Thor: Love and Thunder has been announced at San Diego Comic Con 2019. One of a handful of new properties to arrive as part of Marvel Phase 4, Thor 4 will continue the story of Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder post-Avengers: Endgame and also introduce a female Thor - played by none other than Natalie Portman. Tessa Thompson will also return as Valkyrie.

Taika Waititi will be back to direct the film, having also helmed Thor: Ragnarok. Waititi apparently moved on from his live-action adaptation of Akira to get to work on Thor 4. 

Thor: Love and Thunder, which will take inspiration from Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor run, will reach cinemas November 5, 2021.
