The Marvel fan community has been abuzz about the forthcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder, with stars pitching in and posting insight photos and the on-set shenanigans on social media. However, there is still a lot of mystery about this new Thor movie, and the excitement went up to a feverish pitch thanks to the exciting trailer of the film. It is all set to release on July 8, 2022. With films like Morbius and Doctor Strange already creating an uproar, we can't wait to see what this movie has in store for you.
The Director Creating Waves
Taika Waititi came to the limelight as the director of Thor: Ragnarok. While that film created quite a store, fans expect another comedy and action-packed film. Taika Waititi has expressed his mettle as director of the Marvel movie, adding his unique touches to the Thor world. Waiti's other works include What We Do in the Shadows, where he creates a world of odd vampires and what would happen if they take over Staten Island and many more are worth mentioning.
Natalie Portman as Jane Foster Thor
Natalie Portman's taking over the role of Jane Foster is everything the Thor fans have been waiting for. She plays Thor's lady-love in the prior films. She takes off where she left off with Potman's last Thor film. In the latest installment, Jane will get super-human qualities and sharpen her combat skills to prepare for a booming fight scene with Mjolnir. The sad news is that this is Portman's last role as Jane, as she would finally round off her role.
The Return of Valkyrie
Tessa Thompson, who was terrific in the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, is all set to continue her role in Love and Thunder; here, we may be all set to set to know a little bit more about her character. A little birdie has told us Valkyrie may play Asgard's king.
Thompson is building her character from the other films in the franchise, Avengers: Endgame. In the movie, all hell broke loose as Thanos created harakiri in the universe. From then till now, we are sure the king of Asgard will be eager to restore Agard to its former glory.
An Epic Crossover
Vin Diesel has revealed that he is most excited to hop on to Thor: Love and Thunder board, making the rumors come true that the world of Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor will inevitably clash. Conjectures are rife regarding how the two planets will meet, but fans can't wait to see what the makers come up with. Whether the cross-over will happen at the post-credit scene or some different set-up altogether is something we have to wait to find out.
Hail Christian Bale as the Antagonist
There has been news that Christian Bale is set to be the main villain in Thor's life as Gorr (the) God Butcher. Here Bale is ridden with grief because of the death of his lover and children. In his sorrow and seething rage, he takes on the avatar of God Butcher to butcher all the Gods for not answering his prayers. Bale will likely put on some high-tech makeup and prosthetics to resemble an alien from an unnamed planet.
The One And Only Chris Hemsworth
The film, of course, has the incredible Hemsworth. Here Hemsworth as Thor embarks on a lifetime journey as he goes on a quest for inner peace. But his retirement from his familiar world is stopped by the ominous killer, Gorr the God Butcher. As we have said, Gorr goes on a rampage to kill God. Thor seeks help from King Valkyrie, Korg, and Foster, to stave off the mighty threat. The team sets on to stop God Butcher's manic methods to wipe off all Gods from the universe.
There is also gossip that Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth, Russel Crowe, and Melissa McCarthy will be part of this much-anticipated film. Well, we have to wait till July to find all the answers to the questions swarming in our heads.
