Eyyy there we go. Bill’s ship. His ship named Scuttlebutt. This is my favorite fact.
So I’ve had this question sitting around here because I honestly don’t know much about Beta Ray Bill but I don’t want to neglect it further, so I perused the resources I have.
From what I gather he was an accidentally enemy of Thor till they had a massive battle and he suddenly discover he could wield Mjolnir? And Galactus ate his planet. Also he looks like a horse/kind of bad ass.
I feel like as Marvel moves more and more into the Galaxy (we saw more in Thor 2 and then upcoming Guardians…) the path will certainly be paved for more aesthetically strange characters like him to be acceptable but at the same time—again garnered from my Marvel Encyclopedia/internet, please forgive my comic ignorance—-it seems like his story involves A LOT of other characters we haven’t seen yet (Surtur, aforementioned Galactus) and I’d be worried it might overwhelm a sequel. That and the circumstances of him getting the hammer involve the Donald Blake plotline which the movie’s have foregone all together.
I remember early early Thor 2 rumors involved the Enchantress and I think I was bummed that those never came to fruition.
So anyone better Beta-Ray-Bill-versed care to comment??
(ETA seriously, he’s kind of terrifying to look at)
