Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord would be joining Marvel Studios’ fourth Thor film, Thor: Love and Thunder.
The news isn’t much of a surprise as Groot voice actor Vin Diesel teased in June that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be involved in Love and Thunder in some capacity. Vin Diesel recently arrived in Australia where the film will be filming in the next few weeks. Also, the crossover makes sense as Thor was last seen aboard Star-Lord’s spaceship in the closing scenes of Avengers: Endgame.
