While the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be checking out the multiverse in Phase Four, Taika Waititi is maintaining points a little bit extra based for Thor: Love and Thunder. Waititi is back at the helm for the upcoming MCU follow up, this time around co-writing the script with Someone Great’s Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. The Oscar winner is also reprising his role of the God of Thunder’s Kronan gladiator good friend Korg together with fellow MCU veterinarians Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jaime Alexander as Sif, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and the whole Guardians of the Galaxy group.
Thor: Love and Thunder grabs at some point after the events of Avengers: Endgame as Thor returns in shape as well as embarks on space-faring journeys with the Guardians of the Galaxy, just to inevitably leave after wanting to take place a pursuit for inner peace and also relinquish the superhero video game. Thor discovers his goal bothered by the look of Gorr the God Butcher, that looks for to remove all gods, and also should hire his pals Valkyrie, Korg as well as Jane Foster, that has actually become the Mighty Thor. Thor: Love and Thunder looks to be picking up a number of plot threads from the MCU prior, there’s one that apparently won’t be present in the movie.
Following the incorrect flag introduction in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the multiverse ended up being a major factor in Phase Four of the MCU with Loki season 1’s reveal of the Sacred Timeline as well as subsequent branching off of it. The multiverse would consequently be checked out in Spider-Man: No Way Home, with both Tobey Maguire as well as Andrew Garfield reprising their beloved webslinging duties along with the villains from their particular franchise business, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness locating Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular sorcerer journeying through various universes with America Chavez. This string is expected to continue in following year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as Jonathan Majors stars as a Kang the Conqueror version of his Loki period 1 personality, with reported strategies to have him work as a major big negative for the MCU moving forward.
While Thor: Love and Thunder may not be dipping its toes right into the multiverse, it’s not the first title in MCU Phase Four to prevent this principle. Previous movie titles Black Widow, Shang-Chi as well as the Legend of the Ten Rings and also Eternals made no reference or tips of the multiverse nor have a large number of Disney+’s MCU programs, consisting of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye as well as Moon Knight, making it clear that while Marvel might aspire to dive into the multiverse, they also are taking it step by step with tasks they feel ideal fit the concept. Target markets can anticipate the “singular-verse” return of Hemsworth’s God of Thunder when Thor: Love and Thunder strikes cinemas on July 8.
