It’s the fourth film in Marvel’s Thor series, and the sequel to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok
Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth film in Marvel’s Thor series, and the sequel to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. It is also the last movie in this series.
Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Valkyrie and Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman respectively. Kevin Feige produced this film which was directed by Taika Waititi. The script was written by Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost and Eric Pearson based on a story by Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost (screenplay), Taika Waititi (story), Eric Pearson (story).
Natalie Portman reprises her role as Jane Foster, who in this film wields the hammer of Thor and becomes worthy to claim the title herself
You know her as Jane Foster, a nurse from New Mexico who is also a scientist with a PhD in astrophysics. She’s Thor’s love interest and was even briefly married to Loki. In this film, she takes on the mantle of Mighty Thor herself when she wields Mjolnir after accidentally gaining its power following an encounter with Hela.
The movie also features Tessa Thompson, returning from earlier films as Valkyrie, who’s named Queen of Asgard in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Endgame.
If you’re a fan of the Thor movies, it’s exciting to see Valkyrie return in Thunder. She was one of my favorite characters from her initial appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, so it’s great to see her take on an even bigger role here. In this movie, we find out that she’s now Queen of Asgard (after Hela destroyed the previous royal family) and also serves as Thor’s greatest ally when Surtur comes along.
We also get some very cool new characters in this film—for example, there are several female warriors named Valkyries who defend Hela against Loki and Korg’s invading army. These women are fierce fighters with bright red hair (and definitely not related to Odin… or Valhalla). They remind me a bit of X-Men’s X-23 because they’re basically just normal mortals who were abducted by aliens and given powers through genetic manipulation. Their abilities include super speed and super strength, but they’re not immortal or anything like that; they can still be killed by normal means such as being stabbed through the heart or decapitated! It also turns out that some of them have been living among humans for years without anyone noticing… which begs the question: why don’t superheroes ever notice these things?
Christian Bale As Gorr
All gods will perish.” Gorr, the God Butcher, the evil supervillain played in Thor: Love and Thunder, vows to die. American Psycho’s actor makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the role of the Necrosword-wielding God Killer in Taika Waititi’s sequel to Thor. He slays Falligar, the Behemoth and then faces the full might Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Thor Odinson. Love and Thunder is in theaters on Thursday. Opening night moviegoers took to Twitter to express their unspoiler-free reactions and opinions to Bale’s “masterful”, “menacing”, Marvel villain.
Gorr is the last of his people. He spends his days trying to survive in a deserted area with his daughter Love. His god Rapu asks for help but Love dies soon from starvation. Gorr hears a voice in the distance and finds Rapu. He had just killed the latest user of the ancient weapon All Black the Necrosword. Rapu mocks Gorr’s helplessness and refuses any assistance. Gorr feels betrayed and takes the Necrosword. He beheads Gorr and vows to eliminate all gods.
Tegan Nox, an up-and-coming wrestler for WWE, was cast in an undisclosed supporting role.
Who is Tegan Nox?
She’s a wrestler for WWE, but she’s also an actress. You might have seen her in The Marine 3: Homefront, or playing herself on an episode of Smackdown. She was in Thor: Ragnarok as well! What role did she play?
Well, she played the role of a face-painted warrior woman from Earth who fights alongside Valkyrie and Korg against Hela and her army of Surtur demons. How did she land this gig?
She was cast after Taika Waititi saw her performing at one of his wrestling shows in Australia. He loved what he saw and asked if he could give her a call sometime to see if they could make something happen together—which they did! What was it like working with Taika Waititi?
He had some pretty specific ideas about how he wanted things done on set (he made sure they used real spears instead of fake ones), but overall everyone got along really well during filming.”
Thor Love and thunder Movie Review
It is quite an accomplishment for a filmmaker to add their personal touch on a multimillion-dollar movie studio production. This was the case with Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok and Thor: Love and Thunder. Zack Snyder is the director; James Gunn’s films bear the distinctive fingerprints of their director. Waititi, however, is in a completely different league. Love and Thunder has moments when it feels like a $185 million megaphone dedicated to Taika Waititi’s voice. The film will draw a line between those who believe he is right and those who find his style of chipper mateyness or disingenuous sentimentality to be increasingly irritating. I tend to lean towards the latter.
We are joined by Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who is in an existential crisis. He has never completely moved on from Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). The Asgardian, a hammer-wielding Asgardian, with the disconcertingly Oxbridge accent, moonlights with the Guardians of the Galaxy. After Thor defeats an alien hell-owl on flying bikes and destroys the crystal temple, the beloved institution he was supposed to be protecting, there’s a moment when he is extolling his accomplishments in his rousing toff voice. You wonder if there is a moment of satirical politics woven into the screenplay. This romp pits Thor against Christian Bale’s cadaverous Godslayer. It is, however, superficial. A film that uses a greeting card triteness for its themes of love, sacrifice, and that exploits the internet memes (screaming goats) to make easy laughs.
