In an interview with Total Film, Christian Bale was asked whether he had any qualms about taking on another comic-book movie role after Batman. Bale responded ad said, “Absolutely not, no. That didn’t even enter into my head at all,” he says. He further revealed how clueless he was about the MCU and said, “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 shit, thank you very much.’ I’m like, ‘The MCU?’ I had to ask what that was.”

Bale also revealed a funny instance and shared that he tried to Google, Gorr the God Butcher. He said, But I did make the mistake of Googling him and, oh no! [In the comics] he runs around in a G-string all the time. 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.”
