The first teaser of Thor: Love and Thunder dropped to surprise everyone with what to expect for the upcoming film and it focuses on the new journey of the titular character after everything he has been through since Endgame. More than his story, the movie is set to introduce the newest gods from the myths to ever arrive in the MCU, expanding the ever-rich history of the deities in the franchise.
Thor: Love and Thunder Offers Glimpse of the Greek Gods into the MCU
The teaser of Thor: Love and Thunder brings everyone to a whole new place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is Olympus, the mysterious location with floating buildings and islands in the skies, the home of the Greek gods in both the mythos and the comics finally coming into the big screens. Olympus can be found through a pocket dimension of Earth and is considered as one of the God Realms.
Later in the teaser, someone was shown to be holding a lightning bolt and then, there is Zeus, seemingly presenting himself to everyone on Olympus and while he hasn’t made a face reveal yet, Zeus is to be played by none other than Russell Crowe. Crowe has disclosed that he would be the god of the skies in the movie.
To date, the Greek gods will be the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the exploration of the Norse gods, to which Thor belongs to, and the Egyptian gods that are being currently introduced in Moon Knight.
Other than Zeus, no other god is confirmed to appear in the movie but they are expected to arrive in the same film. Other gods that could make their debut are Ares, the god of war who even became an Avenger in the comics; Athena, the goddess of wisdom; Aphrodite, the goddess of love; Hades, the god of the underworld; and Hercules, the god of heroes, who has been long rumored to appear in the movie.
Which Greek god do you think will join Zeus in an MCU debut in Thor: Love and Thunder?
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to premiere in theaters on July 8, 2022.
