The returning Marvel stars didn’t make the final cut of Taika Waititi’s imminent Thor sequel, it is being reported.
Taika Waititi has assembled a sprawling cast, chock-full of star names for the next film in the Thor series – Thor: Love & Thunder – but sadly, it doesn’t look like everybody on the call sheet will be making it into the final film. According to quotes from Christian Bale who stars as the film’s primary antagonist, Jeff Goldblum and Peter Dinklage have seen their contributions to the movie left on the cutting room floor. This has also been confirmed by those who attended the film’s world premiere.
Bale let the news slip whilst on press rounds for the film, stating “Taika [Waititi] really created just a really, really, really good cast… I got to work with Peter Dinklage, that’s not in the final film, but I got to work with him, he’s fantastic. I got to work with Jeff Goldblum, he’s not in the final film either. As you see, lots of stuff ends up on the cutting room floor, even though it is beautiful, brilliant stuff.”
One of the most enticing prospects about Love & Thunder has been the star wattage of its cast list, with Goldblum and Dinklage lining up alongside Chris Hemsworth as Thor alongside Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Waititi, Russell Crowe, and Natalie Portman. Then there’s Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper performing their respective MCU roles as the Guardians Of The Galaxy. We’ll also be seeing turns from Matt Damon, Sam Neill, and Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy and Simon Russell Beale.
Unfortunately, we can now take Goldblum and Dinklage off that list which as a shame considering that their previous turns in the MCU were so enjoyable. Still, there’s every chance we see them again in the future and it’s not like the film is short of a star name or two. You can catch Thor: Love & Thunder when it releases on 7th July.
