Thor: Thunder and Love saw Chris Hemsworth make his fourth solo film appearance as the thunder god, a first for Marvel. The majority of MCU actors have appeared in three or fewer of their own standalone films, as well as in other team-up films or cameo roles in additional solo films.
Hemsworth hasn’t indicated that he will give up the role, though. Well, not precisely, at least. Fans were thrilled to see Natalie Portman reprise her role as Jane, dubbed Mighty Thor, in the fourth instalment of the Thor series, Thor: Love and Thunder.
Nothing has been confirmed, but there have been hints that Portman and Hemsworth may team up once more for Thor 5. Here is what is currently known about a fifth perspective Thor film, keeping that in mind.
Thor 5 Release Date
There isn’t a Thor 5 release date yet because the movie hasn’t been declared. The release of a fifth Thor movie is unlikely to occur until at least a few years from now, probably not until 2025 or later. Marvel has established release dates up through 2023 as of this writing, with a half-dozen productions needing dates after that.
Chis Hemsworth has stated that he is willing to do additional work, but only if there is a compelling narrative. He said to Total Film, “I’d like to leave before people tell me to leave.” We must thus wait and see. Hemsworth did, however, a state in a November 2022 interview with Vanity Fair that he believes his next appearance as Thor ought to be the last.
Who Will Return for Thor 5 in the Cast?
There are two distinct plot lines that, as we mentioned above, might feature a comeback for both Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. Without Taika Waititi’s Korg and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, a fifth Thor movie wouldn’t be Thor.
Given the hints in the mid-and post-credits scenes, it is likely that Russell Crowe will appear in a fifth Thor movie. Additionally, Hercules actor Brett Goldstein would probably have a bigger part in it.
Elba will probably reprise his role as Heimdall if Portman does. Some cameos in Thor: Love and Thunder were removed, but it’s unclear if Jeff Goldblum, Peter Dinklage, and Lena Headey would be available for a fifth.
What will happen in Thor 5?
It doesn’t in certain respects. It does in some cases. Thor: Love and Thunder is an independent narrative that doesn’t go into the multiverse. Thor will return is the coda, but it’s not clear how he plans to do it.
The mid-credits scene does, however, hint at the possibility of a fifth Thor film. It’s possible that Jane will make a fifth appearance now that she’s in Valhalla (along with Heimdall), as she was brought back to life in the comics following a similar demise.
Regarding Hemsworth’s return, in the movie’s middle-credits scene, Zeus (Ted Lasso’s Bret Goldstein) assigns his son Hercules the duty of tracking them down and taking retribution for, well, making a fool of him. Thus, Hercules and Thor might clash in a fifth movie.
These scenes could be looped separately or together in a fifth movie. Given that she is now Thor’s ward, can use Mjolnir, and has her own set of superpowers, it is also possible that we will see “Love,” the daughter of Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher (whom Thor adopted at the conclusion of the movie), again.
Is there any Trailer for Thor 5?
As we know there is no official announcement on Thor 5. So there is no trailer yet. You can watch the trailer for Thor 4 below.
