Marvel has just dropped some amazing news on Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 that looks set to shake up the MCU in several ways.
This comes in the form of Beta Ray Bill!
News outlet We Got This Covered broke the story yesterday and if you’re a huge Thor fan then this is definitely the kinda news that you’ve been hoping for.
Whilst the background of Thor has been pretty heavily covered in the MCU films, fan favourite Beta Ray has always been missing from the movies but Guardians 3 is set to rectify this. The character was originally meant to cameo in Ragnarok, however, at the time Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said that his brief appearance was cut because it didn’t do him justice.
Fiege is said to have stated “if you can’t do it justice, do it later” and it looks like Guardians 3 is the perfect time for this.
Beta Ray Bill Biography
For those who don’t know Bill’s life force and consciousness were transferred by scientists of his race into the body of an alien carnivorous equine-like beast that had been bionically restructured into a cyborg. The horse looking creature has been known to don a similar costume to Thor and has also wielded Stormbreaker in the comics. He possesses vast superhuman strength, speed, stamina and durability, and a highly extended lifespan. Not only is he one of the best hand to hand fighters in the MCU, he’s also able to go toe to toe with Thor which makes him a great character to bring into the Universe.
FULL ENDGAME SPOILERS
Now from here on out it’s full spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame so if you haven’t seen it yet then I highly suggest that you turn off now.
But, at the end of that film, we saw Thor leaving New Asgard with the Guardians Of The Galaxy and whilst we never got confirmation that the character would be in their next outing, for me this pretty much confirms it.
There’s really no other reason to bring Bill into the film if Thor isn’t with them and I’m so hyped that the characters will now all be part of the same movie.
I can see Bill probably starting off as a villain before joining the group and maybe even becoming a close Ally of Thor’s similar to Korg and Meik.
Obviously I’d love to hear your thoughts on this breaking news and if you’re excited to see the character make his big MCU debut.
