The villain of Thor: Love and Thunder, Gorr the Butcher of Gods, has an important connection in his history that links him to Venom. Will the first symbiote come to the MCU?
The new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder finally revealed the appearance of the next great villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gorr the Godbutcher, whose history is linked with Venom, which would lead us to the first symbiote in the MCU.

In the comics Gorr was created by Esad Ribic and Jason Aaron, who introduced him in the pages of Thor: God of Thunder #2 (November 2012).
After a series of tragedies that ended his family, Gorr witnesses the struggle of two gods, one dark and one golden, who asks him for help, which he refuses. After this reaction, the black god, who turns out to be a symbiote, joins Gorr to kill his opponent.
This symbiote is known as All-Black, which was part of Knull, the God of Symbiotes. Similar to Venom’s nature, Gorr can mold the shape-shifting symbiote to form armor around his body and produce weapons, which are limited only by his thoughts.
One of the weapons, the All-Black Necrosword, extends from his arms and is made of living darkness. The symbiote also provides him with the ability to regenerate.
Meet Knull, the God of Symbiotes
Knull made his debut in the pages of Venom #3 (June 2018). Although a part of this figure of worship was introduced in Thor: God of Thunder #2 (November 2012) by Esad Ribic and Jason Aaron (the same issue that Gorr debuted).
Knull was an ancient God of darkness, whose existence predates the universe as we know it. This character forged a sword (which was his symbiote) and used it to kill a Celestial, whose head he used to calm his symbiote.
In the King in Black event it is known that All-Black was the first symbiote, which joined Gorr, who found a way to end the Gods, traveling through the stars.
Even the logo that Venom has on his chest corresponds to Knull, the God of Symbiotes, although his similarity is to that of a spider.
Love and Thunder converge in the MCU
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced: a search for inner peace. But Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), a galactic assassin seeking the extinction of the gods, interrupts his plans.
To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, like the Mighty Thor.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder will feature an ensemble cast headed by Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tessa Thompson as Vakyrie.
Also in attendance are Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillen as Nebula, Russel Crowe as Zeus, and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit theaters on July 7, 2022.
