After a few sets of Thor: Love and Thunder behind the scenes photos surfaced overnight, a closer look at a particular photograph seems to hint at the first appearance of Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder in an MCU project. The animatronics don’t seem complete even though we seem to be able to see where the horns will go as they are set up for the shoot.

Based on Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, the goats that pull Thor’s chariot in Norse mythology, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder are heavily featured in Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor books, a run that we already knew to be inspiring the fourth Thor project. With Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) becoming the Mighty Thor, and Christian Bale portraying Gorr, The God Butcher, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder are yet another interesting addition to Taika Waititi’s feature. And considering the Kiwi’s iconic brand of humor, the comic relief these mystical goats could bring to the table is huge.
