Marvel fans have already posted comments on social media about Thor: Love and Thunder, which is currently available on Disney+. More than that, most fans don’t seem to be thrilled by the “improvement” because it appears like the visual effects on at least one scene have been modified in a very evident way. Disney and Marvel have not yet responded to the controversy, but it is not unheard of for studios to make small changes to a movie after it has already been seen by viewers and critics, as was the case with Thor: Love and Thunder.
Of course, Marvel has recently experienced a “false alarm” over adjustments made after a release. After fans called attention to it, an alteration that appeared to be made to suppress a particularly gory sequence in an episode of The Falcon & the Winter Soldier was reversed. Disney said the modification was not deliberate and attributed it to a Disney+ bug. The scene in Thor: Love and Thunder where Thor and Jane are speaking with Astrid (Heimdall’s son) use Asgardian magic or technology to transmit to them. Below is an illustration of the apparent change.
Thor is embarking on a quest for self-discovery in Thor: Love and Thunder, a journey unlike any he has ever experienced. However, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), an assassin from another galaxy who wants to wipe off all gods, interrupts his retirement. Thor recruits the assistance of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Waititi), and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who, to Thor’s amazement, mysteriously wields his mystical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Where will their journey lead them? For begins, on a journey to Olympus, the home of Zeus (Russell Crowe), who rules supremely. To unravel the mysteries of the God Butcher’s retaliation and put a stop to him before it’s too late, they set out on a perilous cosmic adventure together.
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder are currently streaming on Disney+. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, and Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper as the Guardians of the Galaxy.
