Sorry, nothing in cart.
Marvel Studios’ second movie of the year, Thor: Love and Thunder, is closely approaching its release date and is set to bring a star-studded cast into the MCU narrative. Featuring A-list heroes like Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman’s Thors as they go against Christian Bale’s terrifying Gorr the God Butcher, the stage is set for something truly epic across the galaxy.
Bale’s introduction into the MCU has been highly touted since it was first announced, particularly after he made such an impact playing Batman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Now, he’s already had an effect on his castmates and fellow professionals in Love and Thunder, with director Taika Waititi describing him as the best villain in any Marvel Studios movie to date.
The second full trailer for Thor 4 gave fans the first look at Bale’s Gorr as he teased his mission to eliminate all the gods and showed just a hint of how powerful he truly is. Now, as the sequel inches closer to its July 8 release date, Marvel has shared new footage that gives fans more of an idea of what to expect from this terrifying antagonist.
Thor & Jane Shine in Love & Thunder Clips
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson shared the movie’s first full clips ahead of its July 8 release worldwide. The first clip features Thor, Jane Foster, Valkyrie, and Korg discussing Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher and the danger he poses to the universe.
Thor and Valkyrie discuss how Gorr “moves through shadows” and is headed to the Shadow Realm, which takes away all color surrounding anybody who goes there. This leads Jane to try to “bring the rainbow” as she shows off her new powers as Thor.
As the quartet debates what to do about Gorr, they decide to go to a place called “Omnipotent City,” which is where Russell Crowe’s Zeus and the other Greek gods reside.
A second clip shows Thor and Korg talking about Jane being his ex-girlfriend and reminiscing about her being “the one that got away” while pining for the reassembled Mjolnir. Thor subtly tries to summon the hammer back to him as it’s in Jane’s hand, but Stormbreaker comes to him instead.
