Thor: Love and Thunder is a 2022 American fantasy action superhero film and the fourth entry in the Thor franchise, following Thor: Ragnarok. The female-focused storyline is based on Jason Aaron’s ‘The Mighty Thor’ wherein a cancer-stricken Jane Foster takes up the mantle and powers of Thor.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), who also reprises his on-screen role as Korg, from a screenplay co-written with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Someone Great).
The movie stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Russell Crowe as Zeus and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
Meanwhile, The Asylum is releasing a mockbuster movie titled Thor: God of Thunder to cash in on the Marvel film. The Asylum previously released Almighty Thor in 2011 to tie in with Marvel’s first Thor movie.
Previously, speaking with Collider, Karen Gillan (who plays Nebula) described Thor: Love and Thunder as “bonkers”. The actress said:
“Taika really brought out the bonkers side. I think everyone is just really, really funny and bonkers and wild… I don’t know if it’s personal [levity].” Gillian continues, “Like I don’t think [Nebula’s] finding herself funny or being funny, but in her seriousness, I think we will find her funny, and just the pure aggression that we’ve tapped into.”
“Thor: Love and Thunder gets better when it’s not trying to desperately recapture the magic of Ragnarok. Most of the humor doesn’t land as well as it did the first time, but Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, & Christian Bale do the best with it.” Discussing Film’s Andrew J. Salazar
“Another classic Thor adventure! Thor: Love and Thunder is everything I wanted it to be. Big, colorful, weird Guns N’ Roses-fueled battles to go w/ a hopelessly romantic story about discovering love in unexpected places. Christian Bale & Russell Crowe are especially great. And Korg!” Erik Davis from Fandango
“Thor: Love and Thunder is the GREATEST movie Marvel has made so far! I’m not joking. I haven’t laughed that hard since Ragnarok and I feel invested in Marvel again in a way that I haven’t since Endgame. Also, bring tissues. The journey is chefs kiss from start to finish!” Lyra Hale, Fangirlish
“Thor: Love and Thunder is a vivid and vibrant blast that delivers. Hemsworth’s Thor remains a jewel in Marvel’s crown. Bale’s Gorr is a killer boogeyman blending the campy and the creepy. Portman’s Foster and Thompson’s Valkyrie are a top notch pairing. Crowe’s Zeus is chef’s kiss” Simon Thompson review critic for Forbes and Variety
“Thor: Love and Thunder surpasses all expectations balancing absolutely bombastic insanity with moving character driven stories. Christian Bale is top tier and Natalie Portman is truly outstanding. Waititi may have just delivered the MCU’s best movie of Phase 4″ Caitlin Tyrrell from The Illuminerdi
“Thor: Love and Thunder has an Appetite For Destruction & laughs. It’s totally rad! Taika Waititi delivers a subversive, irreverent spectacle. Great story, stakes & character-building. Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman, superb. Russell Crowe & Christian Bale slip easily into the world.” Courtney Howard writer for Variety
“Thor: Love and Thunder is f-cking great. I think instantly one of my favorite Marvel movies – probably cause it’s easily the funniest, yet still had me choked up by the end. I hope Taika Waititi never stops making Thor movies.” Kevin Polowy from Yahoo! Entertainment
