While Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the next Marvel Studios film to hit theaters, many have already set their sights toward Chris Hemsworth’s next outing: Thor: Love and Thunder. The project will see the return of director Taika Watiti, whose previous MCU outing, Thor: Ragnarok, ranks among many fans’ favorite Marvel films.
This time, the titular hero won’t be alone as Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will be tagging along once again. However, circumstances will be different: she too will be a God of Thunder, wielding Odinson’s formerly shattered hammer, no less.
The villain of the piece will be Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher, who will aim to live up to his name. Besides that, details of the project’s plot are still scarce. Though, more tend to leak the closer fans get to the film’s release.
Recently, a new LEGO set from the upcoming movie showed off a mysterious-looking creature attacking New Asgard, alongside Gorr and both Thors protecting the city. But just what is that strangely designed monster?

Thanks to a new report from The Cosmic Circus, more details have emerged about the upcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder. More specifically, in regards to the recent LEGO set leak, which shows Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher and a mysterious monster attacking New Asgard.
According to the site, a reliable source revealed that the mysterious being is brought to life in the movie from a child’s drawing, explaining its odd appearance.

The first thing that comes to mind is simply how perfect the whole situation would be for Taika Watiti’s brand of crazy. But what are the details behind the actual scene?
One possibility is that the mysterious creature is one of Gorr’s Black Berserkers, minions he was able to summon thanks to his Necrosword. The clear problem with this, at least in relation to the possible information from The Cosmic Circus, is how there isn’t any connection to a child’s drawings.
Another option the site theorizes would be Kei Kawade. In the comics, the character can bring drawings to life, which often translate into Kaiju-sized monsters. While a core child actor was cast for a role under the name of Zappa in the project, it would still be an odd choice to even bring this character into the film in the first place, no matter the form.
Kawade has no connection to Thor or even Gorr the God Butcher in the comics. It’s hard to see what his place in the film would be besides feeding Waititi’s crazy antics.
Thor: Love and Thunder will release in theaters on July 8, 2022.
