The fourth film in the “Thor” series was directed by Taika Waititi, who directed the well-received movie “Thor: Ragnarok”. The film follows “Avengers: Endgame”, ending with Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth), leaving after the fall of the kingdom of Asgard, leaving Earth with the Guardians of the Galaxy. The teaser begins with him being part of the group, with Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel reprising their roles. Previous MCU stars Tessa Thompson and Waititi herself – as rock fighter Korg – will also return in the film, but the trailer’s biggest moment comes in the final seconds, when Portman’s Jane Foster revealed as the new mighty Thor.
Set in Guns ‘N Roses’ “Sweet Child” O Mine, the trailer begins with Thor on a journey of self-discovery. humbling tools for peace,” he said as he set aside his new Stormbreaker hammer and watched the intergalactic sunset, “Now I need to find out exactly who I am.”
After losing weight and wearing a new outfit, Thor left the Guardians of the Galaxy to find his own path. He claims his superhero days are over and begins with Korg across the galaxy. The teaser shows glimpses of Thompson’s Valkyrie ruling New Asgard as its king, a lightning-wielding man who is likely Russell Crowe as the Greek god Zeus, and Thor on a Pirate ship kissing an unknown woman.
