Taika Waititi hasn’t been shy about his love of the Shonen franchise created by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece, with quite a few pictures being taken up to now whereby the director wears his love of the anime collection on his sleeve. Now, in a behind-the-scenes video for Marvel’s upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder, the fourth movie of the collection that follows the God of Thunder, it is clear that the beloved director nonetheless holds One Piece near his coronary heart as footage reveals that Waititi is carrying some Luffy apparel through the filming of the Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster.

Marvel Studios used its Official Twitter Account to share a brand new “behind the scenes” video which sees Taika Waititi carrying a sweater that has been blurred, although clearly has an image of One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy on the entrance of it because the director clearly has some main love of Eiichiro Oda’s creation:

If you are not aware of the story of the fourth film following the God of Thunder, together with a brand new God of Thunder as Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster is slated to carry onto the hammer Mjolnir this go round, Marvel Studios launched the next official description of Thor: Love And Thunder:

“The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

There has by no means been an official crossover between the world of One Piece and Marvel, although the just lately launched manga, Deadpool: Samurai, noticed the Merc With A Mouth crossing over with My Hero Academia’s All Might so that is positively a case of by no means say by no means.
