New “Thor: Love and Thunder” Trailer Teases Thor Versus Gorr

Thor has learned a few things about epic team-building speeches in his history with the Avengers. Nobody was better at it than Captain America, as Cap showed again and again, perhaps most memorably in Avengers: Endgame, before the Avengers parted ways on a time-traveling quest to try and save the world. Again. But in Thor: Love and Thunder, it’s the God of Thunder’s turn to give a rousing speech. So how does he do?

Let’s say there are mixed results, and Thor’s flow is thrown off by his insectoid warrior friend Miek’s squeaky scribbling on a whiteboard. Yet the important bits that Thor’s trying to get across, namely that they’re all going to have to fight together to defeat Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) come through. Although Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) still isn’t moved by Thor’s rhetoric. “We’re all gonna die,” she sighs at the speech’s end. Captain America usually inspired a little more confidence than that, but then again, Valkyrie is a legendary realist.

By now you likely know that Love and Thunder will see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. Only now, Jane has undergone a bit of a superhero conversion and claims both the magical hammer Mjolnir and the mantle of the Mighty Thor. She’s ripped and ready to kick some butt. The Guardians of the Galaxy are also on hand to pitch in for the fight. Gorr, it seems, is hellbent on taking out all the Gods and Goddesses in the universe, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his vision through. Hence Thor’s call to action for all his super friends to pitch in and help him out.

Check out the new trailer below and see if you’re moved by Thor’s speech. We’re guessing you’ll be tickled by it, and are as excited as the rest of us for Taika Waititi’s sequel. Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8.
