There is little doubt that fans are already hyped up for Thor: Love and Thunder. After all, it's set to be the second Marvel Cinematic Universe film to be released this year and will feature Academy Award winner Christian Bale as the main villain. But what will Bale's character look like in the highly anticipated sequel? A new leak may have revealed our first look at Gorr the God Butcher!

Back in 2020, fans were delighted when it was finally announced that Christian Bale is joining the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder and that he will be playing the main villain. Since then, there have been several set photos that surfaced but none that revealed Bale's look in the movie. Interestingly, the leak comes from two LEGO sets that will be released along with the film and one even features Jane Foster fighting Gorr. Check it out here.

It's just a small glimpse at Gorr but it does confirm that the villain will be wielding the Necrosword. The all-black weapon is an ancient one and it is certainly something to look forward to later this year.
