It’s finally happened! Marvel fatigue has finally started to set in. After 14 years, 29 movies and a number of television shows, it was bound to happen. This may not be true for all fans. There are fanboys who believe that the studio can do no wrong and laps up everything that they release. However, there is no denying that the new Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the weakest. It lacks the direction the other phases had. Yes, the multiverse has arrived, but that is only a story element, but so far, we have not seen where this is taking us. “Thor: Love and Thunder” does not correct this course.
This is the first-fourth solo outing for a Marvel superhero. Iron Man and Captain America stopped at three. The third Thor movie, Ragnarok is considered the best of the franchise thanks in large part to the direction of Taika Waititi. He’s back again in the directors chair that sees the God of Thunder now looking for his place in the universe and finds himself at odds with Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). Thor also has a new ally, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), his ex-girlfriend who is also the new Mighty Thor.
