Thor: Love and Thunder mark the return of Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, while Christian Bale is also set to make his MCU debut.
As per Kevin Feige-fashion, details of Bale's villain have remained somewhat secretive. But, a new LEGO set has provided us with an idea of what the character will look like in live-action.
Thor: Love and Thunder Lego Set Reveals First Look at Christian Bale's Villain
The Goat Boat LEGO set showcases Natalie Portman's Jane Foster clashing with Gorr the God Butcher, Bale's menacing adversary. Boasting a grey/white colour scheme, the antagonist seems to be comic book accurate in terms of visual appearance.
Both images showcase the heroes battling it out on a wooden boat upon snowy terrain. Could this be one of the set-pieces of the forthcoming sequel? The set also came with an interesting description, hinting at what's to come in the highly-anticipated sequel:
The longboat is drawn through the skies by legendary goats Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder, who are raised off the ground so kids can easily push the ship along as they play. The set includes 5 minifigures – Thor, Mighty Thor, Valkyrie, Korg and Gorr – and a host of weapons and accessories, including Thor’s Stormbreaker axe.
The LEGO sets also feature Jane and The God of Thunder, both of whom are boasting unique, colourful costumes. Portman's red cape and navy-blue armour of Thor confirm recent concept art leaks that showcased the two new looks.
Love and Thunder features the return of Tessa Thompson, who reprises her role as Valkyrie. The Creed star recently revealed her character's new look in an Instagram post.
Taika Waititi is coming off his Oscar win for Jojo Rabbit, with the filmmaker returning to the director's chair. He's bringing a stacked cast of Hollywood hitters into Thor's fourth solo outing, including Russell Crowe and Chris Pratt's Star-Lord.
