Los Angeles, June 24 - Marvel Studios' Thor Love and Thunder
has had its world premiere on Thursday, and the first reactions are in. The official critics' reviews will not be out before July 5, so this is the first glimpse of what audiences are saying.
"Thor 4" reunites director Taika Waititi with Chris Hemsworth aka Thor. Natalie Portman's Jane Foster returns to the franchise for the first time since "Thor: The Dark World" (2013) and this time around will wield the power of Thor as Mighty Thor. It also stars Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and actors from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
Slated to release on July 7 (India), "Thor Love and Thunder" is set after the events of "Avengers: Endgame" (2019). In the movie, Thor attempts to find inner peace but must return to action and recruit Valkyrie, Korg, and Jane Foster—who has become the Mighty Thor - to stop Gorr the God Butcher from eliminating all gods.
