When Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor was tapped to direct Thor: The Dark World, we all expected the God of Thunder's world to be injected with some of that Westeros grittiness. Unfortunately, the 2013 release was a disappointment.
Taika Waititi drastically reinvented the hero in the colourful Thor: Ragnarok, putting a comedic spin on the Asgardian's corner of the MCU. Lightning didn't strike twice, though, and last year's Thor: Love and Thunder was nothing if not hit-and-miss.
Another fresh start is desperately needed and a fan-made poster for Thor 5 - titled Thor: Battle of Gods - puts a dark new spin on the iconic character.
As well as embracing Thor's Viking roots, we see a supporting cast comprised of The Mighty Thor, Hercules, and even Loki. This sort of epic approach to the hero might be exactly what's needed...assuming it ever becomes a reality courtesy of Marvel Studios.
The trades recently debunked reports a fifth instalment is in the works, while Disney CEO Bob Iger has suggested now might be the time for Marvel Studios to move on from making sequels to sequels.
Thor: Love and Thunder wrapped up by setting the stage for the title hero to clash with Hercules, but that's a story we could eventually see play out elsewhere.
Whatever the case may be, another Thor movie hasn't been officially announced and it will likely be in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty we next see the Odinson blast into action. Perhaps Destin Daniel Cretton can reinvent the hero?
Are you hoping Thor 5 becomes a reality?
