Marvel fans are all set to see a brand new villain known as Gorr the God Butcher played by the extremely talented Christian Bale in the Thor: Love and Thunder.
As per comics, Gorr is an alien with a passionate disdain for all Gods. Due to the same, he decides to kill all the Gods with his powerful weapon “All – Black” the Necrosword.
In the comics, Necrosword could tie to another Marvel property linking Marvel multiverse.
All-Black was first introduced in Thor: God of Thunder #2 by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic and it is completely black.
And it was actually made by the Knull who is the God of Symbiote and was the first symbiote.
After the weapon left Knull, it found it way to Gorr and gave him powers and strength of the souls Knull possessed along with “immortality”
And there is another well-known symbiote is set to appear in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
In the sequel of Venom, a serial killer Cletus Kasady returned and gains a symbiote ally in Carnage.
Cletus then goes to cause a havo due to the abilities the suit gives him.
Now that Gorr is appearing in Thor: Love and Thunder, Carnage may be getting his calling too.
In the comics Absolute Carnage by Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, Carnage returns from the dead to foretell Knull’s forthcoming conquest of Earth. As a result of Knull, Carnage becomes even more powerful than before and is an even more dangerous foe for Venom.
That makes the scenario possible that Gorr and his destruction across the galaxy could awaken Knull as the next big threat to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In case Gorr loses All Black towards the end of Thor: Love and Thunder, it could just return to the previous owner aka Knull that would imply that another film universe may officially be joining the MCU canon.
However, the bigger takeaway is that it could set up in Venom: Let there Be Carnage, all thanks to Carnage’s appearance and ties to the symbiote God.
Possibly, the Venom sequel could drop us some hit showing Carnage drawing his spiral symbol and announcing the arrival of Knull.
As the Venom series connects to the MCU, it was reported so by the sources though there is still not any concrete confirmation on if this semi multi-verse with the Disney & Sony studios on if it is truly connected.
However, with Gorr wielding All- Black, the gap is getting smaller to welcome the Symbiotes in the MCU.
There is still a lot of speculation about if and how Sony and Marvel films would connect the larger MCU.
But with the news of Thor: Love and Thunder introducing Gorr, the possibility just keeps on growing.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to hit the theatres on October 15 while Thor: Love and Thunder will be out on May 6, 2022.
