The publication claimed that Taika’s display also upset the feathers of the bosses at Marvel’s parent company Disney.

“Not exactly the image they want to project regarding one of their biggest franchises,” a Thor: Love and Thunder production insider told the publication.

The insider claimed that while Taika is known as a “party animal,” the photos “crossed a line” for corporate bosses.
