Thor: Love and Thunder: Marvel fans reckon hero could be gay

Marvel fans have been digging a particular moment in the newly released Thor: Love and Thunder trailer, wondering if it points to the God of Thunder exploring his sexuality.

In the 90-second teaser trailer that dropped yesterday, offering audiences the first official look at the July blockbuster, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is shown giving Chris Pratt’s character of Star-Lord, aka Peter Quill, a lingering look that got many fans on Twitter hot under the collar about its meaning.

In the light moment, set up by irreverent director Taika Waititi, back at the helm once more following 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is shown talking with Star-Lord as the rest of the Guardians of The Galaxy look on.

Nebula (Karen Gillan), Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are all present and correct, following Thor’s decision to travel with them after giving up the throne of New Asgard in Avengers: Endgame.

Giving him a pep talk as Thor looks to ‘choose his own path’, Star-Lord tells the hero: ‘Remember what I told you: If you ever feel lost, just look into the eyes of the people that you love.’

It’s made clear that the Guardians’ leader is looking at his crew, slightly misty-eyed, as he delivers the line, but Thor moves his head to be in Star-Lord’s line of sight, as he smiles at him.

‘Not me,’ the outlaw clarifies, as he clocks Thor’s expression.

Thor then chuckles to himself and tries to brush it off, responding: ‘What? Just listening,’ before looking off into the distance. 

The awkwardly humorous exchange had fans delighting over the possibility of Thor being gay in the new movie, as they rushed to social media to share theories.

Directly referencing Thor ‘gazing in Peter’s eyes’, one asked: ‘Gays are we actually winning?’

Another joked: ‘Thor 4 looks like a gay romcom and I love it already.’

Thor no longer belongs to the boys. He’s for the girls, gays, and theys. He always has been but now it’s more obvious. Thank you, Taika Waititi~

Elsewhere in the teaser, fans were given their first glimpses of Russell Crowe as Zeus and Natalie Portman’s return as Jane Foster, who takes on the mantel of The Mighty Thor.

The actress has lifted the lid on how she got into epic shape for the role, as she discussed her ‘heavyweight training’.
