While several of the original Avengers have now exited the Marvel Cinematic Universe--including Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow--Thor continues to play a major part in the MCU. After three standalone films and four Avengers movies, Chris Hemsworth is set to return as the Asgardian God in Thor: Love and Thunder.
The first Thor movie was released way back in 2009, when the MCU was still finding its feet. Thor played the major part in 2012"s hugely successful The Avengers, but many fans were disappointed by his next appearance, the muddled Thor: The Dark World. It was the arrival of acclaimed New Zealand director Taika Waititi for 2017"s Thor Ragnarok that really delivered the potential of this outlandish character, as Waititi delivered a hilarious, unpredictable, and sometimes surreal intergalactic adventure.
Thor: Love and Thunder was officially announced in 2019 and it finally arrives this year. With an amazing cast and Waititi back in the director"s chair, there"s every possibility that it will be something truly special. So he"s everything we know so far about Thor: Love and Thunder.
