Marvel Studios had a busy week following the unveiling of their film slate at San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next two phases were revealed by the studio, along with two major Avengers movies which will be released in 2025. Marvel is looking toward the future, but fans are still watching. Thor: Love and ThunderThe film features Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). Although there are many different designs for the villain, new concept art offers a glimpse at an alternative design.
Marvel Studios gave Gorr an alien appearance in the concept art. It was reminiscent of Star Wars. It has a white chest plate and a very cool skirt. It is a completely different design than the one in the film. However, fans would be fine with it if it happened. Check out the concept art!
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to feature the villainous Gorr the God Butcher, and reintroduce us to Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor. Chris Hemsworth previously described what it was like working with Bale on set, calling it “really scary”, and now the actor has detailed the villains complex backstory in a recent interview with D23 Magazine.
“[Gorr is]He’s not a simple villain… he has a lot of complexity. He’s not doing what’s expected. Hemsworth stated that he has a sincere motivation which makes him an interesting villain. You might not like his method of doing it but you get the reason he was pushed over the edge. It’s a really challenging one for Thor, because the set of questions Gorr’s posing does hold some truth—but he can’t let Gorr destroy the universe in the process. This makes it more dynamic than the simple good-guy vs.-bad guy scenario that we have seen before.
Marvel Studios describes Thor: Love and Thunder as follows: “The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), a galactic killer who wants to exterminate the gods, interrupts his retirement. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. They embark together on a dark cosmic adventure to unravel the mystery of God Butcher’s vengeance, and stop him before it is too late.
Taika Waititi will direct the film. The film stars Chris Hemsworth in the title role, Tessa Thompson in the role of Valkyrie and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor. Russell Crowe and Jaimie Alexandr as Lady Sif play the roles of Russell Crowe and Zeus. Chris Pratt plays the role as Peter Quill/Star Lord. Sean Gunn portrays Kraglin. Dave Bautista portrays Drax, the Destroyer. Karen Gillan is Gorr the God Butcher. Waititi will return to his role as Korg in the film, and he will also direct it.
