Thor’s Love and Thunder This is the third entry in Marvel’s Thor franchise in just over a year, following The Dark World and the standalone sequel Thor: Ragnarok. It sees the return of writer Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman and a host of new faces. Matching the tone of its predecessors, L & T is still lighthearted, with some dark moments here and there. It also maintains Marvel’s core values that we’ve come to expect from their movies: fun, family-friendly entertainment with strong female characters. But does this mean Thor has finally turned a corner?
The following are some important things you should know about Thor: Love and Thunder: Thor is the heir apparent to the throne of Asgard. Because he does not have Asgardian ancestry, he is considered a demi-god rather than a deity. He was taken in and raised as a member of the royal family by Odin, King of Asgard, and Frigga, Queen of Asgard.
In addition, he has a connection to Loki, who is Thor’s biological brother. As a result of Loki’s murder of Thor’s father, Odin, Thor abdicated his kingdom and fled Asgard in order to pursue a career as a superhero. But Hela, Thor’s sister, has set her sights on becoming Asgard, the dominant force in the cosmos, and she is willing to do everything to accomplish this objective. Thor and the Hulk decide to work together in order to stop Hela from destroying Asgard. Thor and the Hulk decide to work together in order to stop Hela from destroying Asgard.
The bridge is the only way to and from Asgard, so you have to use it if you want to be there. Unfortunately, Hela arrives, takes down the bridge, and destroys Asgard. Hela’s plan is revealed, and it’s terrible news for everyone in Asgard: Hela is Thor’s sister, and she wants to take over Asgard and have it rule the universe. She wants to do this by using Mjölnir, the hammer Thor holds dear. However, Mjölnir has an extraordinary power; it can destroy planets. Thor, Hulk, and the rest of Asgard’s heroes try to stop Hela and put an end to her plans.
But, it’s not enough. Hela is undaunted and uses Mjölnir to destroy Earth to get Thor to help her. The big battle is here, and things don’t end well for Hela. Where does this leave Thor? But it’s not enough. Thor and his fellow Avengers and X-Men come to save Earth from Hela’s wrath. Their group is too small, and Thor has to face off against Hela. Thor, Bruce Banner, and Tony Stark form a plan that ends with Hela being destroyed. However, Thor ends up being the one to destroy Mjölnir. Where does this leave him? He is left to pick up the pieces of what once were and try to bring back Asgar.
Thor: Love and Thunder is a funny, action-packed comic book movie that will bring the fun back to Thor and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is evident from the movie previews that it is one of the best movies to come. It’s a lighthearted movie with some profound moments and the right amount of heart. It’s also a return to form for Thor, who has been through quite a bit in his MCU timeline. We don’t know if this is the end of Thor’s story, but we are happy to be back in Asgard and see Thor, Hulk, Valkyrie, and other beloved heroes and villains again. The Love and Lightning of Thor after The Dark World and the standalone sequel Thor: Ragnarok is the third installment in Marvel’s Thor franchise to be released in a little over a year. Alongside a slew of new characters, it features the return of veteran creators, including writer Jason Aaron and illustrator Russell Dauterman.
Even though it follows in the same humorous footsteps of its forebears, L & T does have its share of serious moments here and there. It also upholds Marvel’s basic ideas, which are entertaining, family-friendly entertainment with strong female characters. These are things that we have come to anticipate from the films that Marvel produces. But does this indicate that Thor has finally made a turn for the better?
