Thor: Love and Thunder quickly developing into a significant case, cast-wise. Aside from the recurring cast from previous Thor movies, the film will also feature Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, and now the Daily Mail has published photos of two other Guardians of the Universe actors arriving in Australia to start shooting.
We see in the pictures Chris Pratt is joined by Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, and Dave Bautista, who plays Draw. Sean Gunn, who does the motion capture for Rocket and portrays Kraglin, would also be part of the Protectors entourage. We also know that Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, will play a part Love and thunder. It is still unclear whether the Guardians will star in the events of the movie, or if they will play a minor role in the main story that focuses on Thor.
Thor: Love and Thunder seems fairly well represented on the Guardians of the Galaxy side. The only two big names missing are Groot, which was created entirely via CGI, and Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana. Especially the absence of the last character is interesting.
Avengers: Endgame ended with the present Gamora still dead, while the Gamora who had traveled from the past to the present has fled. The Guardians had decided to go into deep space in search of Gamora, and that will presumably serve as the central storyline of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will take place before the events of Thor: Love and Thunder.
Since Gamora doesn’t appear to be part of the Guardians in Love and thunder, that means the mission to save her Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will not work? Gamora has already died once, so killing her again seems unnecessary. Could her story end with Gamora renouncing an adventurous life with the Guardians to settle into peaceful retirement somewhere on a farm, much like her father Thanos did after completing his mission with the Infinity Stones?
While the Guardians appear in Love and thunder will be welcome, it is the role of the main villain played by Christian Bale that fans are most excited about. The actor will play Gorr, the God Butcher, an immensely powerful entity who travels from universe to universe, slaughtering every deity he encounters. Even with the help of the Guardians and a female God of Thunder played by Natalie Portman, Thor will have a hard time fighting from toe to toe against a villain who killed countless gods for him.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. The film will hit theaters on May 6, 2022. This news comes from DailyMail.com.
