Christian Bale was one of the big surprises of Thor: Love and Thunder, after Batman, the actor let slip that the world of superheroes was over, but it seems that didn’t apply to supervillains, and he surprised us all with his cast as Gorr, God Butcher.
Thanks to a fan account on Twitter, we discovered Christian Bale’s first glimpse as Gorr on the shooting location.
The first look at Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder!
Bale’s physical condition is surprising, although if you follow the actor’s filmography, such overwhelming physical changes won’t seem new to you. In his early days, Gorr is a poor being who inhabits an arid planet, where natural disasters and shortages of food and water are commonplace.
In the comics, Gorr watches helplessly as his people die. The gods do nothing no matter how many prayers he and his family make to the heavens until he finds the Necrosword (the Knull symbiote god’s ultimate weapon) and begin to take justice into his own hands.
