Thor: Love and Thunder is about to make Marvel history by becoming the first MCU film to feature partial nudity.
The film has a PG-13 rating because of 'intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, some suggestive material and partial nudity', as per FilmRatings.com.
While all of the MCU films are rated a PG-13, Thor: Love and Thunder is the only one so far to be flagged for ‘partial nudity’, ScreenRant reports.
The latest Marvel film sees Thor (Chris Hemsworth) team up with his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) to defeat Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) who, as his name suggests, wants to destroy all Gods.
The official synopsis reads: “The film finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a search for self-discovery. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.
“Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”
And if director Taika Waititi’s words are anything to go by, Marvel fans are in for a treat with the new villain.
“I'd say he’s the most sympathetic villain they’ve had," Waititi said in a recent interview. “He's also tested the highest out of any villain that Marvel's had.”
However, the film may also see Hemsworth, 38, play Thor for the last time, as he revealed in a recent interview with Wired.
He was asked: "What is Chris Hemsworth's last Marvel movie?"
"The last one I just shot was Thor: Love and Thunder," the actor said. "And it may be my last, I don't know."
Hemsworth first transformed into Thor in 2011 for the standalone Thor and has since portrayed the character in a number of other Marvel movies, including Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
The film picks up from Thor's last on-screen appearance at the end of Avengers: Endgame and it is the character's first solo movie since Ragnarok.
Hemsworth said of filming what could well be his last film as Thor: “It was a wild and fun and wacky experience, as all Taika Waititi movies are.”
“I played that character for 10, 11 years now and each time it’s been new and exciting, and this was no exception," he added.
“It felt very fresh and it felt like we were trying something we hadn’t tried before. It was, in Taika’s words, a wacky, wild, romantic comedy set in space.”
Thor: Love and Thunder is being released in the UK on July 7 and in the US on July 8.
