What’s been a mystery since Phase 2 can finally be solved by Thor 4’s Gorr the God Butcher. It is important to note that, while creating the world of Guardians of the Galaxy, questions were raised about the character of the Celestials. Thor 4 could be the next MCU film to feature these magnificent, all-powerful beings.
The upcoming big-screen adventure of the Mighty Avenger looks like it will take a look at some familiar and unfamiliar MCU characters. Asgardian characters will be joined by Russell Crowe’s Zeus, head of the Greek pantheon and Hercules’ father. In light of the film’s villain, more could be shown, which makes sense given the circumstances. After defeating Hela and Thanos, Thor and his allies will face off against Gorr, the God Butcher in the film. Gorr is a fictional alien who roams the galaxy, waging a vengeful war against the gods of all faiths. It’s a given that Bale’s character will target gods like Zeus and Thor in the MCU version of the story.
Marvel’s Phase 2 Celestial Mysteries can only be fully explained by Gorr. There was a sense that the Celestials were a part of the MCU’s history. Thus, no longer a concern for its present-day characters, the Collector gave Star-team Lord’s a brief overview of the Celestials in Guardians of the Galaxy. That the Collector’s base was built on the head of a fallen Celestial lent credence to this idea is reflected in the name, Knowhere. Even though Celestials such as Eternal Judge Arishem the Judge appeared in Eternals, it appears that some event in the MCU’s history pushed them to the side. Gorr may have wiped out their entire population, leaving only a small remnant in the cosmos as an explanation.
Marvel wants to know why cosmic beings, who have used their powers to create life across the many galaxies in the MCU, have been missing for so long. Gorr the God Butcher is home to a single In light of their power and the fact that they’re usually referred to as “The Space Gods,” it’s safe to say that Gorr would consider them to be part of his domain. Gorr’s signature weapon, All-Black, the Necrosword, may have already killed them. In the comics, the weapon was designed by Knull to kill the Celestials.
Assuming Gorr is in charge of Celestial annihilation could be a problem for his own power. A defeat by Thor at the hands of a man who could pull off such a feat would seem like an improbable outcome. It’s possible, however, that Gorr could pull it off, especially given his likely possession of All-Black. Gorr’s sword’s backstory can also be used to explain the Celestials’ demise, instead of relying on Gorr’s own past deeds. They may find out about Gorr’s weapon in Thor 4. This was the same weapon that was forged by someone who attacked and killed the Celestials a long time ago.
