After putting an end to Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 with Spider-Man: Far From Home, MCU is all set to release the new phase of its movies and shows with the appearance of brand new characters. While the speculation about the fifth installment of the Avengers series is yet to be confirmed, rumor also said that Thor might be the only original Avenger to be included in the much-awaited sequel. Here is how it works!

Avengers 5 Theory Thor Only Original Member

Being introduced in his first solo film Thor (2011), the Asgardian god of thunder soon joined the Avengers in The Avengers (2012). He continued to make 2 more other solo films Thor: The Dark World (2013) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017) apart from making appearances in other Avengers installments including Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Despite his rough start, Thor quickly carved his niche in the MCU and won the hearts of millions of fans. By featuring in the much-anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder which is slated to release in 2022, Thor will be the first MCU ever to make it to the fourth solo movie. Although Marvel hasn’t made it official about the next installment of Avengers in its upcoming phase 4 if the speculation turns out to be true, Thor will be the only original member of the legendary team to live on and we have reasons to believe in.

Thor is likely to continue his journey in the next Avengers movie

It can be seen that almost all of the Avenger team members put an end to their stories in Endgame, some are tragic, some not. While Tony Stark sacrificed his life for the world, Steve Rogers found himself next to Peggy Carter, passing his mantle to Sam Wilson (Falcon). Hawkeye will walk his own path in a Disney_ TV show alongside Hawkeye while Hulk's future is unknown due to the complicated issue with copyrights.

Meanwhile, Thor fought back to the inner-demon, found his herotic self and was seen ready to take on a new adventure at the ending of Endgame. All of the mentioned reasons make Thor the most promising MCU Avenger who is possible to push it to the limit and Thor: Love and Thunder is just a good start of his new journey.

Avengers 5 needs at least one original team member

It will be reasonable for the sequel of Avengers series to start with an original team member who the audience has been familiar with and remind them of the legendary team. In addition to that, the next-gen of Avengers will also need a mentor or leader who can help the whole superhero squad. The appearance of Thor will not only drive fans nostalgic and keep the Avengers 5 connected to the old team but also entertain the audience with his sense of humor.

As all of his Avenger peers like Ironman, Hawkeye, Captain America, and Black Widow put their superhero careers to an end in an Avengers movie, we have reason to expect that the end of Thor will also be seen in another Avenger installment. While speculation has been doing the rounds that the God of Thunder will give his mantle to Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder, many of MCU fans still hold a strong belief that Thor will give off his final appearance in an Avenger movie just like other team members did.

As Thor is the MCU character who has the most promising future in the upcoming phase 3, his journey shouldn’t be stopped with Thor: Love and Thunder. However, what is the future of Thor, the question is yet to be unfolded.
