Special guest Bryan Young (/Film, Full of Sith) rainbow bridges their way to the show this week to help us stormbreak new ground on Thor: Love and Thunder, the 29th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and fourth Thor film (amazingly). Chris Hemsworth is still Thor, no surprise there, but we do see the return of some other familiar faces — Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Taika Waititi as Korg, and Jane Foster as…the Mighty Thor?! Plus some new faces include Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher and Russel Crowe as Zeus. Is Love and Thunder as good or better than Thor: Ragnarok? Let’s find out. We open the show with some general thoughts on the MCU’s Phase 4, then dive right into the spoiler-free movie review. Then we of course play the Rotten Tomatoes game and do a quick spoiler-filled section at the very end. It’s…thundering time? Hammer time? Eat our hammers.

Synopsis for Thor: Love and Thunder
ONE IS NOT THE ONLY. After his retirement is interrupted by Gorr the God Butcher, a galactic killer who seeks the extinction of the gods, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who now inexplicably wields 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. [Source: Letterboxd]
