Christian Bale: Acting In Front Of The MCU Green Screen “Definition Of Monotony”
Thor: Love and Thunder star Christian Bale was unwavering on all that green screen.
During an interview with GQ Magazine, the Marvel actor, who played villain Gorr the Butcher God in the recent Thor sequel, explained why making a Marvel movie is so monotonous.
“It’s the first time I’ve done this,” he said. “I mean, the definition of this one is monotony. You have good people. You have other actors who are much more experienced than me. Can you tell one day from the next? No. Absolutely not. You do not know what to do.
Thor: Love and Thunder debuted on July 8, 2022 and tells the story of Marvel’s Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as he tries to find inner peace while grappling with the return of his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster. (Natalie Portman), while also battling Bale’s villainous Godslayer.
“I never quite understood this thing of actors that I respect a lot and say, ‘Oh, you gotta love your character,'” he explained. “And I’m like, ‘I don’t know if they’re going to like it. I’m fine not to like it.’
Taking revenge on the gods, Gorr is certainly a dogmatic villain that’s hard to like.
But that wasn’t Bale’s main concern – instead, it looks like he struggled to get through the process.
“I couldn’t even tell one stage from the next,” he added. “They kept saying, ‘You’re on stage three. Well, it’s like, ‘Which one is that?’ ‘Blue.’ They’re like, ‘Yeah. But you are on the seventh step. ‘Which is it?’ ‘Blue.’ I was like, ‘Uh, where?’
