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?

    Doctor Strange 2 Writer Teases a ‘Very Sam Raimi’ MCU Sequel

    Ahead of Loki’s highly-anticipated premiere on Disney+, showrunner Michael Waldron has opened up about the process of rewriting Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through the pandemic. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Waldron confirmed that following Scott Derrickson’s exit, he and director Sam Raimi had to start the sequel “from scratch.”“I knew I wanted to stay in the family,” Waldron said being enlisted onto the Doctor Strange sequel, while Loki was about to start shooting. “I felt like Loki was in a great place and I was eager for what the next challenge would be.”He continued, “How do we just make a movie in two months? [He recalls thinking]. But COVID quickly descended upon us. We’re not shooting now until November. So I got to spend my 2020 on Zooms with Sam Raimi. Not too bad.”Waldron went on to share that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was inspired by a number of films including Indiana Jones, who he thinks is somewhat similar to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange. He also continued to tease that the sequel is going to be something that fans haven’t seen before in the MCU, describing it as “very Sam Raimi,” and an “incredibly visually thrilling,” film.“He’s Indiana Jones in a cloak to me,” He said. “He’s a hero who can take a punch. That’s what made those Harrison Ford heroes so great. Those guys get their asses kicked. Look at Stephen Strange in the first movie. He’s really getting beat up but he’s very capable and everything. I can tell you that it’s a ride…very Sam Raimi. The film is incredibly visually thrilling. John Mathieson, our D.P., who shot Gladiator and Logan—I think the look of it is going to be unlike anything you’ve seen in the MCU before.”RELATED: Kevin Feige Teases Multiple Versions of Loki in the Disney+ SeriesDescribed as the first MCU horror film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as he reprises his role as Dr. Stephen Strange.
