dOn the latest episode of the John Campea Show, film expert John Campea and other presenters talked about Thor: Love and Thunder. More specifically, on Christian Bale’s introduction to the… Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The actor who brought Batman to life in The Dark Knight TrilogYou play Gorr the Butcher of Gods here. At the moment he is still hidden in the images after the first trailer. There have been leaks, but nothing real so far.
One of the talk show hosts, Robert Meyer Burnett, confirmed that both he and John Campea have seen footage of Christian Bale’s villain in Thor: Love and Thunder.
From what they have described, he is one of the strangest and most terrifying villains in Marvel Studios history. Gorr the Butcher of Gods looks like something out of a nightmare.
Erin Cummings, another member of the program, agreed. Apparently he’s terrifying, terrifying. Here’s the conversation’s content creators had:
Robert Meyer Burnett: “You and I have seen pictures of Gorr the Butcher of Gods.”
John Campea: “Oh yes, we have pictures of Gorr! We have them and we haven’t shared them with people because I got into trouble for that. Oh my God! If you see Christian Bale in Thor: Love and Thunder… What we saw was really bizarre. It’s something out of a nightmare.”
Erin Cummings: “Yeah, yeah, I saw the picture. Since then I have had nightmares every night. It’s absolutely terrifying.”
What can we expect from Gorr the Butcher of Gods?
In the Marvel comics, Gorr the butcher of the gods is certainly a terrifying villain. However, this latest rumor indicates that Christian Bale’s portrayal will likely outshine his comic book counterpart.
Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi claimed a few weeks ago that “we probably have the best villain in Marvel history.” If we add to that John Campea’s statements and the fact that we have such a great actor… The expectations are sky high!
When will it premiere?
Thor: Love and Thunder will be released in the United States on July 8, and the cast will be led by Chris Hemsworth as Thor and will also include Natalie Portman as The Mighty Thor, Taika Waititi as Korg, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Christian Bale as the aforementioned Gorr, and cameos from Guardians of the Galaxy.
