‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is expected to give fans some closure after the cliffhanger from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ when Thor rode away on the Guardians of the Galaxy’s ship. We will see the kingdom of Asgard, “or what’s left of it in the aftermath of Hela’s destruction”, and watch Thor find inner-peace before he is faced with a dangerous enemy.

Towards the end of the trailer, we see Jane Foster return after missing from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, but what makes this clip even more exciting is the shock on Thor’s face when a hand is seen reaching up to grab the Mjolnir, revealing that it is Jane Foster who is now wielding the hammer.

Being a month and a half away from its release to cinemas, there may be further news to look out for, such as more trailers or official pictures, so keep a look out for the latest updates!
