Thor: Love and Thunder finally released
Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi had discussed plans for a sequel to Ragnarok by January 2018. Love and Thunder was announced in July 2019, with Chris Hemsworth, Taika Waititi, and Tessa Thompson all set to return, as well as Natalie Portman who did not appear in Ragnarok. The director wanted to differentiate Love and Thunder from Ragnarok, seeking to make a romance film and 1980s-inspired adventure.
He adopted elements from Jason Aaron’s run on The Mighty Thor comic book, which sees Jane Foster take on the mantle and powers of Thor whilst suffering from cancer. Robinson joined to contribute to the script in February 2020, and further casting was revealed later that year including the appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Production was expected to begin in late 2020 but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming ultimately began in January 2021 in Sydney, Australia, and concluded at the beginning of June.

Blame audiences, not Cinemascore lol

MoM got the same score. That's not some hater review bombing, it's the general audience speaking. Endgame and NWH gave them maximum exposure so I hope @MarvelStudios realises how much they're risking here being the biggest money maker in Hollywood and producing so mid tier films.

Only phase 4 has been mid tier according to GA

A+ to B+ is considered good any below B+ bad.

Despite the backlash, many fans claim that the movie failed to live up to the hype. Many were not satisfied with the screen time Gorr was given.
Thor: Love and Thunder is in cinemas now.
