Merchandise for Thor: Love and Thunder teases New Asgard as a tourist destination.
Following the events of Thor: Ragnarok, Asgard as we know it was destroyed, leading to surviving Asgardians finding refuge on Earth in “New Asgard”. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) appoints Valkyrie as the head, which is a much smaller new village that, at least on the surface, doesn’t hold a candle to the grandeur of the original.
A new commodity for Thor: Love and Thunder gives us an idea of what to expect from New Asgard in the film. In particular, this merchandise is a mug that looks like one that might be purchased at a gift shop, featuring tours offered to guests visiting the Asgardian Refugees’ new home. This mug, which will be available for purchase on Entertainment Earth next month, is pictured below:
Although a trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder hasn’t dropped yet, fans will likely get their first look very soon, just in time before the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters in a few weeks. After all, it looks like Marvel Studios is making sure to do as much marketing as possible for its next tall mast before moving on to the next one. Either way, audiences will eventually go from the Multiverse of Madness to New Asgard within two months of each film’s release.
Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Jeff Goldblum. Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone and Russell Crowe are also on board.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to release on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Thor sequel leading up to its release, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
