The best of news and the worst of news.
There are no story details available for Thor 4 yet, but it’s likely that the plot will involve Hemsworth’s Thor, Tessa Thompson‘s Valkyrie, and the survivors of Asgard, who are now living in Norway.  There’s also a chance the plot will carry over from the next Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, as the conclusion of Endgame saw Thor blasting off into space with the Guardians.
