Thor: Love And Thunder has released in India amid fun fan anticipation.

The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson in lead roles.

The fourth instalment in the Thor franchise has been directed by  Oscar-winner Taika Waititi, who catapulted Thor to immense popularity  among the fans after the 2017 release Thor: Ragnarok.

This is for the first time since Avengers: Endgame (2019) Thor, played  by Chris Hemsworth, is taking the centre stage in the MCU.

After Thor: Ragnarok (2017), the popularity of the character has grown by leaps and bounds.

In the movie's trailer, it has been hinted that Thor has gone into  retirement of sorts while Natalie Portman as Mighty Thor takes the  reigns over at Asgard with Valkyrie (Tessa Thomson).

The most exciting addition to the cast, however, is Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.

Bale is returning to the superhero genre after playing Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy which culminated in 2012.

Now, with Bale joining the MCU, fans will have a lot more to look forward to in Thor: Love And Thunder.
