The new trailer for Thor: Love & Thunder has arrived, giving us our first looks at Gorr the God Butcher, Zeus, and more. Marvel Studios released the trailer on Monday during the NBA Playoffs game and you can check it out below, along with the new poster.

The trailer offers our first full look at Christian Bale as Gorr, the antagonist who is out to kill all the gods. We also get a look at the moment Thor finds out Jane has laid claim to Mjolnir and their new dynamic, as well as Russell Crowe as Zeus who puts Thor in a (literally) revealing moment.

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Christian Bale, and Russell Crowe. Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, it releases on July 8th and is described as follows:

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
