The first reviews for Thor: Love and Thunder are out, with the movie set to release in theatres around the world later this week.
So far, the reception has been positive, with praises for its splendid cast, which features Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale and more.
While the movie had its fair share of explosive action sequences, many reviewers have stated that fans might want to look out for some surprises, especially in the post-credits scene.
With Marvel Studios mostly supplying surprises in the form of cameos, we wondered whether we had any ideas on what characters the fourth installment of the franchise should have, and here are our best answers to that question.
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage made a surprise appearance in Avengers: Endgame as Eitri, the King of the Dwarves, as he created Stormbreaker for Thor.
With Gorr the God Butcher causing a real headache for Thor and co., it’s very likely that Thor might be looking for new firepower to fight off his latest enemy, making Eitri the prime candidate for that job.
Beta Ray Bill
Beta Ray Bill is part of a coveted list of characters, who can wield Mjolnir besides Thor, Mighty Thor, Captain America and many more.
In the comics, Beta Ray Bill was an ally to Thor and Mighty Thor, especially during their battle with Gorr, which makes him a shoo-in to be a part of the upcoming movie.
King Thor is the battle hardened version of the character, who holds the ability to use the Thor-force, which he gained from his father.
During Thor’s battle with Gorr the God Butcher, the character joined forces with Thor the Avenger and Young Thor to kill Gorr once and for all, which is why an appearance from him in the movie might not be a far-fetched thought.
Thor believes that his brother Loki died at the hands of Thanos. However, with Loki escaping during the time-travelling events of Avengers: Endgame, a reunion between the two Norse Gods is a must.
While Loki is currently investigating that issues surrounding the new timeline, TVA and the death of He Who Remains, Thor’s arrival at the former’s doorstep is something we all wish for.
Thor: Ragnarok had a surprise introduction in the form of Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster aka the ruler of Sakaar.
With the Grandmaster overthrown by the people of Sakaar at the end of Thor: Ragnarok, a hilarious interaction between the former and the God of Thunder should definitely be on the cards.
The King of the Symbiotes has long touted to be Marvel’s next major villain after the likes of Thanos and Kang the Conqueror.
With Gorr the God Butcher using the Necrosword, which originated from Knull, a little backstory about the character can set up a massive future saga for the feared symbiote.
With Russell Crowe joining Thor: Love and Thunder as the Greek God Zeus, it seems like Marvel soon open up a new side of Mythology, and who fits the bill better than Hercules.
The Greek God has been one of the more popular mythological characters in the world of Marvel comics, and it won’t be long before the MCU adapts him.
