Christian Bale plays Gorr the God Butcher, Tessa Thompson plays Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander plays Sif, and Russell Crowe plays Zeus. Chris Pratt and other Guardians of the Galaxy cast members also feature in the film.

Writer, director Kevin Polowy said, "#ThorLoveandThunder📷 is fucking great. I think instantly one of my favorite Marvel movies - probably cause it’s easily the funniest, yet still had me choked up by the end. I hope Taika Waititi never stops making Thor movies."

Meanwhile another user said, "THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER is a rockin’ great time with electrifying action, lots of laughs (the screaming goats!) & a profound story on absent gods & our desire for love. Natalie Portman makes a mighty return & Christian Bale slays it as the terrifying Gorr. The best Thor film yet!

Yet another fan expressed that Thor Love and Thunder is far more episodic. They said there are big laughs and Christian Bale plays the stereotypical villain.. The user further said that the post credits is epic.

A critic said, "Christian Bale is phenomenally menacing as #ThorLoveandThunder📷’s villain, Gorr the God Butcher. One of the creepiest Marvel villains we’ve ever seen on screen. Gave me some Dark Knight Ledger Joker vibes at one point."
