The new What If…? episode brings in Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as the lead. In this
universe, he happens to be the only child of Odin and Frigga. His childhood turned him into a party monster and voilà he steps on earth. Thor and his friends visit Midgard aka Earth to have a huge party gala. Not to forget his friend gang intergalactic beings including Drax, Nebula, Loki (now a Frost giant), and even Howard the Duck!
On Earth, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and her intern Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) were expecting an alien invasion, so they are shocked to see a hulky, good-looking God leading others to have fun! “Feel in love at the first sight”, perfect phrase to retrospect the beginning of the lovers. Jane hooks up with Thor soon, getting immersed in the party spirit.
In the last scene of the episode chemistry breezes at another level between Thor and Jane. “I’ll call you cools!“ says Thor. “No it’s not cools”, replies Jane leading to Thor confess his love for Jane and ask her out on a date. Also, he knows a whole planet of Unicorns!
The previous two movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe couldn’t conjure but hopefully, we would get to see more in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
Although, head over to Disney +, if you haven’t yet watched this funny bones episode.
