After a quest of finding another purpose in his thousand-and-a-half year old life, the God of Thunder finally found a new reason to go on despite all the losses he suffered throughout his journey. Will this new path he had in Thor: Love and Thunder continue in Thor 5?
Will There Be Thor 5 After Thor: Love and Thunder?
Other than Wanda, there is another MCU hero that has a life full of losses: Thor. Frigga, his mother, died in the first film and he thought the same about Loki; he lost Loki again in Thor: The Dark World; his father, Odin, passed away in Thor: Ragnarok, not to mention he lost the Mjölnir, too.
In Infinity War, he totally and finally lost Loki who died right before his eyes as Thanos snapped the neck of the God of Mischief. Grief-stricken, Thor even lost shape as he drowned himself with beer and video games, and his colleagues, Iron Man and Black Widow, died in Endgame.
This goes the same for him in Thor: Love and Thunder. The love of his life, Jane, perished in his arms. Even after all these losses in Thor's life, he now has a new purpose, one that is different, less fighting but more love and affection -- looking after Gorr's child and being a parent.
With a new path in life, it is a great sign for Thor but it is still early to tell whether there would be Thor 5. To date, there is nothing in the MCU slate that points to the fifth installment of the God of Thunder in the franchise.
Still, with Thor being the first ever Marvel hero to get four solo movies, it is not impossible that Chris Hemsworth would continue making new records in the franchise and beat what he has already established. He played Thor for more or less 11 years already and it seems that he has no plans of retiring just yet.
In an interview with ExtraTV while on the red carpet premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth revealed that he would love to keep playing Thor for as long as it is possible.
Hemsworth added that he is game for more if the fans would want more, "We'll see what the fans want. I'm down for whatever is enjoyable and having a good time, and that's what this experience in the Marvel world has been for me, so bring it on."
Thor: Love and Thunder is now showing in theaters.
