Taika Waititi narrates Thor: Love and Thunder trailer, which is a two-minute journey inside the next Marvel film. Watch it below.

"Kids, get your popcorn out," Waititi's Korg says. "He was no ordinary man, he was a God. After saving planet Earth for the 500th time, Thor set off on a new journey. He got in shape; he went from dad bod to God bod, and after all that, he reclaimed his title as the one and only Thor. Oh, spoke too soon."

The full-length trailer shows even more of Natalie Portman picking up the Thor hammer (and mantle) from Chris Hemsworth than the teaser released in April did. Thor himself is shocked to see her wielding his hammer and dressed as a superhero.

"What's it been, like three, four years?" she says.

"Eight years, seven months, and six days, give or take," he replies.

While there is a lot of fun to be had with that interaction, things turn serious quickly, as gods are being targeted

Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth film in the series, is based on Jason Aaron's version of the comics and sees Hemsworth's Thor on a mission to find his place in life after traveling back in time to stop Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers: Endgame. As he looks for purpose and travels around the galaxy, though, a new threat looms: Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) is looking to take out the gods.

A new team comes together to stop Gorr. This includes King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Korg. Meanwhile, other characters who appear in the film are Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Thor's rival; Sif (Jaimie Alexander), Thor's childhood best friend; Mantis (Pom Klementieff); Guardians of the Galaxy members Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel); Guardians ally Kraglin Obfonteri (Sean Gunn); Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum); and Zeus (Russell Crowe), the king of Olympians.

The cast also includes Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Jenny Morris, and Simon Russell Beale.

Waititi also returns as director of this latest installment (after helming Thor: Ragnarok in 2017), and he wrote the script with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson.

Thor: Love and Thunder is produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, from Marvel Studios. It opens in theaters on July 8.
