Thor: Love and Thunder - Everything We Know So Far




After a long break, the spotlight is back on Thor. Chris Hemsworth’s Norse god has been an important part of the MCU for the past 5 years. His solo movies have received mixed reviews from critics but have still shown remarkable box office figures.


The original Thor movie made over $449 million worldwide, while its sequel was even more successful. However, we haven’t seen much of Thor since his appearance in Avengers: Endgame. In this article, we take a peek into everything we know about the new movie, Thor: Love and Thunder.


Who’s Directing?


The Russo brothers have been part of the MCU since its inception. Their work on The Winter Soldier, Civil War, and Infinity War has won them a place in the hearts of fans.


They are also known for directing the two-part Avengers: Endgame. Although they were initially not supposed to direct the next Thor movie, Kevin Feige confirmed that they were involved with the project. Since Feige is known as the creative head of the MCU and he knows what’s good for the franchise, we can expect the movie to be outstanding.


What Is The Release Date?


The release date of Thor: Love and Thunder were announced at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019. The movie will be released on November 5, 2021. This is a considerable delay from the original date of July 29, 2021, which was announced in early 2018. No official explanation for the delay has been given by Marvel so far.


Hopefully, the extra time will allow the Russo brothers to give us a better movie. We also have to take into account the production schedule. The movie is scheduled to start shooting in early 2020. This means that the movie has about 18 months to be completed. The longer production period gives the writers enough time to flesh out the script to perfection before starting the shooting.



Thor: Love and Thunder - Story Details


While the script is still being written, we can only guess what the story of the Thor movie will be like. Based on what we already know, we can make an educated guess that the story will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. This has been hinted at as well by Feige who said that the story would be a continuation of the last movie.


We can expect the movie to start with the arrival of the survivors on some alien planet. Given the Flash’s warning that they would find a way to undo the Snap, it is most likely that they will be in a parallel universe created by the Multiverse stones. Since the stones were brought to the past with the surviving Avengers, we can expect the stones to be the key to undoing the Snap.


Which Characters Are Returning?


The main cast from the previous films is likely to return in the next Thor movie. This includes Hemsworth as Thor, Blanchett as Hela, Zachary Levi as Fandral, and Ruffalo as Hulk. We can also expect the rest of the surviving Avengers to appear in the movie.


While Feige indicated that everyone is expected to return, it is very likely that there will only be cameos from Iron Man and Captain America. The big question is who else will appear in the next Thor movie. The makers of the movie have indicated that Jane Foster will be the new Thor.


Since Foster is a female scientist, she can serve as a role model for young women. We can also expect Natalie Portman to return as Foster. However, Foster’s transformation from Foster to Thor will be a significant plot point in the movie.

What Will Be New In The Movie?


The story will be an extension of the story of Avengers: Endgame, but the makers are expected to bring something new to the table. The addition of the Multiverse stones will introduce a new dimension to the story. The stones were introduced in the comics after a storyline titled “The Eternity Saga”.


Since the comics are now a part of the MCU, we can expect the stones to play a major role in the next Thor movie. Another MCU storyline that can be used in the next Thor movie is Secret Wars. The storyline had the world merge with different parallel worlds to form Battleworld.


It was a complicated storyline that was handled pretty well by Marvel. If the makers decide to go with Secret Wars, we will see a lot of characters and worlds appearing in the next Thor movie.


How To Watch Thor 3 Without Subscription?

If you have a subscription to any streaming service, you can watch the next Thor movie online. The movie will be available on all platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. It will also be available on Disney’s upcoming streaming platform. If you don’t have a subscription, it is better to wait for the movie to be released on DVD.


This will allow you to watch the movie without any interruptions from advertisements. It is also cheaper to buy a DVD than subscribe to a streaming service. If you are not sure whether you want to watch the movie or not, you can read the reviews. Reading the critical reviews will help you decide whether the movie is worth your time or not.


Conclusion


All in all, the next Thor movie is expected to be an exciting affair. Since it is a continuation of the last two movies, the conclusion of the story will be a satisfying one. We can expect plenty of action and drama as the surviving Avengers try to undo the Snap.


The addition of the Multiverse stones and the Secret Wars storyline will make the movie even more interesting. The fate of the universe and Thor’s love lie in the hands of the makers of the movie. We can expect the next Thor movie to be a great way to end the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it.
