Thor: Love And Thunder Is Riding Back To Valhalla For Reshoots Soon

"Thor: Love and Thunder" is heading in for some reshoots just a few months ahead of its scheduled theatrical release. This is not a cause for concern but it is certainly something to be aware of as this is definitely a little close to the mark, but it's something that happens so frequently in the making of major blockbusters these days that we should simply come to expect it, rather than be surprised by it.

In a report from The Wrap detailing the bomb that was Disney's "John Carter," it is mentioned that "Thor: Love and Thunder" is set to go back for reshoots in the next few weeks. So it seems that director Taika Waititi, star Chris Hemsworth, and other members of the cast have some business still to attend to. There is no word on exactly how long the reshoots will last or what they will entail, but that's to be expected. Marvel Studios keeps a tight lid on these things so the finer points of any such happenings are often left mysterious.

The movie serves as a sequel to 2017's much-acclaimed "Thor: Ragnarok," while picking up after the events of "Avengers: Endgame." Christian Bale is on board as the villain, Gorr the God Butcher, with Natalie Portman returning as Jane Foster, who is also becoming our new Thor. Tessa Thompson additionally reprises her role as Valkyrie. Most importantly, Waititi will be back in front of the camera again as well as Korg.

Nothing to worry about

It seems that every time a big movie undergoes reshoots, chatter kicks up suggesting there may be cause for alarm. But Marvel Studios wisely builds room for additional photography into its schedules to allow for changes, which has proved to be a winning strategy for them. "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" recently underwent several weeks of reshoots just ahead of its release in May. This happens all of the time and it will probably happen for every other Marvel Cinematic Universe flick on the calendar right now.

Plot details for the fourth solo "Thor" flick are currently being kept tightly under wraps. Given the timetable (so long as the movie doesn't get delayed again) we should be expecting a trailer sooner rather than later, which should help to set some expectations and shed some light. In the meantime, sit tight and look at these reshoots as a positive thing, with Marvel and Waititi doing everything they can to make the best movie possible.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" is currently set to hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
