Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth Thor movie so far. It was released in 2022 and continues Thor’s story after he joins the Guardians of the Galaxy following the events of Avengers: Endgame. In the film, Thor joins forces with Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Dr. Jane Foster, who is battling cancer and is wielding a reconstructed Mjolnir, and Korg (Taika Waititi) to try to track down and defeat Gorr (Christian Bale) and the Necrosword from killing the Gods. Gorr has also kidnapped all of the children from New Asgard.
I loved Thor: Love and Thunder. It’s not quite as good as the other two Thor movies ahead of it on this list, but it’s fun, it has Screaming Goats, and Christian Bale is an incredible villain. I’m also a big fan of Waititi. There are some who believe they went a little too far with the and the movie didn’t reach the same level as Ragnarok, but it’s definitely worth a watch and rewatch.
There’s also just something about this cast. Hemsworth, Thompson, and Portman have excellent chemistry, and that makes the movie that much more enjoyable.
For the second-best Thor movie, we’re going back to where it all started for Thor and these unforgettable characters.
