The return of the Guardians of the Galaxy will also find space in this new adventure, while the villain will be Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), a galactic killer who seeks the extinction of the gods. Also confirmed the return of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Korg (Taika Waititi).
Created by Jason Aaron during his much appreciated handling of the Thunder God stories, Gorr pursues a personal crusade against all the gods, whom he deems guilty of betraying the faith that the faithful have towards them. A belief born after the end of his own world, whose destruction was not prevented by the gods begged by his people.
At the moment Marvel Studios have not yet released an image showing the official look of the villain on the net, but Jason Aaron has invited fans to stay calm. Thor: Love & Thunder will arrive in Italian cinemas on 6 July.
