Thor: Love & Thunder Will Be Set Before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

James Gunn has confirmed a bit of MCU chronology, revealing that Thor: Love & Thunder will be set before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. A fan posted a screencap on Twitter of a small exchange featuring Gunn, in which he confirmed the two films’ chronal relationship to each other.

The news isn’t entirely surprising, to be fair. The fourth Thor film is releasing as part of Phase Four, while the third Guardians film isn’t out until Phase Five (or later) comes around. And we don’t actually know yet whether Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will actually feature Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, though he was last seen leaving with Star-Lord and company. One would imagine it’s entirely possible that Thor got dropped off somewhere so he could end up being on his own for the Thor film, and then could rendezvous back with the grew of the Benatar in time for their third entry.

Either way, we know Thor is coming in 2021 and will star Natalie Portman as Jane Foster taking on Thor’s mantle, Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson and Valkyrie.
