We’ve been super excited ever since we saw the pictures from the sets of Thor: Love and Thunder. In addition to a star-studded cast, the movie is also introducing new faces to the MCU. One of the most anticipated villains- Gorr The God Butcher, played by Christian Bale is finally coming together.
Bale appears to have gone bald to step into the shoes of Gorr The God Butcher. More notable he even seems pretty slimmed down. This has by far been his first appearance from the film’s set. Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder has become one of the most anticipated MCU projects of Phase 4. With an all-over white appearance, Bale is set to give us some otherworldly experience. A lot of work is definitely required before we finally get to see the look, but this is as creepy as it can get (which’s exactly what anticipated).
Gorr the God Butcher is an interesting supervillain from Marvel Comics. In the 2022 film, he’ll be seen playing Thor’s nemesis. According to the comics, he grew up on an unnamed and barren planet. Soon after his family’s death due to starvation and an earthquake, Gorr lost his belief in gods and promised to kill them all. He is absolutely a newbie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Bale, who is no stranger to comic-book films, has played the protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Going by the records, there’s no way he could be a disappointment
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to star Chris Hemsworth, returning as God of Thunder, with Tessa Thompson as the new queen of Asgard, Valkryie, Natalie Portman is set to make a comeback as Jane Foster. Christian Bale joins the MCU as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher and Russell Crowe is playing Zeus. Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Sean Gunn have already completed their filming. Korg and Miek are also set to return for the franchise.
Thor: Love and Thunder, which is currently in production in Australia, is slated for an 11 February 2022 release.
