Christian Bale worried about having to wear a ‘thong’ in Thor: love and thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder It will be the fourth installment of Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one of the most exciting elements is the inclusion of Academy Award-winning actor Christian Bale as the film’s antagonist, Gorr the God Butcher. Bale recently opened up about the role and the shock he experienced after discovering the character’s comic book appearance.

Thor: love and thunder will focus on the main character as he embarks on a tranquil journey to find peace, which is quickly derailed by the arrival of galactic antagonist Gorr the God Butcher. Driven by the desire to eliminate all gods, Thor must seek the help of old and familiar faces to combat the new threat before all that is precious is lost. Gorr’s power comes from the Necrosword, which grants the wielder superhuman abilities and other gifts, making the villain a very dangerous threat.

Casting Bale to play the new villain was an incredible move on Marvel Studios’ part due to the actor’s notoriety and family appeal. Bale was confirmed for the transforming role in December 2020, but experienced some hesitation after seeing the comic book appearance of Gorr the God Butcher. “You say, ‘I know what he does.’ It’s right there in the name, isn’t it? Bale stated while speaking to GamesRadar. “But I made the mistake of Googling him and oh no! In the comics, he runs around in a thong all the time. And I thought, ‘They don’t have the right man for that!'”

Bale later revealed that director Taika Waititi dismissed the idea that the actor would have to wear something of that nature to play the part, but did not eliminate the fact that Waititi could add it later without Bale’s knowledge. “I always thought what I could do with this in front of a blue screen: I could throw whatever I wanted later,” Bale said. However, much to the actor’s relief, the outfit worn by his villainous character is entirely different from the comic book depiction, allowing Bale to appropriate the character in a unique way.

Waititi noted that Bale’s incredible take on Gorr the God Butcher has outclassed any MCU foe audiences have ever encountered. Bale’s inclusion adds depth to the character, but it will be interesting to see what he does to set the character apart from notable villains like Loki and Thanos. Additionally, Waititi noted that the character is one of the most sympathetic villains audiences have ever seen and even went so far as to call Bale’s Gorr the best villain Marvel has ever had. The first images of Bale in the upcoming film have been impressive, but only time will tell if his character can live up to such high expectations.


Alongside Bale and Hemsworth, the upcoming Marvel Studios movie will star Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Russell Crowe along with the return of the guardian of the galaxy to the big screen. Early reactions to the film should start pouring in as soon as the red carpet premiere draws near, but the desire to experience the film for many may hinge on the reception of the film’s new villain. However, Bale should add something exciting to the MCU, and audiences should be lucky that wardrobe concerns didn’t push the actor elsewhere.

Thor: love and thunder It will hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
