There has been a lot of hype surrounding the release of #McuMovie, but it’s time to show you why I think Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be one the most exciting Mcu movie of 2022.
The film will premiere in November 2022 via #DisneyPlus. Marvel Studios have just made an ambitious movie with this project, as they are planning for a big superhero ensemble with some very important characters like Thor, Loki, Hulk, Black Widow, Mjolnir and many more. This movie will follow up on their 2018 original Avengers’ Endgame which starred Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and many more amazing actors who will get part of this epic story.
Here’s what else we know about the upcoming MCU movie (spoiler alert):
Thor: Love & Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, aka Thor the God of Thunder. It’s set within the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War and follows the events that led to the deaths of both Thor’s parents and his beloved brother, Bucky. He must return home, and reunite with Mifune and all of his friends from Asgard. Along the way he’ll team up with Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Vision to fight against enemies and new threats.
Thor: Love and Thunder is directed by Taika Waititi, who helmed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. We also know that the production will kick off in May, but what the cast and crew have been doing in recent months has us excited for when things finally start filming in July!
Thor stars Chris Hemsworth as his character, Odin, making him the only actor to ever play two characters within one role and possibly even becoming the first man to take on the role of God of Thunder. In Thor’s comics, Odin was considered “father to everything,” from goddesses to gods even though he did not actually know any of them until after he became God. But now the Gods are back up and running at #DisneyPlus, and fans can expect all the best from the God of Thunder.
In the Marvel Universe, there are four major classes that exist, starting with Gods, then Humans, followed by Aliens, then Titans, then Dwarfs are humans, so to speak, and lastly Gorillas. So, how does this Thor come into contact with those different groups? For starters, you’ll see Thor interact with Gamora, Nebula, Wiccan twins, Draxus, Groot, Riri Williams and Valkyrie. We also only got our first look at Thor and Gamora together with Thor and Natasha Romanoff getting married earlier in August!
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set to shoot its initial shooting schedule in the summer with additional schedules due out next year. So with a couple weeks to go between the theatrical release and the premiere, here’s what we know:
The casting begins
As much as we had hoped for Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as Thor Odinson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he unfortunately won’t be returning to the silver screen because of scheduling issues due to Marvel’s Phase 4. But hopefully we’ll be treated with this stellar cast, including Thor. Let’s be honest; nothing is more satisfying than seeing your favorite hero reunited without the distraction of anything else. Also, Thor is the second most popular and biggest Avenger with over 25 million followers across social media and that was one of my main reasons.
With that said, you have already seen Thor and Gamora getting married early as well as other glimpses of her relationship with Vision. Hopefully, the newlywed pair will bring fans along on the adventure. Unfortunately, the movie is likely to focus mainly on Thor’s journey of trying to retrieve one of Mifune’s stones. A brief tease showed how the stone could help people see better through a dark portal or tunnel, but little else was revealed.
Thor: Love and Thunder is definitely going to be one of the grandest Marvel movies I’ve seen. Fans can expect to see a mixture of classic Marvel heroes such as Falcon and Winter Soldier alongside other heroes like Rocket Raccoon, Spider-Man, Thor and others. As far as action scenes go, Thor is expected to jump head-first into battle on multiple occasions, and you can expect great visual effects, incredible sound design, and plenty of fun Easter eggs. What more could you want out of a superhero movie?
Besides Thor and Gamora finally meeting, I’m sure everyone’s anticipation as to how Thor will change once again after the death of his father. Will he realize who he truly is and find himself? Are the Gods and Goddess even real? How long will Thor spend as god-king before being destroyed by Thanos and sent to earth to die in the dust? Who knows what’s waiting in store for Thor to face yet another enemy yet again? You can expect many surprises to happen during the MCU films, and we’re certainly looking forward to sharing them with you once the movie goes into production in a few months.
