That said, during Avengers: Endgame, Thor looked almost the same as the game version after he became an alcoholic in the movie.

“I think there’s something so fantastic in that that not everything needs to be this glistening muscle hulk kind of concept to still be fantastic and powerful and intimidating. I wanted him to almost feel like a man child, you know, like if you had that much power and you can do those things, you're not going to grow. You don't need to. You just do what you want"

As such, this version of the God of Thunder will be one for the books, and we can't wait until God of War: Ragnarok releases on PS4 and PS5. So, make sure to follow us for more God of War news and updates.
