Disney has announced that the latest Marvel Studios film, “Thor: Love And Thunder”, is coming to Disney+ on Thursday 8th September 2022, aka Disney+ Day, with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth sharing the news on social media.
In “Thor: Love and Thunder”, the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) is on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But Thor’s retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
The film has been directed by Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum.
On the same day, Disney will be releasing a new episode of “Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Thor: Love and Thunder”
