From arrival Taika Waititi There are quite a few references to popular culture in the 70s, 80s and 90s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and in particular in the direction of the Thor films. Soundtrack, aesthetics and storytelling above all. Thor: Love and Thunder keep the same line.

We know it from the first moment in both trailers of the movie in which it is heard. sweet Child O Mine, the mythical theme of the eighties Guns n’ Roses. But there are also subtle references to other films. One of them is Matrixreleased in 1999, and a key element of popular science fiction culture.

There was a lot of talk about Thor: Love and Thunderespecially after the release of the second trailer. From playing Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) in the film and franchise to Gorr played by Christian Bale. Which, by the way, is finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Link to Matrix can be seen in one of the black and white sequences resembling Sin City (Frank Miller, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez). Thor can be seen looking deeply at his opponent and raising his hand in a “come here” gesture. An absolute tribute to the mythical scene in which Neo (Keanu Reeves) does the same at the subway entrance as he fights Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving).

In the same time, Matrixwith this type of gesture makes references to martial arts icons in the cinema, as it was Bruce Lee. We do not know the outcome of the battle between Thor and Gorr. Yes, the movie uses material from the comics. Thor: God of Thunderthen we know that it will be absolutely mythical.

Much more to know Thor: Love and Thunder, and we’re not sure there will be any progress before its release. It’s also unclear to us if this will be the last time we see Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder. But I’m sure it will be just as fun as the previous one.
