The last time we saw Thor, he was not in the best place. It was in Avengers: Endgame and the God of Thunder was having a hard time coping with the fact that he hadn’t gone for Thanos’s head, allowing the mad titan to snap his fingers – and snap half the universe out of existence.
Endgame-Thor was a depressed, pot-bellied, beer-drinking mope.
Well, he got his thunder back.
The Avengers saved the day and Thor took off with his new friends, the Guardians of the Galaxy. The next time we see him will be in the third Thor sequel, Love and Thunder, which is hoping to recapture the fun of Ragnarok by utilizing the same creative team, and some old friends.
Taiki Waititi is back on board as the writer and director, some of the Guardians, including Chris Pratt, will be along for the ride, and Natalie Portman is returning as Thor’s former love interest, Jane Foster, who will supposedly become Lady Thor, and help fight Christian Bale’s villain, Gorr the God Butcher, while yielding the hammer herself.
But who needs a hammer when you have guns?
Yesterday, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, shared a post on Instagram celebrating the fact that Thor: Love and Thunder had wrapped shooting. In his caption, he thanked the cast and crew and called the movie “batshit crazy off the wall funny.” And fans are definitely excited about the movie.
But all anyone is talking about is Hemsworth’s arms.

This Thor is definitely not the Thor from Endgame!
He has whipped himself back into shape and then some, perhaps spurred on by Starlord’s constant chirping, perhaps because Hemsworth is prepping his pythons for his next role, playing Hulk Hogan in the biopic. Regardless of the reason, Thor’s arms are enormous and threaten to overshadow his co-stars. They definitely make it hard to notice his partner in the photo, Thor’s director, Taiki Waititi. And these days Waititi is no stranger to provocative photos!
The movie may have wrapped but there’s still a long way to go before Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters in 2022. Hopefully, Hemsworth takes it easy over the next year. We don’t want his arms to explode!
