Thor 4: Gorr’s Terrifying Alternative Look Revealed

Many were disappointed with Christian Bale’s look as Gorr in Thor: Love and Thunder (Thor 4). But the villain’s look could have been very different, as revealed in concept art.

Artist Ken Barthelmey shared some concept illustrations he’s done about the character. These were made before the casting of Christian Bale.

The result is quite scary and really makes the villain look like an alien, unlike what we saw in the movie.

“The initial design of Gorr the Butcher of the Gods, which I did for Thor: Love and Thunder at Odd Studio, before Christian Bale was cast. I loved the way Bale portrayed the character,” the artist captioned his art on Instagram.

More about Thor 4

Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds the God of Thunder on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – the search for inner peace. But Thor’s reform is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods, who seeks the extinction of the gods.

To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields her magic hammer, Mjolnir, and calls herself the Mighty Thor.

Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.

Taika Waititi, who directed Thor: Ragnarok, returns to direct Thor: Love and Thunder. He also co-wrote the film’s screenplay with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson.

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Vin Diesel.

Thor: Love and Thunder is now showing in theaters and will soon be released on Disney+.
