‘Thor: Love And Thunder’: Everything You Need To Know

We’re just a few days away from the release of Thor: Love And Thunder, and everyone here at The Blog That Must Not Be Named is counting down the hours. The latest instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the fourth solo outing for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor – making the God of Thunder the only Marvel hero to appear in more than three solo films.

With Thor: Love And Thunder landing in cinemas this Thursday, we thought it would be helpful to share everything we know about the MCU film. Take a look below to find out everything you need to know about Thor: Love And Thunder:

Who Is Directing?

Thor: Love And Thunder is directed by Taika Waititi, who also helmed the last instalment of the franchise, Thor: Ragnarok. The filmmaker is known for his unique sense of humour and comedic filmmaking, and has grown to become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand filmmakers.

To get an idea of what to expect from Waititi, we recommend watching his previous films Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt For The Wilderpeople, JoJo Rabbit, and What We Do In The Shadows.

What’s The Story?

Thor: Love And Thunder takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) leaving his kingly responsibilities behind and flying-off with the Guardians Of The Galaxy. We know from the trailers that the film will deal with Thor’s desire to retire and do some much-needed soul searching, which naturally lasts all of two minutes. Thor is quickly dragged back into work, this time to take down the villainous Gorr (Christian Bale).

Marvel has released an official synopsis for Thor: Love And Thunder, which you can read 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.”

Who Is In The Cast?

Thor: Love And Thunder wouldn’t be a Thor movie without Chris Hemsworth, who is returning for another adventure as the God of Thunder. The film also stars director Taika Waititi as his fan-favourite character Korg, Tessa Thompson, as Asgardian warrior Valkyrie, and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor. Christian Bale will make his MCU debut in the film, portraying the villainous Gorr the God Butcher.

Russell Crowe is also set to appear in the film as the the Greek god Zeus, as well as Guardians Of The Galaxy actors Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Pom Klementieff.
