UPDATE: Aug. 22, 2022, 2:28 p.m. GMT Disney+ confirmed in a tweet that Thor: Love and Thunder will be available for streaming on Sept. 8.
When is Thor: Love and Thunder going to be available for streaming, and why won’t you give us a date, Disney?
That’s the question that plagued Marvel fans more than a month after the new chapter in the Thor saga pummelled its way into theatres. Disney, however, still hadn’t released a streaming date. But that changed on Monday,
Disney on Monday announced Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive on Disney+ on September 8. The release window is comparable to recent cinematic releases that made their way to Disney+ a few weeks later.
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, for instance, got its theatrical release on May 5, 2022. It then arrived on Disney+ June 22. That’s a gap of just under seven weeks (48 days, to be exact).
Lightyear, meanwhile – another big Disney blockbuster – released on June 17. It launched August 3 on Disney+, which is a gap of 47 days. See the pattern?
The movie released July 8 in theatres, so seven weeks would take us to August 26. Therefore, a September 8 release date is relatively close to fitting the pattern of previous releases.
