First pictures of Christian Bale as Gorr, the butcher of the gods have reached the public and they show a significantly different Hollywood star.
It’s still hard to believe Christian Bale, the dedicated character actor and former Batman, actually plays the villain in a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film. But “Thor 4: Love and Thunder” makes this possible. Bale embodies in it Gorr, the butcher of godswho of course wants to live up to his name, which brings him into conflict with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman).
Given Gorr’s alien look in the Marvel Comics, fans wondered whether Bale would be lending his voice to a computer-generated character or wearing plenty of prostheses and makeup. Obviously the latter is the case, even if you can still see a lot of Christian Bale on the first “Thor 4” set pictures.
Here you can see the set pictures with Christian Bale at the Daily Mail.
Just like Comic-Gorr, Bale was made up completely white. In addition, he wears a white full-body veil on the beach in Malibu, where the scenes were filmed, which is the first difference to the original. Because even if Gorr’s skin is white, he usually wears a black cloak as a contrast. In addition, Bale’s face still looks human, which is definitely not the case with Gorr. It remains to be seen whether he will be given a Voldemort-like nose and predator teeth with special effects.

Do we already know Gorr’s first victim in “Thor 4”?
Even if its appearance could be different, we can assume that “Thor 4: Love and Thunder” follows Gorr’s story from the comics. In it, the von Gorr family died of adverse conditions on a barren planet. Despite their circumstances, the population always worshiped the gods, but Gorr hated them because the gods did not help his family, even though they are supposedly omnipotent. After Gorr learned that gods really exist, he swore to kill them. By chance he came into possession of a powerful sword that gave him the power to do so.

We may even already know Gorr’s first victim in “Thor 4: Love and Thunder”: Zeus. Russell Crowe has already announced that he will star in the role of the Greek deity in the MCU film. In order to establish Gorr as a threat, it is of course a good idea to have him kill a god before he meets the two Thors, and with our current information Zeus is the most suitable target.
