In October 2021, Disney announced date changes for several Marvel films, including moving from its initial March 2022 release to May 6, which was the initial date for. This caused a chain reaction, pushing on its new July 8 date, pushing until November 11, 2022, and then pushed the sequel,, to 2023.

Thor: Love and Thunder cast

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe progresses, the cast of the cast of will feature a varied set of new and fan favorite characters, but first and foremost, Chris Hemsworth will be stepping up to the role of Thor in seven MCU movies, including his three solo movies and all four Avengers films (its eight if you want to count his post-credits appearance in )

Hemsworth hasn''t just been confined to the MCU, however. During his time as Thor, he has also started in movies such as, and, to name a few, and has evolved into one of the most popular actors today. He has a knack for balancing action and comedy roles, which he has certainly demonstrated.

While other original Avengers actors like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson have seen their characters arcs come to an end, Hemsworth continues to roll along as Thor. While there is a possibility his title as God of Thunder will be passed to someone else in Natalie Portman.

Portman was a scientist and Thor loved Jane Foster although they did not appear in the movie (it was explained that the pair had broken up); her character was confirmed early in the process that Jane would become the superpowered Mighty Thor in this new film (see some conceptual artwork below). Outside of the MCU, Portman is known mostly for her Oscar-winning role in and her role as Padme Amidala in the prequels, but she has a career that spans back to when she was a kid.

Hemsworth and Portman are leading the way, but the pair is packed with other fan-favorite Marvel characters. Tessa Thompson is confirmed to reprise her role as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander is returning as Korg, but the other members, though, will be members of the (Thor left with them at the end of ), according to Chris Pratts Peter Quill, Karen Gillans Nebula, Sean Gunns Kraglin, Dave Bautista''s Drax

Sam Neil, Luke Hemsworth, and Matt Damon are returning as Odin, Thor, and Loki play, while Melissa McCarthy is expected to play villain Hela in the future.

The plot will have a little more impact on McCarthy, but there are two big changes. Christian Bale, who already has superhero experience playing Batman in the Christopher Nolans trilogy, is slated as the villain, Gorr the God Butcher. Another Oscar-winning actor is entering the MCU after appearing in a DC film (), as Russell Crowe is slated to play Zeus.

Thor: Love and Thunder director

Taika Waititi is back as the writer and director of a series starring Korg out of the box office. After receiving close universal praise for it.

The actor/director in New Zealand has become a big player in Hollywood. Starting out his career with smaller films like and, Waititi started to get acclaim with the comedies (the film that influenced the hit TV show) and. He followed up with (for which he won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay).

Waititi is set to play a new 2022 film and the HBO Max original television series.

Thor: Love and Thunder plot

The official synopsis for the day is here:

"The film examines Thor on a journey unlike anything he had ever encountered, such as inner peace. But his retirement is enlisted by Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the death of the gods. Thor obtains the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who to Thors surprise inexplicably wield his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they discover the mystery of the God Butcher

How will Thor: Love and Thunder affect the MCU?

Phase 4 of the MCU has been putting out the concept of the multiverse. While the new film literally has multiverse in its title, it is difficult to say if the multiverse will be a factor in its story.

What we can make educated assumptions on is how the story will impact the characters. With Jane Foster returning and taking on the title of Mighty Thor, it is possible that Chris Hemsworth might resign in the MCU and Natalie Portman in future films, or they might become a package agreement.

As their next film is expected in 2023, you may well know where things will go with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Perhaps another Marvel character will appear and surprise us. Can we, however, imagine a movie without Loki?
