Thor is undeniably one of the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Without the son of Odin’s inclusion, it would be difficult for some to grasp the other worldliness that’s responsible for some of the core plot lines of the films – i.e. the Infinity Stones. Thor (2011) came in-between Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger. Making the God of Thunder the second Avenger to get a stand-alone film – unless you want to be super technical and include Edward Norton as the Hulk.
Through four total appearances, we’ve seen Chris Hemsworth portray Thor as both an ungrateful prince full of hubris and a wiser adult that holds himself accountable for the safety of his newly adopted home. As the ancient knowledge of the Infinity Stones becomes more important in the MCU, we’ll be sure to hear more from Thor, especially in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
