MCU fans will have to wait longer before they get to see Thor 4 in theaters. Director Taika Waititi, however, thinks this is a good thing for the movie.
Thor 4 will no longer drop in theaters on its original release date. The delay is largely due to Marvel Studios’ decision to transfer the release dates of other MCU movies. Director Taika Waititi thinks this could be a good thing for Thor: Love and Thunder.
According to the New Zealand-based director, it will give him more time to perfect the script. He confirmed that he has already undergone several re-writes on the project.

Thor 4 movie news
After the third movie became a hit, a lot of fans now look forward to Thor: Love and Thunder. With Taika Waititi at the helm, they expect that the film would have the same self-referential approach to the material.
Last year, Marvel Studios confirmed that Natalie Portman will return to the franchise. She played astrophysicist Jane Foster in the first two movies and acted as the love interest to the titular character. Jane Foster will reportedly become the female version of Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Chris Hemsworth on Thor: Love and Thunder script
Chris Hemsworth recently confirmed that he has already read the script for Thor: Love and Thunder. He already thinks that the movie could be a major addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s one of the best scripts I’ve read in years. It’s Taika at his most extreme, and at his best. If the version I read is the one we get running with, it’s going to be pretty insane.
Extraction becomes big success for Netflix
In other Chris Hemsworth news, the Australian actor recently made his Netflix debut through the movie Extraction. After bowing last month, the action flick has already become a major success for the streaming service.
The streamer confirmed that the action movie is on its way to reaching 90 million households in its first month. This made Extraction the biggest film premiere on the platform ever. According to a report, the action flick had the advantage of millions of people sheltering in their homes because of the pandemic.
