Chris Hemsworth on Christian Bale’s Gorr in Thor Love and Thunder: ‘You can’t take eyes off him’
In Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth returns as the titular superhero, a role that he previously played in three solo and four Avengers films. Christian Bale features in the film as Gorr the God Butcher.
Marvel stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are in absolute awe of Oscar winner Christian Bale’s terrifying turn as Gorr the God Butcher in the latest MCU film Thor: Love and Thunder.
In the movie, Hemsworth returns as the titular superhero, a role that he previously played in three solo and four Avengers films.
Bale, who earlier played Batman in Christopher Nolan’s critically-acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy, features in the film as Gorr the God Butcher, a galactic killer who seeks the extinction of the gods.
Hemsworth said he liked how Bale brought different layers to the character with his performance.
“There’s so much drama and insanity around Gorr, but Christian Bale managed to pull the focus right into each moment. You can’t take your eyes off him. The character is fascinating because like all good villains, Gorr has a point.
“He may not be going about it the right way, but there’s empathy in the script and Christian brought so many more layers and so much more depth to Gorr,” the Australian star said in a statement.

Portman, who is returning as Jane Foster from 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, confessed that she was “scared” by Bale’s presence as Gorr on the film’s sets.
“All of us were actually a little scared in Gorr’s presence,” said the actor, who in the movie will be taking on the mantle of The Mighty Thor, the female incarnation of the superhero.
