THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Will Keep RAGNAROK's Same "Bold, Bright And Crazy" Tone According To Taika Waititi

Chris Hemsworth's Odinson has arguably underwent the wildest character arc in the MCU when you consider his 2011 debut in the Shakespearean Thor and his comedic re-invention in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Taika Waititi to discuss his latest film, JoJo Rabbit, and reveal that the publication has selected the New Zealand director as one of their Entertainers of the Year. Over the course of the interview (which you can watch below), the conversation turned towards Waititi's Ragnarok follow-up, Thor: Love and Thunder.

Based on Waititi's comments, don't expect the God of Hammers Thunder to revert back to earlier portrayals of the character depicted in previous installments from Kenneth Branagh (Thor), Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron).

"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."

Love and Thunder will loosely adapt 2015's The Mighty Thor story arc from Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, which saw a cancer-stricken Jane Foster become the new "Thor." The storyline itself was a play on a1987 What If? one-shot which depicted Jane finding Mjolnir instead of Donald Blake and adapting the superhero name Thordis

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to hit theaters November 5, 2021.
