AceShowbiz - Marvel Entertainment isn't letting fans forget that there's a new blockbuster coming out this summer. One month after releasing the first trailer of "Thor: Love and Thunder", the studio is following it up with a new official trailer of the highly-anticipated movie.
Released during NBA East Finals playoff game between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat on Monday night, May 23, the trailer begins with Taika Waititi's Korg telling the story of "the space viking, Thor Odinson." After setting off on a new journey and getting in shape, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) reunites with his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).
As the two team up on a battlefield, the sparks apparently fly again between the superhero exes. In the meantime, they are fighting against Christian Bale's Gorr the God Butcher, who plans to slay all gods in the universe as he declares that "all gods will die."
The trailer also shows a funny moment in which Jane and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) go undercover as Thor gets caught by Zeus (Russell Crowe). Attempting to remove Thor's "disguise," Zeus disrobes the God of Thunder and accidentally exposes him naked, prompting girls to pass out.
"Thor: Love and Thunder" finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he's ever faced - a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who - to Thor's surprise - inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher's vengeance and stop him before it's too late.
Directed by Waititi, the movie is scheduled to open in U.S. theaters on July 8.
