Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson have had a bit of fun poking holes in some of the issues with Thor: Love And Thunder.

When watching a movie on the big screen, it can sometimes be easy to forget just how much work goes into putting it all together.

Scripts change, scenes are reworked and some footage is reworked to serve a purpose other than it was originally intended.

Often, this can be spotted by the audience but sometimes, the film's director and star just start pointing out this stuff by themselves.

That's exactly what Thor: Love And Thunder director Taika Waititi and movie star Tessa Thompson have just done during an interview for Vanity Fair.

The pair started by poking fun at some of the CGI in the movie, particularly on the appearance of character Korg (played by Waititi himself) who they agreed 'doesn't really' look real in one of the shots.

Still, considering Korg is a walking, talking rock monster he can probably be forgiven for not looking very real at times given that CGI is easier than making Waititi wear a costume carved out of actual rocks.

Thompson also pointed out one of the issues in the movie with editing a scene but keeping old footage had made her look a bit strange during the film.

She explained that her character Valkyrie jumps slightly as though startled in one moment when nothing is happening to scare her.

The star pointed out that in a previous version of the scene Thor was supposed to wake up and cry 'bluegh', making Valkyrie's slightly startled reaction make a bit more sense.

Thompson joked that Waititi 'just left it there randomly' and that her reaction show now 'doesn't make any sense but I love it'.

Meanwhile, Thor actor Chris Hemsworth recently revealed that his younger brother Liam was almost cast in the role of the God of Thunder and initially made it ahead of him in the casting process.

Chris explained that he didn't get a call back after his first audition, but got back in the running after Liam made it down to the final five and lost out on the part due to being 'a bit young' for the role.

The idea that an older Hemsworth would be great for the role opened the door for Chris to re-audition, leading to him getting the part he's played for over a decade.

Another Hemsworth brother, Luke, has made a cameo appearance in the Marvel movies as an Asgardian actor portraying some of Thor's exploits in the films.

Thor: Love And Thunder is in cinemas now.
