The teaser trailer for Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder has officially arrived and it looks incredible. Check it out:
Offering an insight into the fourth Thor film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we see the return of Chris Hemsworth's titular hero as he appears to be on a journey of self-discovery.
"I want to choose my own path, live in the moment," he says, as Guns N' Roses' Sweet Child O' Mine blasts in the background.
There's a lot to be excited about, not least because of the return of a number of fan favourites, including Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who is starring in the series for the first time since Thor: The Dark World.
As for the plot, director Taika Waititi previously said the movie, which is a direct sequel to Thor: Ragnarok, will adapt elements from Jason Aaron's run on the Mighty Thor comic book, which sees Jane take on the powers of the God of Thunder.
This is reflected at the end of the teaser, when we see her wielding the enchanted Mjolnir war hammer.
As outlined by Den of Geek, the issue with this is that Jane is still suffering from cancer, and every time she becomes Lady Thor she loses the benefits of her treatment.
Where the rest of the story will take us is yet to be seen, with details of the plot being kept firmly under wraps until the film drops later this year.
That being said, we now know a whole bunch of MCU legends will be returning alongside Thor and Jane, including the entire Guardians of the Galaxy crew, as well as Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.
Waititi also said in a previous interview that Love and Thunder 'makes Ragnarok seem like a really run of the mill, very safe film'.
All aboard the hype train.
Fans were quick to take to the comments section to express their excitement, with one writing: "The colour in this trailer is jaw-dropping. Both Raimi and Waititi are bringing their A game to phase 4."
Another said: "I have been so hyped for this movie Marvel has been really doing a great job with all of these films and series lately. We all really appreciate their hard work."
A third chimed in: "I loved Thor: Ragnarok, and how Waititi handled the film, can not wait to see what he has in-store for us. Also the song choice is lit."
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit cinemas on 8 July, 2022
