Chris Pratt lands in Australia ahead of filming for Marvel’s Thor: Love And Thunder 

Marvel recently confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt would reprise his role as Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, in the new movie Thor: Love and Thunder. 

And on Friday morning, the actor, 41, landed in Australia via a private jet from Los Angeles alongside his co-stars, as they prepare to film the new movie Down Under in the coming weeks.

Chris, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan were pictured shortly after touching down at Sydney Airport, before the group headed off to begin their mandatory 14-day quarantine in a hotel amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chris cut a casual figure as he got off the plane with his entourage.

Despite wearing a protective mask and oversized sunglasses, the Jurassic World star was recognisable thanks to his hunky stature and confident bravado.

He wore a black jumper and trousers for the occasion, and kept things casual with a pair of Adidas sneakers and a baseball cap.

Scottish actress Karen Gillan, who has starred in films such as Jumanji and Avengers: Endgame, was also spotted disembarking on Friday.

He donned a white face mask for the occasion, which matched well with his black-and-white baseball cap.

A day before their arrival, Chris had let slip that he was starring in Thor alongside Byron Bay based Chris Hemsworth during an interview with actor Tom Holland on Instagram live.

‘I’m excited to go a country that took the lock down very serious and eradicated the disease and now they’re fully up and back to normal,’ he said of his upcoming trip.

‘That’ll be so good there and to go to like a restaurant,’ he continued.

A surprised Tom, 24, responded: ‘Wait a minute, did you just say you’re going to be in Thor? That’s so crazy.’

‘Yeah… am I not supposed to say that?’ Chris replied, to which Tom said: ‘I feel like no one knew that bro.’

Chris then attempted to reassure himself by saying: ‘No they knew that I think, they knew that.. If they didn’t know now.’

On the Thor front, Love And Thunder is the follow up to 2017’s massively successful third installment in the series, titled Thor: Ragnarok.

Like that film, the fourth Thor movie will be directed by Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth.

Notably, Love And Thunder will welcome back Oscar winner Natalie Portman to the franchise, who last played her role of Jane Foster in the less successful second chapter of Thor in 2013, titled Thor: The Dark World.

And in the new film, she is said to be taking on the mantle of Thor, thereby becoming the first female actor to do so.

Another Academy Award winner set to appear in Love And Thunder is Christian Bale, who is said to be cast in an as-yet undisclosed villainous role.

Thor: Love And Thunder is currently slated for release in February of 2022.
