Last March, the presence of actor Christian Bale in the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder was formalized. The opportunity for us to come back closer to Gorr, the hunter of the gods, the new character he will finally play on screen. But now the first photos of filming with Christian Bale appeared on the Internet, revealing a transformed bale.
Zero ball for Christian Bale
For some time now, the filming of Thor: Love and Thunder has continued in Australia. Several photos have already been posted which in particular will allow us to find out how Jane Foster will restore Mjolnir. But lately neither Chris Hemsworth nor Natalie Portman have astonished internet users, but Christian Bale. The British actor was seen on the set of the sequel to Thor’s adventures with his head completely shaved.

Unsurprisingly, Christian Bale spotted the ball down to zero on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder. And for good reason, the character he embodies there, Gorr, the hunter of the gods, is also a fan of the shaved head. A physical transformation that is undoubtedly aimed at facilitating the work of makeup artists, costume designers, but also post-production. A feature film that CGI won’t be missing, especially to best transcribe the design of this Voldemort from another universe.
It remains to be seen what the end result will be. But until then we have to be patient. And for good reason, Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on May 6, 2022. A feature film that marks the first appearance on the MCU of Gorr, the Slayer of Gods, an alien whose hatred of celestial and hypothetical beings will be born after the death of his mother, wife and children. Excluded from his tribe because of his lack of faith, he will eventually learn that the gods exist. Gorr then decides to take revenge by slaughtering them one by one.
Armed with the necrosword, a divine blade salvaged from the corpse of a god, Gorr will roam the universe in search of his victims. It’s hard to know exactly how Jane Foster and Thor will come into contact with this voracious bloodthirsty alien. A black hole? A journey through time? An alien courier on a bike dropping Gorr down in Times Square? Response in 2022 in case Thor 4 is not delayed. But with the never-ending coronavirus epidemic, nothing is less certain.
