With “ Thor 3: Day of Decision ” director Taika Waititi and leading actor Chris Hemsworth have created one of the most popular and funniest MCU films. Now the dream team is coming together again for » Thor 4: Love And Thunder «, but this time there are many other players — «Thor 4» will be a motley and quite crazy mix!
It starts with the fact that a new Thor enters the stage in «Love And Thunder»: Jane Foster ( Natalie Portman ), in the first two «Thor» films still a scientist and friend of Thor ( Chris Hemsworth ), has meanwhile found herself proven worthy to wield the hammer Mjlölnir, and has gone from mortal to goddess of thunder.
The original Thor looked pretty surprised in the first trailer, after all, Mjölnir was actually destroyed in «Thor 3». The new preview does not reveal exactly how Jane could become Thor.
The Guardians Of The Galaxy and many cameos
What is clear, however, is that there are also proven «Thor» characters such as Valkyrie ( Tessa Thompson ) and Korg (director Taika Waititi ). And after the end of «Avengers: Endgame» the Guardians Of The Galaxy will be present at least at the beginning of «Thor 4», which were also revealed in the first trailer.
And then there are numerous cameos: Matt Damon , Sam Neill and Luke Hemsworth can be seen as Fake Loki, Fake Odin and Fake Thor, as in «Thor 3», this time supplemented by Melissa McCarthy as Fake Hela and Ben Falcone (perhaps Fake Skurge?) and Russell Crowe as Zeus, the father of the gods, who can now be seen here in all his glory for the first time (and makes for the best gag of the trailer).
Christian Bale as God Killer
Also newly revealed in the trailer is the villain Gorr the God Butcher, aka Gorr The God Butcher, who is played by The Dark Knight star Christian Bale and has largely been kept out of marketing so far. At least visually, he is very different from his counterpart in the comics, but it remains to be seen what Waititi and Co. will do with the character.
«Thor 4: Love And Thunder» will be released in German cinemas on July 6, 2022.
