Thor 4 might follow the other Marvel movies like Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, which dealt with both alternate realities and variants, if the rumors that it will also use the multiverse theory are true.
Thor 4 Among the Marvel Movies to Use the Multiverse Concept?
Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Tom Holland's Spider-Man: No Way Home are both using multiple universes across their storyline. According to Inverse, chances are, apart from the two superhero movies, Chris Hemsworth's upcoming Thor film might also incorporate multiverse in its plot.
Loki Season 1 wrapped up using a full-on creation of a multiverse. Thus, it will not be a huge surprise if it will use the same concept in Thor: Love and Thunder movie.
Multiverse Theory For Thor 4
According to fans, there are still many characters in the film that are yet to be explored and they can be shown in the film using the multiverse concept.
For example, one of the several Thor variants is King Thor. He has been part of the comics over the years from the Earth-14412 universe.
King Thor sacrificed his eyes in a battle and became the Father of Asgard. He later became disheartened and cynical after Loki destroyed all life on earth.
King Thor crossed paths with Gorr the God Butcher in the comics several times. Gorr conquered and enslaved all the inhabitants of Asgard as part of his plot to destroy every God that exists in the multiverse. King Thor later teamed up with two other versions of himself to defeat Gorr.
Christian Bale, who led Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, signed on Thor: Love and Thunder to play Gorr the God Butcher. The addition of Gorr in the upcoming Thorquel sparked rumors that Thor (Hemsworth) will be teaming up with his alternate selves to overpower Gorr just like the story in the comics.
The multiverse concept will give Hemsworth the opportunity to play an older version of himself. It's also a chance to pay homage to the Gorr-centric comics.
