‘Its an interesting feeling after End Game because it was like where do you go from there, but it’s about making great films and to still be a part of the Marvel/Disney family and to be able to make another film is fantastic,’ Chris said during a press conference. 

 Filming is believed to be taking place at Fox Studios. 

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, it comes after the Federal government dipped into its $140 million funding pool for major Hollywood films.

‘There’s such an incredible work ethic here. Being able to stay home and put the kids to bed in their own home as opposed to dragging them across the globe to various hotels is [also] hugely important. My wife is certainly happy,’ Chris said.

Thor: Ragnarok was filmed in Queensland. 

It comes after director Taika Waititi revealed that Natalie Portman is returning to the franchise to play the first female Thor at the San Diego Comic Co last weekend.
