When Thor returns to the big screen, it is going to be epic...

The fourth solo outing for the superhero god will be 'Thor: Love and Thunder'; and, as fans ought to know by now, it's going to be directed by Taika Waititi, who directed the hit sequel 'Thor: Ragnarok'.

Its star Chris Hemsworth teased the movie in a recent interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer.

He's currently promoting his next Netflix movie, 'Extraction', but gave hints about the Marvel threequel too.

He describes 'Love and Thunder' as "pretty insane", saying "it's one of the best scripts I've read in years."

He continued: "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."

Waititi has gained a rep for his eccentric comedies 'What We Do in the Shadows' and 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' and his aesthetic ended up sutiing Thor's world to a tee.

The director teased his upcoming movie earlier this month too during an Instagram live, telling viewers: "We're like four or five drafts in now.

"It's one of those ones where I can't wait to do it. There's so many great, great things in it. It's so over the top now, in the very best way. It makes 'Ragnarok' look like a really run-of-the-mill, very safe film.

"This new film feels like we asked 10-year-olds what should be in a movie, and then we said yes to every single thing. Space sharks, if you know anything about the comics... That's all I'm gonna say... Space sharks."

'Thor: Love and Thunder' has a release date of February 28, 2022.
