Thor: Love and Thunder is set to deliver a brand-new adventure for Chris Hemsworth's titular Asgardian, marking the first time that an MCU hero will have four solo movies. Directed by Taika Waititi, the plot details of the sequel are still being kept under wraps, but it has been confirmed to tackle the transformation of Natalie Portman's Jane Foster into Mighty Thor

Joining Hemsworth and Foster is a stellar ensemble of new and returning characters, including a Gamora-less Guardians of the Galaxy team, Korg, and Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie. The God of Thunder and Mighty Thor are expected to duke it out against a dangerous villain in the form of Gorr the God Butcher

Marketing for Love and Thunder has yet to ramp up, but Marvel has been releasing official merchandise for the movie to give fans an idea of what to expect. One of the biggest question marks, though, is the trailer's actual release, leading everyone to speculate on when it will officially arrive. 

Now, as the film's release inches closer, it looks like the cast is gearing up for its promotional tour ahead of the unreleased trailer. 

Thor: Love and Thunder Press Tour Kicks Off

Thor star Chris Hemsworth posted a new image of himself, Taika Waititi, and Tessa Thompson on Instagram to confirm that Thor: Love and Thunder's press tour has officially begun.

Hemsworth shared the following caption, teasing fans that the upcoming film is "gonna be wild:"

"Some long lead press for Thor Love And Thunder with these two wonderful humans. A day full of wackiness and hilarity. Get ready folks this films gonna be wild!!"

When Will Thor 4's Trailer Be Released?

Chris Hemsworth's latest confirmation that Thor: Love and Thunder's press tour has begun could hint that the film's official trailer will drop soon. Releasing the trailer sooner rather than later would allow the press to come up with more questions related to the movie, considering that official footage is more reliable than online rumors.

Many would agree that the trailer's delay has essentially boosted the anticipation for the film, and signs indicate that the hype will heighten when actual footage is unveiled.

Whenever a press tour for an MCU film begins, noteworthy comments from the cast and crew could eventually lead to potential spoilers or further speculation about what to expect from the film's spoiler-heavy plot. Still, Hemsworth has no history of spoiling his own MCU projects, so it's safe to assume that there will be no accidental leaks from Love and Thunder

Meanwhile, Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi is best known for sharing hilarious answers during press tours, meaning that fans should expect notable quotes from the comedic director that could also include double meanings that tease the movie's narrative. 

While Tessa Thompson did reveal a potential spoiler about Valkyrie's new powers back in January, it's reasonable to assume that she learned her lesson, especially now that Marvel actors are being trained to avoid spoiling the project during interviews. 

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to premiere in theaters on July 8.
