Is Thor: Love and Thunder the last Thor movie?
If you’re wondering what the future holds for the God of Thunder, you’ll probably want to know if he’s coming back for another movie. Thor: Love and Thunder is a record for solo hero movies, serving as the fourth standalone film for Chris Hemsworth’s hero, but is it also the last in the franchise?
At present, it is unknown whether Thor: Love and Thunder will be the last film in the Thor film series, but there’s definitely room for another. Without giving anything away, like most MCU movies, Thor 4 it leaves the story open in a way that writers could come back to in the future. And speaking of the future, we know we haven’t seen the last of the hero…
Is Thor 5 happening?
While it is yet to be confirmed if Thor 5 will actually happen, Marvel Studios has confirmed that the God of Thunder will return in some future installment of the MCU as a post-credits blurb says “Thor will return.”
We don’t know how, we don’t know when. but it goes without saying that the most likely option would be a fifth film – particularly since it will take some time for a new Avengers film to begin. Then again, maybe the wait is exactly what Marvel Studios wants.
Of course, these are all just theories and it’s best to wait until Marvel Studios confirms when the God of Thunder will return. For now, though, we can be sure he’ll be back in some capacity.
