The classic Harry Potter villain Voldemort caused Gorr’s design to be changed in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder.
In the Marvel comics, hat It has a very characteristic appearance since it is a white alien with no nose and sharp teeth. So slightly reminiscent of Voldemortthe great villain of the saga Harry Potter. That is why the appearance of Christian bale in Thor: Love and Thunder changed to distinguish it from how we saw Ralph Fiennes in the saga of the young magician.
Here we leave you the image of hat in the comics and Voldemort in the movies of Harry Potter:
In a recent interview, the director Taika Waititi revealed that they were well aware of how both characters were alike:
“His face in the comics, unfortunately, looks a bit like Voldemort. So I thought: People are going to make that connection automatically. So we decided to move away from that design and keep elements of the tone and the fact that he had the sword. Really, his story was the most important thing for us ».
While Christian Bale revealed his opinion on the Gorr design:
“I loved it because you really don’t know exactly what you’re doing with a character like that until you see it completely. He is in your imagination. And we didn’t have that much time, we talked about it during the quarantine… In an abstract way. But then you put on all that makeup and it worked fine. This was a godly man with tattoos, and he cut them off, and then Gorr would have all these scars. And that’s when you can really start playing with it and experimenting while shooting. You know, you find out as you go.”
In the film, hat looks nothing like Voldemort, but even so, he will be a villain who will give a lot to talk about. We can check it when Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters starting July 8, 2022.
