The story of Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) is expanding like never before with Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, one of the most anticipated Marvel movies in recent times.

With reports of the movie being cut to under two hours, every Marvel fan is split on whether or not they want this next Thor outing to have a longer runtime.

Now, Chris Hemsworth has confirmed that even more scenes have been cut from the final film, including a jaw-dropping dance sequence of Thor to ABBA:

Chris Hemsworth has revealed that a scene involving Thor in a “dance-off” to an ABBA song was cut from #ThorLoveAndThunder: “[With him] shooting lightning out of his fingertips!”

While talking to Kevin McCarthy, Chris Hemsworth revealed that an entire dance sequence of Thor rocking out to ABBA (undoubtedly alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy) has been shelved for various creative purposes:

“There was…to an ABBA song…but it didn’t make the movie for a few reasons. It’s a full dance scene. It’s a full dance-off shooting lightning out his fingertips and so on.”

Christian Bale previously revealed that Marvel Studios cut a dancing scene of his Gorr the god butcher character dancing to “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush (made famous by Stranger Things 4).

While dance scenes aren’t necessary for a Marvel movie, it would have been an interesting sight to see:

One fan makes an interesting point:

If they did indeed film both this and Bale’s dance scene, they better be included in the deleted scenes.

Director Taika Waititi is known for his colorful, oddball visual style, and a dance scene between the film’s protagonist and antagonist would be something of a surprise for many, but undoubtedly a better choice to call the Bonus Features section of the movie’s future home release its home.

More about Thor: Love and Thunder

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
