Gorr the God Butcher is the latest villainous character of Marvel Comics. The character was created only 8 years ago by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic. Gorr is an alien creature, who loses his homeland. Gorr seeks revenge from Gods to betray the people of his homeland.
Gorr thinks the Gods are not helping them despite the people’s prayers. Gorr then decides to beat all the Gods he can. He sets himself on a mission to kill every God of the cosmos and thus face Thor: The God of Thunder.
Contract for Multiple Movies?
There are rumors that the former Dark Knight will continue his MCU contract for more movies. One of the MCU insiders Daniel Richtman is giving positive hints at the rumor. According to Daniel, Bale will return after the Thor: Love and Thunder’s release. Though there is no such official news regarding the contract or any such thing from MCU till now.
