Thor Love and Thunder theory: Chris Hemsworth will play three versions of Thor from comics

Marvel announces Natalie Portman to play female Thor

Marvel Phase 4 kicks off next year with WandaVision and the next saga of the MCU looks to be heavily exploring the multiverse. With three incarnations of Peter Parker set to feature in untitled Spider-Man 3, it feels like anything could happen. And now a popular new fan theory argues that Taika Waititi’s Thor Love and Thunder will follow suit by having Chris Hemsworth play three versions of Thor from a popular Marvel Comics line opposite Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor.

Reddit user TheMediocreCritic argues that these three Thors will be past, present and future versions of the Asgardian god, while Jane Foster will be the fourth Thor.

They wrote: “The four Thorsmen of the apocalypse. Sorry I couldn’t resist.

“Thor will be out of his own timeline while Jane Foster’s Thor protects the Earth.

“Phase 4 of the MCU is set to be the strangest yet, with the recent addition of time travel, the upcoming multiverse and the possible altered reality in WandaVision, literally anything can happen.”

The theorist pointed out that Jason Aaron’s Marvel Comics run introduced three Thors, with the youngest from the distant Viking past, the present one and King Thor from the distant future.

The fan wrote: “In the series, the Thors are brought together by a series of events caused by the god butchering villain, Gorr.

“I believe that the upcoming Thor Love and Thunder will pull from this storyline but will change some of the details to match the MCU.”

Let’s not forget that we last saw Fat Thor jetting off into space with the Guardians of the Galaxy at the conclusion to Avengers Endgame.

The fan speculated the plot writing: “While adventuring through the galaxy with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor will be pulled out of his timeline and into a distant future.

“There he will meet the future King Thor version of himself and younger, brasher version. These three will not get along.

“In the future, almost all the gods are dead or enslaved, Gorr rules with an iron fist. Thor will have to come to terms with his violent warrior past and his bleak future and lead ‘himselves’ against Gorr.”

Whatever the case, Christian Bale will be playing the villain – currently not confirmed as Gorr – in Thor Love and Thunder.

The theorist continued: “This would work well to see how Thor has matured and changed since his days as a Viking god and the bitter lonely old man he will become.

“The three will have to put aside their differences and band together to defeat Gorr.

“But more importantly young Thor has brought an old friend with him from the past –Mjölnir!”

Fans will remember that Thor’s hammer was destroyed in Thor Ragnarok, so he had to borrow an alternate past version of his Asgardian weapon from 2013.

They concluded: “Mjölnir immediately leaves the trio and flies to Earth, landing at the feet of a cancer-stricken Jane Foster. Upon picking up the hammer her strength returns and she is given the power of Thor.”

Certainly having multiple Thors would tie-in with there being multiple versions of Spider-Man. This is leading some fans to believe that Avengers 5 will be the Secret Wars comics storyline in which the Marvel multiverse collided.

Thor Love and Thunder is released in cinemas on February 11, 2022.
