As Thor: Love and Thunder plays in theaters, Chris Pratt took to Twitter to praise its star, director, and the country in which they filmed.

Chris Pratt praises Chris Hemsworth while sharing a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Thor: Love and Thunder. Writer/director Taika Waititi’s highly anticipated sequel to Thor: Ragnarok sees Hemsworth reprise the titular role as the God of Thunder for the first time since Avengers: Endgame. His fourth solo outing as the character also introduces the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest villain, Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. Thankfully, Hemsworth’s character is aided by Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, who wields Mjölnir and becomes the Mighty Thor. The film also stars Jamie Alexander’s Lady Sif, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Waititi’s Korg, Russell Crowe’s Zeus, and the “Asgardians of the Galaxy.”

In Endgame’s final moments, Thor decides to be who he is and hitches a ride aboard the Benatar with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Love and Thunder picks up with Thor an indefinite amount of time after the events of Endgame, with Thor, Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Pom Klementieff’s Mantis, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket, Karen Gillan’s Nebula, and Vin Diesel’s Groot traveling the galaxy. While the Guardians aren’t in the film long, their presence certainly capitalizes on the winning chemistry established in both Infinity War and Endgame. Specifically, between Hemsworth and Pratt.

Following Love and Thunder’s release in theaters this past Friday, Pratt took to Twitter to share a BTS photo from the set. The star called Hemsworth the perfect Thor while thanking Waititi for including the Guardians and Australia for being so hospitable towards the cast and crew. Check out Pratt’s post below:

This is not the first time Pratt has shown Hemsworth love and the God of Thunder himself has also taken to social media to praise his fellow Chris. The pair’s appreciation for one another reflects what seems to be a collaborative, inspiring, and fun working environment in the MCU, especially on the set of Waititi’s films where the director has established a reputation for improvisation. His involvement in Ragnarok played a prominent role in revitalizing Thor, the franchise, and Hemsworth’s interest in playing the character. That said, Love and Thunder does set up a fifth film, which could mean Hemsworth beats Hugh Jackman’s superhero record.

It’s unclear when or where Hemsworth’s Thor will be seen again. However, Star-Lord and his rag-tag team of misfits are set to return in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and then Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3, respectively—which will take place after Love and Thunder. Given that Vol. 3 is Gunn’s final installment in the Guardians franchise, Pratt and Hemsworth may never appear together in the MCU again (unless they reunite in Thor 5). However, Pratt did say Thor’s goats will appear alongside the Guardians in their next outing. So, maybe the God of Thunder stops by to say hello. For now, audiences can go check out Pratt and Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder.
