New Love & Thunder Trailer Shows The Return Of Endgame’s Fat Thor

A brand new trailer for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder reveals a glimpse of Chris Hemsworth’s Fat Thor after Avengers: Endgame.

A new Thor: Love and Thunder trailer teases the return of Avengers: Endgame’s Fat Thor. Chris Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi reteam for the second time in the MCU for the God of Thunder’s fourth standalone film. Set after the events of the Infinity Saga, Thor: Love and Thunder will also see the return of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who becomes Mighty Thor.

Thor: Love and Thunder has a lot of moving pieces, such as the involvement of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the arrival of Mighty Thor, and the reign of King Valkyrie in New Asgard. Meanwhile, Christian Bale joins the MCU as Gorr the God Butcher as the narrative’s primary villain. At the center of Love and Thunder’s storytelling, however, remains Thor, who is going through a midlife crisis and trying to figure out what’s next for him after the Infinity Saga. Some may be surprised with his fresh look in Thor: Love and Thunder as he no longer carries the extra weight he gained after Thanos’ snap.

As the release date of the film nears, its marketing continues to ramp up, and as part of it, Marvel Entertainment has shared a brand new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder. The clip features a string of new scenes and even fresh dialogue from Bale’s Gorr. But arguably the biggest takeaway from the spot is the latest appearance of Fat Thor following Avengers: Endgame.

Waititi has been clear from the get-go that he had no interest in keeping Fat Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. On top of that, Hemsworth has said he’s the biggest and strongest he’s ever been playing the God of Thunder, so it is definitely the end of the line for Thor’s Endgame physique. Luckily, the film isn’t sweeping Fat Thor’s existence under the rug. As beloved as Avengers: Endgame was, Thor’s arc was one of the most divisive parts of the 2019 blockbuster as it mainly used the character for comedic purposes. As Love and Thunder shows Thor’s attempt to lose weight while also taking care of his PTSD, the new MCU film hopefully prevents any further cheapening of his struggles.

While the new trailer reveals no context for the appearance of Fat Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, chances are that it is a flashback sequence showing the God of Thunder’s adventures with the Guardians of the Galaxy. As seen at the end of Avengers: Endgame, the Asgardian Prince relegated ruling duties to Valkyrie while he jetted off with his cosmic friends. Sometime after that, they may have separated as Thor started his healing journey. Audiences will find out for themselves when Thor: Love and Thunder arrives in theaters.
