Academy Award-winning writer/director Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) is currently in the midst of hosting an Instagram Live commentary for his 2017 Marvel blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok and to kick the evening off, he shared a few exclusive pieces of concept art from his next hotly awaited Marvel project, Thor: Love and Thunder.
None of the images are particularly revealing, at least as far as plot details are concerned, but they do offer an updated look at the expansion of New Asgard under the rule of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and also confirm the return of Miek (Stephen Murdoch), who has been revealed to actually be female.
Waititi’s Instagram Live session is currently in session, so be sure to head on over to his page now to tune into his hilarious commentary and catch up with special guests, including Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo… and maybe, Chris Hemsworth?!
In Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame) will reprise his iconic role as the titular God of Thunder with a supporting cast that will also return Tessa Thompson (Avengers: Endgame) as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman (Thor: The Dark World) as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Taika Waititi (Avengers: Endgame) as Korg and Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) as the film’s villain.
While production was originally slated to begin in August, it seems likely that it will ultimately be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which also recently pushed back the film’s release date from November 2021 to February 18, 2022.
