Taika Waititi responds to criticism of Thor: Love and Thunder’s humor with a hilarious comic panel that proves Thor can be funny.
Thor: Love and Thunder Director Taika Waititi responds to criticism of the new MCU film’s comedic tone with a hilarious comic panel. Waititi returned to direct the fourth Thor Film after his extremely successful Thor: Ragnarok in 2017. The film reunites Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) – now the Mighty Thor – as they team up with Korg (Waititi) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to take on Gorr the God Butcher ( Christian Bale) to fight. While love and thunder Having grossed over $700 million worldwide, the film received mixed reviews.
One of the most divisive elements for viewers of Thor: Love and Thunder is the humor of the film. While Waititi managed to revive Thor by adding more comedy Ragnarok, its sequel doubles with even crazier jokes. Many viewers liked the new film’s light-hearted approach, but some criticized the more comedic tone as overdone. As a result, the debates are over gate 4‘s comedy have erupted among Marvel fans across the internet.
Waiting responded to such an argument in a recent Twitter post. This debate started when Twitter user @cubichy criticized Waititi’s approach love and thunderby saying the director turned Thor into one “an idiot” and “a buffoon” because the Norse thunder god wouldn’t be joking. Another user by the name of @HwjwhJeh defended the film with a hilarious comic panel captioned: “Dawg, he had a dance-off with Luke Cage. Stop pretending that Thor can only be one thing.” Adding his seal of approval to @HwjwhJeh’s tweet, Waititi said: “lol yes.” See Waititi’s response below:
The panel showing Luke Cage lifting Thor during a dance fight seems ridiculous, but it could fit right in there Thor: Love and Thunder‘s screaming goats. In a way, Thor’s new pets embody both sides of the love and thunder Debate. While it can be argued that the goat’s screams carry a one-off joke too far, the goats themselves have appeared in both Norse mythology and Marvel comics, albeit without the screaming. Despite all the negative reactions to the film’s tone, Waititi clearly used the comics as source material.
Waititi’s Defense of love and thunder It probably won’t convince everyone who didn’t like the film’s over-the-top comedy, but it does show that the director is committed to his work. Perhaps more importantly, it also shows that the director can maintain his signature sense of humor outside of his films. But not every Marvel fan will be happy with Waititi’s take on the comics Thor: Love and Thunder will be enjoyed by many others.
