“You say, ‘I know what you’re doing.’ He’s right there in the name, isn’t he? But I made the mistake of searching for it on Google and oh no! (in the comics) runs in a thong all the time. And I thought: ‘They don’t have the right man for that!’ And then Taika quickly dispelled any notion of running into it. But I always thought about what I could do with this in front of a blue screen: I could wear whatever I wanted later on,” he told TotalFilm.
Christian Bale’s influences on ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’
The Director Taika Waititi has shown in the previews that this fourth installment will be musical –the trailer has the rhythm of Sweet Child O’ Mine, by Guns N’ Roses– so some influences for Bale come from that place, so in addition to the words of who is behind the camera He was influenced by Nosferatu, Kate Bush and Aphex Twin.
“Obviously there’s kind of a slight Nosferatu attitude. Taika and me we wanted to do a full dance, which we couldn’t do, but we had all this Kate Bush kind of stuff in which we work. But I think she realized she was never going to be allowed to put that in the final movie. He would say the most common thing he watched was Aphex Twin’s ‘Come To Daddy’ video. But I don’t even know if that’s going to be in the last movie,” he stated.
