'Thor: Love and Thunder's early reactions have also brought with it some leaks. One of them claims to be about the opening scene that tells the origin story of Christian Bale's antagonistic character, Gorr the God Butcher. The movie, set after the events of 'Avengers: Endgame' follows Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder as he embarks on a new quest with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

While the movie may include some Guardians sequences, expect a chunk of it to be about Thor, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), and Gorr. The official synopsis reads, "Thor embarks on a journey unlike anything he's ever faced — a quest for inner peace. However, his retirement gets interrupted by Gorr the God Butcher, a galactic killer who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who — to his surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer. Together, they set out on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher's vengeance."

Does the movie open with Gorr's origin story?

According to a tweet by NoobMaster69 that was discussed on the theory platform, the first scene of 'Thor: Love and Thunder' is Gorr’s origin story. But the Reddit theory also adds that the origin story is not as “epic” as shown in the comics, but a more grounded version. For those unaware, Gorr was born on a planet that was pretty much hell, with starvation being one of the bigger threats. Taught to believe in the gods, his fervent prayers go unanswered as he grows up fighting and fending for himself. Tragedy strikes again when he loses his pregnant mate Arra to an earthquake while his son also dies. 

Left with one son, Agar, who eventually dies of starvation, Gorr explicitly lashes out against the gods and is exiled. Soon after, he watches as two gods battle in a desert. While one of them is known as Knull, a dark god, the other is shown to be begging for help. An enraged Gorr who realizes that mighty beings truly exist, uses the dark god's sword, that transforms into an all-black Necrosword, to kill the other mighty being. He then embarks on a journey to kill all the gods, earning his name as the God Butcher.

Whether this is the exact scene that the movie shows is uncertain. But by the looks of it, a recreation of this would still be impressive. With Marvel Studios pulling off powerful scenes over the last decade, Gorr's origin story could turn out to be one of the best opening sequences in the MCU.
