Thor: Love and Thunder he has some interesting records to show off. This is the Marvel movie that took the longest to reveal its first trailer. Also the one with the shortest ad campaign. And during this week, the shortest running time for a Marvel movie in four years has been added. But it is likely that soon he will also be able to celebrate another achievement. This is one of the few productions of the saga that premiered without leaks.
And it all seems to be due to a simple ruse rather than new security measures or extra precautions from the study. In a recent conversation with Fandango, the cast acknowledged that there are “so many takes” for “several versions of the film.” Director Taika Waititi, as well as stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, joked about all the “cut” footage from the final version. Even Thompson insisted that the amount of unused footage was sufficient for a “pick-your-own-adventure-style” film.
“There is an editorial multiverse in this movie, depending on which path you take,” Hemsworth said during the call. On the other hand, Waititi pointed to the fact that Thor: Love and Thunder may have its own multiverse. “There is potential for 15 different versions of this film,” the director said. Which could mean that any version of the end result is most likely not entirely accurate. In fact, even leaked costume trial photos, makeup, and even the final look of the villain played with Christian Bale have changed. Which makes it clear that Waititi took precautions when choosing the final cinematic footage for the film.
many versions Thor: Love and Thunder and many responsible directors
The abundance of cut scenes or improvised scenes is a constant in Waititi’s films. AT Thor: Ragnarok there were at least six different montages before the finale. Also a completely different scene from the first meeting of Odin, Thor and Loki with Hela. Thor: Love and Thunder seems to have reached a whole new extreme of directorial habit.
In fact, Waititi himself admitted that there were enough scenes to get “different results.” He also added that there is still “an opportunity to do something else.” An idea that plays with the possibility that the final version of the fourth installment of the Thor saga is largely unknown. Even the New Zealand director has plenty of ideas for the rest of the material that are far more interesting than including it on a possible Blu-Ray version. “I’ve always loved the idea of taking the footage and making it available to someone else and also asking them to make their own version of the film,” the director added.
Waititi enjoyed complete creative freedom during filming. Thor: Love and Thunder. In fact, the director told Comic Book last summer that this film was “the craziest” he’s ever made. In the same week, photos of Australian actress Rebel Wilson wearing a horned crown similar to Hela’s were spotted. And also Matt Damon in clothes similar to the one in which he was seen in Thor: Ragnarok, in which he made a brief appearance as an actor playing Loki. But since then, the film seemed to have gone through so many changes that its outcome was almost completely unpredictable.
Strange psychedelic flight
And this is the summary Thor: Love and Thunder“- wrote the director on his official Instagram page. “Sometimes two people come together to inspire the world and change the cinematic landscape forever. And then there’s me and Chris (Hemsworth). We’re just too cool to care about anything, other than making films that bring people absolute joy. Well, I don’t look very good. I know that.”
Taika Waititi also wrote the film with Jennifer Kaitin Robinson, which guarantees at least an extravagant ride. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Jamie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum and Vin Diesel.
