We are that much closer to the release of Disney and Marvel’s next epic film, Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Love and Thunder. And to help us celebrate Thorsday, they have shared a brand new teaser showing off the star-studded cast we will get to see. Keeping up with the other trailers, we are blessed with the sweet 80s classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns ‘N Roses and some pretty funny one-liners as Thor (Chris Hemsworth) lists off who is on the official team against Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale).
And who made the team? Korg (Waititi), of course, will be fighting at his best friend’s side. We’ve also got Thor’s ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who is kicking ass as Lady Thor. And we can’t forget Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who has been serving as King of New Asgard. Plus, Thor’s new friends, the Guardians of the Galaxy, will be around, including Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Drax (Dave Bautista), Nebula (Karen Gillian), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper). Oh – and we can’t forget the two giant ghosts.
Thor: Love and Thunder picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame as Thor and the rest of the world try to return to their lives after everything that has happened. But he and the others are called back to action when Gorr, the God Butcher, sets off on a galactic journey to kill all of the gods. Waititi’s involvement in bringing the Thor storyline back to life has been a blessing to Marvel fans. His approach to these stories and characters is refreshing and downright entertaining. Just watching this trailer gets us excited to dive into this story.
Alongside the main cast, Jeff Goldblum will be reprising his role as the Grandmaster and will be joined by Matt Damon, Sam Neill and Luke Hemsworth, who are playing Asgardian actors playing the roles of Loki, Odin and Thor. Because in our hearts, Matt Damon will always be Loki. Melissa McCarthy will also be joining them as an Asgardian actress playing Hela. Thor: Love and Thunder will also star Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Akosia Sabet as Bast and Ben Falcone, Jenny Morris and Simon Russell Beale in undisclosed roles.
Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8, 2022. Check out the new teaser trailer below! Are you excited to see this in theaters? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
