10 Characters We Want to See in a Fifth Film: Thor

10 Characters We Want to See in a Fifth Film: Thor ...

This July, Thor: Love and Thunder will be released in cinemas. Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as the thunder god in the upcoming film, Gorr the God Butcher.

While a great deal of Thor's mythology has been covered in the four films that have been released thus far, a good number of actors have yet to make their big screen debuts. Here are just a few of Thor's possible adversaries (and enemies!) from all nine realms.

The Wrecking Crew

Thor has faced many villains throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from aliens to elves, but never before has he faced humans who were gifted superpowers. That's where the Wrecking Crew comes in.

The Wreckers have fought almost every superhero in the Marvel universe, including Thor. A confrontation with the god of thunder seems inevitable, as the quartet prepares to make their MCU debut in She-Hulk.


Thor is no stranger to having loved ones who have tried to assail him, from Loki to Hela. Cul, the god of fear and Thor's uncle, would fit the family mold perfectly.

In 2011's Fear Itselfevent plot, Cul, a villain who can stand toe-to-toe with the Avengers, might be the key to turning a fifth Thor film into an event for generations.


Amora, Thor's renowned sorceress, is a skilled manipulator. At this stage, a live-action recreation of the character seems long overdue.

Amora might be an interesting change of pace for villains in the Thor franchise due to her emphasis on manipulation and mind games. An encounter with the Enchantress might reveal the Asgardian's abilities in action.


Lorelei is the sister of the Enchantress. She shares a lot of her abilities with Amora, but she does have something that her sister does not, that is a prior appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lorelei returning to the MCU to face Thor in the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would be a fantastic comeback to the franchise's earlier years. It would be interesting to see how the character has changed over time.

Silver Surfer

The Silver Surfer, the most well-known herald of Galactus, is one of Marvel's most powerful cosmic characters. While he is mostly associated with the Fantastic Four, he has had more than a few encounters with Odin's son.

A Silver Surfer appearance in a fifth film might be a fantastic comeback for one of Marvel's most well-known characters. Throw in a cameo from Galactus, and you have a recipe for a memorable crossover.


Tyr, the god of war and Thor's older brother, has acted as both a friend and a foe to the Odinson in Asgard's halls.

10 Underappreciated 'Thor' Characters In the Marvel Cinematic Universe

In Thor: The Dark World, the character had a quick appearance, but there's a lot of potential left untapped with him. His background as the god of war might serve as an intriguing parallel to Thor, who began his journey in the first film determined to be a great warrior.


Mephisto, the most devilish creature in Marvel Comics, is a real frightening force. He has haunted the likes of Ghost Rider, the Silver Surfer, and of course, Thor.

Even if the demon was a no-show in WandaVision, a comeback against Thor cannot be completely ruled out. Could you really get any worse than the devil?


Balder the Brave, Thor's half-brother, has been one of Thor's closest friends since the beginning.

It's absurd that Asgard, who is one of Thor's most well-established characters, hasn't been introduced in a film. Balder could show off a side to Asgard that is previously unknown in the films, and deepen the realm's legend as well.


Eric Masterson wore the thunder god's armor for several years back in the nineties before Jane Foster became the Mighty Thor. After the original Thor returned, Masterson became the heroic Thunderstrike, complete with a powerful mace at his side.

A story involving a new character who takes Thor's identity might seem like a rewrite at first glance, but there's still plenty of room to make Masterson's tale unique from Jane's. Hemsworth's journey as Thor may end in a different chapter.

Beta Ray Bill

Beta Ray Bill is a Korbonite who emerged from Walt Simonson's beloved 1980s film on Thor and who proved worthy to wield Thor's hammer. After his initial debut, he was later gifted a hammer of his own, and has gone on to become one of Thor's greatest friends.

Beta Ray Bill is a character that fans and filmmakers have been begging to see in films, especially given his role in Ragnarok. A major role in a fifth film might provide a great way of expanding Thor's cosmic side of the universe.
