More behind the scenes photos have hit the web from the set of “Thor: Love and Thunder.” This time it’s Christian Bale in the lens as his villainous character Gorr the God Butcher.
Production has moved to Malibu and even though the filming officially wrapped in June, these new photos are presumably for reshoots.
The amount of information that can be gleamed from these shots is wild. Bale is wearing a full-body costume that is being filmed practically instead of one of those green body suits. Like in the comics, Gorr is a villainous creature of white flesh. Bale is similarly sporting a dark robe, although that could be a coincidence. The robe seems to be being used to obscure the actor from looky-loos as opposed to being part of his on-camera costume.
The source material for Gorr presents him as being from a planet with no name, perpetually existing on the brink of starvation. After his prayers to the gods begging for help were never answered, Gorr turned resentful, vowing to kill the gods in revenge.
In addition to Bale as Gorr and Hemsworth as Thor, “Thor: Love and Thunder” stars Karen Gillan, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, Melissa McCarthy, Sam Neill, Sean Gunn, and Jaimie Alexander.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” is set for theatrical release on May 6, 2022.
