Thor: Love & Thunder – Brilliant Easter Eggs Taika Waititi Hid In The Trailer

Thor: Love and Thunder’s first teaser trailer is finally here, providing an action-packed glimpse of Chris Hemsworth’s new role as the God of Thunder. This film was first revealed at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, with assurances that it will be unlike any other Marvel movie. Now, despite the fact that the teaser trailer is just a minute and a half long, there are numerous clues and Easter eggs to be found by keen viewers. Here are the 5 biggest easter eggs in the Thor: Love & Thunder trailer:

1. The costume from Marvel comics:

A young Odinson can be seen sprinting through the wilderness, evolving from a youngster to a man, as the trailer begins with him contemplating his whole life. Thor appears in this sequence dashing in his iconic Marvel comic book outfit for a flash second.  Before changing into his Marvel movie attire, Thor is seen donning a winged helmet, a metal-plated doublet, blue leggings, and knee-high boots.

2. The inclusion of Zeus and Olympus:

Russel Crow’s portrayal of the Greek god Zeus had already been revealed as a presence in the film. Thor: Love and Thunder will add the Greek gods into the mix, rounding out the mythological trifecta alongside Moon Knight’s Egyptian mythology and the Norse mythos from previous Thor films.  However, it appears that Zeus’s will not be a minor appearance, as Thor and his companions travel to Olympus, the seat of the Greek gods. Although we don’t see Zeus, we can see his hand reaching into the void to collect one of his iconic lightning bolts.

3. Thor and Thanos’s parallels:

Thor is shown putting Stormbreaker into the earth moments before arriving on a mysterious planet, presumably dumping his warrior attitude at the door. The God of Thunder has retired here, according to the official summary of the film. Moving forward, he intends to use his previously battle-ready hands to bring peace to the world. Thor’s new casual lifestyle is reminiscent of Thanos’ final scene in Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos hooks his suit up like a scarecrow before bathing in The Garden’s rays, much like Thor buries Stormbreaker and watches the sunset.

4. The Strongest Avenger, Thor:

Looks like Thor decided to go back into superhero peak condition, now that Thanos has been defeated and he himself is moving with the Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s even a fitness montage with big chains in the trailer. A cap on top of his head here seems to proclaim “Strongest Avenger,” echoing Thor and Hulk’s long-running conflict. However, on closer scrutiny, we can see that the hat has been messed with. It appears to have additional lettering, with Thor inserting “Strongest” to whatever the initial word was. In addition, “Avengers” is plural rather than singular.

5. The Mighty Thor with a repaired Mjölnir:

From what we’ve learned so far, Mjölnir was shattered into fragments by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. Now, when we see Mjölnir flying to his new owner, Jane Foster, it appears to have been patched together from the identical shattered pieces as it was 4 years ago. If one thing is clear, comic book fans will undoubtedly be massive supporters of the impending Thor movie, which is shaping up to be a thrilling experience.
