Behind Thor Love and Thunder, we once again find Taika Waititi who had already directed Thor: Ragnarok. The director had taken a 90° turn compared to his predecessor Kenneth Branagh. Indeed, Thor and Thor: The Dark World had turned out to be rather academic in their realization with a classic heroic-fantasy universe. Here, Taika Waititi reinvents the myth by giving it an identity that is both rock’n’roll and fun. This artistic divide can be seen perfectly on the posters of the various films, but also in the totally uninhibited trailers, film style of the 80s. Michael Giacchinowho has already shown himself in the MCU’s Spider-Man, Doctor Strange or even Coco.

The trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder quickly makes us understand the main issues of the film: questioning thor (and by extension that of Chris Hemsworth in the MCU). As said before, this trailer opens on a rock tone with Sweet Child of Mine from Guns N’ Roses. Marvel does not fail to recall the presence of the Guardians of the Galaxy in this new galactic adventure. We can also glimpse Valkyrie in her new role as ruler of Asgard on Earth.
