‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ almost had Jesus Christ in between the scene of the gods
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ brings together gods from different mythologies in a scene in which the character played by Chris Hemsworth alert about Gorr (Christian Bale), known as the Butcher of the Gods.
Among them we see the goddess Wakandana Bast (Akosia Sabet) and even Zeus (Russell Crowe), the Greek god ruler of Olympus.
However, the film almost had the participation of Jesus Christ, as revealed by the director. Taika Waititi.
During an interview with BBC One radio, the filmmaker said that it would only be a brief appearance, but that the public would know who it was.
“There should be a cut for you-know-who. Himself, Big J. It was just a scene in the blink of an eye, but everyone would know it was Him.”
Unfortunately, waititi didn’t reveal why Jesus was cut from the film, but he probably didn’t want to draw criticism from the Christian community for portraying the Son of God in a comedic way.
Remembering that the sequel is already available on Disney+.
The film features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he has ever faced: the quest for self-knowledge. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, being the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
The cast is also made up of Jaime Alexander (Lady Sif), Jeff Goldblum (Grand Master), Christian Bale (Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods) and Russell Crowe (Zeus).
Melissa McCarthy will play the “fake version” of Hela in the Asgard theater troupe, alongside Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill.
Michael Giacchino (‘Batman’, ‘Ratatouille’) is responsible for the soundtrack.
