Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder production date revealed

A recent casting call in Australia has confirmed that Thor: Love and Thunder will begin production in January. The movie will see Natalie Portman take over as The Mighty Thor.

Unlike any of the other original Avengers, Thor has managed to earn himself a fourth movie, after a great fan response to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.

Tackling different angles to the superhero seems to come easy for Chris Hemsworth, with his Avengers: Endgame approach to Thor giving fans quite the surprise too.

That being said, it seems the actor is set to bow out in Love and Thunder, after it was revealed that he will be handing his mantle down to love interest, Jane.

When is Thor: Love and Thunder starting production?

Chris Hemsworth originally mentioned plans to start work on the movie in early 2021, after it faced delays due to the ongoing health crisis.

However, new details on stand-ins for the movie have given an idea of how long production is set to be going on for in Sydney.

A casting call shared on StarNow showed three stand-ins/photo doubles were required for a ‘major feature film’ being shot in Fox Studios in 2021.

Though not confirmed to be Thor: Love and Thunder, the descriptions for each role have a clear connection to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Natalie Portman’s Jane, and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie.

On top of this, it says production is set to run from January to June 2021.

From the same member on the platform, a call for people of all ages – five foot or less – was also shared. It mentioned that filming will be in the same time period and location, so is likely to also be connected to the project.

When is Thor: Love and Thunder coming out?

The release date for Thor: Love and Thunder is February 11, 2022.

Natalie Portman recently spoke about her growing role in the MCU on The Kelly Clarkson Show, hinting at what was in store for her character.

“She does have powers,” explained Portman. “It’s not exactly the same as Thor – it’s her own version of it – and she’s called The Mighty Thor.”

With the actress already in Australia preparing for the movie, along with director Taika Waititi and Christian Bale, who is expected to play the villain, it seems it won’t be long at all until filming begins.

Actress Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, is going viral after making an account on TikTok – but her lowkey username means that many users are actually stumbling across her account by accident.

The recent buzz surrounding video-sharing app TikTok has got millions of people gravitating towards it to try out some of the viral trends that the app has become most notable for.

This includes a wide range of celebrities who have made accounts to connect with their fans, including Jason Derulo, Lizzo, and more.

TikTok’s user base is growing bigger by the day.

But not every famous person was upfront about their decision to make an account, keeping it quiet to see who would end up finding them first. In November 2020, singer Billie Eilish snuck onto TikTok with a bizarre username that had fans questioning if the account really belonged to her.

Now, actress Maisie Williams seems to be the latest celebrity to join up, under the username ‘lil.hustla.’

The first video from the account was posted on January 30 2021, and she’s since gone on to post many videos that have racked up hundreds of thousands of views and likes.

Her account has already managed to get over 340,000 followers, but that seems like nothing compared to the 10 million followers she has on her verified Instagram account. Although some have dubbed it ‘TikTok’s best-kept secret,’ it seems like the cat is already out of the bag, as some of the star’s videos have up to five million views.

In one video, where people use the Stitch feature to answer the question, “what is your favorite celebrity interview moment,” Maisie included the viral Jimmy Fallon interview in which she pranked viewers by pretending she’d dropped a major spoiler for Game of Thrones.

This was alongside other videos trying out a variety of filters such as the time warp filter, and recreating some of TikToks’ most popular dances.

While lil.hustla does appear to be Maisie Williams’ actual account as her Instagram account is linked in the profile, she’s not currently verified, and people have managed to make some rather convincing fake celebrity accounts in the past for actors like Tom Holland.

Regardless, the lowkey account has certainly been entertaining fans of the star, and it’s got people wondering which other celebrities could already be on TikTok without anyone else knowing.
