Wow, wow, wow! Marvel has wasted to time in cementing Chris Hemsworth as Thor in another Thor film! Clearly, they know after the loss of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America fans will be wanting to still some some of our favorite Avengers on the big screen.
The first announcement from Marvel states that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi will be returning to helm Thor 4 as writer and director! Personally, I'm super excited to see Waititi returning to the MCU. His sense of humor and creativity rejuvenated the stale Thor: The Dark World feel and brought the franchise back to life.
The result being that Thor: Ragnarok became the highest grossing Thor solo film to date.
I can't say I didn't see this coming seeing how Marvel is keen to keep Thor a bit longer because we won't be seeing Iron Man and Captain America for a while - if ever in the Downey Jr. and Evans incarnations.
Last we saw Thor, he was ready to go find himself amongst the stars with the Guardians of the Galaxy following the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Depending on which film comes first, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 or Thor 4, it's a safe bet to say that Thor 4 will probably also take place somewhere in space. Don't forget the Loki series that will debut on the Disney+ streaming service. We saw a time-displaced Loki escape with the Tessaract in Endgame to places unknown.
Again, depending on release schedules the Loki series could also have direct causes and effects that will resonate within Thor 4. But all this Thor 4 talk has me wondering who will be the next big bad?!
I'm hoping that we finally get to see the MCU version of The Enchantress!
The MCU can definitely still use some more female villains that last more than a single film - I'm looking at you Hela! With her personal connections to Thor and Loki, The Enchantress would wreck a marvelous amount a mayhem across Thor 4 and the Loki series.
Who do you guys want to see as a villain in Thor 4?!
