Thor: Love and Thunder’s short runtime meant that there were various deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut. This was reportedly due to Marvel Studios’ mandate that Thor’s fourth solo movie couldn’t have a runtime that exceeded two hours.
One of those scenes revolved around Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster from Thor: Ragnarok. Previous evidence indicated that Goldblum was seen with the cast of Thor 4 in Sydney, Australia during production for the MCU sequel, leaving fans to believe that he was involved in Chris Hemsworth’s next Marvel adventure.
Gorr actor Christian Bale confirmed that Grandmaster was supposed to show up in the movie, but his role was ultimately scrapped. Thor 4 director Taika Waititi explained why Goldblum’s MCU character didn’t make the final cut, saying that even if a scene is “the most funniest thing or intriguing thing” on its own, he knows that it works “best for the film” to leave it out when needed.
Now, a special look at Goldblum’s deleted scene has been revealed.
