‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Is Set To Be a Full-Blown Romance

I mean, it’s in the title. Thor: Love and Thunder, according to Taika Waititi, is going to be a full-blown love story which sounds intriguing, to say the least.

Marvel Studios has tackled a lot of genres but romance hasn’t been one of the franchise’s focal points. There have been some great love stories in the franchise; Tony and Pepper, Steve and Peggy, Wanda and Vision. But that’s honestly about it. That’s why I think it was kind of surprising to everyone that Loki featured a controversial but undoubtedly riveting romance between Loki and Sylvie considering that Marvel doesn’t usually do romance. But it was a nice choice for Loki’s story considering that we’ve already had so many years of content with him, how were the writers going to give him a new motivation outside of wanting to backstab everyone in sight and try to become king? Let him fall in love. Brilliant!

And now it seems that Marvel Studios is ready to tackle the subject of love again with Thor: Love and Thunder which is already looking to be a real treat. Jane Foster will become Mighty Thor, Valkyrie is the ruler of Asgard, Thor is hanging out with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Lady Sif is back to reprise her role in a Marvel movie for the first time since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and Christian Bale is making his Marvel debut as Gorr the God Butcher. The pieces are in place for a great story but the question remains: where will the film’s love story lie?

I already predicted two years ago when Thor: Love and Thunder was announced that the film would probably feature a love triangle between Jane Foster, Thor, and Valkyrie. But now that we know Sif is going to be in the story as well, maybe even she will be added to the equation.

As of right now we know that Jane and Thor parted on somewhat bad terms. They “mutually dumped” one another, meaning they may not be in the mood for rekindling their romantic relationship. In steps Valkyrie whose feelings for Thor have been muted so far but she may have different feelings about Mighty Thor. And Jaimie Alexander has already proclaimed on her Instagram a while back that, considering Valkyrie is looking for a queen, she wants to be said queen. So, yes. There is bound to be lots of love and thunder in this movie and I’m very intrigued to see how Waititi handles a love story.

I can’t wait to eventually see the teaser.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

There’s a Secret Marvel Movie Coming Out Next Year!

If you haven’t noticed Marvel Studios is jam-packing a lot of content into our faces in the next few years. I’m talking Disney+ series and so many movies it’s almost hard to keep up and yet…I’m excited for all of it.

With the Black Widow release date announcement two days ago the Marvel Studios schedule shifted and new “official” dates were released for the franchise’s slate of upcoming movies leading all the way into 2023. In case you don’t know them, here are the movie dates for the officially announced films in 2021 and 2022.

July 9, 2021: Black Widow

September 3, 2021: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

November 5, 2021: The Eternals

Mighty Thor Should Wear Her Iconic Helmet

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently filming and while we won’t be getting the movie until next year it’s still fun to think about. One thing I’m really intrigued to see is Jane Foster’s return as Mighty Thor and how she will look in the film. There’s one accessory, however, that I feel is necessary for her character and that is her iconic helmet.

6 Things To Know About Jane Foster's Mighty Thor - CINEMABLEND

In the comics, Jane Foster, who has been diagnosed with cancer, comes across the hammer and she becomes Mighty Thor. No one knows that this lady version of Thor is Jane Foster, a fact perpetuated by the helmet that hides her appearance.

I think it will be essential to keep the helmet as a tool of the story as Foster secretly goes on missions as Mighty Thor only to later be revealed to be Jane, hence blowing Thor’s mind in a really funny way and thus impressing Valkyrie.

Now, I know, the MCU isn’t very keen on helmets. Thor wore his iconic helmet for maybe a minute long in one scene in Thor and the only other characters who have helmets are Iron Man, War Machine, and Pepper.

Plus, I just think she would look really cool and fierce wielding the hammer, kicking butt, and wearing this helmet. We’ll see what happens but overall, I’m excited.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Will Reportedly Appear in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

Vin Diesel is making his rounds for his new movie, Bloodshot, and during a recent interview he revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder. That totally makes sense considering that the last time we saw Thor he was hitching a ride with the Guardians at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Will they play a major role in the film? Unlikely. However, knowing they will be in the movie is exciting nonetheless.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

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.

Do you like the idea of Thor: Love and Thunder being a romantic comedy? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

Black Widow is the next Marvel movie to look forward to and it’s become pretty clear, the movie is going to be awesome. With footage displaying gritty action scenes that, according to those who saw it, feel like a crossover between Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Mission: Impossible, Scarlet Johannson is going to prove to everyone why she’s actually the coolest Original Avenger.
