‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Is Set To Be a Full-Blown Romance

I mean, it’s in the title. Thor: Love and Thunder, according to Taika Waititi, is going to be a full-blown love story which sounds intriguing, to say the least.

Marvel Studios has tackled a lot of genres but romance hasn’t been one of the franchise’s focal points. There have been some great love stories in the franchise; Tony and Pepper, Steve and Peggy, Wanda and Vision. But that’s honestly about it. That’s why I think it was kind of surprising to everyone that Loki featured a controversial but undoubtedly riveting romance between Loki and Sylvie considering that Marvel doesn’t usually do romance. But it was a nice choice for Loki’s story considering that we’ve already had so many years of content with him, how were the writers going to give him a new motivation outside of wanting to backstab everyone in sight and try to become king? Let him fall in love. Brilliant!

And now it seems that Marvel Studios is ready to tackle the subject of love again with Thor: Love and Thunder which is already looking to be a real treat. Jane Foster will become Mighty Thor, Valkyrie is the ruler of Asgard, Thor is hanging out with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Lady Sif is back to reprise her role in a Marvel movie for the first time since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and Christian Bale is making his Marvel debut as Gorr the God Butcher. The pieces are in place for a great story but the question remains: where will the film’s love story lie?

I already predicted two years ago when Thor: Love and Thunder was announced that the film would probably feature a love triangle between Jane Foster, Thor, and Valkyrie. But now that we know Sif is going to be in the story as well, maybe even she will be added to the equation.

As of right now we know that Jane and Thor parted on somewhat bad terms. They “mutually dumped” one another, meaning they may not be in the mood for rekindling their romantic relationship. In steps Valkyrie whose feelings for Thor have been muted so far but she may have different feelings about Mighty Thor. And Jaimie Alexander has already proclaimed on her Instagram a while back that, considering Valkyrie is looking for a queen, she wants to be said queen. So, yes. There is bound to be lots of love and thunder in this movie and I’m very intrigued to see how Waititi handles a love story.

I can’t wait to eventually see the teaser.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

Ranking the Characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Part 5

It’s the last part of this updated ranking and now we’ve reached my new and improved top ten characters in the MCU moment. Some things will stay the same but there will definitely be some changes so, with no further delay, here are my ten favorite characters.

10. Valkyrie

I’ve said this multiple times but her drunken entrance into the MCU was the instance that made me realize I loved this lady. She wasn’t your typical, flawless heroine who’s eye candy and a potential love interest for the male protagonist. She was a tough, heavy-drinking warrior lady with nice biceps and an even nicer sword/outfit to match.

When Valkyrie made her return in Endgame I loved her even more, specifically with her beautiful Pegasus and new spear. She’s always been one of my favorite characters and now I can’t wait to see her being King of Asgard.

9. Black Panther

King T’Challa is one of the greatest characters ever brought to the big screen. I mean, he’s an African king who just so happens to also be a superhero! How awesome is that?!

To think that Chadwick Boseman won’t be a part of the MCU anymore moving forward due to his passing last August is honestly still one of the most heartbreaking things that could happen. We’ll see how Ryan Coogler handles his death and how it fits into the sequel in a powerful, moving way but he will always remain one of my favorite Marvel characters for his epic contribution from 2016-19.

My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Female Characters: Updated

Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!

10. Agnes

WandaVision' Broke the MCU's Reality and It Was Very On-Brand

Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.

By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.

Ranking the Marvel Heroines; From Worst to Best: Updated

When I first created this post I was still a month and a half away from seeing Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, since then, we have had three new heroines join the party; Captain Marvel, Wasp, and Pepper Potts, meaning this list needs an update pronto. Enjoy my new ranking of the Marvel heroines!

15. Agent 13

I didn’t realize how much I liked Sharon Carter until it was announced that she may play a role in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier series on Disney+. I was legitimately excited. At that moment I realized just how much she had grown on me over the years. I would probably place her higher if she wasn’t against such stiff competition, hence the last place on this list.

14. Agent Peggy Carter

I like Peggy because she isn’t just a pretty face. She’s also tough, strong-willed, and she proved that she was more than just a love interest/damsel-in-distress. I appreciate that. It’s a shame that she only made one major appearance in the franchise in Captain America: The First Avenger but she definitely won me over.

The Heroic Women of Marvel

Here’s a look back at the wonderful and diverse women who comprise the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Infinity Saga has come to an end with Avengers: EndgameEndgame truly was a culmination of the previous twenty-one movies before the Avengers finale, highlighting nearly every character that has placed a stamp on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the powerful women.

Today I will celebrate these extraordinary heroines by looking at their thrilling involvement in Endgame and where their stories are heading for the future. Enjoy!

The Ancient One

The Ancient One’s role in Endgame was slight but impactful as we got to see her protecting the New York Sanctum during the Battle of New York and schooling Bruce Banner in the seriousness of tampering with the past. It was delighting to see her again after her being gone for so many years and even though she is a permanently dead character her wisdom will always be felt in the MCU.

Valkyrie: The Kings of Asgard?: Chapter Eleven

The storm lasted for three days. In the meantime, the four challengers, Valkyrie, Grunt, Hilda, and Maan rested and healed from their injuries. Now, under a cloudless blue sky, with the sun shining more beautifully than the Asgardians had seen in years, the crowning of a King had arrived.

Before the Great Hall, the whole of New Asgard’s population stood, awaiting their first female King in their people’s history. Valkyrie stood inside the Great Hall, her heart pounding in her breast as she prepared for the first time to stand before her fellow Asgardians as their official ruler.
