hor is back in the new full-length trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder… and he has competition.
In the trailer, we see the return of the friendly rock guy Korg (played by Taika Waititi), introducing a class of students to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor legend, and how he turns his life around after the events of his life. events of Infinity War.
“After all of that, he’s reclaimed his only title of Thor,” Korg says — until Jane (played by Natalie Portman) steps in, carrying Mjolnir.
It certainly looks like Jane can stand up to Thor: the trailer shows her using the thunder god’s thunderous powers and taking out the bad guys with his hammer.
“What was it like, like there, four years?” She asked him, referring to Portman’s previous appearance in the Marvel series, in the second Thor movie The Dark World.
“Eight years, seven months and six days, give or take,” he replied softly.
After that, there’s no unfinished business – and in a recent interview with Empire, Waititi explained that their relationship is set up to be pretty tough.
“It’s been about eight years,” he said. “She had a completely different life, and then the love of your life returned to the scene, and is now dressed just like you. That’s a real thought**k for Thor. “
Along with Portman, the film looks set to see the return of Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson. Although she was last seen ruling New Asgard, she looks set to reappear in the multiverse, alongside Chris Pratt’s Starlord.
We also received a teaser of the film’s villain, Gorr: a dark creature with white skin.
“The only person the gods care about is themselves,” he said. “So this is my oath. All the gods will die”.
The trailer then shows him hurling a sword at what looks like an asteroid or planet, and completely destroying it.
As if that weren’t enough, it looks like we’re in for a photo treatment, as Waititi takes us to a location that looks a lot like the space version of Olympus. And Zeus is there, because of course he is.
Luckily, there’s not much to wait until Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters. It’s coming out on July 8, so grab your popcorn: it’s going to be a ride.
