While Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the next big MCU movie coming this year, it’s Thor: Love & Thunder that steals the show for a day. Double blow with a first trailer unveiled a few hours ago and this synopsis released by the house of ideas.
This April 18, 2022 is to be marked with a red iron for fans of Marvel, and in particular of Thor. A first trailer for Thor: Love & Thunder has just been unveiled by Marvel Studios , where we see the god of thunder and his interpreter Chris Hemsworth who seems to be preparing with nostalgia for his post-superhero career . The sound of Guns N’ Roses and the many doses of humor contribute to this feeling.
The opportunity for fans to discover the atmosphere of the next feature film by Taika Waititi (already at work on Thor: Ragnarok ) and to note the presence of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the return of Natalie Portman in Jane Foster and by Tessa Thompson . On the other hand, no preview of the villain Gorr, played by actor Christian Bale, nor of brother Loki. On the other hand, we know, and with certainty, that Russell Crowe ( Gladiator, Man of Steel ) will lend his features to Zeus. No doubt, this first trailer serves as an appetizer to other more nervous goods to come.
Barely recovered from this shot of 1 minute 30 of melancholy that the synopsis of this 4th part of the adventures of Thor has just fallen. We imagine that the film will relate the adventures of the holder of the hammer of Mjolnir after the events of Avengers: Endgame , then in search of tranquility. We also suspect that he will be prevented by the intervention of Gorr the butcher of the gods, who will come to wreak havoc, and that Thor will face it.
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) embarks on a journey unlike anything he’s been on before: a quest for inner peace . But his retreat is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), who seeks to make the gods disappear. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his hammer magical, Mjolnir. Together they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
If this synopsis relates what will await MCU fans next summer, several details are still unknown at this time, such as the why and how of Jane Foster’s ability to possess Mjolnir.
Directed by Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, Thor: Love and Thunder will be released in French theaters on July 13, 2022. The studio is dropping a first official poster in passing as a launch for the film’s promotional campaign.

In the meantime, it’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that focuses the attention, with its multiple revelations. Latest, the place occupied by the Darkhold , the powerful artifact in the plot. Less than a month from its theatrical release, this second opus of Doctor Strange promises to be daunting.
