Christian Bale’s Shaved Head For Gorr in Thor 4
Christian Bale was seen with a bald head for Thor: Love and Thunder filming, teasing for his role as main rival Gorr the God Butcher. The fourth Thor film is intense filming in Australia and Bale is just one of the variety of stars in the MCU film. Returning for the God of Thunder’s fourth solo outing is Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster aka Mighty Thor, and nearly the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Bale’s character, though, will be in direct opposition to the heroes this time.
The Dark Knight star will make his debut as Gorr the God Butcher in the film, but just what’s detailed for his character remains unclear. Set photos indicate that Thor 4 may be telling Gorr the God Butcher’s origin story, but how that fits into the main plot of the cosmic adventure remains hidden in mystery. One thing seems clear, though: as usual, Bale is totally diving into the role if these recent photos are any indication.
Bale is known for committing to his roles, both in their physical demands and their traits. It looks like Gorr the God Butcher will be no different. Bale’s shaved head could suggest that his character will have heavy prosthetics and makeup or the actor could be making room for some CGI magic to be applied in post-production. Either way, it looks like Gorr’s depiction in Thor 4 will line up closely with his comic book equivalent.
Even with all of the leaks from Thor: Love and Thunder’s set, much of the film’s plot is still undetermined. How writer-director Taika Waititi plans to loop all of the different plots together, including the appearance of the Guardians, Jane Foster’s turn as Mighty Thor, and the God of Thunder’s growth. Last month photos of a buff looking Natalie Portman were leaked from the set.
Thor: Love and Thunder have also flown under the radar of many fans with a focus on the TV shows such as WandaVision or Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+. However, with two films ready to kick off phase 4 Spiderman Far From Home and Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness debuting in the next 12 months, we are now on the countdown to our new Thor!
