Love and Thunder villain would look “terrifying” in images

Marvel Studios released the first teaser trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder and it was full of surprises. The teaser trailer revealed some key things about the sequel, including what Thor has been up to in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as our first look at Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor. The one thing that wasn’t revealed during the teaser was what Christian Bale’s villain Gorr the God Butcher might look like in the film. There’s toys and some promotional art that gave us our first look at the character, but we’ve yet to see the villain in love action. If we are to believe a new report, Bale will look terrifying as the character.

On a recent episode of The John Campea Show, industry insiders John Campea, Roger Meyer Burnett and Erin Cummings revealed they’ve each seen footage of Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. Campea calls the images of Gorr a “thing straight out of nightmares” and “straight up freaky”, while Cummings says “it’s absolutely terrifying”. Their descriptions will get any Marvel fan excited and I’m sure people will be excited to see the next movie.

Gorr the God-Butcher was created by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic in their Thor: God of Thunder series for Marvel Comics in 2012. That series marked the beginning of Aaron’s long run of writing Thor comics. Taika Waititi used their story for Thor: Love and Thunders story. Recently, fans were concerned about the appearance of the villains in the film, prompting Aaron to speak out in a commentary on his substack newsletter.

“We haven’t even gotten the first official look at the movie version of Gorr the God Butcher yet,” Aaron said. “I’ve seen some concerns online about Gorr’s design, based on a glimpse of the character’s action figure. As the guy who created it with Esad, I’ll just say it’s not Gorr’s nose (or lack thereof) was ) who made him the tragic and deeply deranged God Butcher that he was. Trust Christian Bale’s face. I must remind you it’s a damn talented face.”

Marvel Studios describes: Thor: Love and Thunder as follows: “The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey he has never experienced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), To confront the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably sage wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.Together they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to unravel the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

The film is directed by Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star Lord Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. In addition to directing, Waititi will also reprise his role as Korg. Thor: Love and Thunder opens in theaters on July 8, 2022!
