When requested about these tonal variations within the movie and comedian, Waititi emphasised the necessity for change in adaptation, telling critics to “read the comics” if they need that precise story:
“It’s an ongoing battle because I want my films to be entertaining,” Waititi defined “and I want a lot of humor in them – to poke fun not only at the idea of the Space Viking, but also to poke fun at humans. How we bumble our way through life on this planet.”
“The comic run is very serious, and Jane’s story is especially tense. And so to try to find humor around that stuff, as well as making it an emotional story, was always going to be difficult,” he continued. “And we struggled with that. We wrestled with it throughout the edit, right up until we finished the film.”
“We did funny scenes about cancer, we did way more tragic scenes about having cancer. Some audiences really loved the humor part of it. Some audiences really wanted it to be just like the comics. But, you know, I always say, if you want it to be exactly like the comics read the comic. You’ve got to change things here and there to make it a film.”
Regardless of what vocal followers say on social media, Thor: Love and Thunder was nonetheless a large field workplace success for the MCU, so don’t be shocked if Taika Waititi is handed the reigns to Thor as soon as extra. Whereas it’s sure a disgrace how The Mighty Thor was tailored, followers can solely hope Waititi’s subsequent outing with the character does them extra justice.
