Marvel Fans Are Arguing Over Major 'Plot Hole' Opened By Thor: Love And Thunder

Warning: Spoilers ahead

Thor: Love and Thunder has been accused by some Marvel fans of opening up a significant plot hole for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The sequel to Thor: Ragnarok was released on 7 July in the UK and 8 July in the US. However, it has already faced harsh criticism and so much so, has been ranked as one of the worst Marvel movies ever.

And one of the main complaints? The alleged gaping plot hole which that has been reported by some fans which, if true, creates issues within the MCU as far back as Avengers: Endgame (2019).

In Love and Thunder, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) sets out to destroy every single god in the universe using Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) enchanted axe, Stormbreaker.

Gorr needs Stormbreaker to help him travel to a cosmic deity named Eternity which has the power to grant him any wish.

However, instead of wishing for the end of all gods, Gorr chooses to bring back Love (India Rose Hemsworth) - his daughter, who passed away.

While this is great news for Gorr and Love, Marvel fans have been left confused as to why another character didn't previously try to reach Eternity to bring back those who died in Avengers: Endgame.

As Pop Sugar reported, 'the entirety of Infinty War is a race to stop Thanos from collecting all six Infinity Stones'.

In his quest for the stones, the villainous warlord kills Vision, Gamora (sort of), Loki and Heimdall.

Many fans have been left questioning why Thor didn't subsequently attempt to travel to Eternity at the end of Endgame in order to try and bring back all of Thanos' victims, instead falling into a depressive state, at a loss of what to do.

Others have also queried why Thanos didn't just go to Eternity and 'wish for half the universe to disappear' rather than just 'collecting colourful stones'.

Marvel fans have flooded to Twitter to debate the potential 'massive plot-hole' the film has opened up.

One user said: "Love and Thunder might have created a HUGE plothole with Infinity War/Endgame. If Eternity can grant any wish, why didn’t anyone wish for half of all life to return? Am I missing something? Genuinely asking."

"I thought about that too, Thanos could also have used that. Maybe is not that common knowledge? :V (also how could they make Tony hero of the story :T /irony)," another replied.

A third said: "Literally would’ve worked if Thor had a line like “Eternity?” Like he didn’t know about it before."

However, other viewers flocked to the film's defence and offered possible explanations.

One said: "Idk because they made it sound like it was very difficult but then they reached it very easily. I'm just gonna assume that it was forbidden to the gods to use the wish or that they didnt know that the bifrost was the key."

"Most didn't know it existed and those like Valkyrie who did, didn't know how to get there only finding out there was a key from Zeus. They showed Gorr researched to find it and how to get in," another commented.

A final user theorized: "Solution: they didn’t know where Eternity was until after the events of Endgame. The temple was destroyed when Gorr got there wasn’t it?

"Perhaps they thought a location to them was impossible. I feel like that’s half an explanation. Because the sword told Gorr where to go but how did Zeus know? Maybe because he’s all knowing. And since he’s a selfish p***k he wouldn’t bother to bring people back."
