A brand new Thor: Love and Thunder photo for Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated fourth Marvel Cinematic Universe installment has surfaced online, teasing one of the first interactions between Tessa Thompson’s King Valkyrie and Natalie Portman’s The Mighty Thor. The film is slated to hit the theaters on July 8.
In the photo, Valkyrie can be seen wearing her new costume while sitting beside Jane Foster in what looks like a throne room or an important council meeting. Judging by the expressions, they might be discussing a serious matter, while teasing the potential teamwork between the two heroes.

Thor: Love and Thunder sees the return of MCU alums Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who is now taking on the mantle of the Mighty Thor and will be wielding the iconic Mjolnir. Oscar-winner Christian Bale will also be making his return to the superhero genre as he signs on for the villainous role of Gorr the God Butcher.
“The fourth installment finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods,” says the synopsis. “To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

Thor: Love and Thunder is once again being directed by Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Someone Great), which will be the follow-up to Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.
