Thor Love and Thunder: It's time for Chris Hemsworth to step down from the MCU

The upcoming blockbuster Thor: Love and Thunder has been extremely anticipated because it was introduced all these years in the past. The fourth movie within the franchise continues instantly on from the occasions of Avengers Endgame, and the movie’s debut trailer has already teased what followers are going to see.

The primary portion of the teaser exhibits “Fats Thor” understanding in a coaching montage to lose his comical(?) weight, whereas additionally burying Stormbreaker, signifying the top of his preventing days.

Taika Waititi returns to direct Love and Thunder – clearly Marvel had been happy with how he dealt with Thor: Ragnarok – so followers can count on all types of chaotic galactic nonsense happening. However between the arrival of Zeus, Gorr the God Butcher and Thor’s superior new gold armour, the trailer additionally debuted a brand new hero: Mighty Thor.

Mighty Thor, as she is understood within the comedian books, is performed by Natalie Portman who’s reprising her position as Jane Foster.

Jane has not been seen for the reason that abhorrent second Thor film (Thor: The Darkish World) the place she performed a personality with no actual depth or goal – not for lack of attempting on Portman’s half.

After that, she was written out in a passing remark about how she dumped Thor (“I dumped her really,” he replied).

I firmly consider Jane’s arrival is the top for Thor as we all know him – and I could not be happier.

The issue for me with Thor is that he has by no means had any stakes connected to his character. He’s an immortal god prince of an historical futuristic alien planet with no actual struggles.

The Darkish World tried to place Jane in danger by imbuing her with the Actuality Stone (the Aether, on the time). However as soon as she was saved, she was swiftly written out. Waititi made the very best try in Ragnarok by taking away his legendary hammer, Mjolnir, destroyed by his long-lost sister, Hela. However it turned out he inexplicably had all the ability he wanted inside him all the time.

Avengers Infinity Warfare had him lose the conflict in opposition to Thanos, launching him into probably the most fascinating arc he has had but. In Endgame he was chubby, depressed, and in want of a great chat together with his mum (I imply, who amongst us does not want that?)

The trailer for Love and Thunder makes it seem like Thor has his life all discovered once more. And that is… not engaging.

Thor provides up being a hero and, presumably, returns to hanging out with different immortal god-kings. In fact, this would possibly not final lengthy, and Gorr the God Butcher will certainly power him out of retirement. 

However Gorr already appears like he has been thrown into the sequence simply to shake Thor up a bit of bit. All of it appears a bit of stretched skinny.

Enter: Jane Foster – The Mighty Thor. A a lot better, extra down-to-earth tackle the superhero conundrum.

Jane’s comedian e-book ThOrigins had her coping with a extra private human battle: most cancers. She not solely needed to tackle the forces of evil with some other-worldly hammer, however she needed to do it between chemotherapy classes. Whereas it has not but been confirmed that this sickness origin story will probably be used for Jane’s MCU return, Kevin Feige and Co can be foolish to not utilise it. 

Thor: Love and Thunder is the proper alternative for Marvel to (gently) kill off Thor – maybe whereas saving the one particular person he is ever actually beloved, Jane – whereas formally handing over the mantle of God of Thunder to Jane.

Hell, this final result is even teased within the poster’s tagline: Thor: Love and Thunder – “The One and Solely”. Not for lengthy, Hemsworth.

Thor Odinson’s substitute would slot in with the altering state of the MCU in the intervening time.

Captain America was (lastly!) taken over by Sam Wilson with Bucky at his facet in Falcon and The Winter Soldier – however there may be nonetheless work to be carried out.

There are nonetheless a disproportionate quantity of males versus girls within the Avengers’ lineup. However it’s enhancing, to make sure. Particularly with all the brand new additions to the staff.

Hawkeye has a brand new protege in Kate Bishop; Black Widow will probably be taken over formally by Yelena; She-Hulk is on her solution to Disney Plus; Ms Marvel is across the nook, and Evie (Woman Loki) is round, someplace.

Having the Mighty Thor be part of the Avengers for the subsequent step of the universe’s large battle can be an unimaginable transfer for the sequence. And one which I hope occurs by the top of Love and Thunder.
