​Thor Could Be Set To Join Guardians Of The Galaxy For The Third Film

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE INCLUDES AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILERS. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

Just because it's the end of the universe as we know it doesn't mean that life won't go on. Especially with a franchise as successful as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has been busting all sorts of records in recent years.

And while 2018's Avengers: Infinity War saw the destruction of half of all life in the MCU at the hands of the evil Thanos, the superheroes (or what was left of them) reassembled to right those evils. Now, it seems that Thor is set to become a member of the Guardians Of The Galaxy.

It looks set to be a tale of redemption for the Norse God Of Thunder - played by Australian actor Chris Hemsworth - who, brought on by a bout of guilt and despair, spiralled into something of an alcoholic and lost his god-like appearance.

Thanks to the Hulk and Rocket, however, he found himself again in Endgame, returning to Asgard with those two in the hopes of retrieving the reality stone - something that made him understand just how important he is to the Avengers team.

And at the end of Endgame, Thor handed in his notice -metaphorically, of course - as an Avenger and joined the Guardians Of The Galaxy in an attempt to find his true self. After all, even superhero gods can be emotionally vulnerable. Which is good news for the rest of us, really.

He dubbed the new group on the ship the 'Asgardians of the Galaxy', which is not just a very funny pun, but also the name of another Marvel superhero team. Will they make an appearance in the new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie? You never know.

That's not the only potential storyline that could develop out of the ending of Endgame, either.

Even though Chris Hemsworth said back in 2018 that he was done with Marvel, there are also rumours that he could return, alongside Tessa Thompson, for a Thor 4. Of course, beyond that being a bit of a fun tongue twister, that's all speculation.
