‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Trailer Gives Best Look at Russel Crowe’s Zeus
With Marvel fans clamoring for any update regarding Marvel’s next big adventure, the latest Thor: Love and Thunder trailer has given the best look yet at Russel Crowe’s Zeus.
There are few Marvel films that have inspired the level of anticipation and elation as what is Marvel’s first fourth solo film, Thor: Love and Thunder.
Continuing revered director Taika Waititi’s revolutionary work on the character following Thor: Ragnarok, there is a palpable excitement to see what the creative duo can do next with the Norse god of the Marvel Universe.
With the film promotional campaign thus far giving fans an in-depth look at some of the most exciting debuts of the upcoming film, such as Gorr the God Butcher and The Mighty Thor, there is another very interesting development that has taken place over the first two sneak peeks of the movie.
The latest Thor: Love and Thunder trailer has given fans their best look yet at Russel Crowe’s Zeus, and it is a character that should play an interesting role in how the movie develops.
It will be very interesting to see how Crowe, and Waititi, go about exploring and portraying the character of Zeus; often deified in media, the king of gods has become problematic in various breakdowns of the true myths that have birthed the legend, and it seems as though Marvel has committed to this telling.
Zeus isn’t the God-like being that looks like the perfected man; he is slightly overweight, with a big beard, who is drenched in gold armor, with countless women at his side, and a vast audience that is cheering on his every spectacle.
It is a depiction that, we believe, will only add to the sympathetic plight of the film’s main antagonist; with Gorr the God Butcher being disillusioned by the selfishness, and betrayal, of the gods against the beings of the universe they had an obligation to defend and protect.
The character, and the setting of Mount Olympus, will certainly add an interesting dynamic to the movie overall, as Thor will likely have to walk the line between the selfish god that he used to be, and the hero he has become.
