With theaters shut down, directors are doing this new thing where they live-screen their films with some fans. Taika Waititi has recently hosted a live viewing of Thor: Ragnarok, and what’s great is, he’s actually revealed some concept art for the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
This is his post for the party:

Tomorrow (Thursday April 9). INSTAGRAM LIVE. I'll be talking about this movie while it plays in the background. Also I tricked at least one special guest to join (they aren't in the movie). It's going to be EPIC!!!(ally boring). Check in tomorrow morning for the start time (spoiler it's 4pm PST). Also I spent 3 minutes drawing this flyer and that is not wine, it's tears of BLOOD. #ThorRagnarok #LiveScreeningParty
And here are some images of the concept art that he’s shown during the screening:

We have some images of what looks to be New Asgard, and there looks to be more infrastructure compared to that of the town we see in Avengers: Endgame. Though Thor is in space, I can imagine that Asgard will still be playing a role in the film, especially counting that Valkyrie is their leader now.
We also get an updated mech suit for Miek. We don’t really know what his role in the film will be, but he has something closer to a female body. There’s even some concept art of Miek’s new body wearing a female business suit.
While there are some people who love Thor: Ragnarok, I’m personally in the camp that thinks it was just okay. I mean, I’m a fan of Waititi’s work, but the comedy in Ragnarok just felt a lot more crude than what he’s done before. If anything, it didn’t feel like he was taking the movie as seriously as he would his more personal films.
Then again, that’s just my critique. Hopefully Waititi gets to give us something more touching with Thor: Love and Thunder. Catch the film in theaters (hopefully) on Feb. 18, 2022.
