As tickets go on sale for Thor: Love and Thunder, a new teaser for the film and a collection of new posters have been released.
In the latest teaser trailer for next month’s Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth’s Asgardian Avenger lays down his plan for dealing with Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher – “a maniac who seeks to end us all,” as Thor puts it. To combat the threat of Gorr, Thor vows to put together “the greatest team ever,” consisting of Korg, Valkyrie, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Jane Foster.
Meet The Team
While the new Love and Thunder teaser trailer offers a fresh look at the members of Thor’s latest team in action, showcasing Korg’s and Thor’s friendship and Valkyrie’s love of battle, the new posters reveal some of Thor’s teammates as well as Christian Bale’s Gorr, Russell Crowe’s Zeus and Thor’s two goats, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder.
While scenes featuring Gorr remain deeply chilling, the rest of the teaser promises much color and fun. Valkyrie can be seen reveling in a chance to return to the battlefield after adopting her kingly duties, while Korg is having a hard time distinguishing between Jane and Jodie Foster.

Interestingly, the teaser sees Thor list the Guardians of the Galaxy amongst the members of his team. While this may just be a product of trailer editing, allowing Marvel to showcase all the film’s heroes in the new teaser, it could suggest the Guardians’ role in the film will not be confined to its opening scenes, as previous trailers seem to have suggested. If Thor remains in touch with the Guardians, it would make sense that he would call on them for aid in the final battle against Gorr.
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.
