Thor: Love and Thunder Moving Filming Locations Due To COVID!
Hollywood continues to find new ways to get movie productions moving in a safe and secure way as the Coronavirus pandemic continues. Read on…
CelebnMovies247.com reports Thor: Love and Thunder is already one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe flicks that will begin production soon.
With that said the production has been forced to move locations to avoid COVID-19.
This week, it was reported that 3 Scream 5 crew members tested positive for COVID, so productions have to do everything they can to keep the cast and crew safe.
Tom Cruise rented a cruise ship to keep the cast safe, and Jurassic World Dominion mists the set with antibiotics to keep cast and crew healthy.
Now, the fourth Thor film will need to shoot in a new location to avoid COVID-19. Marvel is making sure if they are going to start shooting in Australia soon everything is safe for the cast and crew.
Thor: Love and Thunder is already expected to start filming early next year at Sydney’s Fox Studios. This is the same location where Thor: Ragnarok was shot so it would be an ideal place to work on the sequel.
What we’ve learned via ES:
The Daily Telegraph revealed that there are plans to find a safer location, and Warner Bros. Studios at Oxenford, north of the Gold Coast, is currently being considered.
It’s not exactly a huge surprise that production will be moved for Love and Thunder. After all, safety is still the main priority for all productions due to COVID-19. With that in mind, this is the best option for the cast and crew right now so we’re hoping that it works out well for them.
Love and Thunder isn’t the only Marvel film that’s supposed to be filmed near Sydney. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was expected to film in New South Wales earlier this year but had to be put on hold due to COVID-19.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Taika Waititi and will also bring back Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson. Christian Bale has reportedly been cast in the film and is expected to play the main villain.
The movie is scheduled for release on February 11, 2022.
