Kate Bush has gone viral since the iconic episode released from Stranger Things. Yet, it looks like another popular property almost featured the singer, as it turns out that Thor: Love and Thunder almost featured a dance sequence with music from Bush. Yet, what stands out is that the sequence was actually going to feature Gorr the God Butcher, who is played by Christian Bale.
Bale revealed the sequence that sadly didn’t end up getting made, as director Taika Waititi feared the sequence wouldn’t make it into the final cut. Of course, they may have snuck in some kind of sequence that is an evolution from this original idea, as he teases something inspired by Aphex Twin’s video “Come to Daddy.”
Taika and I wanted to do a whole dance, which we didn’t get to do, but we had all this sort of Kate Bush stuff that we worked at. But I think he just realised he was never going to be allowed to put that in the final film. I would say that the most common thing I was staring at was the Aphex Twin video of ‘Come To Daddy’. But I don’t even know if that will be in the final film.Christian Bale
Gorr has been teased as one of their best villains, and test screenings hint at him having the biggest acceptance score out of all MCU villains. Christian Bale is a fantastic actor, and he does hint in the interview that he has no idea that he was part of a bigger franchise. That isn’t too uncommon, not that actors only do it “for a paycheck” as some on the internet proclaim, but generally as they are interested in the role offered.
