The latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Love and Thunder, is slated to replace the God of Thunder with his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who will be known as the Mighty Thor, as depicted in the new teaser. Not only that but the man will be stripped naked in front of a crowd by Zeus (Russell Crowe) for a few chuckles.
The MCU might follow in the footsteps of Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic book, in which the god of thunder was dethroned by Jane and compelled to work under the name Odinson.
Fans arent happy with the scene where Thor is being stripped.
Remember the time we were lectured about objectifying sexy people? Apparently it's ok if they do it. Also Zeus strips Thor. Pretty sure if the genders were reversed we'd be hearing the hornies in them mentions having a meltdown. Prove me wrong on that. 🙄 https://t.co/Amg41j4r0G

Thor: Love and Thunder – What if the sexes were reversed?
What if the first Thor was a woman who was about to be replaced by a male, and Zeus “accidentally” stripped her of her entire wardrobe in front of an audience? Isn’t that a separate conversation now?
But why is this a distinct topic of discussion? Why isn’t it a negative thing to objectify anyone, male or female? Why is it that ogling is pushed as a complement for guys with amazing bodies, but it is criticised by the filmmakers when it comes to women with amazing bodies?
I noticed they got rid of Thor’s dadbod. Couldn’t have him get naked while fat. How progressive. Besides the hypocrisy at play, I heard that the Grecian Pantheon is in this movie…oh dear. Also also they keep making Thor look like a pathetic loser hanging on Jane’s every word.

Are the Actors a Contributor to the Issue?
While the production firms and directors are in charge of what we see on screen, the performers have a lot of power and authority when it comes to making modifications to a scene.
Gal Gadot, for example, simply declined to film a scene in Justice League that sexualized Wonder Woman. The scene was originally supposed to show Flash landing awkwardly over Gadot’s torso. The fact that the filmmaker brought a body double, especially for that one scene speaks much about the attitude with which some directors approach these multi-million dollar sets.
Chris Hemsworth must also be held liable in Thor: Love and Thunder for allowing the filmmaker to film such a sequence. Maybe he’s fine with people staring at him lustfully, and it’s the last thing on his mind as long as the Thor series is finally loved and enjoyed, right?
#Thor: #LoveandThunder REVEALS Woke Hypocrisy For The World https://t.co/GFKCP88Ktl via @TheQuartering As a follower of the old way I should probably be very upset. Imagine if it was some other religion, like Islam, that was treated like this? But the fact is that I don’t care!
