23 Jun – While most actors would be elated to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Christian Bale the A-list actor recently admitted that he didn't actually know what that was.

In a recent interview with Total Film to promote the upcoming "Thor: Love and Thunder", Bale, who plays the supervillain role of Gorr the God Butcher stated that he actually had to ask what the MCU is after being cast in the movie.

Bale, who was asked if he had any reservations about playing another comic book character after playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in three of DC's "Dark Knight" movies, stated that it didn't even enter his head at all.


Christian Bale was the Dark Knight from 2005 to 2012

"I'd read that, and people would go, 'Oh, look at this! He's entered the MCU!' And I'd go, 'I've done what? I haven't entered [expletive], thank you very much.' I'm like, 'The MCU?' I had to ask what that was," he said.

Speaking about his role in the movie, Bale said that he initially thought he would have to run around in skimpy underwear after seeing what Gorr looks like in the comics.

"And I thought, 'They don't have the right man for that!' And then Taika quickly dispelled any notions of running around in that. But I always did think what he could do with this in front of a bluescreen – he could chuck on whatever he wants later on," he added.

The upcoming movie is set for release on 7 July 2022.
