‘Thor’ trailer teases hero’s retirement and replacement

It seems like it in the first trailer for “Thor: Love and Thunder,” which teases the titular Avenger (Chris Hemsworth) going into retirement following his universe saving — and carbo-loading — events of “Endgame.”

“These hands were once used for battle, now they’re but humble tools for peace,” Thor says after he’s shown through the years growing from a boy to man. “I need to figure out exactly who I am.”

Instead of more epic battles for the Asgardian, it appears the fourth “Thor” installment will focus on the broken god finding himself once again — all while traveling space with the Guardians of the Galaxy as “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns N’ Roses plays.

“I’m going to choose my own path. Live in the moment. My superhero-ing days are over,” he says while walking away from the guardians as they prepare to fight an unseen enemy.

“Remember what I told you, if you ever feel lost just look into the eyes of the people that you love . . .Not me!” Star-Lord says as Thor loving gazes into his eyes. “What?! Just listening,” Thor goofily responds.

Fans last parted with a heavyset and binge-drinking Thor emotionally devastated by the believed deaths of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the known death of his parents, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and his own failure to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin) in “Infinity War.”

He leaves the settlement of New Asgard in Tønsberg, Norway under the rule of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and embarks on a mysterious interstellar adventure with the guardians.

She seems to be running the show just fine nowadays as a dapper-suited Valkyrie is shown in a boardroom with other leaders from around Earth in the new trailer.

The surprise twist mirrors a callback from that movie to when Thor fought the lost Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) on the planet Sakaar. It also resembles when Captain America (Chris Evans) unexpectedly summoned the weapon in “Endgame.”

“Thor: Love and Thunder” is in theaters on July 8.
