Thor: Love and Thunder appeared to be a foregone conclusion. Following 2017’s wildly entertaining Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi is back in charge, with Natalie Portman making an epic comeback to the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe after a nine-year absence and Chris Hemsworth’s Asgardian Avenger having regained his adorably hilarious rhythm.
Unexpectedly, the 29th MCU film, which opens in cinemas on July 8, falls short. According to critics, Thor’s fourth solo adventure spreads itself too thin and comes out as superficial since it tries to strike a balance between comedy and drama and combines several great comedic themes into a single plot. No matter how disheartening it is to listen to all those disappointing reviews, fans are still enthusiastic to appear in flocks in the theatres and make it a blockbuster. However, for those who want to watch it over again for how great it might turn out, we know when it will be available for streaming on Disney+.
When will Thor: Love and Thunder premiere on Disney+?
Due to the erratic contracts and agreements between Disney and independent platforms like Netflix, it was previously extremely difficult to forecast when a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie will be available for streaming. These release windows are slightly more regular or at the very least comparable now that Disney has its own platform. It is easy to look at each Phase Four film’s individual release dates to get an idea of when Thor: Love and Thunder will be accessible.
As a part of Disney+’s premier access program, Black Widow initially went directly to streaming, but it only remained there for 30 days. It took an incredible 89 days from its July 9th release date for it to be permanently available on the streamer on October 6. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings took 70 days, Eternals took 68 days, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness took 47 days.
However, Black Widow’s 89 days will probably not be exceeded by Thor: Love and Thunder, thus an approximate frame may be between August 19 (42 days) and October 5th (89 days). The best guess would be a time frame of about 70 days, which would result in arrival on September 16. The release window might be the shortest yet if it follows the constantly eroding trend and occurs before August 19. Don’t anticipate another sharp decrease in the release window; at the absolute least, the movie will need to remain in cinemas for two to four weeks to reach maximum profit.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to hit theatres on July 8, 2022.
