One of the many Marvel Studios’ projects releasing this year is Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth entry into the Thor franchise and the second one from director Taika Waititi. Thor returns following the events of Avengers: Endgame where we last saw him jet off into space with the Guardians of The Galaxy. We recently got a good look at Thors all-new look from the upcoming film via some promotional artwork, and now it seems there’s a bit more to it with yet another look being unveiled.
Alongside Jane Fosters’ brand, the new look is Thor sporting a blue and gold armored look, however, this armor is a bit different than the one we previously saw. New artwork reveals Thor’s all-new gold and blue-winged helmet with a bird’s beak at the center. Along with the helmet, Thor is sporting golden armored sleeves for the god of thunder along with a bit more silver than we saw before.
Thor’s look in this film looks to be inspired by the battle armor he once donned in the comics, all the way back in 1987’s Thor #378. The armor was initially used by Thor following Hela placing a curse on the God of Thunder, rendering his bones to be as weak as glass and unable to heal as fast as he once was. There’s no indication that this will play any factor in Thor: Love and Thunder, and as of right now, it seems to be an homage to a look the character once sported.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set to hit theaters on July 8th, 2022
