The (Norse) mythology surrounding Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder has already been explored quite a bit over the course of the three Thor films we’ve seen. One person who’s been conspicuous by their absence, though, is Beta Ray Bill, a fan favourite ally of the Asgardian’s from the comics.
The horse-faced Korbinite alien known for dressing like the God of Thunder and wielding his own version of Mjolnir has been teased in the MCU before, of course, but so far, we haven’t seen him show up in the flesh. And while that’s certainly a shame, it seems as if Marvel is hoping to change all that.
A source close to We Got This Covered has told us that in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we’ll see the debut of not only Beta Ray Bill, but also Quasar, another fan favorite from the source material who folks have been waiting to see in the MCU for a while now.
There’s no word yet on who may play these characters, or how exactly they’ll factor into things, but if you’ll recall, back in 2017, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told us that Bill was cut out of Ragnarork because his brief appearance didn’t do him justice, while also adding that “if you can’t do it justice, do it later.”
So while this intel from our source has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios, it sounds like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 just might be the ‘later’ that Feige teased a few years back. After all, the threequel is as good a place as any for Beta Ray Bill and Quasar to make their debuts, and with production expected to commence next year, we’ll hopefully get some confirmation on this sooner rather than later.
