Asked who the star of Love and Thunder was, Waititi told MTV News, "It's Chris. It's a Thor film. He is Thor, it's a Thor film. She's (Portman) in it."

During the panel discussion at comic con, Waititi had said, "That storyline is incredible is full emotion, love, and thunder and introduces for the first time female Thor."

Also featuring Tessa Thompson, Thor: Love And Thunder is scheduled to release on 5 November, 2021.
