Where to, Thor?
It’s been a short while since the release of Thor: Ragnarok, and with the unending barrage of movies coming based on superhero franchises coming out in just a matter of months, with Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War just being a couple of them, it’s easy to overlook the individual properties that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. One such character, of course, is the god of thunder.
By now, you probably know that Asgard has been destroyed by Surtur, which leaves all its citizens in a nomadic state as they try to find a new place to settle in. However, the mid-credits scene reveals that the ship that Thor, Loki, and the absolutely amazing Korg are on have been harangued by a larger spacecraft, which may or may not belong to Thanos. I say “not” because it is entirely possible that this could be the scene that leads up to Thor meeting the Guardians of the Galaxy. After all, the MCU’s movies don’t exactly happen at the same time per phase.

But, enough about Infinity War and the inevitable nerd ejaculations we all might get once the movie’s released. I want to talk about where Thor’s corner of the MCU might be heading after Infinity War. So, if you’re willing to stick around, allow me to tell you my thoughts on the matter.
First, it is possible that Thor and all the other citizens of Asgard could be making a new home on Earth after Infinity War. That is, if there would still be an Earth after Thanos shits all over it, giving the studio an excuse to do a reboot. But, reboot or not, it is possible that the Asgardians could start making a new Asgrad in Broxton (or was it Braxton?), Oklahoma the same way the comic version of these characters have back in the mid-2000s.

But, let’s consider that the reboot would be harder, that it’s going to make more significant changes to the MCU. In this case, there is a possibility that the company would be setting up a new cash cow in the form of a female Thor, like the one the comics is desperately trying to milk as of this writing. Now, this is likely, considering that first, Chris Hemsworth might have had enough of the role by the time the fourth Avengers movie comes out, and second, that the studio is always looking for new bait that could latch on to nerds with ease. Hey, Thor but with boobs? I think I just heard a thousand nerds spewing their ill seed all over their underoos.
Finally, although there is very little chance of this happening, the Thor side of the MCU could simply vanish once the reboot happens. Like I said, this is highly unlikely: Marvel won’t find ways to lessen the potential profit they could get from their nerds.
In any case, let’s just wait for Infinity War for now. Hopefully, it’s going to live up to the hype (I’m betting it will).
