Comic book fans can agree that the Thor franchise went through a bit of an identity crisis. Outside of the Avengers films, Academy-Award winning director Taika Waititi was able to give the God of Thunder a fresh voice with his outstanding take on Thor: Ragnarok. Since then, Waititi has become an instant fan favorite and soon enough he’ll be making his grand return to the MCU with this summer’s fourth Thor entry, Thor: Love and Thunder!
Picking up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the movie will see Natalie Portman back as Jane Foster. Confirmed at 2019’s SDCC, Jane will be donning the mantle of the Mighty Thor. Thor: Love and Thunder also see the MCU debut of The Dark Knight Trilogy alum Christian Bale in the role of Gorr the God Butcher. Plot details are still murky, but after months and waiting of anticipation, the movie’s first teaser trailer has FINALLY arrived online! You can watch the video right down below!

Thor: Love and Thunder Synopsis
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. Directed by Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum.
Thor: Love and Thunder reunites stars Chris Hemsworth, Taika Waititi, and Tessa Thompson. Guardians of the Galaxy cast members Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillian, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel, and Sean Gunn are also set to make a small appearance along with Russell Crowe.
