Trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder are out. And it is just like what we expect, action, and heroes we’d all want. Fans of the god of thunder have desperately awaited some extended glimpse.
This continues Thor’s quest after Avengers: Endgame, it pushed him to his limits. With the MCU’s next blockbuster not far off on July 8, the trailer gave us absolute goosebumps. It includes some new material to work with, including some exciting re-entries into the franchise.
Images Reveal Jane Foster’s Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus
Thor: Love and Thunder start with Thor’s journey to find inner peace. It seems to be doing wonders for him. We see him meditating and training to get past and traumatic events of the Snap. The result is shown as Thor with positive vibes to put out into the universe.
In just about every image, he has a big goofy grin on his face. This is something that no one predicted for the character a few films back! Even during his intergalactic journey with a glowing axe in hand, this Thor has not an ounce of anger left in his heart. A new version of him.
A lot of familiar faces are appearing throughout the trailer. Not only Chris Hemsworth as the titular god of thunder though. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is still around. The rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy is a direct sequel to what we saw at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Quill seems a little drained with the new Thor. Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) is also back! And now slipping into a suit and truly settling into the role of king of New Asgard.
The two big reveals fall with Russell Crowe’s MCU introduction as Zeus. And Natalie Portman returned as Thor’s ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, taking up the mantle of Thor. Crowe looks just as we’d assumed. The head honcho of Olympus would cover in golden armour with a lightning bolt in hand. The shots of Olympus he looks over are breathtaking!
But I must say, the biggest reveal is Portman clad in Thor fatigues. Wielding a reconstructed Mjölnir with no trouble at all. It is bringing in a recent element of the comics. She’ll be joining Thor on the quest to take down Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. Thor: Love and Thunder put Taika Waititi back at the track for the god of thunder. His comedic style and affinity for softer stories are sure to work wonders.
