In this article, we have put together all that we know about the movie which will give you a better idea of what to expect.
Thor 4: Love and Thunder – Everything We Know About the New Thor Movie
The Title and What to Expect
Looking at the titles of previous Thor movies (Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok) in comparison to Thor: Love and Thunder, it is apparent that there is a twist and a lot more to expect in this fourth installment.
The title of this fourth MCU Thor movie was revealed in San Diego Comic-Con which held in July 2019. We can relate with the “Thunder” aspect being a Thor thing but the “Love” part suggests there will likely be romance in the storyline. This is assumed to possibly play out with the return of a romantic partner from previous Thor movies or a character falling in love with another character in the film.
Whatever be the case, it is certain that we are going to get the best of both action and romance being acted out by an ensemble cast who have proven themselves time and over again.
Who are Thor 4: Love and Thunder Cast Members?
Just like the previous Thor movies, Taika Waititi will still be very much involved with Thor: Love and Thunder. He is the film’s writer and director with Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. In addition, Thor 4’s writer and director Taika Waititi will voice the character of Korg.
There Will be a Female Thor. Here’s What to Expect
Though in all the previous Thor installments, we got used to seeing Chris Hemsworth playing Thor, and as a result, we are all used to associating the character to a male figure. However, all that is set to change in Thor: Love and Thunder as Natalie Portman will play the character of a female Thor.
Her revelation as a female Thor came quite as a surprise as she was not seen in 2017 Thor: Ragnarok but rather in 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World. Being a female Thor, she will also be getting her own magical hammer. This twist in the storyline of the fourth Thor movie no doubt will thrill us in many ways.
How Many Thors Will There be in Thor 4: Love and Thunder?
Having established that there will be a new Thor to be played by a female character (Natalie Portman) and being cognizant of the fact that Chris Hemsworth’s Thor character will still be featured in Thor 4, it, therefore, brings up the question of how many Thors will be in the film?
The answer is there will be two Thors in Thor 4: Love and Thunder. The usual Chris Hemsworth’s Thor character and a female Thor character that will be played by Natalie Portman. In the film, Natalie won’t be referred to as female Thor, that is totally bland. Her character will instead be referred to as “Mighty Thor.”
There Will be an LGBTQ Superhero
Following the final defeat of Thanos in Avengers: Endgame and his installation of Valkyrie (played by Tessa Thompson) as King of Asgard. It has been revealed that Valkyrie will get herself a queen. This will make Valkyrie the first LGBTQ hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With regards to who her queen will finally emerge to be, speculations have it that Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) might likely be the new Queen of Asgard.
