Christian Bale is most known for his role as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy despite having a lengthy and interesting Hollywood career. The Academy Award-winning actor finally returned to the world of comic book movies this year when he took on the role of Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder. Bale recently said that the Thor movie was monotonous and he had no idea what to do.
Bale’s Gorr, a disillusioned believer set on killing all the gods after experiencing personal tragedy, thwarts his retirement plans. He previously dismissed the idea of reprising his role as Batman when asked if he had any reservations about playing another comic book character.
Bale recently told GQ that the filming was monotonous when he was asked about green-screen acting.
That’s the first time I’ve done that. I mean, the definition of it is monotony. You’ve got good people. You’ve got other actors who are far more experienced at it than me. Can you differentiate one day from the next?
No. Absolutely not. You have no idea what to do. I couldn’t even differentiate one stage from the next. They kept saying, ‘You’re on Stage Three.’ Well, it’s like, ‘Which one is that?’ ‘The blue one.’ They’re like, ‘Yeah. But you’re on Stage Seven.’ ‘Which one is that?’ ‘The blue one.’ I was like, ‘Uh, where?’
Fans’ reactions to Gorr’s much anticipated live-action debut in Thor: Love and Thunder were divided as a result of the character’s new appearance. Gorr did not have the flowing tendrils or a noseless face from the comics, despite the fact that the character portrayed by Bale was still a member of a nearly extinct alien culture.
Additionally, he did not have on the iconic black hood from the comics. The recent alterations were made in order to prevent Bale from being lost in the CGI or makeup, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Stay tuned to Thirsty for the latest news and updates.
