The Marvel Cinematic Universe has always relied on smart and witty dialogue ever since its inception. Robert Downey Junior’s Iron Man is the prime example of this. However, ever since Takia Waititi overtook the Thor series after fans weren’t too big on Thor: The Dark World, it seems the funny magic is wearing off. 

Thor: Love & Thunder is making tremendous strides at the box office, having amassed a collection of $143 million so far in the U.S. The movie is being liked by audiences that love the goofy style of direction that Thor: Ragnarok also shared. Twitter users, on the other hand, aren’t happy. 

The film received a score of a mere 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. While there are movies in the MCU which have scored lower, nobody anticipated that to be the case with Love & Thunder. 

The critics on ‘Film Twitter’ seem to like it much lesser than other Thor flicks. While Thor has had a goofy character even in Endgame, the extra-comedic slapstick humor seems to be irritating MCU fans more than it’s keeping them engaged. Another recent MCU flick, Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, is also receiving hate from fans for being senseless at times.

Thor is still raking in a ton of cash, so some fans must love what has happened with the franchse. You can check out some of those critical comments below.
