While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have already stormed “Thor: Love and Thunder” to the top of the box office – some of them are crazy about one “graphic” scene.
Some outraged viewers are requesting Marvel to issue a “trigger warning” for a “horrible” moment with a main character.
The brewing impact has already yielded something other Marvel diehards dragging the more fragile fans because they are “stupid.”
WARNING: Spoilers ahead for “Thor: Love and Thunder.”
In a pivotal scene from the new blockbuster movie, Natalie Portman’s character – scientist Jane Foster – receives the surprising news that she has stage four cancer – before donning a superhero suit and becoming the mighty Thor.
There is a plot point in the film that shows Jane undergoing chemotherapy treatments for her illness – and some fans are demanding that a warning be added to future showings.
The offended parties argue that the scene could be harmful to some who have cancer or know loved ones who have suffered from the disease.
“No spoilers, but Thor: Love and Thunder should have had a trigger warning for a cancer graphic and the fact that we didn’t know we were going in is horrendous.” a user wrote on Twitter recently.
Another person agreed“People’s reactions to the suggestions of trigger warnings for Thor really make me realize how cold, disgusting and cruel people can be.”
They continued, “People deserve to know what emotions they want to feel when they might want to have a good time at the cinema.”
another fan pleaded: “Stop misinterpreting and spreading misinformation. These are really sensitive issues and can trigger people. I panicked until I knew the context. PLEASE!”
However, there were many other fans who berated other movie viewers for asking Marvel for a warning and calling them “stupid†
“Trigger Alerts? Seriously? Are people so weak of mind that you can’t handle a dramatic scene. It’s not like this is the first movie to do this. How stupid,” said one.
“As a cancer survivor, I find this extremely stupid,” says one user wrote in a response to an artel about the trigger warning.
