Another fan writes:

I don’t get it. This movie is WAY better than The Dark World, the first Thor movie, Captain Marvel, The Incredible Hulk, and so many others. This is literally my fourth favorite MCU film, as of right now. What was it about this movie that was so polarizing?

One fan offers the solution to the problem:

1. Thor needed a balance of Seriousness & Humour like IW, but got turned into a Stand up comedian who cracks bad jokes
2. Gorr is a God Butcher not child kidnapper
3. No build up for Jane’s Thor, she came in and went pass with hardly anyone caring about her
4. Way Too much Comedy

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.
