‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Censored in Malaysia

Malaysia confirmed on Wednesday that it censored Marvel Studios’ latest blockbuster “Thor: Love and Thunder” because it did not pass the country’s censorship guidelines.

Malaysian Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Zahidi Zainul Abidin said on Wednesday that the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia did not authorize “Thor: Love and Thunder” due to its lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender elements.

“Recently, there was a film that did not pass censorship that is the new Thor film. (The movie) touched on LGBT, but we see right now there are many films with LGBT elements that slip past the censorship,” Abidin said.

Abidin added that many films on TV which have passed the censorship process are “full of LGBT elements.”

“Now, there are many films on TV which passed (censorship) that are full of LGBT elements. So if there are those that slipped past censorship, we ask the community to help us,” Abidini said.

Golden Screen Cinemas, Malaysia’s largest cinema chain, announced on July 28 that “Thor: Love and Thunder” would not be screened in the country.
