Is ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Going To Be a Romantic Comedy?

It was announced on Saturday that the fourth Thor film would be called Thor: Love and Thunder and would feature Natalie Portman as female Thor. Tessa Thompson revealed that Valkyrie’s ready to find a queen. On Sunday I had an epiphany. Thor: Love and Thunder is writing itself as a romantic comedy. Think about it.

Taika Waititi likes to subvert movie genres into a superhero format. Thor: Ragnarok was practically a buddy comedy and for Thor: Love and Thunder Taika Waititi has totally set up a love triangle, hence it will most likely be a romantic comedy wrapped around a superhero story.

Thor totally digs both of these powerful women, Valkyrie kind of likes Thor but more as a friend than anything but she may be impressed by the new and improved Jane, and Jane, well, she already dumped Thor so who knows how she feels about him.

All in all, Taika Waititi is going to make another zany superhero film that’s certain to please the masses and I’m definitely intrigued.

  1. Being honest here. I don’t get Natalie Portman as a female Thor. Personal opinion is that they are pushing a narrative to appeal to those wanting more of a female presence in the Marvel Universe, and Valkyrie as a LGBQT character also. Personally I do not mind a female Thor, but I would have chosen a different actress. A missed opportunity to introduce a new actress to the universe.
    I do not have an issue with the sexual preference of Valkyrie either. But I do take exception when the studio is promoting it as the main reasons to see the film.

    Just the thoughts of an old white guy.

    1. Yeah…it was a bit surprising to see that Natalie Portman was back in this way. I was excited about the news but I’m sure there are many other actresses who would be better in the role (seeing her holding the hammer was already a little offputting, if I’m being honest.)

      In terms of Valkyrie’s sexuality, I think she was bisexual in the comics so it was the prime opportunity to introduce an LGBQT superhero into the MCU. I think, however, it could’ve been handled better if they introduced a character who is immediately LGBQT (like America Chavez) instead of taking a character who’s been implied in the films to be straight only to reveal that she’s actually into women as well.

      I applause Marvel for taking this diverse leap though.
