So far we’ve been shown Loki and Hela in the Marvel movies but Thor’s other brother almost showed up in Doctor Strange 2.
In the first movie Thor of 2011 we could see the great betrayal of Lokia very interesting character who has been evolving and now has his own series of Disney Plus. Then in Thor: Ragnarök the mighty one appeared Hello who died at the hands of Surtur. But now they have confirmed that we almost see Balder the Brave in Doc Strange 2.
The costume designer for the Sorcerer Supreme sequel, Graham Churchyardhas revealed that they started working on the design of the appearance of Thor’s other brother:
“We got very far in designing Balder el Bravo and then we were waiting, waiting and waiting for the casting. I took it to a prototype stage, we were sort of in design, gathering fabrics and ideas and waiting for an actor.”
“Poor Balder the Brave, he was almost in Thor 1, Thor 2 and Thor 3, if I can simplify that. So, it’s like, ‘Yay! He is going to show up! Poor guy. I’ve seen Marvel archive book designs of Balder’s helmet going back to Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. So, he’s been waiting a long time and I don’t think he’s going to show up any time soon.”
I was going to be part of the Illuminati.
The movie Doc Strange 2 showed us a powerful group of heroes from another Earth made up of Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell) Black Lightning (AnsonMount), Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch), reed richards (John Krasinski) and Professor X / Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). So supposedly among them was going to be Balder the Brave, but in the end they scrapped the idea. But who knows if soon we can see it, at least we know that the design is already done.
