“The entire movie should’ve been cut”: Taika Waititi Faces Further Criticism as Thor: Love and Thunder Atrocious Deleted Scene Involving a Major Greek God Gets Released

Thor Love and Thunder, Director Taika Waititi

It’s not that Taika Waititi is a bad filmmaker. In fact, quite the opposite. He has the originality to create intergenerational movies that can move you to tears while vehemently critiquing social themes that no director would dare to exploit as a subject of satire [i.e. Jojo Rabbit]. But when the eccentric genius is allowed the free rein of an established franchise with tendencies to swerve from its source, and coupled with no budgetary limitations, the combination becomes detrimental to all parties involved.

Taika Waititi’s Blasphemous Mockery That Was Thor 4

When the cosmic cast of Thor, Zeus, Valkyrie, and Jane Foster all come together and combine with the preternatural beauty of Christian Bale‘s acting, and it’s still not enough to save a $250 million film, that already says something about Thor: Love and Thunder‘s quality. With so much talent at his disposal and an enigmatic super-powered villain to make use of, Taika Waititi still falls short while impressing his audience.

Of course, his nonchalance toward the film’s negative reception and a tactic to rile up the fandom with claims each more criminally outrageous than the next served to deliver a killing blow to Thor 4‘s dwindling ratings. After Marvel Studios’ discernable silence on the issue, new reports indicate that the director will allegedly NOT be returning to direct Thor 5 if indeed there happens to be one in the future.

In a recently released footage, the audience has been served with another outpouring of love from Thor: Love and Thunder and it’s making them tear up. Not because it’s good (obviously) but due to the fact that the atrocious scene had almost made it to the final cut. The cry of frustration is ebbing in waves over social media and Twitter hasn’t had a reputation for being kind.

Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok which was once hailed as one of MCU’s bests has now become the director’s worst enemy with Love and Thunder being constantly compared to the success of its predecessor. Hopefully, with Phase Four coming to an end, Marvel too can rise up out of its temporary hole at rock bottom and start delivering good projects that won’t make its audience feel like clawing their eyes out.

Thor: Love and Thunder will be available to stream on Disney+ from September 8, 2022.
