‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Features Updated CGI on Disney+
Fans are celebrating Disney+ Day with Marvel’s most recent release, but one eagle-eyed fan noticed a unique difference in the streaming version, as Thor: Love and Thunder features updated CGI on Disney+.
There is no denying that the record-setting fourth solo film for the character of Thor was among hte most anticipated Marvel releases of this year.
Long being perceived as a lynchpin for the phase four slate of films, the project featured seemingly endless reasons for Marvel, and Thor fans, to be excited about the entry.
Not only was Taika Waititi returning to helm the project after his tremendous success on Thor: Ragnarok, but it featured a plethora of returning, and debuting, names that could have massive importance.
The project didn’t necessarily live up to the hype that preceded its release, but it is undeniable that the film was still among Marvel’s most entertaining.
With it finally arriving on the Disney-exclusive streaming platform, however, one fan did notice something very different about this version of the film.
As it turns out, Thor: Love and Thunder feature updated CGI in its Disney+ version in at least one pivotal scene in the film.
It was a moment noticed by Twitte user, @comicxbook who posted a screen grab of the same scene one from the theatrical version, and one from its streaming counterpart.

The evidence very directly shows that there was an update being done to the CGI in the streaming release, as it certainly looks clearer than its theatrical counterpart.
With all of the recent controversy surrounding Marvel Studios’ issues with the use of CGI and its visual effects department, this is yet another potential example of an issue in-house.
This could point to the fact that Marvel has been inconsistent with its standards due to the high volume of projects that they release in any given year.
With new infrastructure being put in place following the controversy of this year, we do expect things to gradually improve as the next batch of titles is released.
