Gorr the God Butcher reference was cut out from the Moon Knight series, Confirms Head Writer

The Moon Knight series on Disney+ was awesome. This series includes the dissociative identity disorder of Marc Spector who is sharing his body with Steven Grant, later in the post-credit scene of Moon Knight we get to know not the one Marc Spector is sharing the body with but one more identity is there that is Jake Lockley. We get many hints in the series of Jake Lockley but in the full Moon Knight series, we didn’t get to see Jake Lockley. Another deleted reference scene was there, and that was related to Thor: Love and Thunder villain Christian Bale‘s Gorr The God Butcher.

The Moon Knight series was full of suspense and thrilling. This series also shows some action scenes. We also get to see Scarlet Scarab a new superheroine as the first superheroine of Egypt. But the main thing that we get to introduce in the Moon Knight series is the Egyptian Gods before that we only know that there are Norse Gods we get to see in the Thor franchise. In Thor: Love and Thunder we also get to see Greek Gods as Zeus will be played by Russell Crowe. The villain of Thor: Love and Thunder will be Gorr The God Butcher and he gets a reference in the Moon Knight series as the scene was deleted and it was confirmed by James Slater who is the head writer and executive producer of Moon Knight.

What did James Slater say about Gorr The God Butcher in Moon Knight series?

In an interview, James Slater, who is the head writer and executive producer of the Moon Knight series of Disney+ has told that at various points in time the series has an existence of Gorr The God Butcher either before or after the events of Thor Love and Thunder. The words in that interview are noted below.

“Both a lot and a little. But the reality is that we had no idea when we started working on the show, we didn’t know when we were debuting. We always sort of assumed it would be later down the road, and we would sort of be coming out in fall of 2022, and we thought we would probably be following Thor. But at that time, Thor didn’t necessarily have a concrete release date either, everything was sort of up in the air, and it’s like we might be ahead of Thor, or we might be finishing up. So there were different versions of the script where the Gods would sort of talk about, This thing with Gorr the God Butcher just happened, and now we’ve got this new problem. And then there were other versions of the script where they sort of talked about, We’re hearing rumors Gods are dying, this is not the right time to get involved. Like we tried to have our cake and eat it too.”

Michael Waldron words in that interview.

Moon Knight series was one of the finest series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this series, we get to see Egyptian Gods like Taweret, Khonshu, Ammit, etc. But many ushapti (the dolls where the Egyptian Gods were kept) were broken, fans were speculating that these were broken by Gorr The God Butcher or there will some reference of Gorr The God Butcher but there was no reference.
