Moments ago, the exit doors of the El Captain Theater in Hollywood opened, and out came attendees of the worldwide premiere of Marvel Studio’s Thor : Love and Thunder.
First reactions from the film, opening July 8, are extremely positive with heavy praise for the film’s humour and uniqueness, as well for Christian Bale’s villain and Russell Crowe’s Zeus.
Here’s a few *non-spoiler* tweets!
Another classic Thor adventure! #ThorLoveAndThunder is everything I wanted it to be. Big, colorful, weird Guns N' Roses-fueled battles to go w/ a hopelessly romantic story about discovering love in unexpected places. Christian Bale & Russell Crowe are especially great. And Korg! pic.twitter.com/fu0gTUuMRj

What a rush! Thor: Love & Thunder is pure entertainment. It’s fun, emotional, it has moments of horror. Christian Bale is perfectly terrifying as Gorr. Natalie Portman is fantastic as the Mighty Thor. Chris Hemsworth is perfect. And the goats are GOATS. #thor #ThorLoveAndThunder pic.twitter.com/u9QhIPh0G9

#ThorLoveAndThunder is electric! A wacky, high energy delight with a cast full of aces crushing one scene after the next. LOADS of laughs (my face legit hurts), menace of Christian Bale’s Gorr is chilling, but most of all loved that it’s a film brimming with good vibes & heart. pic.twitter.com/CjVHkxAprC

#ThorLoveAndThunder is everything great about comic book movies! Truly hilarious insanity, heart wrenching tragedy, and bombastic action! Visually stunning and one of the best MCU soundtracks. The entire cast is fantastic, but Christian Bale and Natalie Portman are phenomenal! pic.twitter.com/dVkpf54fmP

#ThorLoveAndThunder has very high highs & very low lows. It’s very Taika Waititi and is tonally all over the place. That said, the second half is way better than the first and I really loved what Christian Bale brought to the table. Also, Natalie Portman is fantastic as expected. pic.twitter.com/NCCsDS7bj2

There was a lot that worked with #ThorLoveAndThunder Visually it looked great, Jane and Thor storyline is the best it’s been, Bale shines but unfortunately I thought the comedy overpowered the film. If you go in expecting a big comedy Iyou’ll enjoy. I was expecting a little more.

#ThorLoveAndThunder is a vivid and vibrant blast that delivers. Hemsworth’s Thor remains a jewel in Marvel’s crown. Bale’s Gorr is a killer boogeyman blending the campy and the creepy. Portman’s Foster and Thompson’s Valkyrie are a top notch pairing. Crowe’s Zeus is *chef’s kiss* pic.twitter.com/PDb5SZRWOo

#ThorLoveAndThunder has an Appetite For Destruction & laughs. It’s totally rad! Taika Waititi delivers a subversive, irreverent spectacle. Great story, stakes & character-building. Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman, superb.Russell Crowe & Christian Bale slip easily into the world pic.twitter.com/W7PUUXIfM5

Natalie Portman's performance in #ThorLoveAndThunder is exceptional. Also watching Dr. Jane Foster transform into this hero…it's what I want for all women on my screen. I want that complexity. And Portman and Taika Waititi helped bring that forward. You'll love her. Promise.❤️ pic.twitter.com/ElyXBZAeRk

I had a blast with #ThorLoveAndThunder! You could tell they gave Taika Watiti full creative control, which pays off in many ways. This is definitely one of the funnier Marvel films. Visually it is also one of the best-looking MCU films we’ve gotten recently. pic.twitter.com/P0vvfuov1n

Had such a great time with #ThorLoveandThunder. So much ridiculousness in the best way. The entire cast (cameos included) clearly had a blast making this, I hope some of the great surprises stay that way.

Listen if you loved Ragnarok, you’re going to love #ThorLoveAndThunder. Marvel really lets Taika Waititi go crazy with this movie. It’s the perfect blend of comedy, action and the good old MCU drama. I was laughing a good portion of this film. Also, Bale was great Gor. pic.twitter.com/w0bt4coSa7
