In the first reviews of Thor: Love and Thunder, there is also praise for Natalie Portman‘s performance as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor. Although there are still a couple of weeks to go before Thor: Love and Thunder hit theaters, just last Thursday Marvel Studios developed the premiere of the film in the United States. Thus, in parallel to the declarations of the red carpet and the photos of the cast, this Friday the first reactions to Thor: Love and Thunder began to circulate by critics who could already see the film.

Naturally, these comments do not go into detail about the proposal for Thor: Love and Thunder. However, their common points indicate that the fourth Thor film is a bet by Taika Waititi and that the director’s style of Jojo Rabbit would be fully present in his proposal. However, while for some critics Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) shine among the cast, some have objections to the rhythm and even maintain that it would not be at the level of Thor: Ragnarok.

All the while it seems that the presence of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” in the previews was not a simple marketing strategy and Love and Thunder would include a good dose of Guns N’ Roses.

Without further ado, below you can read some spoiler-free reactions to Thor: Love and Thunder.

Gizmodo’s Germain Lussier: “Thor: Love and Thunder are what I imagine living in the mind of Taika Waititi might be like. She’s wild, funny, and a little over the top in the middle, but in the end, it all comes together in a surprising, moving, and satisfying way. Lots of Guns N’ Roses too. Much”.

Insider’s Kirsten Acuna: “Wow!! Thor: Love and Thunder are great! The best entry in Phase 4 behind Shang-Chi and No Way Home. I laughed. I cried. Then I laughed and cried some more, in that order. Natalie Portman FINALLY gets her due. Dr. Jane Foster is more than worthy of being Mighty Thor.”

Variety’s Courtney Howard: “Thor: Love and Thunder have an appetite for destruction and laughter. It’s cool! Taika Waititi offers a subversive and irreverent show. Great story, stakes, and character building. Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, superb. Russell Crowe and Christian Bale slip easily into his world.”

Fandango’s Erik Davis: “Another classic Thor adventure! Thor: Love and Thunder is everything I wanted it to be. Big, colorful, and bizarre Guns N’ Roses-fueled battles with a hopelessly romantic story about discovering love in unexpected places. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are especially great. And Korg!

Uproxx’s Mike Ryan: “Thor: Love and Thunder is the best movie in the MCU, or any movie ever made because it has a direct reference to Cocktail (that part is no joke) and in my pantheon of references, those are the rules I set. A long time ago, so I must comply with them.”

Rachel Leishman of The Mary Sue: “Shit. Thor: Love and Thunder is the perfect blend of Taika at his best with comedy and a punch to the gut all rolled into one. I left this movie emotionally satisfied while sobbing and it was just perfect. We have a rock soundtrack from dad. In the words of my new favorite characters: AHH.”

Richard Nebens of The Direct: “Thor: Love and Thunder are predictably hilarious yet unexpectedly personal and heartfelt. The performances of Christian Bale and Natalie Portman shine as Waititi tells an emotional story. I think this may be my favorite Thor movie.”

Discussing Film’s Felicia: “Thor: Love and Thunder, welcome to the jungle of the MCU! Taika plays with the humor of Ragnarok, some work while others fail. When the story continues, it is electrifying. Portman rampages as Mighty Thor and everyone hails Thompson as King Valkyrie!”

BroBible’s Eric Italiano: “Thor: Love and Thunder is the funniest movie in the MCU. The jokes are excellent as is the cast that delivers them. Christian Bale is also terrifying as Gorr. But, the plot felt flat and without stakes. I’m not sure if this is a Thor issue or an MCU without a major villain. “

Simon Thompson of Forbes: “Thor: Love and Thunder is a vivid, vibrant blast that delivers. Hemsworth’s Thor remains a jewel in Marvel’s crown. Bale’s Gorr is a killer boogeyman that combines the absurd and the creepy. Portman’s Foster and Thompson’s Valkyrie are a top-tier pairing. Crowe’s Zeus is a *chef’s kiss*.”
