As Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder moves closer to its production start, star Chris Hemsworth recently revealed how much fun he had reading the screenplay by director Taika Waititi and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. More fun, in fact, than he had reading the script for Thor: Ragnarok.

In an interview with Poland’s Elle Man, Hemsworth said [translated] “I can’t reveal anything about the plot, but to satisfy your curiosity, I will say that reading the script I had a lot more fun than on Thor Ragnarok, and that shows something because that movie was brilliant.”

Hemsworth also said “After reading the script, I can say that I am very excited. For sure in this production, there will be a lot of love and a lot of lightning. I’m glad that after everything that happened in Avengers: Endgame, I’m still part of the Marvel Universe and we can continue the story of Thor.”

Christian Bale was cast as the villain in Love and Thunder, though there’s been no official news on who the character is exactly.

Thor: Love and Thunder was originally slated to hit theaters in 2021 but it has been pushed back several times since that initial announcement. The movie is now scheduled for release on February 11, 2022.
