We’ve been dissecting the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer ever since it dropped, but there’s still a bit more to this reveal. Marvel has shared the trailer on their official website alongside our first full synopsis for the upcoming film. What stands out is that it mostly highlights what was showcased in the trailer but also hints at how exactly Thor will end up crossing paths with Christian Bale‘s Gorr. It seems that his search for peace might face a quick end and hints that what we saw in the trailer might likely be most of the opening.
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who — to Thor’s surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.
