Fat Thor was one of the best parts about Avengers: Endgame. His shocking new appearance was kept tightly under wraps – impressively so, in fact – right up until release day, with promotional material using footage from the character’s scenes in Avengers: Infinity War and Chris Hemsworth not mentioning anything about the transformation in interviews.
His beery despondency and sudden loss of confidence were touching, hilarious and very surprising, with the actor clearly relishing the chance to suit up as a far more vulnerable Thor than we’d ever seen before. It was also nice that he didn’t magically return to his previous form for the climactic battle, remaining as Fat Thor even as he hurled himself at the Mad Titan.
In fact, most people left the theater just wanting more of the character and thankfully, we now have exactly that thanks to this deleted scene that’s leaked online. It doesn’t contain any revelatory new plot details or anything, but it does give us some extra footage of Fat Thor and Rocket – one of our favorite MCU duos – and should entertain those who were left wanting more from this pair after leaving the theater.

Of course, this is just one of many deleted scenes, with several others expected to appear on the upcoming home video release. And with any luck, we’ll get even more of Fat Thor, who’s become something of an internet sensation since his debut.
After all, tons of fans have acknowledged and appreciated this unique depiction of a superhero – especially one as famous and beloved as Thor – and it’s even become a hot new cosplay at conventions across the globe. With all that in mind, we wonder if we’ll ever see the God of Thunder in tip-top shape again.
Frankly, we probably will, as we don’t imagine Marvel keeping him like this for long, but at least we’ll always have Avengers: Endgame to watch and relive all our favorite Fat Thor moments with over and over again.
