Thor: Love and Thunder is the next entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe starring Chris Hemsworth where the God of Thunder is threatened by Gorr The God Butcher, a villain who has sworn to eliminate all deities with his bare hands. Also, the Asgardian will be surprised by the return of Jane Foster who is worthy of lifting Mjolnir and becomes Mighty Thor.
The film has romantic elements as it finds inspiration in comedies of that genre as its director, Taika Waititi, explained in the past. It will also have all the action that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has accustomed us to, added to the humor that the filmmaker imprinted on the character, thus taking advantage of the histrionic qualities of the protagonist.
How long is Thor: Love and Thunder? It is one of the shortest Marvel movies at 115 minutes long including the credits of the film. Attention! Do not leave once the film is over because, as is customary with the brand led by Kevin Feige, there will be two post-credits scenes that will surely help to further unite the multiverse of Marvel characters.
It is also important to note that Thor: Love and Thunder will be the film in the franchise that will break two records: in this case, the God of Thunder is the first of the brand's heroes to have four films headed by himself, in addition to the fact that in the last installment of his saga there is, for the first time in the history of the MCU, a partial nudity. Awesome!
Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Christian Bale as Gorr The God Buthcer, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Karen Gillan as Nebula. , Taika Waititi as Korg, Dave Bautista as Drax and Pom Klementieff as Mantis, among others. The film will hit theaters on July 8.
Thor: Love and Thunder, considered by critics as the best film of Phase 4, was going to have a much larger scale than it has ended up presenting. The director of the also applauded Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, had a good number of ideas, as well as scenarios set on many planets. However, he had to cut them out of the final cut. Natalie Portman, who returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after years of absence, explains how ambitious and spectacular this new installment of the God of Thunder is.
"The joy and the sadness of a Taika Waititi project is that he creates so much brilliance and so much material that the film could end up being like an infinite number of things," Portman explained in the Collider interview. "And it inevitably means that the comedy and drama are always at a brilliant level, featuring hilarious and heartwarming scenes, but it doesn't stop there. I mean, there's a lot. I mean, there are whole planets that aren't there anymore." actress, who has undergone an incredible physical change to embody the Goddess of Thunder.
"I pray that all content ends up as a bonus DVD somewhere or comes out in some edition," Portman confessed about the content removed from Thor: Love and Thunder. "Because I mean, yeah, it's pretty remarkable stuff," she adds. "I don't know, it's really amazing to see. And it's especially revealing when you see the finished version, and you understand how many artists have worked on it so that the audience can experience that feeling.
However, most of what you see It's thanks to them and the special effects experts. Of course, the goats were animatronics, they weren't real. They were sculptures that moved on set with us, with tongues that came in and out of their mouths, "he concluded with a laugh.
The Marvel movie directed by Taika Waititi is the sequel to Thor: Ragnarok, which was released in the distant 2017 and will mark the return of Thor to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame in 2019. Starring Hemsworth in the title role, also features Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Waititi as the hilarious Korg, and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, in her first MCU appearance since Thor: The Dark World.
The film will take us to a somewhat convulsive scenario, telling us what happened after the fall of Asgard and the events of Endgame, when the kingdom must find a hole on Earth to exist. Thor tries to find inner peace, but it is hampered by the threat of Gorr (Christian Bale), who wants to annihilate the gods.
"It's fun to hear the reactions on my arms," Natalie Portman mused on the red carpet at the premiere of the fourth Thor movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, held last week in Los Angeles. In the film, again starring Chris Hemsworth and with Christian Bale making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain Gorr, the Oscar-winning actress returns to play the ex-girlfriend of the God of Thunder Jane Foster, a role that she already he played in Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013).
With Thor: Love and Thunder, Portman returns to the MCU after not having participated in Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and the interpreter was absolutely delighted in her meeting with Vanity Fair during the event: "It has been surreal to play this role and an incredible opportunity I turned 40 while making this movie, and becoming a superhero has been the best gift and something I never imagined," he commented in reference to the turn his character experiences in the fourth film in the saga.
And it is that in it we will see a very different Jane Foster, wielding her magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. The heroine is almost two meters tall and, of course, her body is a real party of muscles, something that has not gone unnoticed by anyone and with which even the interpreter herself is surprised: "It is not common for an actress of my height is chosen to embody a superheroine of 1.80".
Exhaustive training or CGI? It is the question that many ask themselves after seeing Natalie Portman's muscular arms, that she sports an absolutely toned body that has nothing to envy her ex-boyfriend. The answer is that no visual effects have been used, but some tricks have been used to make the performer appear 25 centimeters taller.
Being at the level of Chris Hemsworth as Thor required, in the words of the actress herself, "movie magic", but it has also been the result of intense training and a specific diet on the part of Portman, who in his day already faced to a similar challenge, although with a different objective, in Black Swan, a role for which he won the Oscar.
There is little more than a week left until we can enjoy the fourth installment of Marvel's Nordic God in "Thor: Love and Thunder", a film that has given much to talk about in recent days and that promises to be crowned the best of the character . If you are looking forward to seeing it as much as we are, at Zavvi we have found a large number of products with very interesting offers.
There are not a few products that we have been able to see about the four films that Thor has, but without a doubt the t-shirts have managed to offer spectacular designs, and also in Zavvi we can take two for only 28 euros. In the store we can find designs like this t-shirt with the name of Thor and his characteristic Mjölnir. But we can also choose another similar design but with the face of the King of Asgard instead of his hammer.
We can even find other designs that are spectacular from Infinity War, where we can see Thor with his characteristic lightning bolts. But we can also take home a design of one of the most unforgettable fights in the entire UCM in which Thor faced Hulk in the "Thor: Ragnarök" movie.
After the events of Avengers: Endgame, the only one of the original Avengers who continues to give war is Thor, waiting to see what happens to the Hulk in the She-Hulk series and where Hawkeye is headed after the end of his series. . Be that as it may, Chris Hemsworth is about to release his fourth film as the protagonist with Thor: Love and Thunder after more than a decade playing the God of Thunder. But will the actor continue as Thor after his new movie? The actor answers.
This is how he explained it in a recent interview with Extra TV during the film's premiere: “Every time I play Thor I ask myself, 'Will this be the last time they let me do it?' So I do not know. I'll come back as many times as I can until someone kicks me off the stage. I'm lovin 'it. My career is based on this character, coming back again and again and working with different directors and different casts has been an absolute joy," Hemsworth said.
“We will see, we will see what the fans want. I am willing to do anything, to have a good time and it is just what this experience with Marvel has been, "concludes the actor, admitting that at the moment he does not know if he will renew with Marvel Studios to appear in more movies, something that should give us a clue. about what may (or may not) happen to Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Let us remember that a few months ago Kevin Feige, director of Marvel Studios, made a similar statement: “There are many, many other Thor stories in the comics that we talk about a lot. And as we watch Chris Hemsworth grow and evolve with all this acting talent, I'd love to see how this very complex character continues to evolve."
Actor Christian Bale is returning to comics with his next role in 'Thor: Love and Thunder', and has now shared his influences for his portrayal of the villainous Gorr the Butcher of Gods, one of which is Kate Bush, the legendary English musician. who garnered renewed public attention for the use of his song 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)' on 'Stranger Things' Season 4.
Bale explained that he had no reservations about doing more superheroes after his previous role as Batman, and also says that he is thankful that his Gorr is not dressed the same as in the Marvel comics.
Although Thor: Love and Thunder will start showing in theaters on July 7, quite extensive spoilers have already surfaced. At this point, basically the entire plot of the movie has been leaked (at least partially), so if you don't want to know anything about the movie before its release, what are you doing here?.
The story of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster has surfaced on Reddit and is believed to have been originally shared by someone who attended the film's red carpet. Although the post is limited to outlining the specific details of the film, at the moment the accuracy of the information is unknown. Administrators of the subreddit hosting the report claim to have verified the details, lending legitimacy to the descriptions in the post.
First of all, those who have already seen the film warn that it is going to be surprisingly bittersweet: if you are expecting something along the lines of Taika Waititi's previous films, with a much more comedic tone, you are going to be…well, not disappointed at all. yes, but yes maybe a little discouraged.
To cut a long story short, Thor is on a mission with the Guardians of the Galaxy and they leave him in a kind of rehabilitation center, where he is reunited with Korg. Meanwhile, Jane Foster, who has cancer, visits New Asgard and Mjolnir is put back together when she "detects" it. She grabs him and becomes the Mighty Thor. The power of the hammer momentarily cures her cancer while she is transformed but it also removes all medical treatment, so when she turns back into a human she is sicker every time. This is taken from Jason Aaron's run of the comics.
On the other hand, Gorr, after losing his family, is looking for Eternity to return them to him. Since he doesn't get an answer, he finds the sword capable of destroying the gods and swears that he won't leave a single one alive. Thor meets with Jane and Valkyrie to stop Gorr. They try to warn Zeus, but he is a bit cocky and crazy, so they fight him and Valkyrie keeps her lightning bolt.
Thor realizes that the cancer is killing Jane with every transformation of hers and asks her to stop it, but she says that she wants to help and that being the Mighty Thor is an escape for her from her sad reality. So they all go to fight Gorr. Jane destroys Mjolnir again, sacrificing her powers to try to defeat the villain. This moves the grievously wounded Gorr, who says that he doesn't want to kill any more gods. His daughter comes back to life but he dies. Thor and Gorr's daughter go off looking for adventure.
In the first post-credits scene we see Zeus again, who is very pissed off at Thor and sends Hercules to kill him. There's no word on who plays Hercules, but it's very likely that this will be part of a (yet unannounced) fifth installment of Thor.
The end of 'Avengers: Endgame' marked the farewell of several of the original Avengers and it seems that we are in the middle of a relay stage for the MCU, although we are not very clear where they are going to throw things now. Of the founding members of the supergroup, the one that remains at the foot of the canyon is Chris Hemsworth's Thor, who returns in nothing in his fourth film as the protagonist.
It is not a secret that the actor has a great time playing Thor (or himself) on screen, but as with each new film, we always have a little doubt as to whether 'Thor: Love and Thunder' will indeed mark the last time that we see him in the MCU.
Hemsworth's original contract with Marvel Studios has been extended so that the Australian actor continues to participate in the MCU, since he should have expired years ago. 'Thor: Ragnarok' was a breath of fresh air and it is seen that Hemsworth is in no hurry to put aside Thor's cape, even though his contract has expired with the studio again.
It is not the first time that Hemsworth makes it clear that he does not want to let go of the character, and already in 2020 when the filming of 'Thor: Love and Thunder' began, he said that Thor was too young to retire at 1500 years old and that of course his fourth film was not a farewell. Nothing is set in stone yet, but Kevin Feige doesn't seem to completely close the door on more Thor movies with Hemsworth either.
Loki has participated in the first three films of the God of Thunder, either as an ally or as a villain. That is why it is normal for many Marvel fans to wonder if we will see him in Thor: Love and Thunder. Now we know the truth.
The answer is that Loki will not be in Thor: Love and Thunder. This is what actor Chris Hemsworth himself has commented, something that director Taika Waititi has also confirmed.
Chris Hemsworth: "He didn't want to get involved. He said: I hate all of you, and me in particular. And I was like, it's a shame. And that is. I mean, how many times can we kill him? … We love Tom. We love Tom. Yes. But he is dead. Not him, but the character of Loki."
Chris Hemsworth: "Obviously he's dead to us, as far as friendship goes (laughs)."
This makes quite a bit of sense when it comes to how the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding. Since Thor considers Loki dead since Thanos killed him in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). Although we do know that the 2012 version of him took the Cosmic Cube when the Avengers did the time heist of the Infinity Stones. From there, we have continued his story in his own Disney Plus series. So it wouldn't make much sense for him to be in Thor: Love and Thunder.
The good thing is that there will be 2 good tributes to Loki in Thor: Love and Thunder, since in the trailer we can see how Chris Hemsworth's character has a tattoo in his honor on his back. In addition, the filming of another scene from the Asgardian theater was leaked where Matt Damon plays an actor who plays the God of Deception for the amusement of tourists who go to New Asgard.
One of the most anticipated films by fans of Marvel Studios is the fourth installment of the Thor movies, which after the open ending that this character had in "Avengers Endgame" will show what may be the conclusion in the adventures of the 'god of thunder ', interpreted in the MCU by Chris Hemsworth.
With details in the story of "Thor Love and Thunder" such as the return of Jane Foster but now with the powers of the 'god of thunder' and the participation of Christian Bale, the Marvel film has generated much expectation among fans of the cinema of Superheros.
The expectation of the fans was set on the new official look of the tape, something that arrived on May 23, when Marvel Studios published the second trailer for the tape, in which the new stage of the "God of Thunder" is seen. , as well as the first images of Christian Bale as Gorr, the butcher of gods.
Now, a few days after its grand premiere in theaters in Colombia and the world, Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi, protagonist and director of the film, clarified whether Loki would have any appearance in the fourth installment of the "thunder god" saga of Marvel Studios.
Christian Bale returns to the superhero movie 10 years after hanging up the Batcape in The Dark Knight Rises, although this time he does it under the Marvel label and with a villain, Gorr, who wants to kill gods in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Although his terrifying and unrecognizable appearance in the film has already caused reactions of all kinds on networks (many compare him to Voldemort), we still have to wait until July 8, the day the film is released, to see if it is a worthy rival for Chris Hemsworth's Asgardian avenger.
And how did Bale get to the MCU? He may not have known what he was getting into, but he was determined to work with Taika Waititi. In an interview for Screen Rant, the Briton has assured that the New Zealand director joined the project: "For me, it was Waititi. I loved Thor: Ragnarok, like my family. We also loved Jojo Rabbit. And I had also worked with Natalie [Portman] and wanted to do it with Tessa [Thompson] and Chris [Hemsworth]."
