Fans were left disappointed after it was announced that “Thor: Love and Thunder” will be postponed due to reasons unknown but some speculated it’s probably due to LGBTQ+ elements in the movie. It was first postponed to 27th July but then it was later postponed indefinitely.
There were no reasons given for the postponement nor did we have any updates on when we can expect to see one of our favourite Avengers returning to the big screens once more. Both Marvel and Disney have been silent on the matter which left fans wondering if we’ll ever get to see the movie. Looks like we got our answer.
Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) just shared the news today (28th July) on their official Twitter page that “Thor: Love and Thunder” will not be screening in Malaysian cinemas. “Please be informed that Disney had updated that Marvel Studio’s Thor: Love and Thunder will not be releasing in Malaysia after all,” the statement reads.
Once more, neither GSC, Disney nor Marvel Studio gave reasons as to why Malaysian fans won’t get to see the God of Thunder gracing the big screens. Fans again speculated it is still due to the LGBTQ+ elements in the movie. GSC replied to their tweet saying that fans will still be able to buy official Thor movie merchandise as a way to compensate for not being able to watch the movie.
Malaysian netizens reacted to the news in a series of tweets and Facebook comments:
Looks like GSC Mid Valley will have to take down their “Thor: Love and Thunder” decorations down after all. However, it’s not the end of the world as we might still get to see the movie once it’s out on Disney+ Hotstar.
What do you guys think of the news?
