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?

    Alicia Vikander Hopes to Begin Production on Tomb Raider Sequel in 2021

    Alicia Vikander Hopes to Begin Production on Tomb Raider Sequel in 2021 Oscar winner and Tomb Raider star Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina) revealed that work on the highly-anticipated Tomb Raider sequel is expected to resume in 2021 (via Entertainment Weekly). RELATED: Black: Warner Bros. Adapting Superhero Comic Book Series into Film “The plan was for us to start making one this year, of course, due to the [pandemic] situation, that’s now very different. We’re still in discussions about it, so I hope we can probably get to it next year,” Vikander told Good Morning America. It was announced in September 2019 that Ben Wheatley (Free Fire, High-Rise) will direct the untitled sequel. Production on the MGM and Warner Bros. movie was initially planned for this year, with a release date originally set for March 19, 2021, but has obviously been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. The sequel is being written by Amy Jump, who is a regular collaborator with Wheatley. The two have previously worked on High-Rise, Free Fire, A Field in England, Sightseers, and Kill List together. Jump is taking over writing duties for Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons, who co-wrote the first movie. Plot details on the sequel are being kept under wraps. Graham King will once again produce through his GK Films banner.

In the movie, Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) and Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands). Roar Uthaug (The Wave) directed the film, and Graham King (The Departed) served as a producer through GK Films.
