The MCU continues to set up the multiverse. Chris Pratt will appear as Star Lord in Thor: Love and Thunder, per Variety.
Star Lord was last seen in Avengers: Endgame taking off for space with Thor in tow. His presence in the next Thor film makes logical sense. The exact plot is being kept under lock and key at this time.
Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tessa Thompson will reprise their roles as Thor, Jane Foster, and Valkyrie respectively. New additions to the cast include Pratt and Christian Bale. It is rumored Bale will be the big bad. Taika Waititi will direct and voice Korg in the film.
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit tentatively theaters in February 2022.
