Hello, fellow moviegoers! My normal publication schedule is sort of out of hand this week because of the holiday, so I’ve been scrambling to find my footing and decide what to publish. The movie news world gave me something in the recent release of its preview of Thor: Love and Thunder. I’ll confess, I haven’t done my full “research” as I write this because I want to get some thoughts down pre first, but from what I am seeing, I am already a little disappointed.MOVIE NEWS: NEW ‘THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER’ TO MAKE CHANGE #MOVIENEWS #THOR #THORLOVEANDTHUNDER #CHRISHEMSWORTH #MOVIES #MARVEL #MCU #NEWS Click To Tweet
According to one overview of this fourth film in the Thor franchise from Marvel, the film will follow our character, “Thor goes 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.”
The film will see the return of Natalie Portman (who, don’t mistake me, I’m glad is back), Jaime Alexander, Tessa Thompson, and of course, Chris Hemsworth.
Ok, here’s my thought. I liked Thor, cannot remember much about its sequel and had way too much fun watching Thor: Ragnarok. This plot? Eh, not thrilled with. Why must writer’s “replace” (in some sense) every hero I come to love? Like, why not let Jane adopt something that’s very not Thor and make her her own person? Or just keep her as is and let her brilliance be the team dynamic? I don’t know. Just feels “off” and lazy to me. Also not thrilled with the whole “inner peace” idea. That said, I’m going to watch the teaser and depending on the reaction to that, who knows, maybe I’ll eventually see Thor: Love and Thunder.
The promotional material and even ‘Ragnarok’ gives these movies this kind of rocker vibe. I kind of like this because it sets Thor’s franchise apart from the rest of The Avengers. The film will release July 8. If you do want to watch the preview, you can find it at the link below.
