We still haven’t gotten a trailer for Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder, but that hasn’t stopped the leaks from pouring in.
While previous merchandise leaks gave us a vague idea of what the plot might and entail and what the main characters would look like, this latest round gives a much clearer picture. Depending on whether or not you’re a fan of the comics, that may be a good or bad thing.
The first photos from the Marvel Legends collection for the film, posted by the account @Cosmic_Marvel, not only give us the best look at Natalie Portman’s Thor so far, they also reveal Gorr the God Butcher’s design.
Unlike his comic book counterpart, this version has a nose. Not sure if that will be a major dealbreaker for some, but it is what it is. It’s also unclear if maybe he might lose in the film (that’s a sentence I’d never thought I’d write).
Interesting enough, the figures also reveal that Thor will finally shed the weight he gained after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and become a full-fledged Ravager like Star Lord. Obviously, he won’t spend the entire film as one though, since there is also a version of him revealed with brand new armor that makes him look strikingly similar to his father, Odin.

Aside from Star Lord, we also get a good luck at a slightly older Groot, who seems to have a new set of weapons too.
With the long lead press tour presently underway for the film and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness just a few weeks away, we’re sure a first trailer is imminent but, until then, at least we have these leaks right?
