Christian Bale didn’t know what was in the MCU until Thor: Love and Thunder

Actor Christian Bale didn’t know he was in some sort of “cinematic universe” when he joined the cast of Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

The actor who played the Caped Gotham Crusader in The Dark Knight trilogy recently told Total Film he didn’t even know what the acronym “MCU” (Marvel Cinematic Universe) meant before he abandoned DC comics in favor of the opposite multiverse.

“I was reading this and people were like, ‘Oh, look at that! He made it to the MCU! And I’d say, “What have I done? I didn’t fucking fit in, thank you very much,” Bale said. “I’m like, ‘MCU?’ I had to ask what it was.”

The Oscar winner also told the hilarious moment he found out about his character, Gorr the Butcher God, a sinister Marvel supervillain he didn’t even know existed.

“I made the mistake of googling [Gorr] and oh no! [In the comics,] he runs around in a thong all the time,” Bale told Total Film.

He added, “And I thought, ‘They don’t have the right person for this!’ And then [director Taika Waititi] quickly dispelled all thoughts of running around in it.”

Asked if he had any reservations about portraying another comic book character after playing the critically acclaimed Batman, Bale quickly dismissed the idea.

“Absolutely not, no. It didn’t even cross my mind,” he said.

The Method actor also shared that he and Waititi discussed how to make the character less serious, and that he wanted to add a dance scene inspired by singer Kate Bush, who was recently resurrected in Stranger Things.

“Obviously there’s something of a lightness to the Nosferatu,” Bale said. “Taika and I wanted to do a whole dance, which we didn’t get, but we had all these Kate Bush things we were working on. But I think he just realized that he will never be allowed to include it in the final cut of the film.”

Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment in the Thor franchise, is due in theaters on July 8th.
