The last time we were able to see a movie starring entirely Thor was in 2017 when Thor: Ragnarok was released, and after The Avengers: Endgame, the fate of the Asgardian god has taken many, many turns, so much so that it is in Thor: Love and Thunder, when he finally meets again with his beloved Jane Foster turned into Mighty Thor.
The box office figures for the first weekend after the film’s release have turned out to be a complete success for Marvel. In fact, according to several sources it is estimated a profit close to 150 million dollars only in the United States, that in the first three days of release. Although the truth is that this was already expected because the film’s directors themselves expected earnings of between 135 and 145 million.
This is how Taika Waititi’s production has managed to position itself as the best release so far this year, being surpassed only by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Jurassic World: Dominion. And speaking of rankings, if we are talking about the Marvel Universe, Love and Thunder has achieved the twelfth best domestic release in all of Marvel Studios, being placed between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Iron Man 2. It has even surpassed the Thor franchise itself, as this new film has easily placed as the best, surpassing Thor Ragnarok which had been the most acclaimed to date.
It is worth noting that the film’s director himself stated that it had been his craziest production, in which he had thrown in everything and no sense at all, until he had it as if that was the natural course of the story. Love and Thunder pushes the boundaries of self-irony and self-parody, something that fits very well with the Thor image.
According to the estimates of the fans themselves, they have calculated that it took 45 days for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to be released on Disney+, so if Love and Thunder follows the same pattern, probably the closest date to the release on that platform will be Monday, August 22, although if it is extended as it has happened in other films to 70 days, we could have the film online around September 16.
