Even though Phase 4 of the MCU introduced a number of new heroes into the fold via Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals, the remaining OG Avengers still have a story to tell. For example, in July 2022, fans will finally revisit Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder in Thor: Love and Thunderalongside Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Taika Waititi’s Korg and Guardians of the Galaxy.
However, that’s not all. Although audiences know little about the actual plot of the fourth film, they know they expect more from director Taika Waititi’s unique visual and comedic style, as well as an expanded cast including Christian Bale as of Gorr the God Butcher and the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, which is expected. to become Mighty Thor.
Just what happens in Thor: Love and Thunder any fan guesses, but the movie’s toys and promotional materials also teased a new look for Thor; and now, as marketing is about to begin for this 2022 film, fans have just gotten the best look at the God of Thunder’s bold new sons.
Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Love and Thunder costume revealed
As part of the upcoming film’s new toy line, Marvel has unveiled a Titan Hero Series action figure of Thor for Thor: Love and Thunder, offering a full look at Chris Hemsworth’s wild new costume.
This blue and yellow color scheme is quite different from the Thunder God’s typically muted and desaturated colorful costumes. However, he still wields Stormbreaker, just like he was in Avengers: Infinity War and End of Game.
It’s also worth noting that the image on the figure’s packaging is slightly different from the figure itself in that the box shows Thor wearing his red cape. This supports earlier images of Thor that have been uploaded in previous weeks.
This same old image of Thor is also seen on the packaging for a Thor: Love and Thunder Stormbreaker toy.
This particular promo also offers a better look at the details of Thor’s new suit with his full-screen powers.
Where is Thor’s new helmet?
The fact that Thor got a new costume for his next movie is no surprise, since nearly every MCU hero gets one or more new looks before their next role. What’s surprising, however, is how different Thor’s new look is from his armor from the original 2011 film and even the natural, neutral tones of his costumes in his more recent films.
Yet these vibrant hues of blue and gold seem more in tune with Taika Waititi’s wildly colorful aesthetic of Thor: Ragnarok and probably the crazy events of this long-awaited movie.
The color and costume change might also be necessary since Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor costume resembles that of the original Thor design. Still, fans can’t help but notice that the blue and gold echoes that of Ikaris’ costume from Eternals, leading to speculation that there might be some sort of connection.
After all, love and thunder appears to be Marvel’s next movie set in space and the cosmos; and Eternals left audiences on a cliffhanger.
It’s also worth noting that these promo images don’t show Thor in a new helmet. However, a leaked poster that went live in January 2022 showed the God of Thunder sporting a dramatic blue and gold helmet that matched his new duds.
Perhaps future merchandise – or the film’s planned trailer – will show Thor’s completed costume in the coming weeks? Only time will tell.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
