Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi has revealed who is the star of the film.

Taika was recently asked who the true protagonist of the fourth movie in the Thor franchise actually is, as Natalie Portman was recently announced to play The Mighty Thor/"the female Thor" in the motion picture.

Alas, it seems Hemsworth will remain centre stage this time, folks.

"It’s Chris [Hemsworth]," Taika said (via MTV News). "It’s a Thor film. He is Thor, it’s a Thor film. She’s in it."

The news follows Taika recently responding to reports that he had actually finished the script for Love and Thunder, admitting that wasn't the case.

"Oh that's cool!!" He wrote on Twitter. "I never cease to surprise me! (the title page is complete)."

It also follows speculation that Thor: Love and Thunder will introduce Beta Ray Bill to the MCU.

In case you don't know, Beta Ray Bill is an alien warrior deemed to be just as awesome as Thor.
