New ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ toy art reveals the design for Christian Bale’s villain.
We are less than three months away from the highly-anticipated release of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, Thor: Love and Thunder. While fans have yet to see a trailer for the fourth solo film for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, we’ve gotten only a few small glimpses from set photos as well as some promo art. Now, we finally got a look at the design for the film’s primary antagonist: Gorr the God Butcher, portrayed by Academy Award-winner Christian Bale.
New promotional artwork from the Marvel Legends toy line for Thor: Love and Thunder has surfaced the web. We get a good look at how Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher will look like in his action figure packaging. You can check it out down below:
The upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder will mark Christian Bale’s return to superhero movies for the first time in 10 years. The last time he was involved with the genre was when his tenure as Batman concluded in 2012 with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, which was the final chapter in The Dark Knight Trilogy. Hopefully, an inevitable trailer will finally give fans a glimpse at how this villain is involved with the action and humor through the direction of Academy Award-winner Taika Waititi.
Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, and Jeff Goldblum. Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, and Russell Crowe are also on board.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film, as well as Christian Bale’s role as Gorr the God Butcher, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
