Get a good look at Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth in the first full trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor enlists the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to fight Gorr the God Butcher, who intends to make the gods extinct.
Within an hour of dropping, the trailer had more than 2 million views on the Marvel Entertainment YouTube page alone.
Marvel announced the title for Love and Thunder back in 2019 at San Diego Comic-Con, where studio boss Kevin Feige revealed that Natalie Portman would be returning to the franchise for the first since Thor: The Dark World (2013).
Beyond the sight of seeing two Thors in action, the trailer also gives us our first look at Christian Bale as Gorr, the film’s main antagonist. He’s “the God Butcher,” and has decided that his own loses of family and personal tragedy justifies him traveling the galaxy, killing off every god he can find.
Saving them becomes the highest priotiry for the two Thors, along with Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, on the quest for a queen to rule New Asgard with.
The trailer also offers us our first real look at the MCU’s version of the Olympians, including Russell Crowe as Zeus, giving our heroes an even bigger supporting cast to play with now that Asgard and the Nine Realms are behind us.
Thor: Love and Thunder stars Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Karen Gillan, Chris Pratt, Taika Waititi, Tessa Thompson, Russel Crowe, Jamie Alexander, and Christian Bale, and hits theaters on July 8th, 2022.
This one will be huge.
