Natalie Portman Becomes The God of Thunder In New 'Thor' Trailer

·2-min read

Thor: Love and Thunder has unveiled the first look at the upcoming Marvel movie.

Once the Multiverse of Madness is firmly cracked open by Doctor Strange, the MCU will revisit the kingdom of Asgard — or what's left of it in the aftermath of Hela's destruction in Thor: Ragnarok.

The movie will give fans some crossover closure from the Avengers: Endgame cliffhanger as director Taika Waititi finally reveals what happened when Thor hitched a ride on the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship.

The trailer begins with a Hakuna Matata-style clip, showing Thor growing from a child to a teenager and then becoming the God of Thunder we all know and love as he vows to focus on peace and finding out who he is as he puts his days of battle behind him.

Thor's also joined by the Guardians of the Galaxy on this latest adventure, and Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) gives him some sage advice: "You ever feel lost? Just look into the eyes of the people you love."

The humour we all loved from Thor: Ragnarok is clearly back with this film too, as Quill is obviously looking at Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Groot (Vin Diesel), Drax (Dave Bautista) and the rest of the Guardians while he says this, however Thor breaks his eye line.

The end of the trailer sees Thor shocked as a hand reaches up to grab Mjolnir before the camera pans down to reveal it's Natalie Portman's Jane Foster wielding the hammer.

Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie returns as the 'King of New Asgard' alongside Jaimie Alexander's Lady Sif to help Thor and Jane Foster take down the ominously named Gorr the God Butcher — played by Batman legend Christian Bale.

Valkyrie will become more of a focus of the central storyline in Love and Thunder as the Asgardian's powers are more fully explored.

Despite her refusal to give away "spoilers", the actress did recently tell W Magazine: "She can sense when someone is close to death, and she takes them into Valhalla, which is essentially the afterlife.

"She can revive people. But when she revives people, sometimes she ends up in their body. It's a weird thing. It can be quite erotic. And then she has superhuman strength and is essentially God."

A god? This immense power will seemingly put the King of New Asgard directly in the path of a self-proclaimed "God Butcher"...
