Warning — the rest of this article contains spoilers for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Spoiler. Some fans absolutely hate learning details about the plot of their anticipated films in advance, claiming that it ruins the experience. Others are much more forgiving, and some groups even actively seek out spoilers to include all the information they can find before watching a movie.
Well what love and thunderWell, there weren’t really many leaks ahead of the release of the fourth Thor solo film. But the British Board of Film Classification website might have shaken things up a bit.
British film official website spoils thor 4
The official page on the British Board of Film Classification website for Thor: Love and Thunder lists some elements from the film that could certainly be considered spoilers. Those details are listed under the “Ratings info” tab, which is actually labeled with a spoiler alert
“May contain spoilers”.
On the one hand, the circumstances surrounding the many injuries added to characters are listed.
There are scenes of fantastic bloodshed, including jets of golden blood in a sword fight between gods. Fantastic creatures are sloppily dismembered. A villain rips off a monster’s head and throws it at children. A hero is shown to be missing an eye.
In all likelihood, the hero in question is Thor himself. He lost his right eye in a fight with Hela in 2017 Thor: Ragnarok and received a bionic replacement in Avengers: Infinity Warby Rocket, although it’s probably best not to ask where he got it from…
And of course, the BBFC would be remiss if they didn’t mention the much-discussed scene where Zeus magically snaps his fingers to remove Thor’s clothes, exposing his butt, or as the site puts it: “weird rear nudity.”
There are weird verbal references to orgies. There are slight allusions to what a hero’s penis looks like. There are other references to “making babies” and “dressing it”. There is weird rear nudity.
Let’s continue with the movie “occasional fear of jumping” and other moments that might be unsettling, including a villain who wants to decapitate young children. Could this be Christian Bales Gorr? It doesn’t really seem to be his MO, so maybe not.:
In sequences of moderate horror, children are snatched from their beds by monsters at night and held captive by a sinister villain who threatens to cut off their heads. There are occasional jump scares. This horror is interspersed with comedy and ends on a soothing note.
The BBFC’s website also lists the film’s notable moments of violence:
There are extended fantastic fight sequences. A man stabs a god in the neck. Warriors fight with swords, axes and melee. A group of gods is said to have been lynched.
And finally we come to “bad language” uttered in the film, most of which are almost guaranteed to have come from the mouths of the Guardians of the Galaxy. A character suffering from cancer is also mentioned, apparently referring to Jane:
There are mild swear words like “pi**”, “cr*p”, “a**h*le”, “sh*t”, “h*ll”, “d*mn”, “**d” and “idiot”. A character’s terminal cancer is a theme of the film; There are disturbing scenes associated with it.
Seems like Thor 4 is having a wild time
Remember that Thor: Love and Thunder, like all current offerings from Marvel Studios, is strictly rated PG-13. Fans won’t find F‑bombs or full frontal nudity in this MCU project.
That shouldn’t stop the studio from playing comically with established tropes surrounding such things, though. At least the movie is directed by none other than Taika Waititi. The New Zealander is known for his goofy, irreverent sense of humor.
And as for the violence, it’s safe to say that all of the dismemberments and physical harm are inflicted on alien characters. Whenever Marvel contains heavy graphic violence, it is often either hinted at or only shown off-screen. And on rare occasions when it doesn’t, the damage done is usually bloodless.
Fans will be able to see for themselves when Marvel Studios Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8th.
