Following the short but sweet Thor: Love And Thunder teaser that landed a few weeks ago, Marvel Studios has released the first full-length trailer for the Taika Waititi film, which offers the first look at Christian Bale’s villainous Gorr The God Butcher.
The new trailer for Thor: Love And Thunder confirms that we can expect the same silly and badass fun that Waititi delivered with Thor: Ragnarok, especially when it comes to the first appearance of Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor. When it comes to Bale’s Gorr The God Butcher, however, it looks like Waititi is taking a darker approach, balancing his typical sense of humour with something more serious.
Watch the new trailer below:
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who — to Thor’s surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.
Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
