Marvel executives would be responsible for a portion of the script modifications for Thor: Love and Thunder that was meant to be less than two hours long.
Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth entry of the God of Thunder in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and pits Odinson against Gorr The God Butcher, a villain who lost everything in a forgotten world and swore revenge on the deities by eliminating them with the sword Necrosword. To stop him, the son of Odin and a team of heroes made up of Valkyrie, Korg and Jane Foster will begin an incredible journey that will even take them to Olympus.
The new Thor movie is directed by Taika Waititi and maintains the same fresh and colorful style as the previous entry in the series, Ragnarok, but this time emphasizing humor in such an eloquent way that we can consider this film more of a comedy than a superhero movie. The truth is that the tape is short, it lasts approximately two hours, and there are reports that suggest the intervention of Marvel in the script.
the journalist Joanna Robinson stated regarding love and thunder on the podcast The Ringer-Verse: “Taika Waititi didn’t have a blank canvas to do whatever he wanted with Thor: Love and Thunder. Absolutely. He had more freedom of action than in Ragnarok, but they also demanded from above that the film should last less than two hours. The feature film, finally, had less than two hours. But they cut a ton of stuff from this fourth installment of the Marvel Studios hero.”.

Y Simon Russel Beale He was going to play Dionysus in the movie. All these modifications respond to the need to keep the film short, according to Robinson. The alterations in the book of the tape also reached one of the most important characters in the plot.
We are talking about Gorr The God Butcher, the villain masterfully played by Christian balewho is no stranger to the superhero genre in the movies, after all he was Batman in the Dark Knight trilogy directed by the visionary director Christopher Nolan that thanks to those tickets revolutionized the way of making these films.
Gorr The God Butcher had more sequences than we can see in the cut released in theaters. The villain was going to use the Necrosword sword to kill more characters than he killed in the final version of the film so that viewers would understand the level of threat this character posed to the deities of the game. Marvel Cinematic Universe and incidentally balance a little comedy with action. Unfortunately this did not happen with the film Taika Waititi.
