Thor: Love and Thunder brought the reunion of Dr. Jane Foster and Thor Odinson in a very unexpected way.

Thor: Love and Thunder’s Taika Waititi reference to Infinity Gauntlet in the movie

Amidst the positive reviews, Taika Waititi is receiving backlash for making it more like a comedy movie and less like an unusual MCU movie. The recent MCU projects have highlighted various issues in society that Marvel could not bring out in the previous movies. Interestingly, Thor: Love and Thunder also showed Valkyrie’s love preferences that Marvel could not show in its previous movies.

A fan lashed at Taika Waititi and said “just accepting literally every single thing taika throws at you” while referring to that the MCU fans would accept anything the director shows in the movie. 

Well, that is very hard to comment upon but we are over World War II. Aren’t we?

A fan reminded us that this was the same gauntlet that Iron Man used to save the world and bring back half of the world’s population. “Anything celebrating that would use Stark’s gauntlet.”

“not by being snapped into oblivion while you play Candy Crush in the toilet”, a fan tweeted while referring to reaching Valhalla by fighting a battle and not playing Candy Crush.

What made fans trigger?

According to a few fans, the Infinity Gauntlet reference acted like cheap humor that disrespects Asgardian sacrifices and Loki’s death. Thanos’s Infinity Gauntlet removed half a population of the world in a snap and its reference did not have a warming reception in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Thor: Love and Thunder starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Christain Bale is now running in theatres.
