From the moment Thor: Love and Thunder was slated to be released in Malaysia, it has faced one obstacle after another.

It was first delayed by two weeks to July 21, before Disney announced that it would be “postponed indefinitely”, leaving fans to wonder what could have caused it to face such difficulties.
