The only original who won’t show up in this film, is none other than the villainous adopted brother of ‘Thor’, named ‘Loki’, as Tom Hiddleston is currently having his own special series on Disney Plus at the moment.

 

Storyline

‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ is as usual predicted to pick off from where it all ended during the ‘Avengers: Endgame’, in connection to the previous ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ movie, as it’s third volume will be up in 2023.

This one is an adaptation of the Marvel Comic authored by Jason Aaron, wherein the story revolves around the inability of God Odin to lift Thor’s most powerful hammer ‘Mjolnir’, after losing his physical strength, with Dr. Jane taking over Thor’s mantle and turning herself into the goddess of thunder, having special powers of her own this time, as she also battles with cancer for her human survival.
