It is not yet known if love and thunder will be in the lead Ragnarokbut it has a chance as long as it stays in theaters.

Recently, Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) talked about doing both Thor: Ragnarok and Thor: Love and Thunder, and said the first was “one big messy experiment”. As for love and thunder, some fans say the movie is too short and doesn’t give some characters time to breathe, so there’s already an internet campaign calling for a director’s cut. However, Taika Waititi recently spoke with NME and revealed that he was not a fan of the idea.

“I’ve been thinking about director’s cuts. I watch director’s cuts from a lot of other directors. They suck. Director’s cuts aren’t good. Directors sometimes have to be vetted and if I had to say, ‘ah you wanna watch my director it’s been four and a half hours! It’s not good, at half past four. There’s a lot of teacup breaks in there, you don’t even have to take a break”, explained Waititi.

He added: “I would say my cut would probably have a few extra jokes in it. There might be a few deleted scenes, but as I always say, a scene gets deleted because it’s not good enough to be in the movie. I think the deleted scenes section on the DVD, not that they use them anymore, should just be a list of the scenes and no links so you can’t click on them!”

Thor: love and thunder is still playing in theaters.
