Recent rumors regarding “Thor: Ragnarok” is hinting that we might bid farewell to Chris Hemsworth and say hello to a new God of Thunder. If we were to look at the comic books and connect it to the rumors and to the MCU’s current story line, then we might just see Jane, Sif or Beta Ray Bill becoming the new God of Thunder. But it solely depends on which comic book plot Marvel decides to use for the movie.

We all know, from issue number 7 of Marvel’s “Original Sin” that Thor loses the right to hold Mjolnir. This incident gives the chance for a new “Thor” comic book to start, a story line wherein the power and title of Thor is bestowed to a woman, namely Jane Foster (but if Marvel puts Sif instead then that’s fine as well), as reported by ComicBook. This is one of the most popular rumor surrounding the plot of the upcoming “Thor” movie, but how this would contribute to the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe is yet to be seen.
Another rumored replacement character for Thor is Beta Ray Bill. This rumor is driven by how Bill’s introductory story fits well with the God of Thunder’s chaotic vision because Bill’s introduction to the MCU also means the entry of fire demon Surtur. This demon aims destruction of Asgard, which doesn’t just highlight Thor’s vision in “Age of Ultron,” but it also follows the events after “Captain America: Civil War.” In addition, given that Kevin Feige revealed that “Thor 3” has an important role for Phase Three, the war between Surtur and the Asgardians would give Thanos the chance to steal the space stone, as reported by Movie Pilot.
Ragnarok, when seen as a person rather than an event, is actually Thor’s clone. He was created by Tony Stark, Mister Fantastic of the “Fantastic Four,” and Henry Pym (or so we are led to believe) right after the superhero registration act became law.
Though Ragnarok was defeated during the events in the “Civil War,” he was reactivated by Loki via a reset code planted by Henry Pym, who was actually a skrull impostor known as Criti Noll. The clone wreaked havoc in Asgard and the God of Thunder was tasked to rebuild Asgard again.
However, even if this proposition looks highly promising, some views state that this event is unlikely to happen. Their key arguments are the following: First, Chris Hemsworth does not appear in the list of cast for “Civil War.” Second, we’re also missing the central figures of Reed Richards and the younger Hank Pym in the MCU. Finally, the disaster from creating sentient beings in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” should have taught Tony Stark to be a little more cautious when creating something.
