What MCU Things to Watch Before Thor: Love and Thunder


Why: Thor takes a shower and brags about his very particular relationship with the conflict hammer Mjolnir, and that’s about it for the Thunder God on this one. The former didn’t matter in 2015 and it means even much less now; the latter truth is already established within the earlier two Thor films, so skip. Trust us, there’s little else to see right here.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Is it essential? YES!

Why: This 2017 customary is among the many high tier of Marvel Studios releases for a lot of followers—our personal workers and readers picked it as their favorite MCU movie! There’s good motive for this; Ragnarok is a fab good time from director Taika Waititi, who introduced his private model of decadent weirdness to the MCU and eventually unshackled Chris Hemsworth’s pure comedian skill. Dropping the faux-Shakespearean and dramatic airs of earlier Thor films, Hemsworth’s allowed to let his hair down (and reduce it off!) whereas revealing a goofier, extra gregarious model of his superhero.

Since Waititi returns as director in Thor: Love and Thunder, and now co-writer too, you possibly can relaxation assured he picks up on the mischievous vibes from Ragnarok and multiplies them. He additionally brings again Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, who will get much more display screen time to steal in Love and Thunder, and Thor’s rocking sidekick Korg (a literal CG-rock monster voiced by Waititi). Not a foul trade-in after dropping his conflict hammer Mjolnir on this film. And, oh yeah… Mjolnir’s coming again!

Thor with Guardians in Avengers Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Is it essential? Definitely.

Why: Ragnarok is likely to be Thor: Love and Thunder’s thematic soulmate, however in case you don’t know/bear in mind the occasions of the one-two punch that’s Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), you’ll be utterly misplaced in Love and Thunder. And that epic Avengers story arc begins right here by revealing the vaguely optimistic destiny of the Asgardians arrange by Ragnarok was a lie! The very first scene reveals what occurs to these house vacationers run into Thanos (spoilers: nothing good). Afterward, Thor is shipped spiraling right into a deep despair, in addition to searching for the brand new weapon he carries in Love and Thunder, the conflict axe known as Stormbreaker.
