The director of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘, Taika Waititi, says he has interests in expanding the God of Thunder franchise in the MCU. In a recent interview with Fandom, the director said that he would love to see a spin-off series focused on Valkyrie and Korg come to the Disney+.
“I would love to see a Valkyrie derivative. A Korg spin-off would be cool too.”said taika.
Both characters will be present in the fourth Thor movie. Of Tessa Thompson’s return to the role of Valkyrie, Waititi said, “she has to do all the things that they never talk about when you’re supposed to rule the people, which is handle all the infrastructure and figure out the economy and get the visit of delegates from other countries. So she’s been spending a lot of time not fighting, and all her new battles have to do with ruling her people.”
The film features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he has ever faced: the quest for self-knowledge. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, being the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
As the film will include the participation of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (waititi) Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), nebula (Karen Gillan), Drax (Dave Bautista), mantis (Pom Klementieff), Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voice of Vin Diesel), there are several possibilities for this novel.
The cast is also made up of Jaime Alexander (Lady Sif), Jeff Goldblum (Grand Master), Christian Bale (Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods) and Russell Crowe (Zeus).
Melissa McCarthy will play the “fake version” of Hela in the Asgard theater troupe, alongside Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill.
Michael Giacchino (‘Batman’, ‘Ratatouille’) is responsible for the soundtrack.
