Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder is released in theaters this weekend and it’s been met with mixed reviews from fans. While the movie definitely had some problems, but it is a good fun movie to watch.
Natalie Portman recently talked about the movie with IndieWire and said that there was a lot of great material that was shot for the movie that ended up on the cutting room floor:
“It’s just amazing how much great material is not in the film, considering how much great material is in it. Usually, it’s like, you’re just trying to get enough good stuff to put in the film, and this had overflow. So that was really surprising.”
Some of the things we know about being cut contain cameos from Peter Dinklage‘s Eitri and Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster. Now we are discovering that many of those cut scenes also involve Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher.
In an interview with Collider, Bale shared that some of his loved scenes as Gorr were cut out of the movie! He said there was an “awful lot” he wished was in the movie:
“There’s so much gold that’s on the cutting room floor, hilarious stuff, and creepy as hell stuff, but that was perhaps pushing it to a realm where maybe it wouldn’t have been able to be family-friendly, which we always wanted it to be.”
I am sure that all this footage is eventually released, fans would love to see it! Bale also went on to praise Taika Waititi’s work and his humor, saying:
“He’s got great sincerity as well. He’s a real artist. And so, man, it’s moving. That is the bloody surprising thing with this film. It’s a very moving film and then two seconds later, you’re laughing your a** off.”
