Latest Entertainment Updates on Thor

To watch this movie one has to wait for a good duration, as it will release on November 2021. The movie Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth and final film on Marvel’s censure for next year.  It is said that in the film, Thor could be going up against a character which has no connection with Norse mythology, a member of the Greek pantheon. This is the reason Marvel might introduce the Greek gods in Thor: Love and Thunder. 

Thor 4: Love and Thunder Depicting Norse Mythology

This movie can introduce the Greek pantheon of gods to the MCU (Marvel Comics Universe) through Christian Bale’s character. The Thor franchise has always been determined to articulate Gods from Norse mythology like Thor, Odin, and Loki, but in Marvel Comics, it is seen that the Greek gods existence allows Thor to interact with characters like Hercules, Ares, and Zeus.

Thor 4: Chris Hemsworth as God of Thunder

Chris Hemsworth after playing lead roles in three solo films and four Avengers movies, is set to show himself in a new role, as the God of Thunder in Thor: Love and Thunder, which makes Chris, the first ever MCU character to have his movie series extend beyond a trilogy. Taika Waititi, who has restored the Thor franchise by directing Thor: Ragnarok, is back to direct Thor 4 now, which will also bring the old stars back, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who since 2013’s,  hasn’t appeared in the MCU Thor: The Dark World.

Thor 4: Most of The Asgardian Gods In The MCU Are Dead

Thor: Love and Thunder could presumably introduce a few more Asgardian gods, such as Balder the Brave, but would be elaborating, how they had survived Thor: Ragnarok. The comic books had already proved that Thor can interact with other gods who have nothing to do with Asgard (Norse Gods). The Thor franchise while moving in this direction can help rebuild its cast with new heroes and villains. So, as the Thor franchise move forward, now may be a good time for Marvel to introduce a new supporting cast by looking outside the Norse myths and the Nine Realms.

Thor 4: Christian Bale Could Play the Role of Ares

It was reported that Christian Bale star of The Dark Knight was assumed to be the cast of Thor 4 in an unrevealed role. It is just assumed that, he could play an “otherworldly” villain, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet. There are many names who can be seen around are Balder the Brave, Beta Ray Bill, and Ares. Christian Bale is playing a villain, has been confirmed by Tessa Thompson.

Ares is known to be the God of War and Hercules’ biggest villain in Marvel Comics is a violent and cruel warrior who flourishes on battle and warfare. Since years, Ares has been depicted as an anti-hero at times, but for the most part is depicted as a villain who will do all ifs and buts to win.

When Chris was playing the role of Batman and other characters, he had shown that he would be perfect for a severe, threatening, nonsense villain like Ares. As Ares being living instrument of war, needs to be physically imposing, and the characters (and the audience) will be able to see as a reasonable threat to Thor. Bale will justify his role of Ares on the big screen.

Thor 4: Introduction of the Greek Gods to the MCU

Ares is just one of many Greek gods who populated the Marvel Universe. Chris Gale by playing the role of Ares in Thor: Love and Thunder, wonders can be brought in a whole new world to the MCU. In the comics, there is another gateway to exist for Mount Olympus, which is the home to the Olympian gods, played by Odin’s Greek counterpart, Zeus. Thor and the Avengers have had encounters with numerous characters from the dimension of Olympus, such as Hercules, Typhon, Poseidon, Hades, Venus, and more. One of them – Hercules – is a key member of the Avengers who the MCU may have plans to use at some point in the future, given Hercules’ importance to the comics.

Thor 4: The Release Date

When Chris agreed to come back for the fourth movie, Waititi intentionally delayed his live-action adaptation of Akira for Warner Bros, and now very soon will be working on Thor: Love and Thunder.

Thor: Love and Thunder will be publicized on November 5, 2021, currently the last scheduled movie of Phase 4, although it will be followed by others in 2022. Contrary to reports, Waititi, yet hasn’t completed the script for the movie, He responded jokingly on Twitter: “Oh that’s cool!! I never cease to surprise me! (the title page is complete).”
