THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Set Photos Offer First Look at Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher

Some new photos from the set of Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder have surfaced online and they offer us a first look at Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. The film has already wrapped production in Australia, but these images come from the reshoots that are currently taking place in Malibu, CA.

As you can see, Bale is sporting full-on makeup and costume for the character. Gorr was introduced to Marvel Comics back in God of Thunder #2 which was released in January 2013. In the comics, Gorr nearly kills Thor after slaying many gods from various pantheons.

This is going to be a very interesting character to see brought to life on the big screen and how he ends up being utilized in the story. I’m also excited to see Bale’s take on the character.

Chris Hemsworth will be back as the God of Thunder, Natalie Portman is reprising the role of Jane Foster, who will also become Thor, Tessa Thompson is returning as Valkyrie and ruler of Asgard, and Chris Pratt will return as Star-Lord. It also stars Russell Crowe, along with other members of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

One of the storylines for the film features Jane Foster taking on the mantle of Thor. That story arc is based on Jason Aaron’s comic book run on The Mighty Thor, the story of which follows a cancer-stricken Jane Foster as she takes up the mantle and powers of Thor.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to arrive in theaters on May 6, 2022.
