Thor: Love and Thunder is one of this year’s biggest movies but when can Disney Plus viewers expect to tune into it?
It’s been over a month since Thor: Love and Thunder electrified movie theaters all over the world. Like all Marvel Studios movies, it electrified the box office as well, surpassing Thor: Ragnarok to become the most successful movie in the Thor film series thus far.The Marvel Cinematic Universe movie reunites Chris Hemsworth with Natalie Portman after the latter returns to the franchise following an absence in the third film. This time, though, Jane Foster became the Mighty Thor. And the pair were joined by the returning Tessa Thompson as King Valkyrie, while Christian Bale made his MCU debut as the chilling Gorr the God Butcher.
At $700 million-plus, Love and Thunder has already made its mark as one of the most successful films of 2022, and it will no doubt set it sights on achieving similar levels of success on Disney Plus in the near future. On that note, just when does it arrive on the streaming service?
Thor: Love and Thunder release date predictions
Thor: Love and Thunder is rumored to premiere on Disney Plus before the end of August. While not outright confirmed, the MCU movies usually enjoy a 45-day theatrical release window before premiering on the streaming service shortly after that.
This is a strategy that studios have put in motion since the pandemic, and Disney have successfully done so with previous Marvel releases Shang-Chi And the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. With all of that in mind, the film could be released as early as mid-late August. Taking into account that Marvel Studios often gravitate towards Wednesday releases, August 24 would be the earliest possibility. Then again, with Disney Plus Day coming up in September, it’s always possible that they could it until then. It’s important to wait for official confirmation from Disney Plus or Marvel Studios before getting too excited. After all, Love and Thunder was not referenced in the streamer’s August line-up when it was released last month and we have yet to get so much as a tease from them.
