Thor Movie Order
Thor, is undeniable one character from the MCU that one can never get bored of (though it applies to almost all the characters), and when it is Chris Hemsworth then how can you get bored, right? Coming back to our main agenda of the article, we know there might be a lot of you who would like to watch and re-watch every movie that gives you a closer and specific view of Thor and many of you might want to know how exactly you should watch the Thor movie in the correct order and thus we are here to give you exactly that as we mentioned earlier.
We will share all the solo films that are solely dedicated to Thor or focus on him more or you must see if you are particularly looking for all the movies related to Thor and we will also give you the names of some special content that you might want to watch because it’s about Thor. And trust me this is not just for all the Thor fans out there but anyone can enjoy it because MCU and their characters are always worth your time.
To start with, the first movie that you must start with when you are particularly looking for spending your time with the character of Thor is the movie Thor that was released in 2011. The movie was directed by Kenneth Branagh and was a massive hit in the MCU solo character-based movie. In the movie, Chris Hemsworth was introduced as Thor, The God of Thunder and it was his debut in the universe, Loki was shown being played by Tom Hiddleston, and Natalie Portman was shown playing the role of Jane Foster.
This movie introduced several other important characters that played a major and pivotal role in Thor movies that followed and in the story of Thor in general and in the MCU. Thor was shown as the God prince who has fallen for a scientist who is on Earth. The prince has been betrayed by his own brother Loki and all this helps Thor to get to know about sacrifice and heroism along and we can tell you that everything in this movie is charming. Not to forget the first film is available on Disney+, so you can start with the film on the platform.
The next movie followed by Thor is 2012’s Avengers where we get to see that Thor is one of the Avengers. The movie as you all know was a blockbuster and Thor played a huge role in making it successful without any doubt. This movie focused on stopping Loki to invade earth. Though the viewers do not get to see Thor straight away from the beginning the moment he is introduced and the way he is introduced is something worth the wait and you can completely relate to it if you have already watched the film and are planning to watch it again.
The whole Avengers team is on a mission to stop Loki which means that Thor was not the major focus specifically but the movie is an important part of Thor’s life as this focused on his family and his feeling of responsibility for the nature of his family’s nature which might harm the planet and he does not want that to happen. This movie also gave every viewer the idea and the understanding that what all the avenger members and the team are capable of and made everyone wonder what the future movie holds.
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Another solo movie based on Thor was Thor: The Dark World which was released the year after Avengers that is in 2013 following the aftermath of the story of the Avengers where Thor had a clash with the Dark Elves and had to suffer a massive loss. You will also see that Loki has been captive. The movie shows Thor in various emotional situations. Thor in this movie is on Earth in order to know more about the weapon of Dark Elf called the Aether as it has infected none other than Jane making her the target. The situation leads to a war where apparently Loki dies but in actuality he does not. Odin is seen being sent to Earth and Thor denies the Asgard throne.
I know there are a lot of things happening and it kind of feels all over the place which at some point it was but then the movie has good parts which you cannot deny also the most important thing that happens is the introduction to infinity stones which you cannot miss. And since we are talking about the movies of Thor then we certainly have to mention and you will have to watch if you are going on with the story of Thor. Though the film, did not get as much popularity as others then it did have some important storylines and amazing action and ending. To watch everything, you should get your hands on Disney+ as the film is available there.
