So far, we’ve been able to enjoy three movies from the Thor series: Thor (2011), Thor: The Dark World (2013), and Thor: Ragnarok (2017). They all had their own charm, namely, Chris Hemsworth, but the new movie that’s set to be released later this year, Thor: Love and Thunder, is something that fans have been eagerly awaiting. And with Natalie Portman coming to reimagine Jane Foster’s role, there’s plenty to look forward to.
It’s been nearly five years since the last movie. True, we’ve had quite a few other movies to tide us over, like Spider-Man: No Way Home and more recently, the thrilling Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, however, fans have quite a movie to expect. Not only that, but the trailers have revealed plenty, giving us quite a few things to talk about in the meantime.
For instance, why and how can Jane Foster claim Mjolnir and use the hammer with such ease?
She isn’t the only one to wield the hammer, either – not counting Thor, of course. Steve Rogers also used it during his fight with Thanos. This also begs the question of whether there are others worthy of Mjolnir, and who they might be. In addition, fans are also extremely curious about Thor’s past relationship with Jane.
How far back did Jane and Thor’s relationship go?
We can only assume that they’re still on amicable terms. And how exactly did Thor go from dad bod to god bod? (Korg’s words, not ours). Most of us have quite a few pounds to drop thanks to the pandemic, so a Thor-inspired workout would be greatly appreciated.
Hemsworth has helped bring Thor to the big screen, but the character’s popularity throughout digital media ensures that the Thor films have a wide appeal. And this is unlikely to stop as the new Thor movie edges closer to its release date.
A few mobile games featuring him have made huge waves in the gaming world. For instance, Thor: War of Tapnarok was extremely popular among mobile gamers, and Thor: The Dark World was an interesting option for both Android and iOS devices until Gameloft removed the game from the Play Store and Apple Store.
Mobile games aren’t the only option for Thor fans, either while they wait for the new film to be released. Power of Thor Megaways is one of the online slot titles on Gala Bingo, and it leans heavily on the Norse God’s imagery. Whilst not a traditional video game, the online slot features the typical things associated with The God of Thunder. And let’s not forget console games like Thor: God of Thunder that were also successful at giving fans something to enjoy between movies.
But the aforementioned gaps between Thor films are quite common, as Marvel looks to create significant buzz around their film releases. For the upcoming movie, fans can not only look forward to Hemsworth’s Thor hitting the big screen once more, they also have a whole cast of characters, old and new, breathing life into a new storyline. Marvel fans will also be looking forward to what Natalie Portman has to bring to the table as Thor’s ex.
