Marvel Studios’ upcoming Thor 4 titled as Thor: Love and Thunder is set to release before Guardians Of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This seems to have prompted fans to ask the question if the fourth installment from the God of Thunder’s franchise is set to take place before of after GOTG Vol. 3.
Fortunately, director James Gunn clarified that Thor: Love and Thunder is set before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The news comes after Marvel Studi0s’ thrilling announcements of its set plans for MCU Phase 4 at San Diego Comic-con.
The director revealed the news when a fan commented on his Instagram post asking if the fourth installment is set before or after Vol.3. Gunn responded with a simple, “Before” reply to the fan. You can check it out below.
Thor: Love and Thunder was one of the most anticipated reveal at SDCC 2019 as MCU’s Kevin Feige unveiled a part of the studios’ plan for Phase 4. Thor 4 will be directed by Taika Waititi and seems likely he would also reprise his role as Thor’s new alien buddy, Korg.
Fans’ excitement for Thor 4 doubled after learning Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Thor’s love interest, Dr. Jane Foster and also become the new Mighty Thor.
Thor: Love and Thunder will take place post the events of Avengers: Endgame. Given how Thor’s journey unfolded in the end as he travels with the Guardians–it prompted us to ask if the God of Thunder will appear in Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Gunn’s clarification still doesn’t tell if Thor would return in Vol. 3 or if the Guardians could appear in Thor 4.
It will be exciting to see what kind of role Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie would play in the upcoming Thor 4. In Avengers: Endgame, The God of Thunder leaves Valkyrie in charge as Queen of the small town which houses the surviving Asgardians.
Thor: Love and Thunder releases on November 5, 2021.
