The God of Thunder has returned! After weeks of anticipation from fans, the first teaser for Thor: Love and Thunder has finally arrived. Due to the return of Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, as well as the film's title, there was little doubt that Thor 4 would be a wild ride. Now, fans have an idea of what Chris Hemsworth's post-Avengers: Endgame tale has in store.
Even though the footage was only a teaser's length, its 90 seconds were jam-packed with reveals and first looks. Those included the debuts of Jane Foster's Mighty Thor and Russell Crowe's Zeus as well as the returns of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Tessa Thompson's King Valkyrie.
To mark the start of Love and Thunder's marketing campaign, Thor's own Chris Hemsworth and other MCU stars have taken to social media to share their own reactions.
Chris Hemsworth Responds to Thor: Love and Thunder Teaser
To celebrate the release of Thor: Love and Thunder's debut teaser, Chris Hemsworth posted his own reaction online while also promising fans that "you'll laugh you'll cry, then you'll laugh so much you'll cry some more!!"
The actor's full tweet can be read below:
"Here’s the first teaser for Thor Love And Thunder. All the feels of a classic Thor adventure . Big, loud and Crazy and full of heart. You’ll laugh you’ll cry, then you’ll laugh so much you’ll cry some more!! Love and Thunder coming at you all July 8th!!"
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn also shared the teaser on Twitter while also quoting a line from the trailer which reads, "Look into the eyes of the ones you love. #ThorLoveAndThunder teaser trailer." Gunn is currently filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Love and Thunder's director and supporting star Taika Waititi also shared the teaser with his own signature brand of humor in a tweet:
"Here is the full length finished movie. Eat and enjoy."
Thor 4 Finally Brings the Thunder
Even though much of Marvel's Phase 4 has centered on the Multiverse and the MCU's ever-growing freshman class, Thor: Love and Thunder is proof that Marvel Studios hasn't abandoned its remaining OG Avengers.
In addition to Love and Thunder being the fourth installment in the Thor franchise, the film boasts an extensive cast while also teeing up the Guardians of the Galaxy threequel, which is set to release in 2023.
Until now, the story surrounding the summer flick has actually centered on its lack of marketing as opposed to its potential impact. In fact, Love and Thunder shattered an MCU record, first set by The Incredible Hulk, as the shortest marketing campaign for a Marvel Studios release (time between first trailer and release date).
Just why it's taken so long to see Thor, Jane Foster, the Guardians, and now Zeus, is still up for debate. However, since its premiere is just over two months away, Marvel fans can expect even more footage sooner than later.
Thor: Love and Thunder will debut in theaters on July 8.
