Yes, we are still waiting for a fourth Thor movie since premiered Avengers: Endgame. Thor 4 is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and based on the Marvel Comics character Thor. Its name is confirmed as ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ and also it will be the 29th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This movie is going to be Thor’s fourth solo movie after Thor: Ragnarok. Ragnarok came in 2017 and this movie was a great action comedy thriller. All of us fans hope that the Thor 4 movie is even better and gives a lot of joy to all of us. But before we talk about the Thor: Love and Thunder delays, we can at least confirm that it is shaping up to be the big MCU crossover event in Phase 4. The special thing is it also marks the first time a Marvel hero will have four standalone films.
Thor is the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Captain America is old and Iron Man dies, he is the only Marvel’s fans most loved character left.
Thor: Love and Thunder release date
When Phase 4 plans were first announced, Thor: Love and Thunder movie was set to be released on November 5, 2021.
However, with the Black Widow movie being delayed, all MCU’s Phase 4 movies were pushed back one release slot. So ‘Love and Tunder’ movie was also moved back to February 18, 2022. But then we got some good news. That is its release was moved forward a week to February 11, 2022.
But unfortunately, it was shifted again to May 6, 2022, and once more to July 8, 2022. Accordingly, this movie is currently expected to release on July 8, 2022.
The reason behind changing the release dates several times has not been confirmed. However, all we can do is hope that this will be the final shift for this movie.
In fact, Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor Odinson. But more interestingly thing Natalie Portman has come back as Jane Foster. However she is not the ordinary Jane, she’s going to be Mighty Thor. Yeah, she will be handling Mjolnir’s power.
At the end of the “Avengers: Endgame” movie, Thor is seen in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy team. With that ending, Tessa Thompson is also coming back as Valkyrie in Thor 4 movie with her new role as the leader of New Asgard.
And also there is another special thing to say about Valkyrie. That is, Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, has confirmed that Valkyrie is MCU’s first open LGBTQ + superhero.
In addition, Taika Waititi will join as Korg from Ragnarok, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, and the Guardians of the Galaxy team will reprise their usual roles.
New to the cast is Russell Crowe in a cameo as Zeus. And singer Jenny Morris will be cast in an unconfirmed role.
Will Guardians of the Galaxy appear in This movie?
Marvel studio has confirmed that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will star in this movie. So we can assume that the entire Guardians of the Galaxy Group can appear in this film. And, if you remember, the last time Thor was seen in the post-credit scene of Avengers: Endgame was when he was traveling with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Therefore, most probably beginning with this movie, he would be with Guardians.
The Villain of ”Love and Thunder”
A dangerous villain is very important to make a superhero movie super hit and interesting. Accordingly, Gorr the God Butcher is going to be the villain in Thor 4. Christian Bale is playing this role in the fourth movie. Feige confirmed in December 2020 Christian will star in the role of Gorr the God Butcher.
Is Loki in Thor 4?
The thing I’m going to tell you can be very sad news for Loki’s fans. The presence of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in this film has yet to be verified. And also Lady Loki also has very little chance of appearing in this movie.
Love and Thunder plot: What will Thor 4 be about?
With the arrival of Mighty Thor on the MCU, Waititi who is the director of ‘Love and Thunder’ (and also he plays the role of Korg) revealed that he was inspired by the ‘The Mighty Thor’, a Marvel comics series created by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman for this movie.
Portman appeared to confirm that Jane’s cancer story, which is portrayed in the comics, will be the same in the film.
Waititi jokes that we should expect a love affair between Thor and Jane. The film will also explore the background of fans’ favorite Korg.
Other than that, Thompson said Asgard would be rebuilt under Valkyrie’s leadership.
James Gunn has confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will take place after the Thor: Love and Thunder movie. Accordingly, Will Thor eventually leave Guardians with this film?
Hemsworth reveals nothing about the actual plot of the film. “It is one of the best screenplays I’ve read in years” ‘Hemsworth says.
When will the trailer for Thor 4 arrive?
With the movie not out until summer 2022, it’s likely we won’t see any footage for a long while. Sorry about that.
However, we hope that Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on July 8, 2022
