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?

    David Koepp Explains Why Steven Spielberg Ditched Indy 5

    Indiana Jones 5: David Koepp Explains Why Steven Spielberg Ditched the Project It’s been seven long months since it was announced that Logan’s James Mangold would replace Steven Spielberg as director of Indiana Jones 5. And since that time, not much has been revealed about the project. Thankfully, former Indy 5 screenwriter and frequent Spielberg collaborator David Koepp recently sat down with Den of Geek and shed some light on the famed director’s departure, which at least provides some semblance of closure for fans. RELATED: Star Wars HasLab Razor Crest is Fully Funded, Stretch Goal Announced “I tried a couple different versions with Steven and they all had some good stuff about them and they all had some stuff that didn’t work, which happens. But it was just very hard to have everybody come together and have all the elements — Steven, Harrison (Ford), the script and Disney — come together at once. And it didn’t,” Koepp said. Obviously, Koepp couldn’t reveal any details about the story, but he did reveal that the handoff to Mangold was amicable. “When James Mangold came in and Steven stepped out, that was a pretty logical breaking point,”Koepp told Den of Geek. “It’s a gracious time to step out the door because I think the last thing a new director wants is the old director’s writer. I mean, that’s a drag. The last thing you need is some guy sitting around with his arms folded saying, ‘Well, the way Steven would have done it is…’ I had one nice friendly conversation with him and then I’m sure he wanted to be able to move on anyway. Everybody was pretty polite, I thought.” RELATED: James Cameron Says Filming on Avatar 2 is 100% Complete Honestly, Spielberg never seemed all that enthusiastic about another Indiana Jones adventure. Hell, he wasn’t excited to do Kingdom of the Crystal Skull until George Lucas practically forced the project on him. At any rate, it’s probably best for someone else to dust off ole Indy and pump some fresh life into the franchise. Hopefully, Mangold can do just that! Indiana Jones 5 is still set for a July 29, 2022 release, though that date could change faster than Elsa Schneider’s allegiances.
