Thor: Love and Thunder are one of the most highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe projects right now for several reasons. For instance, it boasts of an all-star cast that appears to be getting bigger every day. So which actors and characters will appear in Thor 4? Here is the full list of confirmed cast members.
Who Will Show Up in Thor 4?
The main cast of Love and Thunder was already announced at 2019's San Diego Comic-Con. From there, the film has added two Oscar winners and more MCU stars. Check out the full list below.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson
The God of Thunder and former King of Asgard will return for yet another adventure. However, this time, Thor is a changed man after the events in Avengers: Endgame. Things are going to be very different for Hemsworth's character, especially now that his ex-girlfriend is returning in Thor 4.
Natalie Portman as Jane Foster
Jane played a major role in the first two Thor movies but disappeared in Thor: Ragnarok after she broke up with the God of Thunder. However, she will be back in the fourth film where she is expected to gain the same powers as Thor while undergoing cancer treatment.
Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
The former warrior will continue to be the King of New Asgard in Love and Thunder. But there will be some interesting developments for Valkyrie as she seeks a queen to help her rule over the kingdom.
Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif
Like Jane, Sif has last seen in Thor: The Dark World. It has been confirmed that Alexander wasn't able to return for Ragnarok due to a scheduling conflict. However, Sif is now set to return in Love and Thunder and might even play a major role in helping Valkyrie rule over Asgard.
Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher
Thompson had previously teased that Bale would play the main villain in Thor 4 but it wasn't until Disney Investor Day that his role was revealed. Gorr's supervillain origin stems from the destruction of his homeworld, leading to him realizing gods exist but did nothing to save his people. Because of this, he vows to kill them all.
Taika Waititi as Korg
The director has already confirmed that the Kronan warrior will return in Thor 4 although it is unclear whether he will play a major role in the sequel.
Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord
Pratt was the first Guardian to be confirmed to join Love and Thunder. It would later be revealed that the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in Thor 4.
Karen Gillan as Nebula
Gillan confirmed she had cut her hair so it would be easier to fit into the bald cap she wears to transform into Nebula. There is a possibility she will keep wearing her hair short until she starts working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after Thor 4.
Pom Klemtieff as Mantis
Sean Gunn as Kraglin
The latest set photos from Thor 4 feature Gunn in his GOTG costume. However, Kraglin isn't the only character he is expected to play in the sequel as he is once again to put on the mo-cap for Rocket.
Dave Bautista as Drax
Interestingly, Bautista has not been announced as an official cast member of Thor 4. However, the actor has been spotted in Sydney where the movie is being filmed.
Bradley Cooper as Rocket
Unlike his Vol.2 co-stars, Cooper is not yet in Australia. However, he is expected to join them later in production.
Vin Diesel as Groot
It's impossible to bring in the Guardians without Groot. Although Diesel's involvement in Love and Thunder has not yet been confirmed, he is expected to provide the voice of Groot in the movie.
Matt Damon as Fake Loki
It was previously reported that Damon is in Australia and is believed to return as the actor who played Loki in the stage play featured in Ragnarok. Damon has since confirmed that he is in the country to work on the sequel.
