The current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems shrouded in secrecy even more so than ever before. From the marketing of Spider-Man: No Way Home and going forward, the MCU fanbase is filled with speculation of what may come, for good reason. To be sure, the highly anticipated 4th installment of the Thor franchise – Thor: Love and Thunder is no different. With just under 3 months left until it’s release and no trailer, every glimpse of the movie is creating a stir.
Thor: Love and Thunder is coming off the heels of what’s considered one of the best films in the MCU. We’ll see many fan favorite characters in this movie return and one of its most powerful villains from the comics. Gorr the God Butcher will be introduced, a legendary figure from the comics. Therefore, many fans believe he will live up to his name, the God Butcher. Gorr’s lore is strong and has the possibility of turning the MCU upside down. So it stands reason that a first glimpse is highly anticipated.

A new photo of the Marvel Legends Series figures for Thor Love & Thunder has made its way online and this might be the closest we have gotten to the look of all of the characters we are expecting to see. Set photos of Christian Bale’s Gorr were released on Twitter months ago, and they connect with the look shown here. Gorr’s appearance here differs quite heavily from his illustrated counterpart. From the looks of this picture, the characters looks seem to be set for the movie when it releases on July 8th of this year. See the image below:
The introduction of Gorr into the MCU definitely has my attention and I am excited to see where the movie takes us. Personally, I like the look of all of these figures except Gorr’s. His appearance reminds me of Boris Karloff’s The Mummy. I hope that it transfers better to the screen. However, I am more than excited for Christian Bale’s performance. It’s set to be a truly incredible spectacle and impressive entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Clearly, I cannot wait.
