With Thor: Love and Thunder slated to arrive in theaters on July 8, it’s time for another glimpse into the upcoming MCU movie. It’s great that Marvel Studios got the first to see Christian Bale’s Gorr God Butcher, among other things, with the latest Thor 4 trailer.

There’s a lot going on in the official Thor 4 trailer, so you’re probably missing some pretty important moments, locations, and Easter eggs within the two-minute run time. Since this is a Marvel Phase 4 project after all, there are plenty of MCU and comic book references that Marvel Studios could put into teasers and final cuts of the movie.

Needless to say, you’ll want to see the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder before you continue reading. Let’s take a closer look at the teaser to illustrate a moment you may have missed the first time you watched it. So it’s best to check the trailer first. Because everything we discuss below doesn’t make sense without you.

When you’re ready, here are eight things you might have missed in the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer.

1. Thor’s New House Revealed

Remember when you saw Thor meditate under a giant tree in the first teaser trailer for the Marvel movie? There has been a lot of speculation online about where the Norse gods built their base after Avengers: Endgame.

Well, the official trailer for the superhero movie has confirmed where he will be based: Indigarr.

The name will be immediately recognizable by fans of Marvel comics. Indiegar is the desert world that debuted in Thor: God of Thunder #1 in November 2012, and is the first issue in author Jason Aaron’s iconic cartoon series featuring Norse gods. And Pick a fresh butcher.

Why is this important? Aside from the fact that Gorr is the main villain in Thor: Love and Thunder, the film directed by Taika Waititi was heavily inspired by Aaron’s Thor comics. Since Aaron’s series had the biggest impact on Thor 4’s development, it’s not surprising that Indigarr is functioning to some degree.

How do you know that Indigar is the planet Thor has moved to to find inner peace? First of all, at the 0:03 mark in the trailer, you can see the huge tree he meditates on in the background. Just then, Korg is telling the natives of Indigarr about Thor’s space pirate adventures. Oh, and the alien race Korg is talking about was dressed in blue-skinned similar to the alien race inhabiting Indigarr in the cartoon. So Thor must seek exile himself as Indigar in Thor: Love and Thunder.

2. Drax’s Invisibility Skill Failed – Again

Shortly after the trailer starts, we see Thor use a Stormbreaker to summon lightning and get his new blue and gold armor outfit. Well, we’re assuming this is how he gets a new thread as he’ll likely wear a Ravagers suit in the early part of the movie. At the 0:16 mark in the trailer, you can see him making a costume change from the Ravagers outfit to the new outfit. So obviously this is how he changes his wardrobe.

But if you look in the lower right corner, you can see Dave Bautista’s Drax watching from the shadows. We know this is Drax. Later in the trailer (marked 1:41), you can see him holding the same weapon he is holding at the 0:09 mark in the teaser.

Your invisibility skills (read: moving slowly except you don’t move slowly at all) may have worked (or rather didn’t) in Avengers: Infinity War, Guardians of Drax. But you cannot hide from us.

3. Dreams, dreams, dreams

Will we see Thor suffering from dreams, fantasies and nightmares about Mjölnir in Love and Thunder? We certainly think so. And here’s why.

Around 0:23 we see Thor fight an unknown enemy before seeing the re-illuminated Mjölnir appear in front of him. Thor stretches out his hand to grab it, but moves away before it falls into the hands of Jane Foster/Mighty Thor.

But when Korg ends the Thor space pirate story, we see the god of thunder in his new costume. The elaborate helmet is complete and it looks like he says “Jane!?” to his astonishment. when the pair reunite.

These two scenes are interesting because Thor is wearing his clothes. old While Mjolnir was wearing a costume when he approached him, he was wearing a new suit when he actually met Jane. If Thor a) wields a stormbreaker and b) retires and then updates his appearance to help the Guardians and Indigar residents at the beginning of the film, why would Thor wear his old suit?

our view? Thor dreams of fighting enemies and seeing Mjölnir repaired. Jane is now the god of Asgard who can wield Thor’s old hammer. That’s why Thor is wearing new clothes, except that it’s not a dream and that this event actually appears later in the movie.

This isn’t the first time Thor has had a dream/vision for the future. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor uses the waters of sight to revisit the nightmares the Scarlet Witch placed on his head, including the destruction of Asgard and the birth of the Arcane. Can Thor’s multi-day meditation bear fruit, allowing him to fantasize about a future without water of sight? It will be a way to prove our theory is correct, so we are sticking with it. Well, until the movie comes out.

4. Another trailer, see another Living Tribunal

Yes, the Living Tribunal (a statue of the Almighty anyway) Other Appeared in Marvel Productions.

We’ve seen the Living Tribunal’s Easter Egg statuette previously in Loki and Doctor Strange 2, and before the cameo was removed, a powerful space humanoid was also due to appear in Avengers: Endgame.

But now it is the third MCU appearance in Thor 4. Skip to the 0:44 mark in the trailer and you’ll see a monument to the Living Tribunal in the background while Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor performs lightning. Infused superhero landing. If we keep up with these Easter Egg cameos, we’ll soon see Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and Benedict Wong’s Wong make ‘most MCU appearances’…

5. Has the end date of Thor and Jane’s relationship been revealed?

We’re not sure when the pair actually broke up, but it looks like the official trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder (and the movie itself) may provide the answer.

When Jane asked Thor how long it had been since they last had a conversation, he humorously said “8 years, 7 months and 6 days,” bluntly. It sounds like a funny and one-off line at first, but it can give you an idea of ​​when Thor and Jane’s relationship actually ended.

Thor: The Dark World – Natalie Portman’s last Marvel movie starring Jane came out in 2013. That said, it’s been nine years since the release of Thor’s second solo film. At least in our world.

But in the MCU, there was a notable time jump between Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. There was a cosmic gap of five years between the 3rd and 4th Avengers films after Thanos wiped out half of the MCU’s entire life (aka blips). In other words, Endgame started in 2023.

MCU timelines are all relative at this point. We still don’t know where some movies and TV shows will sit on the main Marvel timeline, thanks to Endgame’s events and the non-linear approach Marvel is taking on their Phase 4 project. . But assuming Thor 4 is set right after Endgame, that means it sets the year 2023. As Thor said, if we go back eight years and seven months, it’s 2015.

Given that Jane Foster didn’t appear in Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, Thor references the fact that when she broke up with Jane it was “mutual dumping.” We could be completely wrong. Marvel Studios has committed MCU continuity errors in the past. We’re looking at the “eight years” moment of Spider-Man: Homecoming. So Jane and Thor may not have parted in 2015. Still, we want to think about this. It’s a time they did for our sanity.

6. Gorr Origin Conversion

In Thor: Love and Thunder, Gorr takes off his hood in an unknown location.

As mentioned in the introduction, this trailer is where we finally get to officially see Christian Bale’s Gorr God Butcher for the first time. However, his origin story had to be tweaked a bit for Thor 4 given that he has something to do with Spider-Man.

how? Well, in the comics, Gorr accidentally gains his ability and the weapon of his choice, the Necrosword, via Knull, who created the symbiote. As Spidey fans will know, Venom is a byproduct of one of these symbiotes attached to Eddie Brock. Marvel Studios has no rights to Spider-Man or any character in his universe. Because Sony Pictures owns the Marvel Comics IP.

The story of Gorr’s supervillain origins should change in the MCU movies, unless Marvel has secretly signed a contract with Sony to use Knull in Thor: Love and Thunder. According to the trailer, it looks like he’ll get his powers from a realm like some dark dimension in the MCU. Either way, don’t expect to translate his comic book journey yourself here.

7. Mjlnir’s Shotgun Spread

As Mjolnir appears to have been re-examined by Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor, many of us expected Thor’s previous weaponry to never be divisible.

The official trailer for the movie throws those thoughts out the window. At the 1:25 mark, we see different parts of Mjolnir change to a shotgun spread style weapon and Foster swinging his hammer at Zeus’ metal bodyguard before striking multiple enemies. It’s a move that will put a smile on the faces of all MCU fans and make them wonder what more Mjolnir can do in his new state. Expect more hammer-based surprises in the final film.

8. Pantheon Council Confirmed?

In Thor: Love and Thunder, Thor is tried in the Council of the Pantheon.

The trailer’s final scene is used to reveal Zeus’ glory by Russell Crowe. Oh, and to the Chris Hemsworth fans many More than they bargained for, well, Zeus accidentally strips Thor naked.

This moment is obviously played for laughs, but its Colosseum-sized location suggests we’ll be visiting the Pantheon Council for the first time in the MCU.

For beginners, the Council of the Pantheon is an intergovernmental organization of gods who meet regularly to maintain peace and the status quo throughout the Marvel universe. Gods from all walks of life, from Northern Europe, Egypt, and Greece, gather here to discuss their problems, vote on topics, and more.

We’ve already seen images showing how Thor: Love and Thunder connects with other gods and religious figures we’ve seen in Moon Knight and Black Panther. Add to that the fact that Gorr is seeking revenge on all the gods in the MCU, and Thor’s fourth solo film will introduce a place where all the gods can muster and discuss Gorr’s menace. Some (coughing Zeus) may not. I truly believe they are in danger.
