Marvel movies aren’t just about entertainment but it’s a celebration for fans. With lots of loyal fans joining in, we often see box office records being rewritten. The latest film from the studio is Thor: Love And Thunder and it stars Chris Hemsworth and Christian bale in the leading roles.
Apart from Chris reprising his iconic character of the former king of Asgard, Bale making his MCU debut as Gorr the God Butcher has been one of the main reasons why fans are excited to watch the film. As per expectations, fans are loving Bale‘s debut and are pouring in praises for his performance. However, on the whole, the film has received mixed reviews.
