It’s finally happening. Filming for Thor: Love And Thunder is underway in Sydney and we’ve gotten a good look at Thor’s new look.
It seems like a life time since things came to a colossal end with Avengers: Endgame.
Despite all of our emotions (and the tears), we all knew that it technically wasn’t the end, as Marvel are keeping us satisfied by pumping out the movies and series left right and centre.
While a lot of attention has been centred around all of the new shows coming to Disney+, with Wanda Vision and the upcoming Loki series, it’s time to draw our focus to the next Thor movie: Love and Thunder.
Now that restrictions have eased with COVID (and looking past the massive delays), filming has been able to officially kick off in Sydney.
And a wild Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt who plays, Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy have been spotted in costume in Sydney.

It looks like Thor back on his bullshit and laying off the video games and beers… kind of want him to bring back the dad bod though.
Filming began off about a week ago in Sydney’s Centennial Park, with director Taiki Waitii marking the occasion with a Welcome to Country ceremony from the Gamay dancers of the Gadigal and Bidiagal Nation and a performance and karakia by Maori dancers from Te Aranganui.
According to Tech Radar, at this point there is scarce information on what the plot of the film is actually about.
But what we do know is that Natalie Portman is back to play Jane Foster, Christina Bale will play the film’s villain (Gorr the God Butcher) and Tessa Thompson is back as Valkyrie.
Something we do know for sure though? As per news.com.au, the film’s production is set to inject $178 million into the local economy, create 2500 jobs and use the services of 1650 Australian businesses.
