Although he didn't appear in Homecoming, is Thor in Spider-Man: Far From Home?
Is Thor in Spider-Man: Far From Home? Considering 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming saw Iron Man drop in every once in a while, fans are wondering whether any other Avengers could swing by to help save the day after Tony Stark's tragic sacrifice.
There are a number of characters that many would want to see check in with Peter Parker after the fourth Avengers instalment; however, Thor will be at the top of many lists. Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder was brilliantly subverted in this year's Endgame, arguably delivering his most satisfying turn as the hero to date.
We're all ready to see the characters return, but will the MCU kill two birds with one stone?
Spider-Man: Far From Home will follow up the events of Avengers: Endgame and conclude the MCU's groundbreaking phase three.
The film was Marvel Studios' most emotionally devastating movie to date. We bid final farewells, and in the wake of fallen heroes, characters like Spidey are due to take on greater responsibilities than ever before.
It's been one hell of a ride, and it's still a little surprising that a Spider-Man instalment is set to usher in the fourth phase. Yet, there's sure to be some hard-hitting surprises in store for the web-slinger's second solo outing.
Could Thor's presence be one of them?
Is Thor in Spider-Man: Far From Home?
If you cast your minds back, Thor boarded the Guardians' ship in the last act of Endgame, so it looks as though he'll be with them for the foreseeable future.
That makes it unlikely that he'll be in Far From Home - however, it's now confirmed.
As reported by Cinema Blend, Tom Holland provided a hilarious response when asked about Thor' absence in the forthcoming film by Hemsworth himself. "'Cause, you know, it was really for the like front-running Avengers in this movie," jokes Holland. "It's all about kind of who's going to step up and take RDJ's spot."
The pair share great chemistry, so Hemsworth obviously had a similarly witty comeback; "Which is why I ask, 'Where is Thor in this one?'"
Spider-Man: Far From Home release date
It looks like the friendly neighbourhood Spidey will really have to step up to the challenges of superhero life without his mentor in this one. He's been great throughout Captain America: Civil War up until Endgame, but it really feels like this will be his most important venture to date.
Fortunately, it's just around the corner!
Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into UK cinemas on Tuesday, July 2nd 2019.
