Gorr has arrived! The Daily Mail has given us our very first look at Christian Bale suited up on set as the god killing villain Gorr The God Butcher. The photos were taken in Malibu, California this week where the Oscar winning actor was doing additional filming for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Drenched in gray paint from from head to toe, Bale appears to be wearing some kind of prosthetic on his head. In one of the photos you can also see him donning his famous black cape. One thing that seems to be missing in these particular shots is the Necrosword. In the comics, this is Gorr’s primarily weapon that he uses to kill countless gods.
Obviously this is not the final look as I imagine CGI will be added in. It is good however to see that Marvel Studios is giving the Thor villain a comic book accurate look.
Thor: Love and Thunder will once again be written and directed by Taika Waititi. Along with Bale, it will star Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, and Russell Crowe as Zeus.
The film hits theaters on May 6, 2022.
