Thor: Love and Thunder is almost here. And the fourth Thor installment which is possibly marked by another one of Taika Waititi’s trademark hilarity is set to take off into the sunset drawn by two of the loudest bleating goats. For those who don’t understand the reference, have a look at the latest trailer.
Marvel has dropped yet another trailer just on the cusp of theatrical release and it has solidified the notion of what the film will bring to its audience. Utter chaos and destruction. Side effects may include raucous laughter, riotous fun, amazing visuals, ‘aww’-inducing LGBT moments, swords, hammers, axes, and some outstanding Jean-Claude Van Damme-certified splits.
Thor: Love and Thunder’s Trailer Breakdown
Thor is back in his surprisingly good shape and putting together a team to fight Gorr. News has traveled of the villain’s single-handed ravage across the universe and to take him down, Thor has banded with his self-proclaimed best friend, Korg (Taika Waititi), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Lady Thor aka his ex-girlfriend (Natalie Portman), Guardians of the Galaxy, and most importantly, a pair of goats/rams who fly his chariot to wherever he needs to go.
Visuals abound in this newest trailer and it’s packed with a perfect balance of action and comedy. Valkyrie is in full swing equipped with her winged stallion and sword, the trailer also features a one-on-one battle between her and Gorr. Thor’s nemesis is shown destroying an entire planet with his All-Black the Necrosword and traversing across worlds. The team in their usual chaotic mannerism foray into the battle supported by Thor’s unchecked optimism.

The trailer also features a few surprising revelations. Thor now features a shiny new blue and gold armor. He also has a golden-winged helmet to match. And perhaps in the most surprising reveal of all, the goat-drawn chariot blasts through screaming and flying into the distance as two Eternals watch on in what can be rightfully claimed as mock confusion.

Thor 4’s Connection to the Eternals
Given that Gorr the God Butcher quite literally is destroying worlds and Gods on his rampage to extinct the universe of them, it is of no surprise that the film would feature Eternals too. The beings were introduced to us in the 2021 film starring a stellar cast including Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Kit Harrington, Richard Madden, Barry Keoghan, Kumail Nanjiani, and Harry Styles.
The beings are certified with god-like powers within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and as such can be categorized as Gods. Given Gorr’s intense hatred for such beings, the Eternals may as well be on his target, and Thor: Love and Thunder may lack in grim seriousness that comes with massacre, destruction, and killing but it is certainly not devoid of gods.
Thor: Love and Thunder launch theatrically on July 8, 2022.
