As soon as Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness comes out next, it’s easy to forget that there’s another big Marvel Studios movie coming up right after it. Thor: Love & Thunder comes out next. After all, there hasn’t even been a trailer yet, so most people might not even know it exists yet. That’s not all. It also brings Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster and Oscar winner Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher to the table, as well as a new Thor, played by Bale.
In the comics, Gorr is an alien who hates Gods and thinks they’re pointless. He also thinks they don’t listen to people who pray to them or care about them. Weaponized by the Venom symbiote’s own weapon, the God Butcher lives up to his name. He kills people off of his hit list.
For the first time, Christian Bale will play Gorr in a movie. For now, all fans have seen are pictures of Bale from afar on set. Many people thought the look was incomplete, with CGI to be added in later. According to new images of the upcoming Marvel Legends wave for the project, that isn’t the case, at least according to what the images show.
A look at Christian Bale’s Gorr
With help from Murphy’s Multiverse, fans can now see the first official picture of Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher from the new Thor: Love and Thunder movie.
Ravager Thor, King Valkyrie, and Star-Lord are some of the Marvel Legends toys that come in this bundle. Box 1: Gorr is shown in one of seven boxes.
The MCU’s version of the bad guy is very different from the one in the comics. In the beginning, they look like each other. He has sunken eyes and a black sword, but the similarities don’t stop there.
A picture from Instagram account stark collections shows off the figure’s resemblance to Christian Bale.
On the side of the packaging, there is a picture of what Bale’s villain will look like when he terrorizes Thor on the big screen.
Gorr’s Unknown Look
With just a few design choices, many fans may be wondering why they didn’t think of them first. If you look at the comics, you’ll see that the head tentacles aren’t there, which is a big difference. He even has robes on. Why not make them black? In some ways, it looks like he’s been brought to life by marble.
If you want to see these pictures, you’ll have to keep in mind that they aren’t the best quality and are of a Marvel Legends figure. The final product on the screen could look very different, especially when it is moving.
The all-white look is, of course, a choice. Hopefully, even though some fans might be a little skeptical about the design, Christian Bale does a good job of convincing people that Gorr will be a villain worth remembering.
He has a very weird and cult-like look to him. They are who they are, even if this isn’t what the source material says they should be. It’s a good thing that his sword, All-Black the Necrosword, will be just as powerful and important as it was when it first came out. One might dream that it will even annoy Knull, the God of the Symbiotes, by making him laugh.
