Marvel Cinematic Universe has recently dropped a full-length trailer of the upcoming movie Thor: Love and Thunder which teases further glimpses at Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor character as well as the first look at Christian Bale’s villainous Gorr the God Butcher. Franchise lead Chris Hemsworth’s return as Marvel’s Thor is of course also featured in the trailer.
Thor: Love And Thunder trailer was debuted during Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on Monday. In the trailer, the movie director Taika Waititi, who also costars as bumbling alien and comic relief Korg, tells “the story of space Viking Thor Odinson,” who saves Earth, ‘for the 500th time’ and sets out on a new journey and gets in shape after putting some weight in Avengers: Endgame. Hemsworth is seen in the clip participating in gruelling cosmic workout routines.
Hemsworth’s workout includes dragging an entire spaceship with a heavy chain, before reaching for his beloved hammer named Mjölnir amid a fight. Later in the trailer, the hammer slips from Thor’s reach and flies into the grip of Portman’s Dr Jane Foster, now outfitted as the Mighty Thor in an impressive silvery winged helmet. “Oh, spoke too soon,” Waititi as Korg says, as Thor stares in disbelief at his ex-girlfriend and exclaims, “Jane?!”
The recently released Thor trailer also provided fans with an extended look at Bale’s bad-guy Gorr, a gaunt and grey being with yellow eyes who vows “all gods will die.” Ahead of the new trailer’s debut, Chris Hemsworth teased the sequel and shared his excitement about sharing the movie with fans. Along with Hemsworth and Portman, Thor: Love and Thunder also stars Tessa Thompson and Russell Crowe, plus Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista.
The upcoming movie is the fourth instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Thor franchise, following 2017’s well-received Thor: Ragnarok, also directed by Waititi. While Portman did not appear in that movie, she played Thor’s love interest Jane in the first two movies, 2011’s Thor and Thor: The Dark World in 2013. Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to hit theatres on July 8. Till then watch Thor: Love and Thunder here:
