Chris Hemsworth’s portrayal of Thor is one of the most interesting and emotionally resonant performances in the MCU.
In Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, Thor stands out as one of the franchise’s most hysterical characters. And as the Russo brothers build upon it, a tragic layer has been added to the character with depression and alcoholism.
Of course, Hemsworth is to give credit for. Thor has enjoyed plenty of sad moments throughout the MCU. So, here are Thor’s five most heartbreaking lines in the MCU.
5) “You’ll Die For That!”
In the opening scene of Avengers: Infinity War undoes Thor: Ragnarok with a brilliant style. The ship of Thanos and the Black Order Asgardians attacks the Statesman and kills most of the people aboard.
Thor is restrained by metal beams and is forced to watch as both his best friend and his brother are killed in front of him. To the desperate Thor promises Thanos, “You’ll die for it!” And he finally does.
4) “I Went For The Head.”
Marvel fans wondered how our heroes would defeat Thanos in their last stand against the Mad Titan after Avengers: Infinity War. So, in the first 20 minutes of the endgame, they were surprised to find that he had been killed. They tracked him to a distant planet and demanded him to hand over the Infinity Stones.
He says, however, that he used the stones to destroy those stones, and all hope is lost. Later, taking Thanos’ advice from Infinity War, Thor smashes his head with the Storm Breaker. But given all that they have lost, it is not a heroic victory. This is a dire situation.
3) “Don’t Say That Name.”
When Rocket and Hulk go to New Asgard to hire Thor for “Time Heist” after a five-year hiatus in the Avengers: Endgame, they find that he’s in a really dark place.
After failing to stop Thanos, he began to drink and became very depressed. The Hulk mentions Thanos with tears in his eyes. And Thor says, “Don’t say that name.”
2) “If I’m Wrong, What More Could I Lose?”
After losing his mother, father, home, brother, his best friend, and most of his people, Thor felt he hit rock bottom. He told Rocket that he plans to kill Thanos, and he wants it. But Rocket suggested that he might be wrong. And Thor says, “If I’m wrong, what more could I lose?”
But as it turned out, he had more to fall for. When he faced Thanos with his new weapon, his vanity allowed Thanos to complete his diabolical plan and wipe out half of all life in the world.
1) “Let Me Do Something Good, Something Right.”
After the success of “Time Heist,” the Avengers put Infinity Stones into the Iron Gauntlet, and it’s ready to be worn by a hero who will snap fingers and brings back everyone who disappeared.
Thor feels responsible for allowing the Decimation to happen in the first place. So, he wants to do it. The other Avengers don’t think it’s a brilliant idea, because he’s not in the best mental state. But Thor pleads Tony to let him do it: “Let me do something good, something right.”
