Do fans really want a Thor 5? The reactions are mixed

Warning: This article contains minor spoilers for Thor: Love and Thunder.

Marvel fans took to social media following the release of Thor: Love and Thunder to share their opinions on whether or not there should be a Thor 5.

We asked you, the IGN audience, that very question on Twitter, and the results of that poll have been very mixed so far. That The poll is currently open for votingbut at the time of writing, 42.7% of people have pledged their support for a fifth film, while 30.6% of people think it’s time to hit the hammer on the franchise, and others are undecided.

At the end of the Thor: Love and Thunder credits, Marvel confirmed that “Thor will be returning to the MCU in the future.” This revelation instilled hope in many fans about the possibility of a fifth adventure, especially given the mid-credits scene in Thor 4, although some support came with the caveat that a different approach would have to be taken with the next one.

People who voted against a fifth Thor movie balanced the debate by sharing their opinions on why they don’t want the franchise to continue. Some people agreed that direction needed to be changed as they aren’t interested in seeing another comedic hoopla starring the God of Thunder, while others simply felt the story was complete.

Waititi himself has been thoughtful when it comes to Thor’s character lately, admitting that the latest iteration isn’t necessarily what fans would want. That hasn’t stopped him from getting involved with the franchise, however, as he recently told Insiders he’d be willing to direct a hypothetical fifth installment as long as Chris Hemsworth returns.

Whatever happens, it’s clear that even if Thor: Love and Thunder has successfully raked in an opening weekend of $302 million, MCU Phase 4 needs direction fast.
