Marvel Studios has released the first official teaser for what will probably turn out to be this summer’s biggest superhero film, Thor: Love and Thunder. The third solo outing of everyone’s favorite Asgardian thunder god will see the return of Chris Hemsworth in the eponymous role, who, as the teaser can reveal, is on a journey for inner peace alongside some of his newer friends, the Guardians of the Galaxy, led by Chris Pratt’s Star Lord. The footage also includes a small peek at Natalie Portman, who returns to play Thor’s ex, Jane Foster. She appears to have bulked up for the role, although it’s hard to tell what’s real these days due to the advancements (and overuse) of CG. Thor: Love and Thunder will be released in theaters on July 8, 2022, and a new poster that Marvel Studios also released today echoes the film’s ’80s vibe (as if Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and Thor’s appearance in the teaser wasn’t enough already).
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’: First Teaser Reveals a Cosmic Adventure (Marvel)
The first teaser for Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder has arrived, offering long-awaited clues to what’s in store for the God of Thunder. The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But 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. Find the new teaser above, in addition to a poster for the upcoming cosmic adventure!
