Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be all kinds of crazy, with a whole bunch of characters showing up, but those who have stayed true to the franchise won’t be disappointed. Plus there’s guaranteed to be much hilarity and we have Taika Waititi to thank for that. The director came on board for Thor: Ragnarok and needless to say, he did a bang-up job turning things around for the heroic Asgardian. Now that the first teaser of Thor: Love and Thunder has been released officially, it is the right time to discuss the other characters who will appear in the film. With that being said, here’s a list of every Thor 4 character confirmed to return –
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Thor
Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is set to return for a thrilling new installment of the MCU this July – Thor: Love and Thunder. Since his appearance in Ragnarok, Thor has been through a lot: he was able to regain his eye because of Rocket Raccoon, got his hands on a formidable weapon with Stormbreaker, and got into depression after failing to prevent Thanos’ victory, but then found hope thanks to time travel.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Valkyrie
New Asgard’s reigning queen, Valkyrie, will make an appearance in the MCU in Thor: Love and Thunder. This time though, she won’t be a secondary character but the returning hero is starring on her own right alongside Coulson and Thor.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Jane Foster
Thor: Love and Thunder’s teaser highlighted that Jane Foster will once again become Mighty Thor in Marvel’s upcoming film. In the comics, when Odinson is deemed unworthy to wield Mjolnir, Jane becomes Mighty Thor instead of heeding Odin’s request to pass his mantle on to another worthy candidate. Now whether MCU would use a similar transformation or not for Jane Foster in Love and Thunder, is not clear yet.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Peter Quill
Chris Pratt is once again playing Star-Lord in the upcoming Marvel movie, Thor: Love and Thunder. Star-Lord and Thor have a (typically playful) history of competing with each other – and no wonder, given that the two are world leaders on a certain level thanks to their positions within the MCU. Their interactions in Avengers: Infinity War instantly sparked chatter about a potential team-up between them, which is why his appearance in the film is going to be very exciting.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Rocket Raccoon
Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy‘s epic quest will continue alongside Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. Rocket and Thor formed a valiant friendship during Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. It seems that Bradley Cooper will once again lend his voice as he has done for previous MCU appearances.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Gorr The God Butcher
A new addition is going to join the characters list of Thor: Love and Thunder. It is Gorr the God Butcher. This character is going to be portrayed or played by the former Batman actor, Christian Bale. How Thor: Love and Thunder would place this character in the current phase 4 is debatable, but we are sure Marvel will get him covered anyway.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Zeus
Another latest addition to the film would be Russel Crowe’s Zeus. This character made its appearance in the Marvel comics, just like Thor and Odin, and placed himself as the ultra-powerful being.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Groot
Even before the teaser hit the internet, it was Vin Diesel who revealed that Groot would return for Thor 4. With that being said, this character from the Guardians would make a significant appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor 4 Character Confirmed To Return: Drax The Destroyer
Another muscle-bound marvel is returning to the screen with Thor: Love and Thunder. Drax the Destroyer has appeared in many Marvel movies, including Avengers: Infinity War. He was also responsible for suggesting a fight between Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor as he didn’t want either of them leading the Guardians of the Galaxy moving forward. With that being said, it’d be Dave Bautista who is going to portray this character on screen.
Other Thor 4 Character Who Are Confirmed To Return
Apart from all the characters mentioned above, these are the others who are going to appear in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder:
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit the theaters on July 8th, 2022.
