Christian Bale Unaware Of The Term “MCU” Says, “I had to ask what that was”

The Dark Knight makes a shocking revelation on how he didn’t know what MCU is before he joined in as Gorr!!

With Thor: Love & Thunder releasing next month, we got to see a lot of new behind the scene images and got to know some interesting information about the actors. Christian Bale, who plays Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love & Thunder also revealed how he had no slight idea about the term MCU and he had to ask what the term MCU really is.

Christian Bale has also previously played the famous DC comic character Batman for its three trilogies. Now he is back to playing a villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Gorr (the God Butcher).

In a recent interview with Total Film, he was asked whether he had any plans to play any other comic book character to which he said that “Absolutely not, no.” That this thing never even entered his head at all to play any other character.

Also, he spoke about how even after casting him he wasn’t familiar with the word MCU which is a full form of Marvel Cinematic Universe. He talked about how fans were excited about his entrance to MCU whereas he had no clue why people were that hyped about just a casting.

He says, ” People would go, ‘Oh look at this! He’s entered the MCU!’ and I’d go, ‘I’ve done what? I haven’t entered shit, thank you very much. I’m like, ‘The MCU? I had to ask what that was.”

In the interview he also further discussed about his character “Gorr” he said that he did have the primary idea of what his character was but to Google the character was his biggest mistake. Then he got to know that the Comic Book Gorr use to wear G string all the time. But the idea of G string was canceled by Director Taika Waititi.

Bale about G string says,” They don’t have the right man for that! But I always did think about what he (Taika Waititi) could do with this in front of a blue screen. He could chuck on whatever he wants later on.”

Thor: Love & Thunder main cast stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Christian Bale (Gorr, the God Butcher) with Russell Crowe as Zeus.

Thor: Love & Thunder releases on July 8th, 2022.
