When we last see Thor, he was hitching a ride with the Guardians of the Galaxy to find his purpose. However, during the recent SDCC panel, it was revealed that Thor: Love and Thunder would release before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 which confused some fans. So much so that one of them asked James Gunn directly on his Instagram page. He answered and clarified that Thor: Love and Thunder takes place before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in the timeline.
This means that Chris Hemsworth will not appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but it does indicate that the Guardians will at least make a brief appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder. It’s unknown whether this was always the plan or that the delay with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may have changed it. It could also be that Thor was never meant to tag along with the Guardians for an extended period of time.
How do you feel about this? Are you disappointed that Thor won’t be teaming up with the Guardians?
