As a filming of the highly anticipated Thor: love and thunder Still in Australia, some photos from the set have already made their way onto social media, prompting Marvel fans to do what they do best: speculate on the movie’s plot. The only things that have been confirmed are the inclusion of Natalie Portman as Jane, Christian Bale as Gorr The God Butcher, as well as a few other returning cast members.
At this time very little is known about the plot of the film, other than that Jane Foster becomes Mighty Thor from the comics. That said, when talking about other plot points in the movie, just because something happens in the comics does not indicate, in any way, that it will happen in the movies. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from guessing.
10 Asgardian theater
Again in Thor: Ragnarok And near the beginning of the film, fans were greeted with an Asgardian stage production that retells the events of Loki’s death in Thor: The Dark World. Matt Damon played Loki, Luke Hemsworth as Thor, and Sam Neill as Odin. Well, it looks like fans are probably getting another New Asgard production.
Reddit user, pirates and potions, posted a link to a still photo of the Thor: love and thunder set, which showed Sam Neill in the same clothes that Odin wore in Thor: Ragnarok. This has led fans to speculate that fans will be blessed with another Taika-directed play within a Taika-directed film.
9 No fatter Thor
The unofficial Marvel Studios Reddit posted one of the first photos from Sydney showing Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt together just before filming began. The last time fans saw Thor, he was a little bigger than fans had seen him before, as Chris Hemsworth donned a thick 50-pound suit to play Thor. Avengers Endgame.
However, it seems that Thor has returned to his usual physique as a Reddit user. AntwanJenkins12 notes that Chris Hemsworth is back in Thor form.
8 Thor / Star-Lord training sequence
As fans remember in Avengers: infinity war, The Guardians had told Quill that he had put on some weight, to which he replied that he was going to compromise and get a BowFlex and some dumbbells.
Reddit user Good sir suggests that since Thor is also in his usual physique, part of the opening montage of Thor: love and thunder It could be a workout with Star-Lord and Thor together at the gym. This seems like something director Taika Waititi would throw into the movie, but Marvel might be against the idea.
7 Runtime of love and thunder
As the ensemble cast of Thor: love and thunder grows, one thing fans knew all along was that Guardians of the Galaxy may appear when they brought Thor in at the end of Avengers Endgame.
With Star-Lord, Nebula, Kraglin, Mantis, and Drax appearing in the movie, the Reddit user, Mark Allan Russo suggests that the movie’s runtime could be longer than 2.5 hours to fit the stories of all these characters. This largely depends on where in the movie the Guardians would appear. Given that many of them have finished filming, it seems likely that they only play a small role. However, the movie could still be the same length as Endgame if that’s what the story needs.
6 Thunder strike
One of the first set photos to emerge saw Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt on set, with Thor sporting long hair, a shaved beard, and a red ’80s leather jacket. Reddit user NvNX-Men attributed this to searching for Thor comics in the 80s, suggesting that fans might be getting some clues for Thunder strike.
Eric Masterson was introduced as a supporting character before taking up Thor’s mantle and donning the red leather jacket to distinguish himself from the God of Thunder. If Thor is working with the Guardians, maybe they give him ‘Thunderstrike’ as a nickname.
5 Jump in time
It’s clear from the set photos that the characters sport a familiar but slightly altered appearance, with Star-Lord sporting a slightly longer beard, Nebula also looking slightly enhanced, and Thor back to his usual physique.
Reddit user, Jedi Master, suggests that there could be a time gap between Avengers Endgame Y Thor: love and thunder. Marvel movies generally run in real time (in most movie cases), so it seems fitting that Thor 4 could be set in 2026. Will Marvel include a longer time skip? Fans will have to wait and see.
4 Groot adult
Fans haven’t seen the grown-up Groot since the original. Guardians of the Galaxy, with Baby and then the teenage Groot taking his place until the end of Endgame. One of the photos from the set of Thor 4 includes a guy in gray pajamas, wearing the classic motion capture suit they often wear to film Rocket or Groot scenes.
Reddit user, Supertalias, theorize that fans could get a version between teenage and adult Groot in Thor 4. It would be great to see an adult version of the current Groot after not seeing him for 8 years.
3 Tooth grinder
In one of the first set photos to be released, fans can see a white horse / goat-like creature in the middle of the set. Reddit user, MoreFeet6278 has introduced the idea of it being Toothgnasher or Toothgrinder, which are two goats pulling Thor’s chariot in the comics.
Thor still has Stormbreaker at the end of Avengers Endgame, who has the power to summon the Bifrost. Since Thor can fly, why would he need two mythical goats to pull his chariot? This could easily be a cameo of the two creatures in a quick scene or they could play a bigger role.
two Natalie Portman
On a similar topic, just because Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder were goats in the comics, Taika could easily trade them for horses for the movie. It would seem like a more appropriate option in the MCU given that Asgardians rode horses in the previous Thor movies.
Reddit user, chantosjr, notes that Natalie Portman was previously seen participating in horse riding training, which invites the idea that Portman’s character’s horse could be a movie version of Toothgnasher or Toothgrinder.
One of the other photos from the set that were revealed The set shows Nebula and another blue alien on set. User ywingpilot4life suggests it could be a Kree. Now that the Kree have settled in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, it is not unlikely that one of them will appear alongside the Guardians in Thor 4.
Furthermore, the Skrulls made their way to Spider-Man: Far From Home so maybe Marvel is crossing over their alien species in other MCU movies.
