Chris Hemsworth is now one of the only original MCU founding fathers still in the franchise, and his fourth outing as Thor will see him become the first star to be given more than three solo movies. That is an achievement in itself, but it is even more impressive considering Thor: The Dark World is still seen by many as the weakest movie in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, a change of style and direction in Thor: Ragnarok saw Thor’s popularity soar, and now the same team is back together for Thor: Love and Thunder. Now Hemsworth has been reflecting on “the strongest Avenger” being the first to have a fourth movie all to himself.

Thor: Love and Thunder picks up the story from the final scenes of Avengers: Endgame, when Thor decided to leave with the Guardians of the Galaxy after leaving New Asgard in the capable charge of Valkyrie. In an interview with Fandango, Hemsworth reacted to being the leader of the fourquel brigade and explained how he has loved rebuilding the character. He said:

While Thor has been a trailblazer for those MCU stars who want to make it to a fourth solo movie, it is not going to be too long before his achievement is mirrored by other characters from the franchise. Tom Holland is the most likely candidate to not only match but overtake Thor’s run, with a new trilogy of Spider-Man movies already being planned between Sony and Marvel Studios. This would make Holland the only other original star to get a fourth movie playing his MCU character.

Of course, Captain America 4 is also being developed, but this time around, the title character will be played by the new Cap of the MCU, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson. Having taken over the Captain America mantel at the end of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, he will now get the chance to prove his mettle on the big screen in a new Captain America movie sometime, probably in Phase 5.

Currently, there are several other characters about to make their third outings, such as Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, but with so many new characters being developed and only so much time to be able to tell the stories, it could be a case that many future stars of the MCU find it a difficult task following the likes of Thor and Spider-Man to four solo movies.
