‘Sanyasi’ Thor meditating on a mountaintop in Love and Thunder teaser is giving fans Lord Shiva vibes. 

In the first teaser for the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder we see Thor meditating on an alien planet, looking an awful lot like Lord Shiva from the back. 

Star Chris Hemsworth described in a tweet as ‘big, loud, crazy and full of heart’. The film will be released in theatres on July 8. 

The one-and-a-half minute teaser reveals Thor’s journey to find inner peace, as he vows to give up his superheroic ways.  

As the Guns N’ Roses song Sweet Child O’ Mine plays in the background, we see a shot of Thor, meditating on an alien planet, looking an awful lot like Lord Shiva from the back. 

He says “I need to figure out exactly who I am,” he says, as he opens his eyes. “I want to choose my own path, live in the moment. 

My superheroing days are over.” The flashy 80s-style title cards on the screen read, “Not every God has a plan.” 

Sharing screenshots of the mountain-top meditation sequence, one person wrote in a tweet, “Looks like Thor goes meditating like a Sadhu "

Another fan commented, “Thor went to Himalayas to get away from Moh Maya and take the path of sadhu life and became a sanyasi.” 

Other fans drew comparisons to a scene at the end of Stars Wars: TLJ, in which Luke Skywalker meditates in front of two suns, just like Thor in this movie.
