Stranger Things Star Rumored To Be Playing Kid Loki In Thor: Love And Thunder

Loki MCU

Though it may seem like a ways away – particularly in a climate where films are being delayed left, right, and center – Thor: Love and Thunder is still one of the most-anticipated comic book movies coming down the pike.

Directed once again by Taika Waititi, who quickly established himself as a favorite among Marvel fans after the really rather excellent Ragnarok – not to mention his quirky performances as Korg across both Ragnarok and Avengers: EndgameLove and Thunder is said to chronicle the story of Jane Foster as she rises to become the Mighty Thor.

That’ll be the centerpiece of Waititi’s 2021 sequel, but there are still plenty of other subplots to keep us intrigued. And while story details are being kept locked away within the vaults of Marvel HQ, the potential addition of Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has certainly fueled speculation.

In fact, the latest Internet scuttlebutt suggests Wolfhard has actually been cast to play Young Loki, whose involvement will be explained further in the upcoming Loki spinoff series due to hit Disney+.

Keep in mind that this rumor comes from 4Chan, and should therefore be treated with heightened suspicion. That being said, WGTC already reported that Wolfhard was being eyed the other month, so our scoop may’ve been confirmed here.

This is by no means the only tidbit to emerge relating to Thor: Love and Thunder though, after alleged intel claimed that Beta Ray Bill has been identified, along with the Revengers lineup. But again, given that Thor 4 is so early in development, take this with a pinch of salt.

Thor: Love and Thunder is due to land on November 5th, 2021 – you know, assuming the decision to postpone Black Widow indefinitely doesn’t have a knock-on effect on the rest of the MCU lineup. We’ll keep you posted as this situation evolves.
