'Thor: Love And Thunder': Fans say Loki better be in the film, 'He carried the franchise for years'
'Thor: Love And Thunder' is trending on Twitter despite it releasing only in 2022, however, it's not for Odin son Thor but for the god of mischief, Loki
'Thor: Love And Thunder' isn't expected to be in theatres for at least another two years, but that's not stopping fans from making it trend furiously on Twitter. On June 14 afternoon, fans began to discuss which 2022 film they're looking forward to the most and most of the Marvel films began to trend, including 'Thor: Love And Thunder', 'Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness', 'Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2', and 'Black Panther 2'. Initially meant to release in November 2021, the Taika Watiti film has been pushed further to 2022, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with Total Film earlier this year, the director said the delays are allowing him to really work harder on the script. "No, I can’t. I can’t at all," Waititi responded when asked whether not he could share any Love and Thunder secrets. "But the other thing is, there are a few positive things I can take away [from the Covid-19 crisis]. One of them is that a lot of these films, and films in general, are rushed, or you don’t have as much time as you’d want to have on the script and things like that.
"We’re still writing Love And Thunder, and I think it’s good to just keep writing, and then you know, we’ll have a really, really good script. And with writing, especially, you should use as much of that time as possible to get your story right, because you never really get it later on. Film is an industry where you’re always complaining about not having enough time. I think, right now, we’ve given ourselves a huge amount of time to work on all sort of things, so we may as well use it."
Meanwhile, fans have a lot to say about the upcoming film. Posting a video of Tessa Thompson, who plays the role of Valkyrie in the MCU, one fan tweeted, "Since Thor 4 is trending it seems a perfect time to remind y’all SHE’S OUR NEW KING OF ASGARD!!!"
Another wrote, "Thor 4 has natalie portman playing jane foster as the mighty thor, valkyrie finding her queen of asgard, christian bale as the villain and taika waititi writing and directing the movie. thor: love and thunder is going to be so powerful..."
Some are disheartened that Tom Hiddleston's Loki would not be in the film. "I don't know if I'm in the minority here, but I still can't wrap my head around Thor 4 without Loki. Tom Hiddleston basically carried that franchise for 7 years," another tweeted. Another said: "Ok so is Loki coming back in Thor 4 or nah...the people want to know."
A fan who loves the sibling rivalry in the film said: "If I do not see Loki in Thor 4 I’m going to loose my mind, we need THOR AND LOKI TOGETHER ."
"Loki better be in it," a fan wrote. "Thor 4 is gonna be jane and valkyrie’s love story i won’t accept anything else <3," another tweeted.
