The picture, directed by Oscar winner Taika Waititi, stars Chris as well as a superb ensemble cast that includes Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman. Christian Bale makes his MCU debut in this flick. Thor: Love and Thunder from Marvel Studios will be released in India on July 7th in six languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. The film’s plot follows Thor, who goes on a trip unlike any he’s ever experienced – a quest for inner peace. Gorr the God Butcher, a cosmic murderer who desires the extermination of the gods, interrupts his retirement.

I can’t remember the last time all of Marvel’s A-list stars seemed genuinely pleased to be there. In Thor: Love and Thunder, however, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, and Russell Crowe beam like kids thrown headfirst into a vat of Tango Ice Blast. Portman, whose Jane Foster wields the Mighty Thor’s power here, flexes her biceps and lands dorky joke after dorky joke – two things that Hollywood demands are perpetually dainty and polite. Bale gets to crawl around on all fours wailing and hissing as the villain Gorr the God Butcher, with amber-hued snake pupils and a Skeletor-esque profile. Crowe, as Zeus, wears a miniskirt and has the most outrageous Greek accent you’ve ever heard.
These three actors are in their element, romping around a soundstage as if it were their personal playground. That’s probably because of who’s behind the camera here – Taika Waititi, who has become the shining example of how to navigate the mainstream without losing your soul since 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. He’s the only person who could persuade Bale to return to the superhero genre after Batman, and Portman to forgive the franchise that burned her so badly with her underwhelming performances in Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013).
Waititi may be a leading contender for “Hollywood’s busiest man,” but it’s impressive how little his output has been diluted by its near-terrifying volume. A Waititi production remains distinctly Waititi – a patchwork quilt of primary colours in which outsider figures and disappointed fathers joke their way through trauma. Love and Thunder, a sequel born entirely from Ragnarok’s adoring reception, is arguably the closest he’s ever come to autopilot – and yet it’s still such a delight, powered by goofy self-awareness and childlike imagination. It’s also a rare piece of Marvel output that remembers that the primary audience for these films should be children, not adults with YouTube channels.
It’s not as thematically tight as Ragnarok, which slipped in a fairly pointed critique of colonial narratives. And both of Waititi’s Marvel films suffer from the same problem: he’s been saddled with so much franchise baggage that it takes about 20 minutes to clean up before the fun can begin. The Guardians of the Galaxy make an appearance here, but in a contractually required way. In addition, the film has no idea what to make of Thor’s clumsily handled weight gain subplot in Avengers: Endgame.
It’s watchable and enjoyable, to be sure, but it lacks the narrative consistency of Waititi’s previous Thor film (as silly as Ragnarok was, it at least had clear character growth and a fresh new take) and it frequently feels like they’re grasping for a reason for this fourth Thor entry to exist.
