Gorr the God Butcher Appears in Thor Love and Thunder Trailer
Marvel Studios has released the latest trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, which is scheduled for release in July. The trailer, which was released Tuesday (24/5), finally features Christian Bale as the villain, Gorr the God Butcher.
The 2.15 minute video opens with Korg (Taika Waititi) telling a story about Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth).
"Son, get the popcorn ready. I'll tell you a story about the space viking, Thor Odinson," said Korg. "He is no ordinary human. He is a god."
This trailer further showcases Thor's journey after the events of Ragnarok and Endgame. In Love and Thunder, Thor begins to rise from adversity after losing many things he loves.
He seems to be training to reshape his athletic body, visit New Asgard which is now home to his people, and join in on a new adventure against criminals.
In addition, this trailer also shows the characters who will appear in Love and Thunder. One of them is Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Thor's ex-lover who is now The Mighty Thor.
Foster, who previously only briefly appeared at the end of the Thor: Love and Thunder teaser, is now shown more clearly. In the trailer, he also had a dialogue with Thor after a long time no see.
"How long haven't you seen, three, four years?" said Jane Foster.
"Eight years, seven months, and roughly six days," Thor replied, indicating that he had failed to move on from his ex.
The meeting seemed to re-open Thor's feelings of love for Jane Foster that had been hidden for so long. However, he seems to deny that he still has feelings of love.
The trailer then switches to featuring the film's main villain, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). He is described as a creature whose ambition is to kill all the gods in the universe out of revenge.
"The only thing the gods care about is himself. So this is my oath: all the gods will die," said Gorr.
Christian Bale transforms into Gorr the God Butcher with an almost unrecognizable look. He turned into an alien figure with gray skin and wearing the same colored hood.
The appearance of Gorr the God Butcher is an alarm for Thor to prevent the villain from causing trouble. He also works with Mighty Thor, Korg, and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to face Gorr.
In addition, they are also assisted by the Guardians of the Galaxy who are certain to appear in this film. On the other hand, Russel Crowe will also be present as Zeus who looks to be an important part of the story of this fourth Thor film.
Thor: Love and Thunder is part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is being directed by Taika Waititi, who previously directed Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
Thor: Love and Thunder is slated for release on July 8.
