Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson/God of Thunder and Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor/Jane Foster look like they’re about to be one of the most powerful duos of the MCU in new promo art for the upcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder.
The art shows the two superheroes using their lightning powers as Thor wields the Stormbreaker with Jane wielding a repaired version of Mjolnir.
This also further confirms the speculations of Peter Dinklage’s Eitri returning after Avengers: Infinity War.
The official art for the film was posted by Shop Disney UK when the website was updated to display the various Disney projects releasing this year.
The update included the new art used for Thor: Love and Thunder’s merch once it is available as part of the film’s promotional strategy.
Thor: Love and Thunder Official Art:
Taika Waititi returns to direct the fourth installment in the Thor film series, following his unique and colorful take on the superhero with Thor: Ragnarok.
The film will also bring back Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie as Asgard’s new queen and introduce Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher as the film’s main villain.
Previously leaked images had also revealed blurry images of Valkyrie and Gorr’s costumes. Though it would be hard to go over the details until Marvel releases the official first look images and clips.
Much to the annoyance of fans, the film has not gotten a trailer yet despite its release being just three months away. Thor: Love and Thunder now holds the record of having the shortest trailer-release window out of all the MCU films.
As Marvel recently made presale tickets available for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it’s understandable why the studio would avoid trying to have two of its titles clash during their promotions.
However, a few days ago, Hemsworth posted a picture with Waititi and Thompson as they began the promotional tour for the film—so here’s hoping the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder is just around the corner.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to arrive in theaters on July 8.
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.
