Played by Chris Hemsworth, the character has lead three solo movies in the MCU and each of them are chock-full of Easter eggs! Check out the Easter eggs from the Thor movies via the link below!
The first Thor movie, the fourth film in the MCU, arrived in May of 2011 and marked Hemsworth’s debut as the title hero. Joining him in the film were Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Kat Dennings as Darcy, with Rene Russo as Frigga, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. The film also marked the debut of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, appearing in the scene where Thor attempts to steal back his hammer. Kenneth Branagh directed the movie.
Thor‘s sequel, Thor: The Dark World, was released in November of 2013, the first time that Marvel Studios released a movie in the later half of the year. Hemsworth returned and faced off against Christopher Eccleston as Malekith, the leader of the Dark Elves. The sequel was directed by Alan Taylor of Game of Thrones.
Finally, Thor: Ragnarok debuted four years later in November of 2017 and served as the most radical departure of any Marvel Studios movie. Directed by New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, the film sees Hemsworth teaming up with Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk, to take on both Jeff Goldblum’s The Grandmaster and Cate Blanchett’s Hela.
