Thor Movies In Order

Thor is a Marvel superhero that made his first appearance in comic books dating all the way back to the 1960s. Since then he has been adopted by the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is the subject of two movies, with a third movie on the way later in 2017. Born the son of Odin, Thor is next in line to be king of Asgard, defender of the nine realms. Catch the journey as young Thor takes the reign of king and learns a variety of tough lessons along the way.

The two movies in this trilogy that have been released so far have been wildly successful for Marvel. The original flick in 2011 earned its makers nearly a half billion dollars at the box office worldwide. The second film in series was even more successful than the last for a total of $644 million in worldwide box office sales. As the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe increases, I can only guess that the third movie which is scheduled for release November 3rd will be the biggest earner yet.

If you’re wondering if you should watch the Thor movies in order, then the answer is a resounding yes. Each movie builds off the plot line of the last movie, and you learn more about the characters each time. The first movie sets a lot of background information and context which is needed to understand subsequent movies. With that said, each movie does contain its own plot line and can be watched separately. However, I would not recommend watching them out of order, and for maximum enjoyment they should definitely be watched in order. The other thing to consider when watching the Thor movie series is the Marvel Cinematic Universe order because they are also part of that larger series as well. If you’re a big fan of the Marvel comics, you might be interested in watching that entire series in order. In that case, the first Thor movie is actually the fourth movie in that series.

Along with its massive box office success, the makers of the Thor movies have earned themselves numerous awards, and had great success among both critics and fans. The 2011 film won three awards, two Empire awards and a Saturn. Both movies received numerous nominations from Teen Choice Awards, BET, MTV, People’s Choice, and more. Both of the current Thor movies earned themselves a 7 out of 10 fan rating on IMDB. Both films received good critic scores on Rotten Tomatoes with a 77% and a 66% respectively. Fan scoring on Rotten Tomatoes was similar to the IMDB rankings with a 76% and a 77%.

Whether you’re a fan of action movies, sci-fi, or adventure, the Thor movie series has something for you. No matter if you’re just watching the Thor movies, watching the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, or just casually watching a single movie in the series, critics and fans agree that Thor has something for everyone. If you’re just entering the franchise then buckle up, this latest release in November is sure to be the best one yet.
