While the role has been shrouded in secrecy, we at Murphy’s Multiverse did hear LONG AGO that is was going to be a mo-cap heavy role. Nobody here is playing games and pretending we knew it was Gorr, but it’s good to know our source wasn’t TOTALLY off base. Gorr first appeared in 2012 in Jason Aaron’s Thor: God of Thunder #2 and proved to be one of Thor’s most capable enemies.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to hit theaters May 6, 2022.
