Check out a first look at Christian Bale on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder as Gorr The God Butcher, the villain of the flick.
Set pics from Malibu, California, in what looks to be added photography and/or reshoots, have hit the net offering a look at Christian Bale in full costume wearing a silver costume that includes a full face prosthetic where we can guess CGI will finish the look of the character.
The pics show the crew attempting to keep Christian Bale covered by using a black robe, but the actor is then fully revealed which includes that Bale is completely covered in silver.

Gorr The God Butcher hunts Thor, the gods
In the comics, Gorr The God Butcher is an alien who lost everything around him and blames the gods for his misfortune. When he comes upon a dying god who he fought in battle, Gorr takes the god’s sword, the All-Black the Necrosword, and kills the god, and continues to hunt gods across the universe which led to confrontations with Thor.
Additional set pics from when Thor: Love and Thunder filmed in Australia have also shown off Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt who returns as Star-Lord, and Natalie Portman who will be featured as the Jane Foster female version of Thor.
