A new Thor: Love and Thunder leak offers Marvel Cinematic Universe fans their first real look at Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher.
A number of Marvel Legends Build-a-Figure action figure boxes for Thor: Love and Thunder recently surfaced on Facebook and were subsequently shared to the Thor: Love and Thunder News Twitter account. The boxes feature promo artwork for a number of characters from the film, including Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Ravager Thor (Hemsworth), Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman), King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Groot (Vin Diesel) and, of course, Gorr (Bale). The figures themselves recently leaked online, courtesy of Murphy’s Multiverse.
While Gorr was recently depicted in an official Love and Thunder LEGO set, the artwork on the character’s Marvel Legends box is likely far more representative of how he will actually appear in the upcoming Marvel Studios film.
Created by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribić, Gorr the God Butcher first appeared in 2012’s Thor: God of Thunder #2. A mortal alien born on a planet with no name, Gorr obtained powerful suberhuman abilities after bonding with All-Black the Necrosword, a weapon created by Knull, God of the Symbiotes.
It was first reported in January 2020 that Bale, known for his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in director Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, was in talks to join the MCU in Love and Thunder. Towards the end of that year, it came to light that Bale would indeed be portraying Gorr the God Butcher.
In addition to Hemsworth as Thor, Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Thompson as Valkyrie, Bale as Gorr, Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord and Diesel as Groot, Love: and Thunder stars Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Sean Gunn as Kraglin Obfonteri, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster and director Taika Waititi as Korg.
See Christian Bale in action as Gorr the God Butcher when Thor: Love and Thunder releases in theaters on July 8.
