PETA has written a letter to Taika Waititi, the writer and director of Thor: Love And Thunder, asking him to make Thor vegan in the upcoming Marvel movie.
This news comes from CBR, who revealed that PETA had written a letter to Taika Waititi asking him to make Thor vegan in Love and Thunder.
One thing we still don’t know is whether ‘Fat Thor’ will still be a thing in this next Thor movie.
Personally, I hope not. It was funny for a bit on Avengers: Endgame, but the joke quickly wore off.
Here are some snippets of what was said in this letter to Waititi.
PETA representative Lewis Crary pointed out several reasons Thor should be depicted as vegan.
One of these reasons included the fact that actor Chris Hemsworth himself went vegan while shooting several Marvel films.
“According to his personal trainer, Hemsworth went vegan while filming the original Thor and Avengers films, developing a particular taste for beans and veggie burgers,” Crary wrote.

Crary went on to talk about how veganism falls in line with Thor’s love of the planet and always doing his upmost to save it.
“If Thor is serious about protecting the Earth, going vegan makes a lot of sense — axing animal products from his diet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water, 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions and 30 square feet of forest each day as well as the lives of nearly 200 animals a year!”
Honestly, I think it would be interesting to have Thor go vegan in the next Thor movie.
It would also explain how he was able to lose all that weight in between Endgame and Love and Thunder.
I also think Waititi could write in an amusing little joke about Thor becoming a vegan.
There’s also the fact that Chris Hemsworth’s brother, Liam, is a pretty hardline vegan.
I’m sure it’s something that Chris values and it would be a good thing for them to do in the upcoming Thor film.
