Thor: Love and Thunder will see its titular character going by way of a number of large modifications. Most distinguished is his ex-girlfriend, Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, receiving his powers, as teased through the movie’s announcement manner again in 2019. This was impressed by a well-received latest comics arc by Jason Aaron and, if the film lifts the essential components, will discover Thor struggling a disaster of confidence and start referring to himself as ‘Odinson.’
However judging from a rapidly deleted video posted by Chris Hemsworth’s stunt double Bobby Holland Hanton, we’re nonetheless going to see the God of Thunder strutting his stuff. The TikTok clip (screenshots from which you’ll try beneath) confirmed a stunt involving him leaping excessive into the air, smashing a field with Mjolnir after which touchdown in a classically superheroic pose.
It was a really brief video, however tells us fairly a couple of issues concerning the film. One is affirmation that Thor shed his Avengers: Endgame weight and returned to his Infinity Struggle look. This isn’t precisely a shock, although I’ll positively miss the Bro Thor that Hemsworth performed so effectively.
Considerably extra intriguing, nevertheless, is that we now know that the hero is ditching Stormbreaker in favour of fine previous Mjolnir. The MCU’s Mjolnir met its finish in Thor: Ragnarok, with the characters borrowing a model of the hammer from an alternate universe with a view to battle Thanos and returning it after they have been finished. We already had an enormous trace Mjolnir could be again when Natalie Portman raised it above her head through the Love and Thunder announcement, however how is that this attainable?
Properly, within the comics, the weapon has been destroyed a couple of instances, however has at all times been in a position to be rebuilt from core fragments that may nonetheless decide “worthiness.” In spite of everything, when Hela smashed Mjolnir, she merely shattered it into items, so on the level Jane Foster proves herself worthy, the hammer will doubtless spontaneously reform for her. But when that’s the case, how is it again in Chris Hemsworth’s arms?
That is still to be seen, however Thor: Love and Thunder is at present filming in Australia, so let’s hope we get some extra set photographs that shed a bit of sunshine on what’s to come back.
