According to a video report by Australian paparazzi Kobie Thatcher, Vin Diesel has arrived in Australia and is headed for the set of Thor: Love and Thunder. The actor voices the character Groot, who originated in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but after the events of Infinity War and Endgame, Thor and the Guardians have become entangled. It was revealed last week that Chris Pratt will be appearing in Thor: Love and Thunder as well, as his character Star-Lord.
Diesel and Pratt will join Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, Natalie Portman reprising the role of Jane Foster, who will also become Thor, Tessa Thompson returning as Valkyrie and ruler of Asgard, and Christian Bale taking on the role of a mysterious villain. Taika Waititi is directing and will also once again be playing Korg.
This is a movie I am so looking forward to! Thor: Ragnarok was so surprising and fun, and Waititi has said that Love and Thunder will be a much bigger and crazier film, so it’s exciting to think about. I also love the inclusion of the Guardians characters because Pratt and Hemsworth have such a hilarious chemistry, and Groot is a fun character that I love to see evolve.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set to arrive in theaters on February 11th, 2022. Are you getting excited?
