Thor: Love and Thunder, all you need to know


After Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the new chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be dedicated to the God of Thunder, Thor, again played by Chris Hemsworth. Fourth solo film dedicated to the Asgardian after Thor, Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, Thor: Love and Thunder will be a direct emanation of the events that affected the Avenger following Avengers: Endgame, a moment in which we were able to appreciate a touching emotional characterization of the character. At the time, critics focused mainly on Thor's Dude aspect, perfect material for memes and mockery among friends, losing sight of the long and accurate emotional definition of the character, which seems to be central to Thor: Love And Thunder.

Subscribe now to Disney + for € 8.99 per month or € 89.90 per year The announcement of the fourth film dedicated to the God of Thunder immediately established itself as one of the most anticipated titles of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thanks to the return of a particularly loved and mysteriously overlooked character in the last chapters of the Avengers saga, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). The previous productions linked to Phase Four of the MCU have shown how within the ideas of Marvel Studios there is the will to experiment by moving towards new narrative directions, offering not only space for new characters (such as Moon Knight or Ms. Marvel), but while also giving familiar faces from the franchise a new depth.

Marvel Cinematic Universe - Phase Four: the soul behind the mask

| ); }
This feeling of danger constant is not only the prerogative of the common man, but has also been extended to superheroes, who found themselves having to face challenges that are not only superheroic, but also more earthly and intimate. From the discovery of the complicated duality of the superhero's life emphasized by Spider-Man: No Way Home to the detachment and necessary reunion with more everyday problems, as presented in The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. The common thread of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be not only a search for a different narrative dimension, identified in the potential of the multiverse, but also a more focused and intimate portrait of the old protagonists of the franchise. An analysis that is now being extended to Thor.

Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Thinking back to Thor's life within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would be easy to limit oneself to the more playful aspect of the 'Asgardian. In his first appearance he was gigionesque, he aimed at the construction of an irony based on the profound difference between earthly life and that of an alien from a world of gods. Thor's presence on Earth was initially seen as a kind of punishment for his arrogance, his excessive boldness in being the designated successor of Odine, the Father of All, lord of Asgard. From this first encounter with a different reality, the human one, Thor begins a personal path of growth, which leads him to lose his arrogance, pushing him to assume a role more worthy of his lineage.

The encounter with the other heroes of the Earth and the subsequent formation of the Avegners represents the starting point of this maturation. The meeting with Jane Foster, a human capable of making the God of Thunder fall in love, is a further emotionally important step for Thor, who soon finds himself having to face an epochal challenge: the end of his own world. The premonitory vision experienced during Wanda Maximoff's mental intrusion in Avengers: Age of Ultron was the first hint of a looming threat to Thor, who following the events of Thor: Ragnarok witnessed the end of his own world, a death of which he was deliberated to do, choosing to free the demon Surtur to stop his sister Hela (Cate Blanchett).

Thor: Love and Thunder teaser trailer When we find him five years after the snap of Thanos' fingers, Thor has led the few Asgardians left to Earth, creating the village of New Asgard . Although nominally their king, it is Valkyria (Tessa Thompson) who holds these people together, as the God of Thunder has decided to close himself off to the world, suffocated by his pain. The Fat Thor we see is not a comic character, or rather he is also comic, but he is a suffering figure, who has chosen to detach himself completely from his previous life, preferring to remember his great exploits as a protection, a negation of his greatest failure. In his inner fall, Thor becomes human, he approaches mortal condition as never before, with the fallibility of him. An emotional state from which he is healed by his mother Frigga (Renè Russo), when traveling back in time he manages to recover the Reality Gem and its Mjolnir.

To arrive prepared to the vision of Thor: Love and Thunder, we can then re-watch the following chapters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

Thor (2011) - First appearance of Thor, with the God of Thunder being sent to Earth by Odin (Anthony Hopkins), as punishment for almost causing a war. While Thor on our world realizes the importance of his role and falls in love with the scientist Jane Foster, in Asgard his half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) usurps the throne of Odin, but despite Loki's attempts to prevent his return, Thor manages to arrive on Asgard and restore order.

Avengers (2012) - Following the plans of the Mad Titan Thanos, Loki tries to conquer the Earth, leading to the birth of the Avengers, a formation of superheroes which is also joined by Thor, intent on stopping his brother and protecting our world, which he is fond of.

Thor: The Dark World (2013) - Jane Foster, during a search, comes into contact with Aether, a mysterious matter from immense power, coveted by the Dark Elves of Svartalphahemir as a means of imposing darkness on the entire universe. In an attempt to save her, Thor takes the woman to Asgard, but this prompts the dark elves led by Malekith to attack Odin's palace, killing Queen Frigga. Following this death, Thor, Jane and Loki, who offers to help in exchange for the right to avenge Frigga, confront Malekiht and thwart her plan. The Aether extracted from Jane's body is brought to the Collector, who reveals that it is one of the gems of infinity.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Thor along with the Avengers faces the menace of Ultron, artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner who rebels against the creators and threatens to destroy the world. During this mission, Wanda, initially an ally of Ultron, imposes on the Asgardian a vision of Ragnarok, the end of her world. Upon Ultron's defeat, Thor sets out for space, intent on finding the Infinity Stones, powerful artifacts that could represent salvation for Asgard.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017) - Disappeared from radar after Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor discovers how in reality already after the clash with Malekith on the throne of Asgard sat Loki, who pretended to be Odin. The true Father of All had escaped to Earth, where he is found by his children, with the help of Stephen Strange, shortly before the god dies, leaving their children one last truth: they have a sister Hela, goddess of death. Upon Odin's death, Hela appears to reclaim the right to rule Asgard, but her ruthless methods push Thor and Loki to counter her, ultimately leading to Ragnarok, the end of Asgard. As the demon Sultur destroys his world, Thor manages to lead the surviving Asgardians into space to a new home.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame - As he seeks a new home for his people, Thor clashes with Thanos, who in his search for the Infinity Stones, does not hesitate to kill Loki, who attempts to save his brother, and condemn Thor to death in the depths of space. Saved by the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor manages to create a new weapon, the Strombreaker, and vainly join the fight against Thanos on Earth, failing to prevent Thanos from carrying out his plan. Five years later, Thor, a man destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world, is involved in a daring plan to repair the damage done by Thanos, defeating him and deciding, once the mission is complete, to embark on a new journey among the stars with the Guardians of the Galaxy. .

The cast of Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor (Chris Heimsworth) - After his last appearance in Avengers: Endgame, the God of Thunder appears to have regained his desire for adventure, leaving for space aboard the Milano, the spaceship of the Guardians of the Galaxy, leaving Valkyria with the task of guiding the Asgardians who survived the Ragnarok. It will be this search for a lost self and the desire to return to being a true hero that will guide Thor's exploits in his new film

Gorr (Christian Bale) - Alien from the tragic past, Gorr is the last survivor of a world destroyed by a terrible tragedy. A destruction that came despite the prayers and supplications to their divinities, left hordes at the desperate request for help from an entire world. Feeling betrayed by the gods who were supposed to protect him, Gorr decides to give life to his own crusade, with the ultimate goal of eliminating every deity of the Galaxy

Valkyria (Tessa Thompson) - After being presented as an Asgardian renegade , Valkyria has been elevated to the leadership role of the surviving Asgardians and taking refuge on Earth.
