Thor: Love and Thunder- Chris Hemsworth says working with Christian Bale was ‘intense’ and ‘scary’

Thor: Love and Thunder will see Christian Bale make his MCU debut as the terrifying Gorr the God Butcher. The Academy Award winning star has made a name for himself as one of the most respected stars in Hollywood, especially for his dedication to his craft. So it comes as no surprise that his co-stars, including the likes of Thor himself Chris Hemsworth, found the star a tad bit intimidating.

According to a report in The Direct, Hemsworth revealed how the entire mood on sets would change instantaneously whenever Bale appeared. The former recalled how the rest of the cast would be immersed in improvisation and having fun, and then Bale would walk onto the set and make the rest of them remark “Oh, my God! This is really intense. This is really scary.”

Hemsworth went on to talk about how the cast and crew were left surprised when Bale switched from villainous to ‘totally normal’ in between his scenes. The actor recounted that Bale would go on to talk about his weekend and surfing, in between takes, calling the latter’s process ‘fascinating’. Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the film, praised Bale for managing to fit his villainous role within the more ‘colourful’ and ‘irreverent’ parts of the film as well.

The upcoming Taika Waititi directorial also stars Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Waititi, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, and Vin Diesel, who will reprise their roles from within the MCU. Russell Crowe also stars.
