Newcomer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Christian Bale was spotted with a shaved head in Australia, where he is set to play the villainous Gorr in “Thor – Love and Thunder” under the direction of Taika Waititi.
Hair transformation for Christian Bale as he takes his first steps in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Christopher Nolan’s ex-Batman was indeed seen with a shaved head in Australia, where he is filming Thor – Love and Thunder under the direction of Taika Waititi, who has entrusted him with the role of the villainous Gorr, also called the Slayer of Gods.
A change of look which is explained by the fact that, in the comic books where he appeared in 2013, the character does not have hair. And that should facilitate the application of the makeup necessary to transform Christian Bale into this particularly formidable alien who has this appearance on paper.
It could also be that Gorr was born out of a mix of prosthetics and performance capture, technology that Christian Bale had tried for the needs of Andy Serkis’ Mowgli. Still, he will be opposed to Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman in the film expected on our screens on May 4, 2022.
While Tessa Thompson will be back in Valkyrie and Guardians of the Galaxy will make an appearance (to tie in with the end of Endgame), the feature film should be inspired by comic books published since 2014 and in which Jane Foster inherits powers from Thor. Which could give Natalie Portman, who returns in the MCU, the opportunity to face Christian Bale, whom she had crossed in the softer atmosphere of the Knight of Cups of Terrence Malick.
And during the Oscars 2011 ceremony, where they had both been awarded: Best Actress thanks to Black Swan for her, Best Actor in a Supporting Role for her performance in Fighter for him.
