Thor 4: Love and Thunder, is the new film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe focused on the God of Thunder, which will feature Lady Thor as a companion, a character who will play Natalie Portman. Taika Waititi (“Jo Jo Rabitt”) returns to direct Chris Hemsworth after “Thor: Ragnarok”, in the new film that will hit theaters on July 7. But after the theatrical release this week, the film will hit streaming in Disney Plus How does it look?
The official synopsis of “Thor 4: Love and Thunder” describes that the God of Thunder (Hemsworth) embarks on a journey that bears no resemblance to what he has faced so far: a search for inner peace. But Thor’s retreat was interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of Goddesses (Christian Bale), who sought the extinction of the goddesses.
To deal with the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a cosmic adventure in which they will have to discover the mystery of the revenge of the Butcher of Gods and stop it before it is too late.
“Avengers: Endgame” was presented in 2019 and its story took place in 2023, ie 5 years after the Thanos snap that swept half the population of the galaxy. According to the director’s dates, “Thor: Love and Thunder” would happen in 2027. This means that during these four years Thor has traveled through space with Los Guardianes.
From this date, it follows that it is the most advanced film in the timeline of the latest productions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as “Spider-Man: No Way Home” happens in 2024. Meanwhile, “Doctor Strange 2 in the Multiverse of Madness” it happens a few months after Spidey’s multiversal events.
This film, moreover, possibly signifies the last adventure of the God of Thunder, as Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) will become the female version of Thor in Phase 4 of the MCU. In addition, there will be the appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in Tessa Thompson’s Valkyria, Christian Bale as the villain Gorr the Butcher and Matt Damon and Melissa McCarthy as special legs.
The advances spread in recent weeks, put in special phase in two of these characters who will be key in the story: Jane Foster and Gorr El Dios Carnicero. In the case of the film’s villain, Gorr, there were no visual details beyond any leaks. The opposite happened in the case of the role played by Natalie Portman, who was first seen as Mighty Thor.
Those previews of “Thor 4: Love and Thunder” show the actress in different phases as Mighty Thor, who will be the new carrier of the iconic hammer of Norse mythology. In addition, it has been possible to see some images in which the two protagonists of the story are seen, who have a loving past and their story will be developed in this film.
Thus, the concept that runs through “Thor: Love and Thunder” is love, which will function as one of the narrative branches that the God of Thunder, by Chris Hemsworth, will be referred to during this film. In fact, as they review the trailers, they stand out and notice that it bears the record of years, months and days since the protagonist ended Jane Foster.
For his part, Pormant will wear a new suit to bring Mighty Thor to life. The Oscar winner for “The Black Swan” will return to her role as Jane Foster, though not in the same way as in the past, as she is now worthy of wearing Mjolnir and has become a God of thunder.
Taika Waititi is again the director, after his outstanding work in “Thor: Ragnarok”, combining adventure, much needed in such a production, and with the touch of comedy that proved to dominate in other productions of the director . In this way, the winner of the Oscar for best screenplay adapted for “Jojo Rabbit” will return to the orders of the Disney Factory after the aforementioned “Ragnarok”, the short films of “Team Thor” and ” Team Darryl ”and the eighth chapter of“ The Mandalorian ”, entitled“ Redemption ”.
“Thor 4: Love and Thunder” is an action, adventure and comedy film; with a duration of 115 minutes and a cast that includes, along with Hemsworth and Portman, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Matt Damon, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Melissa McCarthy, Russell Crowe, Sam Neill, Sean Gunn, Luke Hemsworth, Akosia Sabet, Simon Russell Beale, Clariza Vicente, Chayla Korewha, Sean Rohani, Mark Casimir Dyniewicz, Jason Jago and Aiden Mckenzie.
The premiere of this film, makes Thor the first figure in the Marvel Universe to star in four solo films, beyond his role in Avengers. Then, it will be the turn of “Captain America 4”, the fourth installment of the superhero where Sam Wilson, (played by Anthony Mackie) will continue with the shield and legacy of Steve Rogers of Chris Evans.
