Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman Suit Up For ‘Thor 4’ Magazine Covers

Two Thors join forces!

Thor Love And Thunder

Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are both suiting up as Thor in Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder and new magazine covers show off the Asgardian duo.

Thor: Love and Thunder will see Natalie Portman return to the Thor franchise as Jane Foster, taking up Thor’s old hammer Mjolnir for herself as she takes on the power and title of the Mighty Thor. Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson returns with his new axe Stormbreaker at his side, getting himself back into shape as he searches for a life beyond the duties of a superhero. It looks like his peace will be short-lived, though, as he and Jane come into conflict with Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher.

Thor & Jane, Side By Side

In two new covers for the upcoming issue of Total Film magazine, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor can be seen side by side in their new costumes for the movie. The standard cover shows off Thor’s new blue and gold outfit and Jane’s restored Mjolnir, while the subscriber-exclusive cover shows both Thors’ new helmets.

While Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster wears a masked helmet that is reminiscent of the Mighty Thor’s comic-book look, Chris Hemsworth’s new mask is more of a surprise. Revealed in the trailer for Love and Thunder, Thor’s mask hails back to a look he briefly adopted in the comics, alongside blue and gold battle armor that may have been the inspiration for his suit in the new film. The new image offers a better look at the helmet’s design, which incorporates an eagle-head crest. Check out the images below:

The standard cover also describes Thor: Love and Thunder as a “detective-romcom-thriller,” giving some indication of the film’s tone. The romcom aspect is hardly surprising, given the film’s subtitle and director Taika Waititi’s distinctive comedy stylings. The detective element of the film may be presumed to come from the hunt for Christian Bale’s Gorr as he murders the various gods of the universe.

Here is the synopsis for Thor: Love and Thunder:

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) 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 (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), 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.

Directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, and Russell Crowe.
