During a press junket for Taika Waititi’s newest film, Jo Jo Rabbit, Entertainment Weekly (via CBM) caught up with the director to talk about the third installment of the Thor franchise. Not much is known about the plot or even the file itself, but little tidbits have been coming out to give us an idea of how the film will turn out.
What we know so far is that Jane will become the next Thor as she does in the 2015 Thor series, The Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron. In the series, Jan gets terminal cancer and is selected to become the next Thor: The Goddess of Thunder. The film is expected to be based loosely on the source material; however, nothing is confirmed.
“The next Thor film I’m doing, basically, we’re sort of launching ourselves again on this adventure film, really. That was the thing really that I loved about doing Ragnarok, it felt like we were just putting Thor on a really cool adventure. There’s always like new things to see and do, and this one, I think we’re gonna double down a lot on that and have it bigger, bolder and brighter. There’s just gonna be some really crazy stuff in the film.” -Taika Waititi
Sounds like Waititi has a really great idea of where he’s taking the film. Expect a lot more news about the film in the coming months.
You can catch Thor: Love and Thunder in theaters November 5, 2021.
