Christian Bale is rocking a new look for his role as Gorr the God Butcher in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
With Thor: Love and Thunder now filming in Australia, Christian Bale has been spotted with a freshly shaved head for his role as the main villain of the Marvel Studios project. Bale’s Thor: Love and Thunder casting was officially confirmed this past December, with Marvel’s Kevin Feige revealing that he’s playing Gorr the God Butcher, a villainous character who made his debut in the pages of 2013’s Thor: God of Thunder #2.
A batch of photos from the Daily Mail show Christian Bale at Sydney’s Palm Beach, taking a break from filming Thor: Love and Thunder. In the photos, Bale can be seen with a leaner look and a shaved head, two of the signature aspects of Gorr’s comic book design. You can check out the photos below.
