Chris Pratt and Vin Diesel join the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder

November 17th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Looks like, as expected, the cast of characters in Thor: Love and Thunder is beefing up with a few familiar faces.

New reports have it that Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt (Starlord) and Vin Diesel (Groot) are  in Australia right now for the production of the fourth Thor movie in the MCU.

This is, of course, a rumour that has been around for a while – with Asguardians of the Galaxy being a popular fan-name before the Love and Thunder one appeared – but now it seems that, just like Thor: Ragnarok, this Thor movie will take place in the cosmic side of the MCU and it makes sense given that Thor and the Guardians were together at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Director Taika Waititi will be stepping up again, just as he did with Ragnarok and again, he’s handling writing duties too and he’ll be over seeing the Guardians stars as well as Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkryie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Christian Bale as the big bad in the movie.

So, what say you all? Are you looking forward to seeing Thor and the Guardians together? Do you think we’ll see more MCU familiar faces appearing? Let me know…

Thor: Love and Thunder is due on 18th February 2022

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
