Thor was reinvented as a character by Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi in the third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, and his transition from the “stoic hero type” to a more humor based character is more befitting to the role and better blends with the newer direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans wholeheartedly agreed with the new take and are excited at the prospect of another Thor based film.
Currently in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Thor is traveling with the Guardians of the Galaxy, or as he likes to call them, the Asguardians of the Galaxy, which means more than likely the next Thor film will take place after Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
What and who do you think we will see in a fourth Thor film? What characters would you like to see join the MCU and fight alongside Thor? Will Thor see Lady Sif again? Share your ideas for Thor 4 in the comments! We would love to hear your theories!
