Now, before you go getting thoughts of Thor doing a buddy comedy team-up with Zeus, I’ll remind you that Christian Bale is playing Gorr the God Butcher in the upcoming film. In other words, Zeus is likely to meet the nasty end of Gorr’s weapon of choice, All-Black the Necrosword. Of course, Zeus being a part of the story suggests that we’ll be seeing other God-like beings from Olympus being slain, so be sure to wear a poncho. After all, god blood does not wash out.
