The much awaited Thor love and Thunder trailer dropped and has left fans in a frenzy after seeing an entirely new outlook of Thor. It is set after the events of endgame when Thor decides to continue his journey with the Guardians rather than staying on New Asgard. The trailer already seems like a big hit and there are quite a few things special in Thor’s life as he tries to figure out what it is that he wants to do or is destined to do.
THE SUN WILL SHINE ON US
Before Loki dies (and later comes back) in the scene in Avengers: Infinity war. He proves his loyalty and love for his brother by his attempt to kill Thanos, which goes in vain. He expresses his love, devotion and hope for them by saying “The sun will shine on us again brother.” And the Love and thunder trailer is a bright trailer filled with the sun rays and in a particular shot Thor is seen sitting with te sun shinning directly on him. This may be an ode to Loki and his hope.
DEVELOPED ASGARD AND FORLORN VALKYRIE
The trailer gave us glimpses of New Asgard which was developed on Earth after Hela had destroyed their home and Thanos had destroyed their refugee ship. Those who survived built their home on Earth and named it New Asgard. We had seen it once in Endgame when Rocket and Hulk had visited to get Thor. Then it had been a quiet and forlorn place as half the Asgardians had blipped. But the new trailer reveals that New Asgard has had quite an extensive development with many technologies which seem to be of Asgard like that of a flying ship.
However we are also given a brief look of Valkyrie whom Thor had declared the ruler of New Asgard before joining the Guardians. The shot clearly shows Valkyrie unhappy and downright bored. Perhaps it is because she has found that the works of a king are not as exciting as she had expected and that she misses her old life back at sakaar.
MCU ZEUS AND OLYMPUS
There had already been talk of Love and Thunder introducing MCU’s Zeus played by Russel Crowe and a good look at Olympus. Although we haven’t fully seen him, the trailer just showed a shot of his back. It became obvious that he was Zeus with his Greek clothing and the thunderbolt in his hand. We were also shown a glimpse of Olympus where all the gods reside.
A PERFECTLY COMIC ACCURATE SCENE
The one thing that makes MCU better than all other studios is that it uses comic accurate scenes from the comics to use in the movies which make it so special. Taika Waititi has taken upon himself and has given us a scene which seems like a comic book picture come to life with its accuracy. Although there have been innumerable comic book scenes used in Marvel movies, this one just takes the cake.
A COMIC ACCURATE SUIT
MCU phase 4 has been all about giving fans the perfect comic accurate suit. WandaVision, Falcon in Falcon and Winter soldier, The final spiderman suit in No Way Home. The trailer gives us a glimpse of Thor wearing the classic Thor costume from the comics.
We got to see a few scenes with the Guardians but were obviously disappointed when there was no Gamora. The original Gamora was sacrificed by Thanos to obtain the soul stone but then when Thanos time travelled back from in Endgame Gamora came with him and was the only one left while the others bit the dust. Since then it seems that she has been on her own and we will apparently catch her only in GOTG Vol3.
JANE RETURNS WITH OG MJOLNIR
The best part of the trailer was obviously the return of Jane Foster as Lady Thor but what shocked us more was the fact that she returned with the original Mjolnir, the one which Hela had destroyed into pieces. Although we can still see the cracks in it, it seems to be working the same as before and this time on Lady Thor’s commands.
