In an interview with D-23 magazine, Taika Waititi spoke about the reasons that lead Gorr, played by Christian Bale, to commit his crimes against the Gods.
“Gorr’s backstory involves being wronged by the Gods, and a lot of his motivation is getting revenge for these misdeeds… We really wanted to explore this idea of religion, beliefs, and what it means to put your faith in a higher power. And since Thor is essentially a god, what does it mean for him to represent these gods?”.
For his part, Chris Hemsworth pointed out that Gorr “has a sincere motivation” and fans who see the tape will understand why he has fallen to the limit and why he has followed this path.
“There is a real complexity to it. What he is doing is not black and white. He has a sincere motivation, which I think makes him the most interesting type of villain. He may not agree with the way he is doing it, but he understands why he has leaned over the edge and why he has gone this way..
Gorr threatens Thor’s horizon
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced: a search for inner peace. But Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), a galactic assassin seeking the extinction of the gods, interrupts his plans.
To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, like the Mighty Thor.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder will feature an ensemble cast headed by Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tessa Thompson as Vakyrie.
Also in attendance are Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillen as Nebula, Russel Crowe as Zeus, and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
Thor: Love and Thunder will hit theaters on July 7, 2022.
