What is the plot of Thor 4?

The official synopsis for the film reads:

“The film takes Thor on a journey he has never felt before – a quest for self-discovery. But his retreat is interrupted by a galactic assassin named Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the annihilation of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer Mjolnir as the mighty Thor.

“Together they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the secret of the godslayer’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

The film is directed Taika Waititi returns to pilot the superhero tentpole after directing Ragnarok and winning an Oscar for his film Jojo Rabbit.

Who is in the cast of Love And Thunder?

Chris Hemsworth returns as the titular Thor, of course, but as the plot synopsis above suggests, he won’t be the only person wielding the power of Thor.

Definitely, with the Guns N’ Roses classic Sweet Child Of Mine.

It shows Thor getting back into shape and getting to know Jane again before realizing the threat the vengeful Gorr poses to him and many other gods.
