The official trailer for the upcoming Marvel film, Thor: Love and Thunder, has confirmed a major plot point. In the trailer we see Russell Crowe playing the character named Zeus in this standalone film from Hollywood’s Marvel universe. But we now know that his role ends with him dying – which is more than unfortunate. It makes sense after all. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has to face Russell Crowe’s Zeus’ demise to introduce Hercules in Phase 4.
Will Gorr The God Butcher Kill Russell Crowe’s Zeus In Thor 4?
In light of the recent events at Asgard, it’s unlikely that fans will be led to believe that the magic and powers of Thor: Love and Thunder will center on Gorr’s crusade. The story is likely going to center on the battle between Thor and Gorr instead. In this regard, Marvel included a character from Greek mythology to prove how vicious and dangerous Gorr is. This character would be Zeus, as he’s usually considered a God who wields great power by other deities. If they could somehow make this happen in the film then viewers might actually see how strong a villain Gorr really is. For example, he could kill Zeus which would certainly surprise people watching. It might seem extreme but these are treacherous times Marvel characters are living in. After defeating him, Gorr could even go so far as to assassinate every God on Mt Olympus.
Valkyrie Is Seen Using Zeus’ Thunderbolt In Thor 4’s Trailer
In the official trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder film, we see Valkyrie using the Thunderbolt rays while having a fight with Gorr the God Butcher. In addition to the fact that she is in possession of this power. It suggests that Russell Crowe might become a victim of the God Butcher.
This is entirely speculation that is assumed after watching the entire trailer of Thor: Love and Thunder. We’ll all know the rest once the film hits the theaters. With that being said, Thor 4 will hit the theaters on 8th July this year.
