No director’s cut for Thor: Love & Thunder confirms Taika Waititi, here’s the reason why
Thor: Love & Thunder is now out in theatres the film kind of got very mixed reviews. The film’s run time is of 1 hour & 59 minutes which is quite less for a Marvel film. As mostly the runtime goes beyond 2 hours. The shortest movie of MCU was Antman & The Wasp which had a runtime of 1 hour and 58minutes.
Speaking of Director’s cuts one of DC films, “Justice League” got Zack Snyder’s cut. Taika Waititi was asked about whether he will ever make a director’s cut for Thor Love & Thunder and by his answer, he made that clear.
Marvel movies have never got a director’s cut, after Avengers Endgame there were talks with Russo Brothers about having a Director’s cut but we didn’t get a clear answer for that, so we don’t really know if that thing will ever happen.
After Thor Ragnarok, Taika Waititi has reunited once again with the cast for the fourth film of Thor which is “Thor: Love & Thunder”. In an interview with Taika, Waititi spoke about the director’s cuts and he thinks they are not really good or worth watching.
He says, “Director’s cuts are not good”. He further spoke about how he has watched many other directors’ cuts and he thinks that “they suck”. He continues, “Directors need to be controlled sometimes and if I was to say,’ ah, you wanna watch my director’s cut? It’s four and a half hours long!’ It’s not good, at four and a half hours. There are a lot of cup-of-tea breaks in there, you don’t even have to pause it.”
Taika was asked about how his director cut would be different, to which he responded that it would probably have a “few more jokes in there”.
He explained that even though there are deleted scenes in a film but they are cut down from the final output for a reason, that they are not that good to be in a film.
In a previous interview with Waititi has spoken about how there were scenes that were cut from the final output, he says ” You get into the edit. You’re like, ‘ I still kind of like it. ‘ And then after about six months of it being in the movie, you realize it was fun on the day, but it doesn’t have any business being in the movie.”
He further adds, ” 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.”
