Christian Bale Wants to Redeem His Gorr the God Butcher in Atrocious Thor 4, Expresses Desire to Return to the MCU in Future


While Thor: Love and Thunder received a lot of hate, both for its comedic approach and its destruction of the characters’ personalities, one aspect that gained a lot of support from the fans was that of Christian Bale’s acting as Gorr the God Butcher. The movie got a tonne of backlash but the unity shown by the audience with regard to Bale’s interpretation of Gorr made them want more of the character. By the looks of it, The Dark Knight actor might also agree.

He has conveyed the possibility that he would love to revisit the character and do him justice, something which Taika Waititi supposedly ruined in the movie. Gorr had barely been explored or shown at all. The movie focused more on getting laughs as compared to getting an actual story.

Christian Bale Wants To Return To The MCU

Christian Bale recently talked about how he wouldn’t mind coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Gorr or even some other character. He reiterated that he would always be open to playing any role in the MCU as long as the director and script were right, but most importantly if his kids gave the green light for him to take up the role.

“They said no no, you’re not saying saying no to that you’re saying yes to that. And I went-” The actor then proceeded to salute as a way of obeying what his children had demanded.

His role was the most appreciated part of the movie and no doubt, it left the fans yearning for more of what Gorr and his antagonistic intentions could bring to the franchise. His kids signed off for him to take up the role and it would be up to them once again whether or not Bale would return to the MCU. His interpretation of the character was rather different than the comics but just as interesting. What his acting showed was filled with a need to avenge his daughter and as the name suggests, kill every god in all of existence. It showed pain and it showed hunger, something the audience loves to see in villains.

Christian Bale Talked About A Possibility Of Return As Batman

While on the topic of returning to the world of superheroes, Bale has played Batman in Christian Bale’s Dark Knight Trilogy. The love he received for his role was beyond amazing and fans kept asking for more of Christian Bale as Batman.

“No, no, no. Nobody, nobody reaches out to me or they keep me like a mushroom, keep me in the dark and feed me sh-t. For me, that would be a matter of Chris Nolan, if he ever decided to do it again and if he chose to come my way again, then yeah, I would consider it because that was always our pact between each other is we would just stick to it. We said we would only ever make three. And then I said to myself, and I’d only ever make it with Chris.”

Bale reverted to the fact that the only way he’d be returning as the character would be only if the actor could team up with Christopher Nolan. Otherwise, the DC Universe would not be seeing the American Psycho actor wear the cowl again.
