    ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ Suffers The Worst Box Office Decline For Any MCU Movie

    At the worldwide box office, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is getting closer and closer to breaking the $500 million mark. Despite this, the movie had one of the worst drops for a Marvel film in its second weekend of release.

    The film directed by Taika Waititi had a drop of 68 percent between its first and second weekends in theatres, putting it on par with the drops experienced by ‘Black Widow’ and ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

    At the box office, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is following in the footsteps of the previous Marvel film and doing things exactly the same way. It has ticked on all of the criteria, beginning with a roaring start, growing steadily, and then experiencing a significant decline over the second weekend. The film starring Chris Hemsworth was one of the movies that people were looking forward to seeing the most this year.

    Fans who applauded Taika Waititi’s ability to craft a humorous superhero movie gave it a variety of reviews, although most of them were positive. Despite the fact that some people didn’t think it lived up to the standard set by its predecessor, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. It has received mostly negative reviews from critics, earning a score of 6.9 out of 10 on IMDb and 68 percent on Rotten Tomatoes respectively.

    Now, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ have taken another blow to the abdomen as Chris Hemsworth starrer had a significant decline in ticket sales over the course of its second weekend in theatres. The superhero sequel had a drop in revenue of 68 percent, earning only $46 million domestically in the United States and Canada. This represents the most significant drop in revenue in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Thor 4 has received an overwhelming amount of negative and positive feedback, as seen by its below-average score of B+ on CinemaScore and its score of 68 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Fans had a variety of justifications for their dislike of the film, including the fact that some of them were expecting more MCU links, others didn’t like the way certain characters were handled, and many of them thought the film’s excessive comedy to be a bit too much.

    Love and Thunder is Taika Waititi’s follow-up film to the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Ragnarok, in which he reimagined Thor as a more humorous figure; he took much of the same spirit with him when he directed Love and Thunder.

    Fans have not fallen nearly as much in love with the director’s approach this time around, as many were looking for a more somber Thor in the aftermath of his dark despair in ‘Avengers: Endgame’.

    That does not mean that the comedy in itself cannot be questioned; rather, it just indicates that Thor does not always have to be a solemn figure, as is the case with the vast majority of heroes.

    However, it’s possible that the reactions to Love and Thunder may convince Marvel Studios to steer Thor’s next journey on a more ominous and Norse-inspired path.
