Gorr the God Butcher is here. Additional photography has apparently restarted on Thor: Love and Thunder, and set-tracking paparazzi have managed to capture our first look at Christian Bale’s god-killing villain. Surprising most of us, Bale can be seen in a series of pictures wearing prosthetics, painted Gorr gray from head to toe. In one of the snapshots, Bale can even been seen in the character’s iconic black robe — a far cry from the entirely-CG character most expected.
The pictures first appeared on a Daily Mail post, which suggests Love and Thunder is shooting pickup shots in Malibu, California. Check out Bale’s Gorr look below.

The movie is being directed by Taika Waititi, who says the movie is the craziest film he’s ever done.
“Well, just between [me and] you and the readers, I’ve done some crazy sh*t in my life. I’ve lived, like, ten lifetimes. But it’s the craziest film I’ve ever done,” Waititi shared. “If you wrote down all the elements of this film, it shouldn’t make sense,” he added, “It’s almost like it shouldn’t be made. If you walked into a room and said, ‘I want this and this and this.’ Who’s in it? These people. What are you going to call it? Love And Thunder. I mean, you’d never work again. Maybe I won’t after this.”
“It’s very different from Ragnarok,” Waititi continued. “It’s crazier. I’ll tell you what’s different. There’ll be far more emotion in this film. And a lot more love. And a lot more thunder. And a lot more Thor, if you’ve seen the photos.”
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set for release on May 6, 2022.
