Avengers Fan Theory Gives Thor a Major Change After Secret Wars
Marvel Studios has been having some fantastic luck for more than decade since their launch with Iron Man (2008) and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. The studio has been ramping up the quantity of productions they do a year with them releasing in excess of six projects via the theater and the Disney+ streaming service. Moon Knight, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ms. Marvel, Thor: Love and Thunder, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have been or will be released this year with the latter wrapping up Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio will conclude the Multiverse Saga with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secrets Wars. One fan has an idea of where Marvel could go with Thor after the Multiverse Saga, and it has to do with a change in his mantle. According to this fan theory on Reddit, as Chris Hemsworth gets more seasoned, Thor will take over the mantle of Odin and give his Thor mantle to a lot younger character.
“In the comics, Thor and Odin are titles held by whoever holds the Thorforce and Odinforce respectively, each of which are Skyfather powers. With Odin dead and Chris Hemsworth having a definite best-before date looming (it becoming increasingly hard to disguise his aging, something the immortal divine force of thunder isn’t supposed to do), they’re going to require a way to keep him around however explain his more established appearance,” The Reddit user composed. “It would make ideal sense to have the ongoing Thor ascend to the role of Odin, something he does in the comics. This wouldn’t only allow a young newcomer to move into the role of Thor, yet additionally give an enroll to the Young Avengers in Phase 6 or Phase 7. And it would justify a more established and more mature search for Hemsworth.”
During San Diego Comic-Con, the studio revealed that they will officially wrap up the new saga with two new Avengers movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige seems to think that the multiverse is fine in Jonathan Majors’ hands. During the same interview, Feige revealed that the Kang the Conqueror actor is appropriate for this role.
“It comes down to the cast and with Jonathan Majors, who I think took over the Hall H stage, you know, in the three minutes he was up there,” Feige told us. “It’s amazing, and I said to him there’s no one’s shoulders I’d rather be putting the multiverse saga on than his. It’s really impressive what Jonathan Majors is able to do and all the various incarnations, variants, maybe, of Kang that we will see him do. It’s really cool.”
“What I love is that he’s totally unique in relation to Thanos. That he is totally unique. That it’s not just what about there’s a greater purple person with a helmet? That’s not what Kang is. Kang is an altogether different sort of villain and the fact that he is many, many various characters is what’s most exciting and most differentiates him.” The Marvel Studios President added.
