Beta Ray Bill Cut From Thor: Ragnarok

Marvel Comics fans may have recognized the Beta Ray Bill Easter Egg in Thor: Ragnarok.

Beta Ray Bill was featured as one of the Gladiator champions on the Grandmaster's Tower.

Now it's learned  Beta Ray Bill was actually at one time a part of the movie, but Marvel decided to cut him.

"There was a Beta Ray Bill, but it was so quick that you would have the same complaints that you have now. He was in it a little bit more and it just didn’t do justice," Kevin Feige told Crave Online.

The good news is that Kevin Feige at least hints of the possibility of Beta Ray Bill down the road in the MCU.

"And the feeling is, if you can’t do it justice, do it later," Feige teased.

Beta Ray Bill is a Korbinite who actually proved worthy enough to wield Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, so Odin gave Beta Ray Bill the powers of Thor and his own hammer, Stormbreaker.

Beta Ray Bill is a huge fan-favorite character, so hopefully he appears in the MCU soon enough.
