Thor: Love and Thunder was a fun movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The biggest highlight for me was Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher. He was simply amazing. He’s got some really kickass and creepy scenes. He was a pleasure to watch and I enjoyed every moment of his presence on screen.#ThorLoveAndThunder #Gorr pic.twitter.com/WMpUN2Rueh

Christian Bale’s talents are not being wasted in Thor Love and Thunder. Taika Waititi, if so, is the new Paul Allen. pic.twitter.com/mxYJeQHYRW

Bale fans who have been around for a long time were happy to hear that the film’s highlight was their favorite actor. Many others also started creating new memes with Gorr the God Butcher screenshots.
Although he doesn’t look like the character. While he is a great actor, his look would have made the movie epic.

Fans were heartbroken for the scenes cut from the movie, as much as they loved it. Many of them have been discussed in interviews, and many fans hope to see them on the DVD special features.
#ThorLoveAndThunder is completely underwhelming & Tonally imbalanced. Sometimes it felt like Thor’s parody. No one & nothing stood out except for Christian Bale as Gor despite his 10 min of screentime. This movie is just a movie.
