New Thor: Love And Thunder Trailer Features Christian Bale’s Gorr The God Butcher And He Looks Metal

Marvel Studios has released a new Thor: Love and Thunder trailer that runs more than two minutes long and features a ton of new footage, especially compared to the teaser trailer released last month.  The new trailer features extended looks at scenes from the teaser, like when Thor realizes Jane Foster is back and now wielding Mjolnir. It also contains new footage of Korg, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the villain of Taika Waititi’s latest Thor film, Gorr the God Butcher. For comic fans, one look at Christian Bale’s Gorr, and it’s immediately apparent that this is a very different take. Gorr is typically more alien-looking but still humanoid. Bale’s Gorr looks very much like a human, and it’s not surprising because if you’re going to hire someone like Bale to play a villain, why not squeeze out as much as you can by reminding folks that this is Bale.  However, regardless of where you fall on “he’s too human” or “I like it,” it’s hard to disagree that Bale’s Gorr is appropriately metal. Right off the bat, Gorr the God Butcher is an incredible title to hold if you’re a villain. Couple that with his first announcement – that all gods need to die, including Thor – and his design, which features black-tipped fingers, a planet-shattering weapon, and a black liquid that runs out of his mouth, and Gorr might be the most metal MCU villain yet.    For more, watch the first Thor: Love and Thunder teaser trailer and then listen to this episode of From Panel To Podcast, which is Game Informer’s comic book podcast, to hear us talk about Thor: Love and Thunder.  What did you think of this trailer?

    PSVR Is Backwards Compatible With PS5, But You'll Need A Different Camera

    Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are killing it when it comes to backwards compatibility, including in the realm of VR. While PSVR will work on PS5, including PS4 VR games with it, there is one oddity that players should keep in mind: the PS5 camera won’t work with it. And you’ll need a PS4 DualShock controller.

    In order to use PSVR, players will need the headset, the Move Controllers, and a camera. While working on the PS5, PSVR is confirmed not to be compatible with the PS5 camera, so if you’re trading in your old system make sure to keep that little tidbit for yourself. 

    In a recent confirmation found on the Sony FAQ page, the company confirmed that incompatibility with the updated camera: 

    Yes, PlayStation VR games are included among the thousands of PS4 games that are playable on PS5. Please note that playing PS VR games on a PS5 console requires a PS VR headset, DualShock 4 wireless controller or PlayStation Move controller(s), and PS Camera (for PS4), which are sold separately from the PS5 console. Also, the PS5 HD Camera is not compatible with PS VR on PS5. You’ll need to use the PS Camera (for PS4), and the PS Camera adaptor (no purchase required), to use PS VR on PS5.

    If you want to play PSVR, PS4 titles included, on your new PS5, you’re going to need to keep your PS4 camera. You’ll also need to use the included PS Camera adaptor, which thankfully comes with the system. 

    For those that don’t already have a PlayStation 4 system or the camera, you’re going to need to purchase a PS4 DualShock controller and the PS4 camera separately. It’s a little weird for Sony to handle the PSVR compatibility this way, but at the very least the adapter is free for those that have this gen’s camera. 

    As for the system itself, PlayStation 5 officially arrives on November 12. Pre-orders went fast, so hopefully launch day will bear better fruit for those hoping to dive into next gen on day one.
