Thor will use a new weapon in Thor: Love and Thunder as we can see in a new trailer for the film. One that also carries a certain mythological meaning. The preview also shows a little more of the plot of the film that opens this Friday, July 8, in theaters around the world. In this new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, called Army (Army), you can see several cuts of Thor using the lightning bolt of Zeus (Russell Crowe), and at one point he uses it to fight Gorr, the main villain of the series. the film is played by Christian Bale. He will not be the only one to use it, we can also see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) with him.
We first saw a Marvel version of Zeus, the mythological godfather of gods and men, in Venus #5, published in June 1949. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The rest of the preview for Thor: Love and Thunder show the efforts of the main character to gather an army to face the Butcher God who intends to kill all the gods left in the universe.
We’ll see a variety of weaponry in Thor: Love and Thunder
Throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, we can see Thor using different weapons related to thunder. He almost always used Mjolnir, which was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok by Hela (Cate Blanchett). Then during Avengers: Infinity War he got hold of the Stormbreaker hammer . Now Thor will be in front of his original hammer again, but in the hands of his ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who has become Mighty Thor, although we still don’t know the reasons. We’ll have to wait for the movie to find out. What is clear is that Mjolnir is rebuilt from its broken pieces of it.
Thor: Love and Thunder open this Friday, July 8 in theaters around the world. It is directed, again, by Taika Waititi, after the success of Thor: Ragnarok. He is also writing the script with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson.
