'Thor: Love And Thunder' puts the pedal to the (heavy) metal, again

Marvel's Thor: Love And Thunder follows in the footsteps of the much-loved Thor: Ragnarok.

Both are directed by Taika Waititi, and both offer a lighthearted take on the godlike superhero, played again by Chris Hemsworth.

The new film introduces Christian Bale as a villain named Gorr,

The God Butcher, and brings back Natalie Portman as Jane Foster

who now wields Thor's hammer.
