Karen Gillan: Thor 4 Will Have You on the Floor
In an interview with Collider about her new movie, Gunpowder Milkshake, Karen Gillan said that the script for Thor 4: Love and Thunder was writer/director Taika Waititi at his “most Taika.”
According to Gillan, Thor may be even more funny in this movie than he was in the previous installment in the series, Thor: Ragnarok (2017). This tracks with Waititi’s statement that Thor: Love and Thunder is “the craziest” movie he’s ever done.
The movie will see Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) lifting Mjolnir and taking over as the Goddess of Thunder, which we think will afford Chris Hemsworth’s Thor plenty of opportunity for comedic reaction!
Thor: Love and Thunder has completed filming and is scheduled for release on May 6th, 2022.
But in the meantime, you can enjoy the movie that Gillan was actually promoting when Collider asked her about Thor.
The R-rated Gunpowder Milkshake was released beginning yesterday, July 15th, 2021, in theaters, and it’s also now available for streaming on Netflix.

Gunpowder Milkshake follows Gillan, who plays an assassin who works for the shady organization The Firm… but when she ends up on the organizations bad side, she’ll have to fight for her right to survive!
In her review of the movie over at The Beat, Therese Lacson said that although the movie has no twists, “Gillan needs to be an action lead more often because she’s amazing at it.”
Did someone say, “Nebula solo film?”
Plus, this movie also has some amazing supporting cast members, including Angela Bassett (Black Panther), Lena Headley (Game of Thrones), and Michelle Yeoh (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Star Trek: Discovery).
