This year three Marvel movies are coming to our theaters. And, along with the curiosity aroused to know what they will do with the second part of Black Panther, the most anticipated is Thor: Love and Thunder. Taika Waikiki’s spin on the franchise breathed new life into it and connected with audiences. This new installment of the Nordic god seems to be going around, so we tell you everything that is known so far about Thor: Love and Thunder.
Chris Hemsworth is and will forever be the most recognizable face of Thor. Although his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been somewhat irregular, signing some of the worst movies of the UCM (Thor: The Dark World, ugh), the truth is that it is back in fashion.
The address given to him by Taika Waikiki in Thor: Ragnarök breathed new life and participation in the Avengers saga has put it in the foreground.
That is why, this 2022, Thor: Love and Thunder it can be a blockbuster. we tell you all the details and what is known, starting with the most important.
When is Thor: Love and Thunder released in Spain?
The official date is July 8, 2022, after having suffered several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The premiere will be simultaneous worldwide, so we will not have to wait to see if Thor has lost weight since Avengers: Endgame.
What is the film about?
The truth is the argument remains secret. The script, written by the director Taika Waikiki himself, along with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, has been modified many times and we do not know what it will really bring us.
Waikiki says it’s the craziest movie he’s ever made and that it will continue in the surreal spirit of Thor: Ragnarök. In fact, he has stated that wants to multiply even more what he already did in the previous installment, which resulted in a different movie than usual in Marvel.
So it is to be expected humor in abundance, colorful and some details that have dropped actors, director and even the almighty head of Marvel, Kevin Feige.
Among them, it stands out that Thor will be accompanied by Lady Thor, played by Natalie Portman, who reprises the role of Jane Foster. Lady Thor references the story arc mighty thor, in which Foster can wield the legendary hammer Mjölnir and receive the same powers. than the Asgardian superhero.
Apparently, the movie will take a lot of inspiration from this Jason Aaron comic, which was pretty well received.
A new Thor and much more
Natalie Portman herself revealed that the fact that Jane Foster has cancer, something that also happens in mighty thor. However, it is unlikely to pick up every plot line in the comic.
Apparently, the main villain will be Gorr, a terrible god, and not Mangog. Similarly, Thor, in the MCU, joins the Guardians of the Galaxy, while, in the comic, Jane Foster takes the role of Thor after he loses his ability to lift the hammer, by ceasing to be deserving of it. Nothing is certain, but it seems that Thor’s evolution in the movies is very different at the moment.
Thor already wielded the ax stormbreaker in the Avengers, leaving the hammer to Captain America. Similarly, he stepped away from his role as regent of Asgard. That suggests that Thor will probably give up the hammer and the traditional role of Thor, leaving the perfect opportunity for Jane Foster to step up.
As a curiosity, you can slightly appreciate what Thor and Lady Thor will be like in the movie thanks to a t-shirt merchandise leaked in this tweet.

Besides that, apparently Valkyrie will try to find someone to rule Asgard by her side., Korg (in an endearing character of stone) will try to find love, and, at the very least, The Guardians of the Galaxy will appear, which are more than confirmed.
Who goes out? Marvel movie cast
In the casting we find the usual suspects, in addition to some important names, who will have a prominent role.
- Chris Hemworth will be Thor again, the most powerful of the Avengers.
- Natalie Portman will be Jane Foster and, at the same time, Lady Thor, landing again in the UCM, after a somewhat turbulent period of now yes, now no.
- Tessa Thompson reprises her role as Valkyrie, new regent of what remains of Asgard.
- Christian Bale will be Gorr, the Butcher God and the film’s main antagonist. This has been the big surprise, since Bale himself, after taking off his Batman cape, declared that he would not make any more superhero movies, since he was not interested in them. We suppose that a good check has worked miracles.
- Chris Pratt (starlord), dave baptist (drax), Karen Gillian (nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (Groot) will once again be The Guardians of the Galaxy. Quite an appetizer before his next film, which opens in 2023.
- Russell Crowe is another of the big names joining the UCM for the first time. Apparently, will do nothing less than Zeus, the Greek god of gods, with which, surely, we will see an interaction between mythologies. In Marvel, the Olympians are powerful beings inspired by Hellenic mythology, as the Asgardians are in Norse.
- Jeff Goldblum will reprise the role of the Grand Master.
- Sam Neil, most famous for Jurassic Park, apparently takes on the role of a fake Odin.
- Matt Damon it seems that he will make a cameo again, as in ragnarok. According to leaked photos from the shoot, he appears again as an actor who plays a fake Loki, along with other actors who play the fake Thor and Hela (by the way, a cameo from Melissa McCarthy).
As we can see, there is a huge number of names and characters, which will undoubtedly delight the most fanatical.
At the moment, we do not have a trailer yet and there is much to know about Thor: Love and Thunder. It is to be hoped that some progress will drop very soon and, this summer, we return to fight on the side of the god of thunder.

At the moment we do not have any progress on the film, although seeing that it has been delayed several times and that in early July we will see it in theaters, Marvel Studios should already be preparing its release or at least a first contact with teaser mode.
Don’t worry, as soon as we have a first video preview, you’ll be the first to know around here.
