The God of Thunder returns to the silver screen this summer in Thor: Love and Thunder. Before he does, find out how to catch up on his Marvel movie saga. 

It won’t be long until Chris Hemsworth straps on that Asgardian armor and wields the axe known as Stormbreaker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe once again. Yes, Thor is on his way back to screens in another theatrical release.

Joining Hemsworth in the movie will be Tessa Thompson and Taika Waititi, who reprise their roles as Valkyrie and Korg respectively, as well as Christian Bale, who portrays the villainous Gorr the God Butcher.

The Guardians of the Galaxy will also appear, but the most exciting return is that of Natalie Portman, who brings Jane Foster back in what will undoubtedly be her biggest appearance yet, as the character becomes Mighty Thor.

If you’re excited for Hemsworth’s return to the role, but you haven’t seen his previous work in the MCU, you might want to catch up on his journey thus far. If you don’t have time to watch all 28 MCU films, and would rather just watch the Asgardian Warrior’s story, here’s the viewing order for his films.
