THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER, The Hype Is Real
Waititi wrote a love letter to the 80s wacky genre and many looks and storylines from “Thor: The God of Thunder” comic which was out in the 80s.
Even the font for the movie title pays homage to the fonts used in 80s comics.
You have seen movies like “Jojo Rabbit” and “The Hunt For The Wilder People,” and you may know that Waititi’s movies are often told from a child’s perspective.
Thor was my almost least favorite avenger until Waititi became the right person to completely embrace the character.
I can’t wait to see Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher go total “American Psycho” on the gods of MCU.
Marvel just dropped its latest trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder and, without a doubt, it looks like another winner down the line. With Taika Waititi directing, Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman leading the cast, and Christian Bale playing the villain, there’s no reason for this film to fail when it comes out in July.
Things you may have missed
Details Regarding Mjolnir
Thor’s first weapon is back, this time in the hands of Jane Foster. As evident by the cracked hammerhead shown in the first trailer, this is the same Mjolnir as the one that was shattered by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.
Mjolnir has not been permanently put back together, though.
During an action sequence on Olympus, Jane tosses the hammer at an array of Olympians. Mjolnir re-shatters, each chunk taking out an individual attacker, before coming together once it returns to Jane’s hands.
Korg Narrating suggested Thor’s retired and is on a spiritual journey.
The second Thor: Love and Thunder trailer opens with Taika Waititi’s Korg narrating a campfire story about the titular character. As evident by the familiar tree in the background, this takes place on the same planet on which the God of Thunder has retired.
While this scene takes place at the start of the trailer, the context of it could place it in the film’s final moments. Korg could be catching his audience up on the “500 times” Thor has saved the world in the past, or he could be recounting the life of his inactive Asgardian buddy.
That, or this could be a tribute story to the original Avenger after he has passed. Considering this is Hemsworth’s fourth solo Thor movie and his ninth MCU appearance overall, Love and Thunder could very well be his swan song. If the mighty one goes the way of his father and evaporates into the stars, this “Story of the Space Viking” could serve as a tribute.
Thor’s classic costume
For the longest time, there was this belief that what Marvel characters wore from the comics could never translate well on the screen. But if recent Phase 4 projects have shown, it can still be done and not take anything away from the story itself. This trend can be seen when the Scarlet Witch donned a classic version of her costume on WandaVision and the Old Loki wore something similar to his early appearances in the comics.
The Asgardians of the Galaxy
The ending of Avengers: Endgame saw Thor going away with the Guardians of the Galaxy to explore the galaxy. In his fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that plot thread is continued here and it seems the God of Thunder is leaving the group to journey on his own further.
