keys, secrets, theories and everything that the trailer for Taika Waititi’s new Marvel movie shows us

Marvel’s first preview for ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ arrived yesterday officially, giving fans the first official look at Taika Waititi’s upcoming film, after months of much anticipation, false leads and dates for his arrival. And while the teaser is short, it offers plenty to chew on, giving us a glimpse of Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) cosmic adventure months before its premiere.

At first glance, the trailer shows Guardians of the Galaxy, Natalie Portman transformed into the new Goddess of Thunder and everything that was more or less expected from what had been previously announced. Since we are still a few months away from the premiere, we can go calmly breaking down everything that has allowed us to see the first trailer of the filmalso starting with his music and return to heavy rock.

Love, thunder and Guns N’ Roses

Guns N Roses Sweet Child O Mine

Waititi’s influence on Thor, both in the movies and in character, injected fun and colour, as well as the iconic use of Led Zeppelin in Ragnarok, greatly changing the style of the saga, so it’s only fitting that the director continue with this style and now we heard the famous song, ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ (1988), the only number 1 single from Guns N’ Roses in the U.S. In his lyrics we hear phrases like “thunder and rain calmly pass me by”, something especially significant for Thor, since he is the God of these elements.

Jane

Since the song was written by lead Axl Rose as a love song for his future wife, we wanted to see the use of it in the trailer because it also reveals the return of Thor’s old love interest, Jane Foster, with what the use could indicate a resurgence of the two’s relationship, judging by the look Thor gives Foster as she wields Mjolnir, showing that his feelings for her have not faded and confirming that the plot is based on the comics by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, in which the new wielder worthy of the hammer is revealed.

Return to the Hard Rock aesthetic

Part of the success of the previous film was Waititi’s great idea of ​​combining Norse mythology with the aesthetics of heavy metal and hard rock of the 80s, which connects so well with the character’s world, and in this installment he plays with the same from the poster, an imitation of classic music cover poses of that music, running as the “mainstream” version of the retro rescue of similar ideas that made love letters to the world of the 80s ‘Kung Fury’ (2015) or ‘Deathgasm’ (2015)

Thor is unique among the current MCU lineup, to lead four different independent films and it seems that it will be the most personal to date. After the deaths of his parents, brother, sister, the Warriors Three, Heimdall, and the events of the snap, Thor has been left to rethink who he is. The depression and weight gain he faced in “Endgame” due to the guilt he felt for not killing Thanos haunted him for a while, but he seems to have found new motivation and purpose.

The God of Thunder looks like he’s ready to get back in shape with an intense workout regimenin which he wears a hat that says “The Strongest Avenger”, a direct nod to Ragnarok, when he tries to access a plane built by Tony Stark referring to himself as the Strongest Avenger, only to discover that the title belongs to Bruce Banner, a prank that left a scar on Thor’s ego.

StarThor New Look

Path

It looks like Thor is trying to copy Peter Quill’s look with a similar jacket, as Star-Lord rolls his eyes. Besides, the t-shirt is even more reminiscent of the one worn by Jack Burton (Kurt Russell, Quill’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy 2) in John Carpenter’s movie ‘Hit in Little China’, one of Waititi’s main references to reformulate the character.

Korg and the Flying Goats

Korg

The trailer also welcomes back Korg, the Waititi-voiced rock man, who steals scenes every time he appears. We also have another comic reference with a boat being pulled by two flying goats. In Marvel Comics and Norse mythology, Thor uses two flying goats to cross the skies, and it seems that Love and Thunder found a way to bring this strange detail to the MCU. Korg also sports a new gladiator costume, complete with a goat-shaped belt, which could be another nod to Thor’s animal companions.

Zeus

The kingdom of Asgard was destroyed in Ragnarok, but the trailer shows another unidentified golden kingdom where we have a brief glimpse of a figure in gold, wielding a thunderbolt, appears to be Russell Crowe, who has been confirmed to play the Greek god Zeus. The one that is missing in the trailer is Christian Bale, and his Gorr.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie seems very boring as the ruler of New Asgard, a job that requires her to get involved with a lot of bureaucracy, something poisonous for a warrior. We also get a glimpse of what appears to be Miek, Korg’s old associate, who apparently stayed on Earth to help run the Asgardian realm.

The adaptation of ‘Thor, God of Thunder’ (2013) by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic It seems that they have taken it seriously, not only have they played Heavy Metal music and the butcher, but they have also traced Ribic’s vignettes in an amazing way.

Hela smashed the hammer Mjolnir in ‘Thor at Ragnarok’, but Thor later forged a new weapon, the Stormbreaker axe, but instead of the intact version of Mjolnir, which Captain America wielded in ‘Endgame’, here, however, we see the original broken version of Mjolnirwhich appears to have been reassembled for Jane Foster to handle.

The Valhalla Theory

Valhalla2

Thor’s eye color problem has given rise to a crazy theory on the internet, that maintains that when we see Thor meditating under a tree, he opens his eyes and looks up at the sky, Thor would actually be arriving in Valhallathe Norse equivalent of heaven, where Asgard’s fiercest warriors lived out their afterlife upon leaving this plane of existence.
