Only a few days remain until ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘s theatre debut, and on July 8th, it will hit theatres. Marvel is known for keeping its projects well under wraps, but Thor 4 seemed to be even more guarded than usual.
Fans have been waiting for a long time for this movie, which has been in development since 2019. Its initial release date was set for November 2021, but delays caused by the COIVD-19 pandemic occurred. In the first 24 hours after the trailer’s release on the internet, it had over 209 million views. We have a clear appetite for everything Thor. Let’s look at all the ‘Love and Thunder‘ characters (and actors) that have been officially verified and those that have been reported.

Jane Foster/The Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman)- And at long last, Jane Foster is back. She declared Mjölnir a heavenly mantle for herself, no longer only as Thor’s ex.
King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson)- Valkyrie must adapt to life as a monarch after going from being a scrapper. Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, and Thompson have confirmed that this movie will, at long last, explore Valkyrie’s bisexuality.
Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale)- The latest bad guy intends to punish all gods for their disregard for human lives.
Korg (Taika Waititi) – The friendly, soft-spoken rock gladiator from Thor: Ragnarok.
Miek- The other gladiator who is closest to Korg.

Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder- The amazing goats from Thor’s world make their MCU debut.
Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)- Sif debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as one of The Warriors Three (Thor’s friends) in the first Thor film, although she hasn’t appeared in any subsequent Thor films.

The Thespians- A cast of actors performed Loki’s rendition of the previous film, Thor: The Dark World, at the start of Thor: Ragnarok. To reenact the events of Ragnarok, they have returned. Thespian versions of Hela (Sam Neill), Loki (Matt Damon), Thor (Luke Hemsworth), and (Melissa McCarthy).
Loki (Tom Hiddleston)- We are aware that a different version of Thor’s beloved brother is roaming between the histories and may appear, even if the Loki from Thor’s timeline is dead.
Lena Headey- On the internet, there are numerous rumours linking Headey to the film. No characters are currently associated with her because this would be her first appearance in the MCU. However, many believe she will be a divine Asgardian figure, possibly Hera, the wife of Zeus, or even Thor’s other incredible sister.
Captain Marvel (Brie Larson)- It is possible for Captain Marvel to appear since she is yet another space-traveling character. Additionally, there have been a number of speculations (and performers’ hints) that suggest Captain Marvel and Valkyrie may someday fall in love.
Gamora (Zoe Saldaña)- Despite the fact that Gamora passed away in Avengers: Infinity War, a time-displaced version of the character appeared in Avengers: Endgame. The Guardians of the Galaxy never accepted this Gamora as a member. Since we last spoke with her, perhaps her opinion of the group has changed.
Eitri (Peter Dinklage)- Long ago, the interstellar weapon maker created Mjölnir. Thor approached him to create Stormbreaker in the same way in Avengers: Infinity War. He might have helped to put the shattered hammer back together.
Khonshu- As another Egyptian god, Bast, has previously been established, the patron god of Moon Knight may be related.
Beta Ray Bill- Bill the Beta Ray This is a long shot, no doubt. However, as I explained in a previous piece, Marvel has left numerous hints that point to the appearance of the Stormbreaker wielder who is a fan favourite.
