The Marvel Cinematic Universe is rich in its diverse characters, and one of the most famous superheroes in the universe is the Thunder and Lightning God. However, in the comics, the name of this character was taken by another heroine, and a television project about her has already been developed - the release date for the film “Thor: Love and Thunder” (2021) is known in Russia, the plot and actors have been announced, and the trailer has not been released.
The rating rating for film premieres (KinoPoisk) is 98%.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Genre: fantasy, action, adventure
Producer: Thai Taichi
World Release Date: November 5, 2021
Cast: Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Jose Alfredo Fernandez and others.
The last time viewers saw the original Thor in the movie "Avengers: Final", when he went to travel with the Guardians of the Galaxy. How did it happen that his former lover, Jane Foster, gained superpowers and became the God of thunder and lightning?
The original comics describe how Jane Foster acquired superpowers. This happened during the heroine’s fight with cancer. The hammer Mjolnir helped the girl stay alive and endowed with powerful abilities. However, in the movie Thor: Ragnarok, Mjolnir was completely destroyed, although the metal from which he was made seems to have remained on Earth. It is possible the parts will be reassembled, and Jane Foster will be able to be endowed with the power of Thor after she raises the hammer.
Director and shooting
The bizarre indie director Taika Vaitichi (“Real Ghouls,” “Ghoul Hunt,” “Eagle Against Sharks,” “What We Do in the Shadow,”) helped the Thor franchise get out of a depressed state with a colorful, funny storytelling. It is he who will become the screenwriter, as well as the director of the 4th part.

The world release date for the movie "Tor 4" is set for November 5, 2021, and the fastest tape will be released in France on November 3, 2021.
