thor to go beyond his limits, expand his powers, and prove that he’s one of the most powerful superheroes who can wield the Mjolnir. It must be noted, before this, we’ve seen Captain America played by Chris Evans, who wields Mjolnir.
Interestingly, this time Natalie Portman’s role will not be confined to only being Thor’s love interest. This time, she’ll be asserting her own superhero powers and this will be a treat to watch.
Something interesting about the role of ‘Thor’
Back in the days, after few films, Hemsworth was feeling restricted, particularly by the framework of Thor’s character.
He then approached the producer Kevin Feige with an unusual pitch, “After I’d done ‘Avengers’ and ‘Thor 2,’ I did feel a bit trapped,” Hemsworth says. “I felt like I was typecast by whoever was writing those scripts. Also, like the creators were stuck on where they could take the character, and was this all he had to offer? There was so much more we could do.”
After this, director Taika Waititi and the creative team worked towards recreating Thor’s character, adding a little bit of fun to its stoic nature. Finally, with the skills and efforts of Hemsworth, Thor became one of the most interesting characters of all time.
