Like all Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, “Thor: Love and Thunder” has post-credits scenes. Focus on the two question sequences. Warning, this article contains SPOILERS!
Thor: Love and Thunder – the return of Taika Waititi
five years ago Thor: RagnarokDIRECTORS Taika Waititi is back behind the camera for Thor: Love and Thunder. A pretty special new film from Jane Foster, the star played by Natalie Portman, returned to the MCU. However the actress had already hung up the role in 2013 after the events of Thor: The Dark World. In this new episode, Taika Waititi recounts the reunion between Thor and Jane. Based on the comics by Jason Aaron, Thor: Love and Thunder recounts Thor’s crazy adventures with Mighty Thor, the new goddess of thunder. Together, they have to face Gorr, the powerful antagonist played by Christian Bale.
As with every MCU movie, Thor: Love and Thunder offers his fans two consecutive post-credits. We can understand these famous sights and what they mean for the future.
Scene 1: the introduction of Hercules
This is not at all surprising. The safest fans already know thatHercules will be introduced to Thor: Love and Thunder. Already, trailers have been revealed the presence of Zeus in the story. The God of gods, composed by Russell Crowe, apparently had many children. One of them is the mighty Hercules. The latter has a recurring role in the Marvel Comics universe (more so with his father for that matter). An exceptional warrior, with ten times the strength, he will always play in the highest categories and facing very powerful characters like Thing, Thor, and even the Hulk.
The presence of Zeus in Thor: Love and Thunder suggests that the MCU will eventually introduce Hercules to the connected universe. This is, logically, what the first post-credits scene did. That was discovered by the audience Zeus was saved from his wounds and asked his son to avenge him on Thor. In fact, during the film, Thor confronts Zeus and wounds him almost to death. The rest of their game must be settled by Hercules, who seems determined to pursue the Asgardian god.
Welcome Brett Glodstein
This scene is also an opportunity for the public to get to know the actor who was hired to play Hercules at MCU. So this is a question of Brett Goldstein, British comedian best known for the small screen. He especially appears in series like Derek, UNCLE or even more recently Ted Lasso. Hercules ’role should give him great motivation.
Hercules was introduced in 1965 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The character is clearly self -motivated Corresponding to Greek mythology. In the comics, he is a member of many big teams like the Avengers or Defenders. He even had his own series in 2008 called The Incredible Hercules. Hercules, in Marvel comics, is often presented as a bon vivant, an inveterate flirt and a good companion to adventure. To see if it’s the same in the next movies.
Scene 2: The future of Jane Foster
In Jason Aaron’s comics, Jane Foster end -stage cancer. And each of her transformations into a goddess of thunder weakens her even more. A situation similarly taken by Taika Waititi. So, at the end of the film, the hero loses his life on the battlefield due to his illness. But according to the Norse religion, Brave warriors who lost their lives on the battlefield had the right to enter Valhalla. (the equivalent of paradise). Others were sent to the Kingdom of Hela.
The second post-credits scene on Thor: Love and Thunder so give it your all first look at Valhalla at MCU. Jane Foster came to the entrance of this Asgardian paradise and was received by Heimdall personally. The opportunity for MCU fans to see comedian Idris Elba again in the skin of the former Asgard keeper, was introduced earlier. Thor, killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
It can be inferred from this scene that all the Asgardian warriors lost their lives at the time. Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War is in the mysterious Valhalla (even if the only characters on screen are Jane and Heimdall). Unfortunately, Taika Waititi doesn’t reveal much about this place, which above all gives the impression of a good reserve of characters, if Marvel had to resurrect someone.
