Thor: Love and Thunder Coming in theaters, Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth have sat down with Disney magazine twenty-three to talk about their upcoming movie. One of the topics that has been discussed in the interview has been the character of Gorr the Butcher of Gods who is brought to life by Christian Bale. The film's director, Taika Waititi, has explained that Gorr had a past in which he had been wronged by the gods and much of his motivation is revenge for these misdeeds.
Thor: Love and Thunder is estimated to be the most important film in the recent releases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production, starring Chris Hemsworth and directed by Taika Waititi, could connect different elements of the previous phases of the narrative with the current one. Even so, this might not imply a very long duration.
Starting this Monday, June 13, some cinema chains will comment on pre-sale tickets for Thor: Love and Thunder. Through this option, the length of the film has been revealed. In particular, the estimate is made from the record that AMC and Cineworld have offered. The fourth installment on the God of Thunder will last 1 hour and 59 minutes.
The duration of the film, according to the specialized portal Comic Book, places it as one of the shortest releases in recent years within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thor: Love and Thunder, is only positioned ahead of Ant-Man: and the Wasp, which lasted 1 hour and 58 minutes. Even so, the words of its director in relation to the film invite us to maintain expectations: "This film is the craziest thing I've ever done."
Thor: Love and Thunder is a strange breed within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the narratives of Iron Man and Captain America reached three productions, the God of Thunder will have a fourth. It is intuited that the production will be a kind of prelude to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. And it may also influence or leave some references related to other productions.
It is not yet clear if Chris Hemsworth will continue to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in subsequent productions. Thor: Love and Thunder will serve to introduce Mighty Thor, played by Natalie Portman in the role of Jane Foster. The film will be released on July 8.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen an explosion of content in recent years. The arrival of Disney Plus has meant that, on an annual basis, the traditional 2-3 Marvel movies become 6 or more UCM projects.
This is also applies to 2022. This year we have already had the premieres of Moon Knight, Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness and Ms. Marvel.
The next stop is Thor: Love and Thunder, the new film by Chris Hemsworth with Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) as director.
Another trend that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is following almost on tiptoe is the increasing length of its movies. Many of the feature films are around, or exceed, two and a half hours in length.
Interestingly, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness slightly broke that dynamic at only 2 hours and 6 minutes long. Thor: Love and Thunder could go a little further and be the shortest Marvel movie in almost five years.
According to Comicbook (via Koimoi), the Taika Waititi film will have a running time of 119 minutes, 1 hour and 59 minutes. If confirmed, Thor: Love and Thunder would be the shortest-running Marvel movie since the 2018 release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which lasted 1 hour and 58 minutes.
Accompanying Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder we find Natalie Portman, who will give life again to Jane Foster, called to become the Mighty Thor, adapting the arc of the Marvel comics.
We will also have Christian Bale as Gorr, the butcher of the Gods, who will act as the main villain of the film. Thor: Love and Thunder also features the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, with whom Odin's son departed at the end of Avengers Endgame.
Tessa Thompson will return to life as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander returns as Lady Sif, and Russell Crowe joins the MCU as Zeus.
Thor: Love and Thunder opens in theaters on July 8, 2022, and will be Marvel's highlight for the summer, although not the last production of the year for the House of Ideas. There will still be She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the I am Groot series and the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas special.
Thor: Love and Thunder has not been able to reach theaters "virgin". In the time we live, this is practically. There are always spoilers circulating online, unexpected updates, rumors, theories, and most of all, leaks. The last one has to do directly with the post-credit scenes of the new Marvel Studios movie directed by Taika Waititi. This is the description of the two scenes at the end of the film that we will soon see in theaters around the world.
As our fellow MCU Updates have exclusively reported, the two post-credits scenes of Thor: Love and Thunder will connect directly to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and the I Am Groot television series. The first scene, the important one from Marvel Studios, will lay the foundations for the next film of Phase 4 of the UCM in which we will see the generational change to Black Panther after the tragic goodbye of Chadwick Boseman. Once the credits have passed, right at the end of the film, we will see a preview of I Am Groot to look forward to the television series of the most adorable member of Guardians of the Galaxy.
This leak related to the Thor: Love and Thunder post-credits scenes makes a lot of sense. Obviously, Marvel Studios must be sowing the seed field of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. We've hardly seen anything about the Wakandan sequel, not even a measly trailer. It is logical that the new tape of the Asgardian god establishes in some way the arrival of the next blockbuster from the studio. What is more surprising is the announcement related to I Am Groot.
A little less than the theatrical release of Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth has spoken about Russell Crowe's sense of humor. In an interview with Disney, Thor: Love and Thunder star Chris Hemsworth has spoken about Russell Crowe's performance as Zeus, and it might surprise you.
Chris Hemsworth noted how Crowe "has a great sense of humor and did everything that (director) Taika (Waititi) asked of him on set with his performance".
All things considered, it's a pretty secondary series. It will have few episodes and will premiere on Disney+ in the purest Netflix style, with all the chapters at the same time. It is surprising that they give him so much presence in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Justin Lin, the filmmaker behind half of the Fast and Furious movies, will be in charge of another film franchise. And if it achieves the same success as in the Vin Diesel saga, anime fans are celebrating. As reported exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, the director is in talks to take charge of the "live action" adaptation of One Punch Man. This film is produced and orchestrated by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The hiring of Justin Lin comes weeks after the filmmaker's departure from Universal Pictures from the Fast and Furious 10 project. This tenth film took place in an unusual situation, in which the director voluntarily abandoned a shoot that was already in full production. . The director of One Punch Man is widely known in the world of Hollywood. He has directed five of the ten films in the car saga starring Vin Diesel. One of the greatest authors of the success of him.
One Punch Man was created in 2009. The anime character was born as a "web comic" and focuses on the life of a superhero named Saitama. This guy has the power to defeat any enemy with a single blow, since he has trained more than necessary. Saitama soon gets bored of this situation and only wants to find a bigger challenge or simply do the shopping on the days that there are sales and discounts. Following the quick success of the story, the artist and creator known as ONE left web comics for publisher Jump Next in 2012. ONE teamed up with artist Yusuke Murata and it all came together. First, manga; then anime, and then video games. He will now have a 'live action' movie with the director of Fast and Furious.
There is less than a month left for the highly anticipated premiere of 'Thor: Love and Thunder', the fourth installment of the saga of the god of thunder, and the hype of the fans is only increasing. Now, both the director, Taika Waititi, as well as Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, have appeared in an interview for Fandango in a video posted by one of their reporters, Erik Davis.
The three celebrities have spoken in particular about Gorr, the Butcher God, the villain of the film played by Christian Bale. Regarding the test passes that are being carried out, Waititi affirms that the character of Bale has been the one that has obtained the highest score of all the Marvel villains by those who have already seen the film.
Waititi hasn't been shy about praising Bale's Butcher God. The also director of 'Thor: Ragnarok' has stated that Gorr is "the most attractive villain they have ever had. He has also passed the tests above any other Marvel villain". Hemsworth, for his part, added that he is a "complex" character and with whom one can "empathize."
"Nuance, complexity, depth. Kind of a weirdness that I haven't seen on the page or with any kind of classic villain. The fact that you find yourself empathizing, or asking yourself the questions they ask, or the ideas they bring up. It's not just a standard kind of evil," explains the actor. "Sometimes you end up rooting for them," adds Thompson.
We really wanted to explore this idea of religion, belief, and what it means to put your faith in a higher power. And since Thor is essentially a god, what does it mean for him to represent these gods? Waititi asked.
You may not agree with the way he is doing it, but you understand why he has slumped and why he has gone this way. Hemsworth assured that Gorr's motivations will make Thor question whether he is right or wrong, but at the same time he will want to prevent the universe from being destroyed.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be released in theaters on July 8, a few days before the Avengers Campus opens at Disneyland Paris, a new area of the theme park with attractions based on Marvel superheroes.
The film has also been written by Waititi himself from a story by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. In addition to Hemsworth, Thompson and Bale, the cast includes Natalie Portman as Jane Foster (Mighty Thor), Chris Pratt as Starlord, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Dave Bautista as Drax, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket and Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot. Jaimie Alexander, Sam Neill, Matt Damon, Melissa McCarthy, Sean Gunn and Luke Hemsworth also appear.
On the other hand, Marvel Studios has published a new promotional trailer to announce the sale of tickets for the film. In the video we can see some scenes that we have already seen in the previous trailer, such as Valkyrie and Thor fighting against Gorr. However, we do get a brief extra second where Thor attacks Gorr and the stage changes from black and white to a light and lightning show.
And that's not all, Marvel has also released seven new posters featuring the characters of Thor, Jane Foster, Gorr, Korg, Valkyrie, Zeus. and even with Thor's mystical goats, as well as four exclusive posters for different film formats (IMAX, RealD 3D). All the individual posters have different characteristic elements and colours, with Gorr's being the darkest of all, of course.
In 2011, the first Thor movie was released, where the relationship between the God of Thunder and the scientist Jane Foster began. Then we saw them together again in Thor: The Dark World (2013), but in Avenger: Age of Ultron (2015) it seems that the relationship has already broken or at least they have distanced themselves quite a bit. Now Marvel will explain everything that has happened between them.
In a recent interview with D23 magazine, Chris Hemsworth comments that the movie Thor: Love and Thunder will have flashbacks that will explain everything that happened.
"Actually, there wasn't much evidence to say definitively: This is how they broke up. This is what happened. It was left open for interpretation, which was great because it allowed us to go on this fun journey: What was your relationship like when you were together? What was it like when they parted ways? Why did you break up? It's one of the funniest things the movie will show."
