In Thor 4, Christian Bale plays Gorr the God Butcher, the villain who is easier to play than Batman 

The Dark Knight trilogy, featuring Bale as Bruce Wayne, is Bale's best known role among superhero fans.  

 This time, Bale got to play the villain instead of playing the hero and now that he has a good idea of which side of the good-bad divide he really enjoys playing, he can play it more. 

Bale told Screen Rant that he prefers playing bad guys not only because it's more fun, but because it's easier. 

Gorr the God Butcher excited fans. Gorr's depiction in Thor: Love and Thunder irritated some after details emerged.  

Feige defended Gorr's changes. To make Gorr comic-accurate, motion-capture and CGI were used extensively.  

As a result, Bale would not have been able to deliver a comprehensive performance.

The world would have missed out on a very strong and complex Bale performance if Gorr had been CGI-heavy, but it would have been more accurate to the comics. 

Christian Bale explains why he enjoys playing villains like Thor 4's Gorr rather than a hero like Batman."
