Thor: Love and Thunder
During a recent interview with IGN, Kat Dennings stated she has yet to receive a phone call from Marvel about Thor: Love and Thunder.

Meanwhile, Sam Neill told ET “the odds are reasonably high” he will return for the movie alongside Matt Damon.
I think the odds are reasonably high. I think Taika’s got something up his sleeve. We will see what happens. Travel between [New Zealand] and Australia is problematic at the moment, but we will see if something can be worked out.
