Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Taika Waititi. During the event, Taika said, "That storyline is incredible is full emotion, love and thunder and introduces for the first time female Thor." Taika also added that the story will be taken from an existing comics story titled The Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson have officially been confirmed to return in Thor: Love and Thunder which is set to release on November 5, 2021.
Natalie had been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since the early days, first appearing in the 2011's Thor as astrophysicist Jane Foster and returned for Thor: The Dark World in 2013. But she bowed out of Thor: Ragnarok with Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie stepping in as the new female lead. Back then she said, "As far as I know, I’m done. I mean, I don’t know if maybe one day they’ll ask for an Avengers 7 or whatever, I have no idea. But as far as I know, I’m done. It was a great thing to be a part of."
