According to sources, of varying authority, Lena Heady, Jeff Goldblum and Peter Dinklage were all reportedly cut from Thor: Love and Thunder. Getting straight to it, here are the facts first. Variety reports that Heady (Game of Thrones) was cut from the movie in a part she was asked to play personally by Taika Waititi.
This has apparently all become public due to a legal dispute with a company claiming to represent Heady. Essentially, they claim she owed them money and she says she doesn’t. One of the things they wnat money for is her appearance in Love and Thunder. However the actress says she got that job personally form Waititi. Additionally apparently the role didn’t even make it into the final cut.
We also know from a recent interview with Prensaescenario that Christian Bale has spoken about some great scenes that were cut between himself and both Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster and Peter Dinklage’s Eitri. Following on from this a popular leaker for the MCU Greatphase claims that the scenes which were cut were death scenes for both characters at the hands of Gorr. We cannot say for certain though whether this rumor is correct. We also cannot say if this means neither character gets a scene in the movie. However most fans are assuming that is probably the case.
Yeah he killed Grandmaster and Eitri and I guess marvel wanted to keep them alive at the end of the day. https://t.co/Yxbmcj84zG

I guess that rough four hour cut I reported yesterday is sounding more appealing. We want to see these deleted scenes. Though maybe it’s best not to kill Eitri and Grandmaster off like that? I guess it depends what kind of plans Marvel Studios may have for them in the future? Or, whether they were simply cut for other reasons by Waititi?
