Thor: Love and Thunder gave us one of the all-time greats Marvel villains: Gorr the God-Butcher, played by Christian Bale. But one of the things that is interesting about Gorr is how different he is from the ultimate Marvel Big Bad, Thanos. In fact, when you put them side by side and compare their motivations and actions, you begin to see that they really represent the two different kinds Marvel Cinematic Universe bad guys – and that all Marvel villains are really made in one of these two molds.
In our latest Thor video, we look at Thanos and Gorr and compare and contrast them both. Then we look at how they represent two archetypes of Marvel villains that have been seen over and over in the first four phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Those who act out of concern for themselves, and those who act out of concern for others. To see who’s who and how almost every Marvel villain falls into one of these two categories, watch below:
