With a decade of filmmaking under the studios’ belt, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a well-oiled machine. With directors tasked with introducing a slew of heroes before they would eventually crossover in The Avengers the phase one of Marvel Comic Universe had humble roots.

The original Thor movie was directed by Kenneth Branagh. with Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, and now Branagh has spoken about the franchise’s growth through time the franchise and the character took a serious pivot.

A ton of world-building to do in the first Thor movie, in particular, the family issues shared between the title character, Loki, and Odin could be done by Kenneth Branagh.

Recently the character has taken a more zany and hilarious turn which will continue when Taika Waititi returns to the franchise with Thor: Love and Thunder.

The director said about the character that In a way, I think we put in some emotional ballast at the front of the story that means he could bounce around and develop in the way that he has and rather likes all of the extraordinary ways that the Thor comics do.

There’s an amazing diversity of story and character development inside 50-odd years of comics. The films are now doing it with the character.

The director of the film very well understands the comic book characters can be changed on the page and sees that the same concept applies to the Thor film franchise. The way the characters and emotions from the sequels that would follow would be shaped will be determined by the director.

The expected release date of the film is February 11th. 2022. In the MCU Chris Hemsworth’s character is making history as the first character to get a fourth solo movie, with Thor: Love and Thunder as well as we may see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. An appearance was made by the Guardians of the Galaxy.
