A new trailer and poster are available for Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Love and Thunder,” offering long-awaited clues to what’s in store for the God of Thunder.
It has been a long wait since Avengers: Endgame hit theaters in 2019. Thor is back in the first trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, which premiered on Monday. At a brisk 89 seconds, not much of the upcoming film’s plot is revealed during the teaser, but it’s filled with familiar faces, including one Asgardian god who’s prepared for some major life changes.
The new film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. His retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.
Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late. Directed by Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, “Thor: Love and Thunder” opens in theaters July 8, 2022.
