One of the big questions facing upcoming Marvel sequel “Thor: Love and Thunder” is whether or not Thor will maintain his weight gain as seen in “Avengers: Endgame" and as the movie gets into its scripting stage, director Taika Watiti adresses the debate started by the MCU fans.
Thor's weight gain in "Avengers: Endgame" came as a surprise to many fans but director Taika Waititi says they are still debating whether to keep it in the new film or not.
"This is an ongoing debate that we're still having at Marvel. Cause we're trying to figure out how long ? how many months or years ? this is after? Endgame,' at what point does this take place? "I think we always want to keep changing it up with Thor. He's so interesting when he's changing all the time." Waititi told Yahoo.
Though Thor's weigh gain was largely approved by fans, there were many who found it offensive that it was always the butt of jokes and punchlines.
Hemsworth will reprise his superhero character and has earlier in an interview revealed how much he liked playing a heavier-set superhero. “I enjoyed that version of Thor,” the actor said.
