Gorr is a fascinating villain that has an intriguing backstory behind him. He faced tragedy after tragedy in life and was apparently left abandoned by the gods. This made him bitter and he vowed to kill all gods, who he thinks failed in their duty to use their powers for the betterment of life. Now it turns out that the film originally had Gorr killing a few gods until this was changed.

However, Marvel went against it. This was reported by Joanna Robinson of The Ringer-Verse podcast (via ComicBook). They said: “Taika is on record as not being in director’s cuts. We know Jeff Goldblum, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey [were supposed to appear] and Simon Russell Beale appeared as Dionysus and had like two lines in this movie but has an above-the-line credit, so he was definitely supposed to be in this more. Gorr was definitely supposed to come in and kill a bunch of other people.”
