How Different is Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder From The Comics?

The full trailer of Thor: Love and Thunder is finally out, a few weeks after we saw the teaser trailer. The new trailer takes the viewers on a ride across the cosmos, revealing more characters who would be in the film. It also gave us the first look at Gorr the God Butcher. Christian Bale is playing the baddie from the Thor comic books. He appeared quite a few times in the trailer and also used his line from the comics, “All gods must die.”

Though, fans already had an idea of what the villain is going to look like with action figures. But the first official look at Gorr made the fans agree with the maker Taika Waititi. As he is every bit as intimidating as promised. Waititi said, “It’s a great, really fun, weird little group of heroes, a new team for Thor with Korg, Valkyrie, and The Mighty Thor. And, in my humble opinion, we have probably the best villain that Marvel’s ever had in Christian Bale.”

The planet where the villain is from has harsh conditions, so they pray for survival. But when his family dies, he turns against the Gods. He found the All-Black-Necrosword when he witnessed a fight between two Gods. Bale has an off-white costume and makeup. And it is as accurate as it can get without losing the realistic feel MCU works on. But the black details are missing, also Bale still has his nose in the trailer. When Gorr in the comics has a nose like Voldemort from the Harry Potter franchise.

Fans react to the look of the God Butcher

Fans have shared their opinion on Christian Bale’s Gorr, they are somewhat mixed. While many appreciate it, some believe MCU could’ve done better. Some of the tweets included their views on the look. Many comic book fans wanted to see the authentic version come to live-action. While others are happy with the realistic touch given to Gorr. Check out some of the Tweets.
