Natalie Portman is ripped as hell in the new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder

Right Here Right Now 19/04/2022

There are a lot of reasons people are hyped about the long-awaited first glimpse at Taika Waititi's upcoming 'Thor: Love and Thunder' movie. 

For one, the world can't get enough of all things Taika, that loveable Kiwi film-making rascal. Also, the Marvel fandom does not tend to welcome new additions to the MCU quietly.

But perhaps the most-talked-about element of the new trailer is Natalie Portman's appearance as Lady Thor, wielding the mighty hammer Mjolnir with her JACKED AS HELL arms. 

Portman plays Jane Foster, and she only appears in the last few seconds of the clip, but still has plenty of time to flex her hearty new biceps, much to the shock and awe of Chris Hemsworth's Thor. 

Portman's arms are so impressive, some fans have claimed they must be CGI - but that myth has been seemingly busted by photos of the actress in real life, with her mad gains still intact. 

Meanwhile, Hemsworth's Thor, who tells us in the voice-over he's on a journey of self-discovery with his superhero days behind us, has been compared to everything from a grandpa to a hipster who is "finally ready to settle and become a suburban dad". 

Taika Waititi couldn't help but get a cheeky gag in when he shared the trailer on Twitter, writing: "Here is the full length finished movie. Eat and enjoy." 

The actual full-length movie will be in Kiwi cinemas on July 7.
