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?

    Mark Webber Looks Back On Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 10 Years Later Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs the World exploded onto the screen? Neither can Mark Webber, who discussed the cult classic while promoting his upcoming film The Place of No Words. Click here to purchase the cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs The World! RELATED: Watch the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Reunion Table Read! “Oh my God, yeah! Scott Pilgrim is the best,” Mark said. “That film means so much to me. Every single person that worked on that film still means so much to me and is a part of my life. And to have reconnected with everyone recently — we did a read for charity, for Water for People … and it was so rad to see everyone after these ten years — which is crazy to all of us that it’s been ten years. What the f**k? How did that happen?” Webber revealed that he and the cast knew at the time they were making something special. “I knew at the time — we all knew,” he said. “Yeah, it didn’t make the amount of money it was supposed to make at the box office, but we all knew we made a really incredible, special film. And so it feels extra special now having seen the generations of fans and the cult status the film has achieved is just so rad.” The actor then spoke about how he experienced the film as both a participant and a fan. “It’s cool to be able to watch a film that you’re in and feel that way. Every time I watch the movie it’s just so enjoyable. And being able to play my Sex Ba-Bomb albums in the car for the kids. They’re like, ‘That’s really you dad?’ And I’m like, yeah! It’s pretty awesome. I’m bragging to my pre-teen son that I’ve got 11 million streams on Spotify! Sex Ba-Bomb, this fictional band, actually ended up succeeding. It’s really a cool kick.” Finally, he ended by reiterating his love for cast and crew and his hope that Scott Pilgrim will continue to thrive in the annals of pop culture. “I love everyone on that film – we all have this really cool love for each other. And it’s really cool to see so many people rediscovering it and keeping it alive. It’s a bummer because the plan was it was going to hit theaters and be re-released, but then this situation we’re all in right now has turned everything upside down. It’s still nice that, despite the re-release not happening, it’s still being honored again.” RELATED: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Will Return To Theaters For Its 10th Anniversary Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starred Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a young man who falls hard for Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Ramona Flowers.
