Thor: Love & Thunder’s Perfect Gorr Reveal Destroys Any Marvel Fan Concerns

While there were some concerns about
Thor: Love and Thunder and the depiction of its villain, the full reveal of Gorr the God Butcher has laid those fears to rest. One of the Son of Odin’s deadliest foes in the comics, Gorr is a terrifying character who wields incredibly dangerous power capable of killing the gods themselves. Officially debuting in the first full 
Thor: Love and Thunder trailer played by Christian Bale, it looks as though the MCU’s Gorr the God Butcher will be just as fearsome.,In the comics, Gorr the God Butcher was created by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribić in 2015, serving as the primary antagonist for their
Thor: God of Thunder run. Living in an extremely harsh environment, Gorr and his people heavily relied on their gods to protect them. However, the loss of Gorr’s family results in a dark crisis of faith. Because his prayers to save his family went unanswered, Gorr concluded his gods must not exist. However, he would later find out that the gods were indeed real but had simply ignored his people’s prayers. Coming into contact with a powerful weapon known as All-Black the Necrosword, Gorr gained the ability to punish his gods, murdering them all while vowing to kill every god in the universe.,Related: When Thor: Love & Thunder Takes Place In The MCU Timeline,While Gorr is much more exotic-looking in the comics, early images via toys and merchandise for 
Thor: Love and Thunder provided an initial look at the villain wearing white robes instead of black. He also looks much more human. Although this seemingly bland depiction led to some natural worries that the MCU’s Gorr wouldn’t do the incredibly dynamic villain justice, the 
Thor: Love and Thunder trailer proves that Gorr will be just as intimidating and fearsome as he bonds with the All-Black to make good on his dark vow of killing all the gods. This assuages any initial concerns about the character’s seemingly toned-down appearance.,As evidenced by the various shots of the new villain in the 
4 trailer, it looks as though Christian Bale’s Gorr will start out as a fairly normal-looking person. However, the trailer teases that Gorr will be transformed, becoming a horrifying monster obsessed with the eradication of every god he can find. As such, it seems as though Gorr’s story will match up well with his comics counterpart (even though the MCU has made changes to his appearance). While the MCU’s Gorr has a nose and is lacking head tails like a terrifying Twi’lek from 
Star Wars, the trailer proves that he’ll still be just as fearsome and terrifying as he wields All-Black the Necrosword.,All things considered, the teases that Gorr will have an on-screen transformation into the God Butcher is pretty exciting. Combined with some of the digital effects used to depict his corruption by the All-Black, it makes sense why the initial toy and merch images didn’t quite do his depiction justice. Following the trailer, the odds are strong that Gorr the God Butcher will be one of the most frightening villains in the MCU to date once
