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?

    Warner Bros. and Spotify Team Up for Batman Unburied Scripted Podcast

    Warner Bros. and Spotify Team Up For Batman Unburied Scripted Podcast Back in June, Warner Bros. and Spotify unveiled a deal to create DC scripted podcasts. Now, the first-ever scripted Spotify podcast has been revealed. Spotify has announced that Batman Unburied will be released in 2021. The new podcast will “explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology.” The Dark Knight trilogy co-writer, David S. Goyer, wrote the story for Batman Unburied and will executive produce the podcast. “I’ve been a fan of narrative podcasts for some time and was looking for the right story — returning to Batman seems like the perfect opportunity,” said Goyer in a statement. “We’ll also be using the unique advantages of audio to dig into the more nightmarish members of the Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery.” Additionally, Goyer’s production company, Phantom Four, is teaming up with Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content to produce the podcast. However, Spotify hasn’t announced any additional writers yet. Spotify’s Dawn Ostroff also shared a statement about Goyer’s involvement with the new Batman podcast. “David Goyer is an exceptional talent, and we can think of no better leader to leverage the infinite possibilities of podcasting to bring the nearly 300 million Spotify users around the world a Batman saga for the ages.” More DC scripted podcasts are also likely to follow Batman Unburied in 2021.
