Until now, the MCU has many villain characters with their own uniqueness. After that, we can compare a lot of them with fans thinking about the best too, Comparing Hela and Gorr is what fans are capable of making.
Even now, Chris Hemsworth is making a long history of being an MCU man who has been fighting scary villains in the MCU for the past 11 years. The new one is the villain based on the comics, as we know he’s revealed to be a God butcher.
Comparing Hela and Gorr the God?
The interesting fact is, it turns out that Gorr is a new live-action character who is a step up from Hela, and seems to be the inspiration to keep them motivated. After defeating Hela as a strong villain and getting a real nerf, if we compare it to the comics, Thor will face a new terrible threat which is also the new biggest challenge in Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher.
In Thor: Ragnarok, Thor must deal with his vengeful half-sister Hela after she was imprisoned in hell for thousands of years, leading her to destroy Asgard before her real death. Even Gorr didn’t like it, but he angered Thor as the final villain and made it look like a sibling fight.
The director has given a lot of praise for Bale’s performance, even calling him the best villain in any Marvel film to date leading up to the release of Thor 4.
About why Hela is equated with Gorr, according to the Director, Gorr is something that Hela can relate to. In a recent interview with Disney, Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi and several cast and crew members discussed Christian Bale’s upcoming appearance as Gorr the God Butcher.
Waititi specifically compared Gorr as a “step forward” from Cate Blanchett’s Hela from Thor: Ragnarok, marking him as the standard in terms of how tough they needed to be to make Thor 4’s main antagonist.
“We needed to step up from Hela and find a villain who was somehow even more formidable, and we found that in Gorr, who is played by the remarkable Christian Bale.”
Hela may have had the emotional motivation to be the villain and threat to the universe, but Gorr became that way in a more mature way. But that doesn’t mean, Gorr has a story related or has a quick connection with Hela. Whatever you predict, you can answer it in Thor: Love and Thunder, which will premiere in theaters on July 8. Make sure you’re prepared with that special someone who wants to watch as well.
