Russo Brothers Have Discussed Bringing Beta Ray Bill to the MCU

During a Q&A for a special screening of Avengers: Infinity War, the Russo brothers confirmed they've thought about bringing Beta Ray Bill into the Marvel Cinematic Universe; they just haven't found the right moment yet.

A fan-favorite character from the comics, Beta Ray Bill is a horse-like Korbinite who is also one of the few characters worthy to wield Thor's hammer. First appearing in 1983's The Mighty Thor #337, Beta Ray Bill was created by Walt Simonson and has starred in animations like The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the Planet Hulk movie. That being said, he still hasn't made his MCU debut.

The Russo Brothers' thoughts come after Beta Ray Bill was previously cut from Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok.  Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained that Beta Ray Bill's cameo was removed because there simply wasn't enough of him in the movie. Elsewhere, Ti Asha Ra — another famous Korbinite and love interest of Beta Ray Bill — was cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, which could've neatly set up the arrival of Beta Ray Bill.

Beta Ray Bill is also known for his weapon of choice: Stormbreaker, which is currently being used by Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder. Thor's future with the MCU is still shrouded in mystery, but -- with Tessa Thompson talking about a Valkyrie standalone and Feige planning another 20+ movie after Avengers 4 -- Beta Ray Bill might be closer than we think.

With Waititi wanting to make a Thor: Ragnarok sequel and the cosmic side of the MCU expanding in movies like The Eternals and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (when it eventually arrives), fans are expecting to see more strange creatures from the Nine Realms. Add this to the news of Tom Hiddleston's Loki TV series and there's a whole host of ways Beta Ray Bill could be introduced to the MCU.
