Synopsis for Thor: Love and Thunder

“Thor: Love and Thunder” finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — a quest for inner peace. But his 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.

Podcast Transcript

Anthony: I guess I’ll start this because, on our last review, we were both insanely excited for Thor. Coming off Dr. Strange, we were like: “Okay, Love and Thunder, it’s in the bag. We don’t have to worry about it. It’s going to be, minimum, as good as Thor: Ragnarok.” And, my god man. We didn’t record this as rapidly as I thought we were going to and I’m kinda happy we didn’t because I feel like I needed a couple of days to process. I guess my disappointment….it’s very strange: I’ve never been this disappointed in a Marvel film because I’ve never been a huge, huge fan to feel disappointed. But I just thought this was going to be a sure-fire hit and be a good time. But I did not have a good time at all, and it was very disturbing to me.
