It’s an exciting time to be a fan of the MCU’s hammer-wielding Asgardian as Thor: Love and Thunder will reportedly begin filming soon and while other stuff about the film top-billed by Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman has yet to come our way, we now know what the upcoming MCU project’s working title would be and it might have just given away an important plot detail concerning Thor himself.
According to Skyler Shuler of DisInsider, Thor 4’s working title will be The Big Salad. To those who failed to catch it in Avengers: Endgame, the title is a direct reference to what Frigga told 2023 Thor after noticing his son’s drastic weight gain when he went back in time to retrieve the Aether aka the Reality Stone. It’s a nice bit of reference which could also mean that the worthy one will get back in shape in the fourth film.

We still know very little about the film but in my view, at least, Thor: Love and Thunder could revolve around Odinson’s redemption arc. Sure, he still proved that he’s a vital part of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes during the latter part of Endgame but it was quite obvious that he lost his vigor, not to mention his confidence. Jane Foster’s return to the franchise could also mean that she’ll be pivotal in bringing her former love’s self-assurance back and by the end of the film, we could see an even mightier Thor and that idea is totally exciting!
Other details about Thor: Love and Thunder are still being kept under wraps.
