The Marvel Cinematic Universe? Christian Bale doesn't know her. https://t.co/vsVDH0um0n— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) June 21, 2022
In the midst of all the usual carefully curated Disney/MCU press, in wades CBale with his usual bluntness, wandering accent, and rather, ahem, unique view of the cinematic world.
In a recent interview, Bale said firmly that he had no reservations about playing another comic book character despite his stint as Batman in the Nolam films. However, he also said:
"People would go, 'Oh, look at this! He's entered the MCU!' And I'd go, 'I've done what? I haven't entered s---, thank you very much.' I'm like, 'The MCU?' I had to ask what that was.'
He also looked up the character he plays in Thor online (Gorr the God Butcher) and 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!'" Waititi actually did away with the G-string, as things turned out.
I know the obvious response to this is "I call bullshit" but this is still cracking me up.
Post your fave CBale gifs, ONTD.
