From all of us The transformations that Marvel’s cinematic superheroes have received, none have been more dramatic – or hilarious – than Thor. After turning from an average godbrother in the 2011s Thor surly hammer wielding in 2013 Thor: The Dark Worldhe got a new attitude in Thor: Ragnarok in 2017 In the director’s chair Taika Waititihands, the mighty god of thunder not only got a new haircut, but also became a funny friend of the Avengers at work. He took a slightly sad turn in Avengers: Endgame (remember Thor Lebowski?), but with Thor: Love and Thunder he’s back – and once again in Waititi’s loving arms.
Waititi isn’t the only one back Love and Thunder. It also features Natalie Portman reprising her role as Jane Foster, who – in a move inspired by the storyline of fan-favorite Jason Aaron – becomes the new Thor. And that’s not Aaron’s only influence in the film. Christian Bale’s bad boy Gorr God Butcher is also the result of the writer’s work. Are we interested in you? Wondering what other comics might be relevant for release this week? Love and Thunder? Start reading here.
An epic dive into the lifespan of a god told across three time periods, Jason Aaron’s first Thor story was an incredibly audacious debut. Not only does he pose a threat from the seemingly unstoppable Gorr, but he also shows Thor transforming into a person he never thought he could be. (Note: there may be father issues here.) You’ll come to see an emotional and violent melodrama, but you’ll likely stay for the juicy work of Esad Ribic and Matt Wilson, who are great in so few superhero comics.
What will happen when the son of Odin is no longer worthy of the enchanted hammer of Mjolnir? Apparently, the hammer comes out and finds a new owner, which leads to the creation of a new Thor, as unlikely as it seems. Aaron’s smart and fun reboot has attracted an army of new fans, excited both by the mysterious new god of thunder – her true identity was a secret, which was a big part of the fun at the time – and by the delightful art of newcomer Russell Dauterman. . Few suspected that there was a tragedy at the heart of this story, but once it was revealed, it only added more poignancy.
The price of being Thor is high. But even after Jane Foster found out how hard it could be, Marvel wasn’t done with her yet. In this run, she finds herself in a position even less likely than the goddess of thunder: a ferryman to the dead. With bloody supervillains on the loose – say hello Daredevil, villain Bullseye – and some familiar and unfamiliar faces ready to help, Jane has a lot going on at a time when she might have expected to have a good rest (in peace). ).
While the version of the team that appears in the latest incarnation of the comic book franchise isn’t quite the one that director James Gunn made into a household name, this take on the Guardians has arguably been best seen in years. It covers the many genres and influences present in the DNA of the concept and science fiction superheroes in general. Also keep an eye out for new members of the team(s) in that particular roster. Not only can some of them become your new favorite characters, but at least one of them should be given attention for reasons that will become clear in the end. Love and Thunder.
What makes these three different releases, published more or less ten years apart, a good trio worth revisiting after Love and Thunder? The presence of another god who does not come from Asgard and who initially does not even like the society of Thor: Hercules, son of Zeus (Russell Crowe in Love and Thunder). He’s a great background for Odin’s beloved offspring, in part because they have so many things in common: self-confidence, stubbornness, and a love of sleeveless clothing. You really should get to know Hercules. After watching the movie, you will understand why.
