‘Bring Him Back for Thor 5’: Fans Demand Kenneth Branagh to Return After Taika Waititi’s Disappointing Love and Thunder

Fans Demand Kenneth Branagh to Return After Taika Waititis Disappointing Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder have just been released in the theaters and the response received by it clearly shows the disappointment on the face of the fans. With complaints regarding excessive usage of comedy and weak storyline, fans are now again reconsidering the thought of accepting back Taika Waititi for the next Thor movie. Instead, according to many Kenneth Branagh’s return would be perfect for the fifth installment.

Thor’s journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been quite an interesting one. From different directors changing from time to time to a complete new Makeover on the hands of Taika Waititi, he has seen a lot. The initial movies were directed by Kenneth Branagh and Alan Taylor. While the first movie received decent reviews from the critics as well as the audience, the second one The Dark World did no better.

Just when Taika Waititi came on board and took over the franchise, the God of Thunder was shown in a completely new way and we got a blockbuster in the form of Ragnarok. With Ragnarok, Thor was presented in a new and more humorous way and the movie’s tone was found to be poles apart from what we got in the previous two movies.

So when it was announced that Taika Waititi will return for a fourth movie, everyone was highly anticipating the same magic he created in Ragnarok but the results came out to be quite contrary.

Thor 4 coined as Love and Thunder focuses on the God of Thunder teaming up with Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor, Valkyrie, and Korg to defeat the menacing Gorr, the God Butcher played by none other than Christian Bale. This movie disappointed the fans on several levels.

From issues such as over-use of humor, lack of a proper storyline, and not a memorable villain this movie suffers from numerous fallacies. But with a “Thor will Return” message at the end of the movie, the fans still have some hope for it but there’s a catch. Now they are demanding to bring back Kenneth Branagh as the director so that he can re-induce that seriousness in the franchise.

The fans want the Thor 1 director to return to the franchise and add some seriousness to it. There has been a series of tweets from the fandom who heartily wish for the Hercule Poirot actor to return to the Director’s chair.

It seems that after the disappointment faced by Love and Thunder, it will really take a good move for the next installment to bounce back and provide yet another Blockbuster.

Thor: Love and Thunder has been released on 8th July, 2022.
