MC-Meh? Mixed Response to New ‘Thor: Love & Thunder’ Trailer


 

Marvel announced the title for Love and Thunder back in 2019 at San Diego Comic-Con, where studio boss Kevin Feige revealed that Natalie Portman would be returning to the franchise for the first since Thor: The Dark World (2013).

 

 

 

Chris Hemsworth recently promised fans that the new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder “is gonna blow your mind,” and now they can judge for themselves, after the new look debuted during Monday’s NBA playoff game on ABC.

So did it impress MCU fans?

 

 

In the new film, Portman’s Jane Foster will assume the mantle of Mighty Thor. Other stars include Tessa Thompson, returning as Valkyrie, and franchise newcomers Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. The project brings back actors from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, including Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista.

 

Filmmaker Taika Waititi returns to direct Love and Thunder after revitalizing the Thor franchise with Thor: Ragnarok (2017). In the years since, Waititi has won an Oscar and become a key part of the Disney family, acting in and directing episodes of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian and developing a Star Wars feature for the studio. 

 

Eric D. July didn’t hide his disgust with the trailer:

 

HAHA!! They're not even trying

 

Thor: Love and Thunder opens in theaters July 8.
