    "We wanted to do a whole dance," Reveals Christian Bale about axed 'Thor: Love and Thunder' scene

    Christian Bale, who is set to play the daunting Gorr the God Butcher in the much-anticipated 'Thor: Love and Thunder,' recently revealed a creative detail that fans will unfortunately miss out on.

    "Taika and I wanted to do a whole dance," Bale shared in a candid chat with Total Film, hinting at a fascinating blend of artistry and comic book action that was ultimately left on the cutting room floor. The envisioned sequence, conceived alongside director Taika Waititi, would have been imbued with the distinct essence of British singer Kate Bush, known for her ethereal tunes and dramatic performances.

    Bringing the Unexpected to the MCU

    The missed opportunity is surely a letdown for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who appreciate its varied, occasionally offbeat approach to storytelling. "We had all this sort of Kate Bush stuff that we worked at," Bale elaborated, suggesting a unique fusion of sound and spectacle that would have added a fresh layer to the MCU's stylistic repertoire.

    The actor also dropped a tantalizing hint about the inspiration for his character. “I think he just realized he was never going to be allowed to put that in the final film," Bale said. "The most common thing I was staring at [while preparing for the role] was the Aphex Twin video of ‘Come to Daddy’."

    Kate Bush in Pop Culture

    Kate Bush, a pioneer of the English art pop genre, recently experienced a resurgence in popularity when her song "Running Up That Hill" was featured in Netflix's Stranger Things. The track, off her "Hounds of Love" album, swiftly topped the UK charts after its exposure on the hit show.

    In a personal blog post, Bush expressed her gratitude towards the Stranger Things creators, the Duffer Brothers, saying, "I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives."

    Despite the missing dance sequence in 'Thor: Love and Thunder,' Christian Bale's revelation adds another layer of intrigue to the MCU's interplay with music and dance, keeping fans eager for future surprises.
