WHAT WE KNOW TILL NOW
Thor:love and thunder will pick up where Avengers:Endgame left off with the titular character.Thor passed rulership of the Asgardians on to Valkyrie and set off to have some fun adventures with his new buddy Rabbit,a.k.a Rocket Raccoon,and the rest of the Guardians of the galaxy.Chris Hemsworth will be back for the next Thor movie.
For the past decade,Chris Hemsworth has portrayed Thor,the Norse god of thunder ,in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.However,Thor:Love and Thunder will feature the return of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, who will become the Mighty Thor as she did in the comics.
Taika Waititi previously revealed,”When we were shooting Ragnarok,I was reading the one storyline by Jason Aaron, called THE MIGHTY THOR. And for those of you who don’t know that storyline , it’s incredible and full of emotions and love and thunder. And it introduces ,for the first time ,a female Thor”.
GORR THE GOD BUTCHER
Oscar winner Christian Bale,would play the villain as Gorr the God Butcher. First appeared in Thor:God of Thunder which was published in 2013. The virtually immortal character grew up on a nameless barren planet and vowed to kill the gods who did not save his dying family.
Gorr vowed to seek vengeance against all Gods for never answering his prayers, and set out to kill them all. This quest eventually took him to earth , where he encountered Thor. Gorr nearly killed the God of Thunder, and during the second encounter, Gorr attempted to torture Thor for information about the location of Asgard.
Thor was rescued by his Viking worshipers and cut Gorr’s arm, but he survived. He then spent thousands of years killing more Gods and forming an army and reencountered Thor.
Gorr killed the Time Gods and used their bloods to take over time stream, through which he went to the beginning of the universe and killed prime Gods, and later travelled future where come across with Thor again.
Time-travel and multiple timeline are now things in the MCU.It wouldn’t be surprising for viewers in future movies dealing with this.
THE RETURN OF VALKYRIE
According to the recent reports, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie who entered Thor’s life in Thor: Ragnarok when he crossed paths with her on Sakaar, where she was drinking her sorrows away and working as a bounty hunter, will be reprising her role in the fourth installment of the movie.
She took part in the final battle of the world’s famous and biggest blockbuster Avengers Endgame.
By the end of Avengers Endgame, before leaving Earth, Thor appointed Valkyrie as the ruler of New Asgard, and she’ll still be carrying out her kingly duties when we reunite with her in Thor: Love and Thunder.
One would imagine Valkyrie will jump into action at some point in the movie. So we might see a different version of her in the movie rather than expecting the same one we saw in Thor Ragnarok.
We may not have Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif in the third installment, but we might see her reprising her role of Lady Sif in Thor: Love and Thunder.
We didn’t have her in Thor Ragnarok as the filming conflicted with the actress work on the NBC series Blind spot, we as we know how good MCU is, they might have the reason for the characters absence from the third movie.
THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
From the recent set photos, it was revealed that Guardians of the galaxy will appear in the movie and we did know that by seeing the way Avengers Endgame ended.
But we shouldn’t expect them to be in Thor: Love and Thunder all that much as they wrapped up the filming so soon on the sequel.
When asked James Gunn about the inclusion of him in writing the script, he said “ Yes, Have been doing, They’re in great hands with Taika Waititi”. So we might expect to have some lines of Guardians of the Galaxy written by James Gunn.
Chris Hemsworth – Thor
Christian Bale – Gorr the God Butcher
Natalie Portman – Jane Foster
Tessa Thompson – Valkyrie
Taika Waititi – Korg (voice)
Karen Gillen – Nebula
Chris Pratt – Star lord
Pom Klementieff – Mantis
Jaimie Alexander – Sif
Dave Bautista – Drax
Sean Gunn – Kraglin
This is going to be super exciting for all Thor and Marvel fans where we will see Thor along with the Guardians of the Galaxy face off against Gorr The God Butcher!!!
