Movie making is a very serious business, especially in the field of blockbusters when there are hundreds of millions of dollars in production and marketing costs at stake, which could end up generating billions of dollars in box office profits. That said, it seems as if not taking things seriously is the key to Thor: love and thunder.
Early reactions to the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe made their way online after the premiere, with the consensus calling it a vibrant, fun-filled, fast-paced cosmic adventure that improves on everything that worked about Chris Hemsworth and Taika. Waititi’s first collaboration in ragnarok.
Speaking to Deadline on the red carpet, the leading man admitted that he has embraced the more teenage qualities of Odinson and found a kindred spirit in his motion-captured writer, director, and co-star.
“There’s a teenage quality to him, a sense of adventure. And a kind of funny immaturity. [Working with Waititi] It’s something different every time, something fresh. And he is a dear friend. He has the same kind of immature quality that he was talking about. The best way possible.”
We’d probably bet decent money on Christian Bale being left out of the “immature” conversation, given that he’s spent decades establishing his reputation as a very serious actor, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t have had fun on set. even though he was buried under mountains of makeup and prosthetics to terrify every inch of her Thor: love and thunder as the destroyer of deities Gorr the God Butcher.
