The trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder dropped on Monday. Fans were glad to finally get a look at the eagerly awaited fourth Thor film! There are plenty of little details in the trailer that made the fans even more excited.
We may have expected more from director Taika Waititi’s follow-up to Thor: Ragnarok. Thor’s classic costume from the comics knocks it back to artist Jack Kirby’s design. It was for the character from the 1960s. The appearance of this classic costume is brief in the trailer. Fans freaked out getting to see it! Many of them took to social media to talk about it.
Thor: Love and Thunder Trailer Breakdown
At the start of the trailer, there is a sequence in which we can see very young Thor. He is running through what looks a bit like a park with grass and trees. And you know what? Guess the actor! I completely freaked out when I came to know that the young version of Thor is Chris Hemsworth’s son! As he runs, the character passes through different ages and costumes. One of those costumes is a classic Thor look from comics.
It completes with a winged helmet, red cape, chest epaulets, and a blue-black color scheme. And even yellow strapped boots and a gold belt with it! The moment is brief, but it looks like it was picked up directly from the pages of the comics.
Thor: Love and Thunder, Thor is on a journey, unlike anything he’s ever faced. It’s 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. Thor persuades the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). She inexplicably wields his magical hammer! Together, they undertake a brutal cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of God Butcher’s revenge. And to stop him before it’s too late.
The trailer also shows a look of Valkyrie as King of Asgar. And there’s a glimpse at Russell Crowe’s Zeus. Of course, we can also see Natalie Portman back as a Mjolnir-wielding Jane Foster. No surprise on who is front and back. Yes! Chris Hemsworth is back as the God of Thunder, Thor. Joining him is the newly-installed emperor of New Asgard, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson).
