Chris Hemsworth with Fans at Thor: Love and Thunder Premiere

On Thursday the 23rd of June 2022, the Red Carpet World Premiere for Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder, their most recent silver screen foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in May, took place in Hollywood.

The film, which sees Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and (director) Taika Waititi all reprise their roles as Thor Odinson, Jane Foster/Thor, (the now King) Valkyrie and Korg, respectively, face off against the god-butchering Gorr as he continues his rampage across the universe massacring gods for their indolence and hedonistic lifestyles (represented through the actions of gods like Falligar the Behemoth (whose corpse lies dormant in a comic-accurate recreation of a panel from Thor: God of Thunder #3 (December 2012) in the official teaser for the film) and Zeus (played by Russell Crowe) and the other gods and Celestials who reside in Omnipotence City). The film releases July 8th, 2022 exclusively in theatres. Read on for the details and tidbits revealed at the antecedent event.


  • Jamie Alexander confirms that she’ll reprise her role as Lady Sif from Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Loki, saying she didn’t have to train for this film unlike Loki and that “we’ll see why”, joking that it’s because “she’s naturally a badass”. She also said that it was “very nostalgic” and “great” to return to the Thor Quadrilogy.
  • Kieron L. Dyer confirms his role as Axl in Thor: Love and Thunder, saying it’s his first MCU film and that he filmed scenes on both digital and real-life sets.
  • Sean Gunn teases his role as Kraglin, saying that he’s “always growing”, and that he’s on “quite a journey”, which started in Guardians of the Galaxy and continued through to Thor: Love and Thunder, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.


  • Natalie Portman said she’s love to work with Brie Larson on an MCU project, mentioning how she’s a friend of Larson and loves the character of Captain Marvel.
  • Tessa Thompson teases her “Queen” in Thor: Love and Thunder, and says a crossover between Valkyrie and the Wakandans would be “fun”.
