Disney has updated that Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder will not be released in Malaysia after all (we saw it coming, didn’t we?).
Although no official reasons were given, Malaysian netizens have inklings as to why the movie is ‘banned’ from showing in the nation.
Some of the speculations include depictions of LGBT, a bit of nudity and god-like beings of other religions in the film.
