Starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/ The Mighty Thor, Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher and Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, fans have been eagerly awaiting any news surrounding the Thor: Ragnarok sequel.
Social media users have since been sent into a frenzy over the first trailer for the upcoming Marvel film which is set for release in US and UK cinemas on 8 July.
Check it out:
Portman's physical transformation for the role of The Mighty Thor already had fans taken aback, but the trailer has given a glimpse of her in character for the very first time.
"Umm..why does Natalie Portman have bigger arms than me.The trailer of Thor: Love and Thunder is making me excited and forcing me to start hitting the gym again," one Twitter user wrote.
Another said: "JANE AS THE MIGHTY THOR IN THE THOR LOVE AND THUNDER TRAILER IM SCREAMING."
Another Marvel fan pointed out how positive it is to see a 'Lady Thor'. "I cannot BELIEVE we get Lady Thor in a movie, finally. The fact that the MCU's finally progressing with the comics (at least this much, anyway) is wild," they stated.

The film's cinematography has also wowed fans, with one noting how 'aesthetically pleasing' the shots are.
"Thor: Love and Thunder looks SO beautiful oh my god," another stated.
A third summarised: "Can I just say this is a perfect example of how you do a teaser trailer. You’re not getting a synopsis of the the entire film. But it perfectly gives you setting, and a vibe. That’s a trailer."
A YouTuber called the trailer's use of colour 'jaw-dropping'. "Both Raimi and Waititi are bringing their A game to phase 4," they said.

"You can bring out so many emotions in me from good music choice lol, this looks amazing," one fan wrote.

It's also cool that they used "Sweet Child of Mine" as the background music. And by the way, who's the girl at the end? Is that Jane Foster??? pic.twitter.com/5KRFKcea7t
