The first full trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder has arrived and somehow found a new angle on the journey of Chris Hemsworth’s titular hero. This time around, we also get a good look at Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, a galactic assassin “seeking the extermination of the gods.”
There are also more shots of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), playing some of the interactions she’ll have with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who, as we saw in the teaser trailer, wields Mjolnir, and even a quick flash of what Guardians of the Universe friends.
So, who holds the title Mighty Thor and what has Jane been up to for the past eight years, seven months and six days? We don’t know yet, but we do know that in addition to the return of the smashing color scheme, director Taika Waititi takes over from Thor: Ragnarokthere seems to be a Snyder Cut-esque black and white segment in the store as Gorr takes on the MCU heroes.
Unsurprisingly, however, none of these elements are as consistent as a finger flick by Zeus (Russell Crowe) himself. Expect to see all of the above, and of course Taika Waititi as Korg, when Thor: Love and Thunder opens in theaters on July 8, 2022.
