Drawn by artist Ahmad Safwan and shared on Instagram, the image shows Gorr holding his sword with a maniacal expression on his face. It’s a reference to the 2000s American psycho, in which Bale starred as Patrick Bateman, a narcissistic investment banker who moonlights as a serial killer. Safwan’s drawing references a famous scene when, after analyzing the career arc of rock band Huey Lewis and the News, Bateman murders fellow bandmate Paul Allen (Jared Leto) with an axe. Safwan captioned the drawing “So they didn’t go CG with Gorr. Interesting. Hope we see Christian Bale totally unleashed in there haha.”

My honest answer is ‘I don’t know’… I’m kind of curious when I see Thor, like, ‘Is there going to be something? is not it ? It’s kind of like – well, that’s the thing about Marvel when you write for them is that they’re very, very creative, but you’re kind of in your silo, your show.”
