‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ director Taika Waititi earlier dubbed Christian Bale’s Gorr as one of the best villains that Marvel has ever had. Speaking to AP News, the Oscar-winning filmmaker asserted, “It’s a great, really fun, weird little group of heroes, a new team for Thor with Korg, Valkyrie, and The Mighty Thor,” adding, “And, in my humble opinion, we have probably the best villain that Marvel’s ever had in Christian Bale.”
Thor’s latest flick also stars Tessa Thompson, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, and Vin Diesel. The synopsis of the film reads, “The fourth installment finds Thor on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods.”
