Thor is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new movie called Thor: Love and Thunder, which is his fourth solo movie.
It was one of the most anticipated movies that weren’t about the Avengers, and now you can go see it.
For those who haven’t seen it yet, Pocket-lint thought now would be a good time to break down what we know about Love and Thunder and explain how to catch up before you see it. We’ll also talk about when and where you can stream it after it’s out in theatres.
What About the Thor: Love and Thunder?
Thor: Love and Thunder take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when Hemsworth’s Asgardian god is trying to find himself again.
Thor meets his ex-girlfriend Jane while he is on this journey of self-discovery. Jane now has her own powers and has earned Mjolnir on her own.

The Guardians of the Galaxy, whose role hasn’t been made clear, Thor’s friend Korg, and the new King of Asgard, Valkyrie, are all on board.
But Thor’s quest for happiness isn’t the only thing going on. The hero will also have to fight the new villain Gorr The God Butcher.
Who Does Thor: Love and Thunder Star?
As was already said, Hemsworth will play Thor again. This will be his ninth time doing so in the MCU.
He will be working with Natalie Portman, who will play Jane Foster again for the first time in almost 10 years.
King Valkyrie will be played by Tessa Thompson again, and Korg will be voiced by Waititi.
Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper will reprise their roles as Peter Quill, Nebula, Drax, Mantis, Kraglin, Groot, and Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Russell Crowe is a new addition to the cast. He will play Zeus, while Christian Bale will play the bad guy Gorr.
Gorr and his daughter, Love, live in a desert where life is hard. Love dies no matter how much they pray to their god, Rapu. Gorr is drawn to Rapu’s lush realm by the call of the god-killing Necrosword. Gorr’s plight is cruelly ignored by Rapu, who then tries to strangle him.
The Necrosword then offers itself to Gorr, who uses it to kill Rapu and swears to kill all gods. Gorr gets the power to control shadows and make monsters, but he is cursed to die soon and becomes corrupted by the sword’s power.
After Gorr kills a few gods, Sif sends Thor a distress signal. Thor leaves the Guardians of the Galaxy and goes to find an injured Sif. Sif tells him that Gorr’s next target will be New Asgard. Thor’s ex-girlfriend, Dr. Jane Foster, has been told that she has stage four terminal cancer. When medical care doesn’t help, she goes to New Asgard in the hopes that Thor’s broken hammer, Mjolnir, will heal her.
Mjolnir reforges and bonds itself to Foster because Thor put a spell on it years ago to protect her that he didn’t know about. Thor gets to New Asgard right as Gorr starts his attack. Thor is surprised to see Foster using Mjolnir, but he joins forces with her, Valkyrie, and Korg to fight Gorr.
Gorr is stopped by the group, but he gets away and takes a few Asgardian children with him. He locks them up in the Shadow Realm.
Heimdall’s son Axl calls Thor and tells him that he has inherited his father’s skills. Thor then finds them. Thor wants to make an army of gods, so he and his friends go to Omnipotence City, a place where many gods live. Zeus, who is in charge of the gods, is afraid of Gorr. He doesn’t want to help because he thinks they can stay safe and hidden from Gorr in the City.
Zeus orders the group to be captured so that they don’t tell Gorr where the City is. During the fight that follows, Korg’s body is destroyed, but his face stays alive. Thor strikes Zeus with his thunderbolt, which Valkyrie snatches before they flee. As the trip goes on, Thor and Foster start dating again, and Foster tells Thor about her illness.
