‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Delivers Woke Camp, Not MCU Thrills

We thought “Batman and Robin” would forever prevent superhero films from aping ’60s-era camp.

Taiki Waititi didn’t get the memo.

The director’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” veers dangerously close to full-on Pow! Bam! Zoom! If you thought Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” pushed the MCU’s comedic elements too far, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.

And it’s a terrible choice Waititi abandons mid-movie. By then, it’s too late.

We reunite with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in the middle of a God-life crisis. He’s bored, distracted and unable to rouse himself for anything save superheroics. We learn this from a cheeky backstory told by Waititi’s Korg, the craggy creature whose increased presence is a sign of Waititi’s clout.

Translation: No one on set told the director...
