Thor: love and thunder has officially started filming in Australia. On Instagram, star Chris Hemsworth Filming began with a ceremony where Indigenous Australians greeted the cast and crew with a special ceremony welcoming them to the country. The actor posted several photos from the event, including one of him alongside director Taika Waititi and many of the dancers who had dressed up for the ceremony.
“A wonderful start for our shoot today with a Welcome to Country ceremony by the Gamay dancers from the Gadigal and Bidiagal nations and performance and Karakia by the Maori dancers from Te Aranganui,” Hemsworth writes in the caption.
He adds: “Indigenous Australians may be just as proud of this land, but many see January 26 as the date to start dispossession, disease epidemics, border violence, cultural destruction, exploitation, abuse, family separation and submission under the politics of extreme social control. Let us begin with the healing and stand together in unity and support with our First Nations with solidarity and compassion. Let us find a date when all Australians can celebrate this beautiful land together. “
Waititi also co-wrote the script for Thor: love and thunder with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, and although we know the film serves as a sequel to 2017 THOR: RagnarokDetails of the plot have not yet been released. What is known is that The dark knight Star Christian Bale was cast as the main villain, Gorr the God Butcher. Natalie Portman will also return as Jane to lead Mjolnir as Mighty Thor, inspired by the original Marvel Comics storylines. Tessa Thompson will also return as Valkyrie, and Matt Damon is currently on the set to also appear in the film.
We can assume that the characters from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy will also be seen in the sequel, as many of the cast were recently spotted near the set. It was previously announced and confirmed that Chris Pratt will be in the film as the Star-Lord. Then it was reported that he will be accompanied by Jaimie Alexander as Mantis and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer. Sean Gunn, who does motion capture for Rocket Raccoon, is also in Australia, presumably to serve as Rocket’s replacement for Rocket on the set.
Guardian of the Galaxy will also bring these characters back for another custom sequel starring James Gunn, who will be back on top in 2023. Along with Thor 4Both titles are part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which begins in May with the premiere of Black widow. This year the publications of Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings and Eternal, while sequels to other great MCU films like Doctor strange, Spider-Man: Far from home, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Ant man and the wasp are also in the works.
