You can't take eyes off him: Chris Hemsworth on Christian Bale's Gorr in 'Thor: Love and Thunder'
In the movie, Hemsworth returns as the titular superhero, a role that he previously played in three solo and four “Avengers” films.
Bale, who earlier played Batman in Christopher Nolan's critically-acclaimed ''Dark Knight'' trilogy, features in the film as Gorr the God Butcher, a galactic killer who seeks the extinction of the gods.
Hemsworth said he liked how Bale brought different layers to the character with his performance.
''There’s so much drama and insanity around Gorr, but Christian Bale managed to pull the focus right into each moment. You can’t take your eyes off him. The character is fascinating, because like all good villains, Gorr has a point.
''All of us were actually a little scared in Gorr’s presence,'' said the actor, who in the movie will be taking on the mantle of The Mighty Thor, the female incarnation of the superhero.
Actor Tessa Thompson, who reprises her MCU role of Valkyrie, found Bale ''mesmerising'' as Gorr. ''He does that thing that Marvel villains do so well, which is that you see their villainy comes from pain, from some unprocessed trauma,'' she added.
