Christian Bale’s Role in The Upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder
Bale is set to play the role of Gorr The God Butcher in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder alongside Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and many others. Described as a ‘galactic killer’ by Marvel Studios, he is set to kill gods, like that of his comic character.
According to Bale, “There’s a great pleasure in playing a villain,” adding, “It’s a lot easier to play a villain than it is to play a hero. Everyone is fascinated with bad guys, immediately.”
This movie will be set post-2019’s Avengers: Endgame events where Hemsworth’s Thor will be seeking inner peace and will join Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie to stop the villain Bale’s Gorr. This movie is set to release in theatres on July 8.
