In the latest trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, Thor the God of Thunder battles Gorr the God Butcher, who is the main villain in the film, in an epic battle face-off. Thor: Love and Thunder will release in theaters on July 7, 2022.
Love and Thunder is Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth’s latest MCU collaboration, the previous one being Thor: Ragnarok (2017). The upcoming film is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame and follows the journey of the God of Thunder after one of his lowest points in life.
Along with Hemsworth, Love and Thunder will also mark the return of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who is now the Mighty Thor, and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who is now the king of Asgard.
Waititi describes Thor’s condition in Love and Thunder as a “midlife crisis“ and asserts that he will be searching for some peace in the latest installment. However, the film is all set to introduce a brand-new villain, Gorr, played by Christian Bale.
So, Thor will not be allowed to retire from fighting altogether. The latest trailer for the film proves exactly that.
In the latest trailer released by Marvel Studios, there are glimpses of Thor and Gorr’s epic battle, along with the inclusion of new scenes from the movie. The 30-second trailer features the God of Thunder using his various powers in unique ways. Check out the trailer below.
Based on the footage released by Marvel Studios, Thor and Gorr will surely face each other at least twice. The first time, the fight will take place presumably in the shadow realm. This will set up Thor’s next mission where he will approach Zeus to warn the gods of the impending attack by Gorr.
The second battle will most likely be the deciding one, though it is difficult to say whether the clips shown in the latest trailer are from which battle. Knowing the MCU, it is also possible that the footage released is not the actual film at all and is purely for marketing purposes.
Not much is known about Gorr, the God Butcher, but he does seem to have the potential to become one of the most dangerous villains faced by Thor. Gorr’s grudge against the gods comes from a personal tragedy, so the stakes seem to be quite high this time.
As the trailer hints, the battle between Thor and Gorr will surely be an epic one, so fans have a lot to look forward to in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder will release in theaters on July 7, 2022.
About Thor: Love and Thunder
Thor: Love and Thunder is a MCU movie and the fourth installation in the Thor series. It is directed by Ragnarok’s director, Taika Waititi, and will show Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman reprising their roles as Thor Odinson and Dr. Jane Foster.
The movie will be based on The Mighty Thor comics in which Thor Odinson loses the ability to lift Mjolnir, and Jane Foster takes on the role of Mighty Thor. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Thor teams up with The Guardians of the Galaxy for a short time, leaving Valkyrie as the ruler of New Asgard. But Thor returns to team up with Korg, Valkyrie and Jane’s Mighty Thor to take down Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) – before he takes out all the gods in existence.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson return for Watiti’s second go, while Russell Crowe and Natalie Portaman join Taika’s project for the first time. The movie is out on July 8, 2022.
