Three Reasons Marvel Is Now Playing Defense as “Thor 4” Passes $500 Million


Marvel Studios is now playing defense. The latest movie in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Thor: Ragnarok, has hit $500 million worldwide and counting in just over a week of its release. If you think this is bad news for Marvel, you are right on the money.

But if you think that this downturn spells the end of MCU’s success. Also, then it’s time to put down your popcorn and rethink your strategy. Thor: Ragnarok may be a blockbuster hit, but that doesn’t have to mean doom and gloom for Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.

To understand why Marvel Studios is now playing defense. Also, let us take a look at the three major reasons that Thor: Ragnarok has turned out to be their weakest box-office grosser in recent years.

Introduction to the Thor: Love & Thunder

It is the third title Marvel Comics has announced as part of its Fresh Start initiative, designed to place new comics at the top of their respective lines.


The story will be centered around Thor’s relationship with his brother Loki, who will be a key player in the comic following his appearance in Thor: Ragnarok. The series was initially titled “Loki: God of Mischief” but was changed before publication.

Jason Aaron will serve as a writer on this new series which starts with Thor deposed from being king as he returns to Earth after his time off-world.

Thor: Love & Thunder is an upcoming American superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics superhero Thor, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Jane Foster from Thor, while Chris Hemsworth returns in the title role.

In addition to the two returning actors in their respective roles, Cate Blanchett joins the cast as Hela, and Tessa Thompson stars in a supporting role as Valkyrie. Other new additions to the cast include Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Idris Elba as Heimdall.

The storyline of the Thor: Love & Thunder

The story follows Natalie Portman’s character, Jane Foster, and her two predecessors as Thor during the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When Thor was cast in his first film release “Thor” back in 2011, he was a fresh start for the film franchise and a new take on the comic book hero. However, after three movies in 12 years featuring Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god of thunder, critics are claiming that Marvel should have made a permanent change six years ago when Natalie Portman played Jane Foster in “Thor: The Dark World”.

With many fans angry at how she is receiving more screentime and little attention from Thor himself, we can only wait to see how this movie will affect Marvel’s future.
