This is why the Wakanda Avengers during Avengers: Infinity WaThey were shocked and impressed by the reappearance of Thor during the Battle of Wakanda. Not only did Thor make his grand entrance, but he had brought very strange friends with him.
Why was Thor’s entry so important?
In normal Earth time, there were only five months between Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. As impressive as Thor’s entry was, it was even more powerful for the characters than it was for the audience, as most of his fellow Avengers hadn’t seen Thor in years. For them, he disappeared after Age of Ultron, and he was visibly absent from Captain America: civil war. In other words, he had to face his own problems.
Fans discussed the entry on Reddit, saying not only that it was slow in coming, but it must have looked weird since “he shows up without Mjolnir and standing next to a human tree and d ‘a raccoon with a gun. Another fan said, “Well, that certainly explains Natasha’s” WTF “expression. Surely the beard and the haircut threw them away.
Yet another fan rang: “The way he bursts in (pun intended) is one of the few times when I’m all pumped up and full of adrenaline all the time! Whenever I see it. Top 5 moment in all MCUs. And that ties into a whole other discussion.
What are the other great Marvel entries?
In another Reddit thread, fans have been talking about Marvel’s grand entrances, which means not only the first appearance of a character, but any sort of entrance. The re-entry is particularly dramatic in the MCU, and fans thought there was no more dramatic entry than that of End of Game where the dusty heroes came back to fight another day.
There was a poll in the discussion thread, and second place after the portal scene was lightning by Thor Wakanda, and third place was Captain America in Edinburgh, also from Infinity War. Spider-Man’s entry into Civil war (Underoos!) And Captain Marvel return when she crosses Thanos’ ship in Endgame.
Another fan mentioned, “I think my favorite MCU entry of all time is the Guardians of the Galaxy flyby over to ‘Rubberband Man’ in Infinity War. The fade in of music, the exploded entrance to the ship, seeing the whole crew so dope. Their interactions with Thor also had the best chemistry, always super excited for Thor 4: Love and thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. “
Could Thor’s next entry be really silly?
Fans were particularly delighted with Thor’s next chapter when director Taika Waititi “leaked” pages of supposed script from Love and thunder on social media.
He was a week and a half late for the April Fool, but most fans understood that the pages were a joke because, as IGN points out, “Taika Waititi is 80% troll and 20% chaos demon pure. Among other things, the “flight” resulted in Tony Stark returning from the dead.
Waititi said the script was in its fourth or fifth draft, saying he “can’t wait to do it” because it has become “so exaggerated now, in the best way possible.” This part was probably authentic.
Fans will have to wait a little longer than expected to see this film. It was due out in November 2021, but a tsunami of pandemic release date changes pushed Thor’s fourth film to 2022.
If not already done, Reddit will likely be buzzing soon with suggestions that Waititi should actually turn these pages just for smiles and laughs.
