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?

    Steven Soderbergh Assembles Ensemble Cast for HBO Max Thriller

    Steven Soderbergh assembles ensemble cast for HBO Max thriller As production gets underway on the crime thriller, Steven Soderbergh’s No Sudden Move, formerly titled Kill Switch, has assembled an ensemble cast including Don Cheadle (Ocean’s Trilogy), Benicio del Toro (Sicario), David Harbour (Black Widow), Jon Hamm (Tag), Ray Liotta (Marriage Story) and many more! RELATED: Steven Soderbergh Reveals He’s Written Sex, Lies, and Videotape Sequel Alongside the five, the star-studded roster will also include Amy Seimetz (The Secrets We Keep), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Brendan Fraser (Doom Patrol), Noah Jupe (Honey Boy), Bill Duke (High Flying Bird), Frankie Shaw (SMILF) and Julia Fox (Uncut Gems). Production on the film, which is following strict pandemic safety protocols, is currently underway in Detroit, Michigan. “The last time I shot a movie in Detroit with a great script and a great cast things worked out really well, so I’m very excited behind my mask right now,” Soderbergh said in a statement. Casey Silver (Mosaic, Godless) is attached to produce the project, which was penned by Bill & Ted Face the Music co-scribe Ed Solomon, and is one of two projects Soderbergh has set at the WarnerMedia streaming platform alongside the Meryl Streep-starring Let Them All Talk, which is expected to debut later this year. “It’s a pleasure to begin production on another project with Steven Soderbergh, Casey Silver and Ed Solomon,” Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max, said in a statement. “We have an incredible partner in Warner Bros. Pictures and an extraordinarily talented cast – we couldn’t be happier to bring No Sudden Move to HBO Max.” “Steven is a prolific, forward-thinking director who has a two-decade history of making movies at Warner Bros,” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing his legacy at WarnerMedia with his intense crime thriller.” Set in the 1950s Detroit, No Sudden Move will follow a trio of criminals who carry out a home invasion, only to wonder if they’ve been double-crossed when the job goes sideways.
