Christian Bale, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to unveil a brand-new chapter for Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder. This time around, the Marvel hero will be joined by a slew of old and new allies such as Korg, Valkyrie, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the return of Natalie Portman's Jane Foster. Thor and his team of heroes are confirmed to be pitted against Christian Bale's Gorr the God Butcher, a Marvel villain known for slaying Gods across different mythologies. 

Despite knowing the villain, the plot details of Love and Thunder are still being kept under wraps, meaning that it still remains mystery on how Gorr will be introduced in the movie. While it's unknown how Thor and his allies end up on the radar of Gorr, the comics suggest that the villain is a force to be reckoned with. 

Now, ahead of the film's July 2022 release, a special look at the characters has been revealed.

This latest LEGO set teases a thrilling showdown between Team Thor and Gorr. The fact that Gorr can take all of them at once cements the villain's dominance, hinting that Thor and his allies will need a different kind of strategy to come out on top. 

Based on the LEGO set, it appears that the characters' ship is being used to travel in different worlds. The stormbreaker can be seen at the head of the ship, likely suggesting that it is used to open the Bifrost. 

It's possible that Team Thor finds out Gorr's plan, thus leading them to travel into different worlds to save the gods that are being targeted by the villain. Given that Gorr is present in the LEGO set, it looks like the villain discovers Team Thor's plan, ultimately leading to the fateful encounter. 

It is unknown who will come out on top, but it's safe to assume that the battle will be a visual treat for fans. 

Meanwhile, Gorr's MCU design appears to be a combination of the character's look from the comics and an updated live-action iteration. Gorr's Necrosword is also highlighted, and it's likely that the weapon will be vital to the film's narrative. 

All in all, this exciting LEGO set offers an interesting tease of what lies ahead in the sequel.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to premiere in theaters on July 8, 2022.
