‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is Officially Lowest Rated Thor Movie
It was among the highest anticipated films of the summer’s Phase Four slate, and while it was as entertaining as any project, it has clearly underperformed, as Thor: Love and Thunder is officially the lowest-rated Thor movie that the MCU has ever released.
There were fewer films in this summer slate that had the kind of anticipation and excitement that surrounded it than what would be the record-breaking fourth solo film for the beloved character of Thor; and what could have been one of the most beloved films in the universe.
The film was set to introduce one of Marvel comics’ most interesting- and menacing- villains in the history of the publication, with Gorr the God Butcher set to confront the character that he has gone up against so often in the comic books.
Not only was the film primed to introduce that villain seemed to be legendary, but it was also set to introduce Jane Foster’s The Mighty Thor, who is among the most interesting legacy character of the company, with Natalie Portman reprising the role she had played in the first two Thor films.
If those two aspects weren’t enough, it also saw the return f Taika Waititi to the franchise he revitalized with his tremendous work on Thor: Ragnarok; a film that took a character who was undeniably faltering in his perception and rejuvenated him to becoming a fan-favorite.
Yet, with all of the excitement and anticipation that was in store for the project, it grossly underperformed in its reception from fans, and that has hit an all-time low now; as Thor: Love and Thunder is now, officially, the lowers-rated Thor movie in the MCU’s history.
When approaching the Rotten Tomatoes score of the film, Thor: Love and Thunder currently sit at 65%, which is now lower than the previous record holder, Thor: The Dark World’s 66%.
The reason why this is so alarming is how Thor: The Dark World is perceived at the time of its release, and retrospectively; with the project long being seen as one of the worst MCU entries of Marvel’s 29 releases.
Time will only tell how the perception of Thor: Love and Thunder changes over time, but we can imagine that the project will continue to age the way that it is trending
