Thor 4 - Love and Thunder

Can't wait to order four for Thor 4 at the ticket desk.

Or do we think it'll, like prior films, carry a subtitle. I'm hoping for Fantastic Thor myself.

EDIT: We have a new title: Thor: Love and Thunder. And Portman's back as Lady Thor, alongside the return of Thompson's Valkyrie.

I have a mild speech impediment and can't differentiate between the "f" sound and the "th" sound when speaking - so I'm not at all looking forward to discussing this film!

Luckily it won't be called Thor 4 but something like Thor: Electric Bugaloo.

Th4r

Could you imagine?

Surprised to hear this too! I wonder how, if at all, he may be involved with the Guardians moving forward too. Glad to see Marvel encouraging what clearly is a good relationship between Waititi and Hemsworth. Bring it! Can't wait!

This will also make Thor the longest running solo Marvel film series if you exclude reboots / recasts. Which is frankly absurd given the public's minimal recognition of the character prior to the release of Thor 1.

I think the only superhero film series to manage this achievement was the original Superman series with Christopher Reeve. Let's hope Thor 4 doesn't sink to the levels of The Quest for Peace

Natalie Portman retuning as Foster Thor, the news just keeps getting better! Wasn't expecting her to return.

Yeah, thought she was fed up with the franchise, so good to have her back. Also hope that means a return of Kat Dennigs' Darcey, who was one of the standouts of the first two movies.

Okay, lemme set a scene for you here bro.

You’re Natalie Portman. Can’t put a foot wrong... then you’re in that Scary Movie-like medieval movie. And then the two worst Marvel movies. Are you pissed? Damn right. You’re Natalie F***ing Portman, slayer of Moby, girl who shaved her head for a role because why not, VERY well educated... and you were hated on. You openly hate on your experiences with Marvel.

THEN your character becomes Thor in the comics and has some DEEP storylines. “Maybe that’s because I was in a movie as her”, you (as Natalie Portman) ask yourself (also as Natalie Portman). Maybe you agreed to a cameo in Endgame but you couldn’t work the scheduling so you still have one movie left on your contract. You know they’re filming Thor 3 and Avengers Infinity War/Endgame almost back to back, and you just don’t have the time...

Then Thor 3 drops and is a total change in tone, cements THAT franchise as one of the new cornerstones of the MCU and is an absolute smash.

“What the hell?!” you think, as Natalie Portman. You see a gap— no RDjr, no Evans, no Johanssen. And Captain marvel just SLAYED. The future of Marvel looks to be very much female.

You pick up your phone and scroll down to Kevin Feige’s number, your Natalie Portman fingers hovering for a second before you hit “dial”...

I hope she isn't actually called 'Thor', that would be like Sam going into combat not as 'Captain America' but as 'Steve'

Thor 1 is one of the worst MCU movies? Give me a break.

Totally agree that Dark World wasn't great (and is probably bottom of the pile or at least very close) but the first was brilliant. For me, it's at least better than Incredible Hulk or Homecoming, and probably on a par with Doctor Strange. Those early views of Asgard were stunning and miles away from the more "pedestrian" wider world building we'd seen until then. I still love the first Thor movie. Loki is the best villain in the franchise by far, Hopkins as Odin was inspired, and Hemsworth has been shown to be a great Thor.

@Spectral— I enjoyed it too, however we’re in the minority, especially if you take Rotten Tomatoes etc into account 🤷‍♂️

Yes. I am Natalie Portman’s alter-ego. I AM THE BLACK SWAN.

I have concerns about Natalie Portman coming back as she didn't exactly light up the screen for me, but a big part of that was due to the lackluster second film. With the Ragnorak director at the helm maybe he can inject some life into her...especially if it looks like she will become Thor.

My other big WANT of the film is for it to stay away from Earth as much as possible. There are so many other realms out there and so many fantasy beasts to put in, why not explore that. I was always disappointed how little we really saw of Asgard.

At least Ragnarok barely featured Earth...so that might be the route going forward.

We still have Muspheliem, Niffihelihem (sp) and Vanilaheim (I’m sure I spelled them all wrong)...maybe we’ll get Heven?

Dude. Now I wish they hadn't gone with Hela as Thor's sister because I would love Angela being brought to life on the big screen.

Thinking about it they may skip other Asgardian worlds since they’ve basically used all the “good” characters from them...Surtur, Malekith, Hela, the dwarf...at this point I hope they go all the way and bring in the High evolutionary, Man-Beast, The Recorder, Firelord, or maybe Mangog. I mean why not? He is basically the last big bad of Thor’s you can use now.

BC - How dare you forget ENCHANTRESS.

I also think Portman was justified when she criticized the MCU - she was specifically annoyed that she was playing a damsel-y love interest. Yeah, her character was a genius, but she still ended up needing rescue for most of both movies. I enjoyed Thor 1, but recently having watched The Dark World...that film is a mess, and Portman was pissed because Marvel kept changing directors and fired one she had brought to the film who was a female director that wanted to center a female narrative. Marvel didn't like that. So, as much as I may not love Portman for any particular reason, she had solid justification for not wanting to be involved again. BUT, when you see Waititi, a director CATE BLANCHETT did a damn Marvel film specifically to work with, has taken over the franchise, made a much beloved, fun film where a badass black woman and the first major female villain are fully formed characters, and also that Captain Marvel comes out and makes over a billion and inspires girls everywhere, you may change your mind and come back to the franchise to do a really cool story that's been done with your character in the comics.

The backlash on social media is predicatable but also hilarious to me. The cheering in that room for her is what matters. I'm mostly excited that Waititi and Thompson are back, though. Maybe Angela will be Val's girlfriend?

I’ve been reading old Thor (80d and up) and Enchantress really used to fall into anti-hero sorta area in the 90s, so she wasnt on my mind lol...speaking of, that was such a crazy time. Thor pre-Jurgens was soooo bad lol

Enchantress would be fun.

Thor hasn't got the largest of rogue galleries, I personally wouldn't mind to see an update of the Wrecking Crew. Not because they're particularly great villains themselves, but they do have one of the greatest villain names going, and having four dudes just out to completely smash things up would be pretty awesome.
