Gorr the God Butcher is a powerful character in Marvel Comics. If there’s any villain from the Thor comics who can come close to challenging the God of Thunder onscreen, it’s Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. The fights he’s endured in Jason Aaron’s run in Thor comics are signs of what Gorr will be capable of in the MCU. First and foremost, when it comes to Gorr’s powers, the major threat he possesses is his signature weapon, the Necrosword. His sword grants him all sorts of impressive abilities, one of which is super-strength which is on par with Marvel heavyweights like Thor, Hulk, Hercules, and Namor.

Gorr has a hunch about killing gods which is why he’s also known as Gorr the God Butcher. Initially in Comics, Gorr was successful in fighting Thor and has beaten and even killed several versions of the Asgardian god. Gorr is one of the most dangerous foes Thor has faced. In Thor: Love and Thunder, it’s being said that Gorr will take down Olympian gods, particularly Russell Crowe’s Zeus.  Disney+’s Moon Knight series’ Taweret could also be on the hit list.

Moon Knight Writer Jeremy Slater told in an interview that he doesn’t want to lose Taweret. He said, “I’d love to see Taweret it in there somewhere, as long as she’s not someone who’s getting butchered by Gorr.” 

Thor: Love and Thunder will premiere on July 8th.
