Kieron L. Dyer played Axl, son of Heimdall, in Thor: Love and Thunder, and ended up involved in a controversial VFX scene.
Since the premiere, several criticisms have been made, so much so that there was a small “update” in the launch of Disney+.
In an interview with ComicBookMovieDyer explained how he handled the situation.
“Yea. It was funny how they actually did it, because I thought I was going to be in the scene with the other actors at the time, but… What happened was, I was the only person there. I was sitting in this chair and the camera was very close to my face, focusing only on me.”
“The director, Taika (Waititi), was there saying the lines of dialogue, and how I should proceed. He showed me later how they filmed it (with the other actors) because I wasn’t there, physically. They worked separately and simply put my face in the scene.”
With $758 million raised, love and thunder is the franchise’s second-biggest commercial, having surpassed Thor: The Dark World, which made $644 million.
The lead, on the other hand, remains with Thor: Ragnarok, which made $853 million.
At the same time, this film has the second-worst rating in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing with just a 64% approval rating in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rotten Tomatoes.
That is, it is only behind Eternals with 47%, the only one in the MCU with a “rotten tomato” seal.
Thor: Love and Thunder is available on Disney+.
The new film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for self-discovery. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods.
To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – is wielding her ancient hammer, Mjölnir, like the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of Gorr’s revenge, and stop it before it’s too late.
