The Thor movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) have gone through a variety of tones. The God of Thunder’s corner of the MCU started off well with Thor, but the sequel Thor: The Dark World was not as good as expected. Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, was a bit divisive, with some appreciating the film’s humorous tone and others not so much. However, the upcoming Thor 5 is rumored to have a darker tone, with a director who has experience with “serious” work at the helm. Chris Hemsworth himself has commented that the previous Thor film, Love and Thunder, was too silly.
According to scooper Daniel Richtman, the upcoming Thor 5 movie will have a darker tone compared to the previous films directed by Taika Waititi. Fans are excited to see the God of Thunder in a more serious role rather than constantly making jokes and doing the splits. Marvel Studios is reportedly looking for a director with experience in serious work for the next installment. Gareth Edwards, known for directing Godzilla, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and The Creator, is one of the filmmakers being considered for the job.
We should take the following information with a grain of salt for now, but it appears as though the Thor franchise is headed in a positive direction. The change in tone is not expected to be too abrupt, but we should anticipate that some Waititi additions to the franchise, such as Korg and Love, may be removed. Earlier this year, Hemsworth remarked about the possibility of a fifth Thor movie, stating, “I feel like we’d probably have to close the book if I ever did it again, you know what I mean? I feel like it probably warrants that. I feel like it’d probably be the finale, but that’s not based on anything anyone’s told me or any sort of plans.” Hemsworth also questioned if he is at the “birth of a hero, the journey of a hero, or the death of a hero” stage, leaving fans to wonder what possibilities await.
It is crucial that the next chapter of God of Thunder’s story is portrayed in a darker tone if this is indeed the end. It remains unknown whether Thor 5 will be released before or after Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, but it is highly likely that Chris Hemsworth will appear in both films.
Marvel Studios has not yet made an official announcement regarding Thor 5. However, Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, recently confirmed that the movie is under development without his involvement.
