Thor: Ragnarok was a big, loud, colourful, fun, crazy Marvel movie. I loved it to bits, and I loved the direction director Taika Waititi took with the movie, and I cannot wait to see what he does with his follow-up movie, Thor: Love And Thunder.
First thing’s first, the name is brilliant. Thor: Love And Thunder is simply put, perfect for this new version of Thor that Chris Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi came up with.
Waititi is also now writing the movie, which I think will merely add to Thor: Love And Thunder’s brilliance. He hasn’t made a movie I haven’t loved yet, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what he does with his next picture, Jojo Rabbit.
Whilst on the red carpet for Jojo Rabbit, Waititi was asked about Thor: Love And Thunder by Entertainment Tonight, and he revealed that he wants it to be more fun, crazier and even bigger than Ragnarok.
Thor: Love And Thunder, bigger and better than Thor: Ragnarok?

“Well, if you take Ragnarok – which is a very outlandish and big, bombastic film – we’re trying to double down on everything we did with that,” Waititi began.
He continued: “And create something that’s even more crazy, more fun, and even more of a big, big adventure.
“I don’t really decide this… but Thor and Korg are a bit of a duo in [Love and Thunder]. So, my character’s coming back, and we’ll see both of them together,” he finished.
I love everything about what Waititi is saying here. After coming out of Thor: Ragnarok, the first thing I wanted to do was go right back into the cinema and watch it again, and that doesn’t happen to me that often.

It was one of my favourite Marvel movies, and it sounds like they’re going to take everything that was good about the movie and just do more of it for Thor: Love And Thunder.
Count me in. I cannot wait to watch this one. What do you think? Are you looking forward to Thor: Love And Thunder? Let us know in the comments below.
