The film’s trailer had an ending scene that showed a partially nude Chris Hemsworth. Moreover, when the IMAX trailer was released an expanded look at Hemsworth’s physique was revealed. Thor: Love and Thunder has now received its official rating: PG-13. This is due to: “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, some suggestive material, and partial nudity.” No doubt, MCU films have received PG-13 ratings before, however, what is new with Thor 4 is the added reason of “partial nudity”.
