He said, “It’s a great, really fun, weird little group of heroes, a new team for Thor with Korg, Valkyrie, and The Mighty Thor,” Waititi continued, “And, in my humble opinion, we have probably the best villain that Marvel’s ever had in Christian Bale.” This is quite a prediction! Certainly, Christian Bale is one of the best actors on the planet right now, and Gorr the God Butcher is a fascinating villain with an intriguing backstory. Would Bale’s Gorr be the best Marvel villain ever? We’ll have to wait for that, but what is certain is that Bale playing Gorr could be one of the most memorable performances of the actor.
