Gorr’s appearance in the movie was altered, according to Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi, to prevent parallels to Voldemort.
Jason Aaron designed Gorr the God Butcher for his 2013 Thor run, and he is currently the most recent antagonist to appear in the MCU. Fans quickly noticed that Gorr’s appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder didn’t precisely like his appearance in the comics when the first images of Gorr from the Thor sequel began to circulate as a result of promotional artwork.
Christian Bale, who plays Gorr, recently made light of the fact that he was relieved his character no longer required him to run around in a G-string. While Marvel Studios is known for sticking fairly faithful to the books, Gorr in Thor: Love and Thunder is another example of how they won’t hesitate to change a character’s appearance if it’s essential. According to Thor director Taika Waititi, Gorr’s look was changed for the film since, regrettably, his face in the comics does somewhat resemble Voldemort.
Gorr has received a lot of attention in the run-up to the release of Thor: Love and Thunder thanks to Taika Waititi. Gorr might challenge Thanos as the greatest MCU antagonist to date, overtaking him in terms of power. The director of Thor claims that during test screenings for Thor: Love and Thunder, Gorr performed better than every previous antagonist. The quality of the movie also doesn’t appear to have been affected by the villain’s new look, as several early reviews have praised Christian Bale‘s Gorr.
Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Tessa Thompson, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Russell Crowe are among the cast members of the Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum-produced Thor: Love and Thunder.
On July 8, 2022, Thor: Love and Thunder opens in cinemas.
