In an interview with Total Filmthe actor confessed that he was confused when the news of his casting in the long was revealed.
“It didn’t cross my mind at any point. I read someone saying, ‘Look, he’s joined the MCU.’ I mentally replied, ‘What did I do? ask someone what the MCU was“, commented.
Bale also admitted that when he researched the character’s look in the comics, he was a little scared: “He keeps running around with a thong. I thought, ‘They didn’t hire the right guy for this!’ But then Taika reassured me that it wasn’t going to happen.“.
