Thor: Love and Thunder ranks among Marvel Studios' most poorly reviewed movies, and while it isn't Rotten, it sits around the same level as Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk.
The movie was a disappointment, especially after Thor: Ragnarok, with a rushed story and some questionable creative decisions. Would these cameos have made a difference, though?
In some newly released concept art by Anthony Lee Winn, we learn that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster/The Mighty Thor was set to cross paths with villains like Fing Fang Foom, Shuma-Gorath, and Galactus! We're assuming this was meant to be a montage showing her adventures while Thor was off with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and it's a cool concept.
While Winn hasn't shed any light on how early into development these pieces were created, we're guessing it was long before the story took shape.
Remember, Deadpool and Proxima Midnight were included in concept art for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' cage fights, so it's likely the artist was having fun and throwing some ideas out there. Galactus was, however, considered for that meeting between the MCU's Gods, so it's entirely possible Thor: Love and Thunder nearly marked his debut in this world.
We're sure Marvel Studios is saving Galactus for bigger and better things, with the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot a strong possibility. We know Kevin Feige is keen to use the villain, though whether he'll be a foe to Marvel's First Family or the MCU as a whole obviously remains to be seen (it would be no bad thing for Galactus to be akin to Thanos and Kang).
