According to a new report by The Ankler's Jeff Sneider (via The Direct), Thor: Love and Thunder is currently undergoing some reshoots for Bale's Gorr, in Manhattan Beach California. Sneider also revealed that the ongoing reshoots are mainly the reason why the film's trailer has not yet been released to the public.

Reshoots are very common with any film, especially in the MCU. Even the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel was reportedly doing some reshoots in recent months. These reshoots are not much of a concern, though it remains a mystery what Taika Waititi is trying to incorporate into Bale's Gorr villain.

While Thor: Love and Thunder hasn't released any promotional material yet, such as trailers and teasers, it's safe to assume that Marvel Studios is currently on board with their latest projects, Oscar Isaac's Moon Knight and the upcoming Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness.

Given the ongoing reshoots, Thor: Love and Thunder is still pushing a scheduled release date, July 8 of 2022.
