Christian Bale is one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood and accumulates outstanding titles under his belt, such as ‘American Psycho’ and ‘Batman the dark knight’.
Recently, the star gave life to Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods, villain of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.
Unfortunately, the film received a lot of negative reviews from critics and the public.
And it seems that the Ballet have their complaints.
In an interview for QAhe said that the feature marked his first experience shooting in chroma keythose blue and green screens that help generate the visual effects we see in the final version of a production.
During the conversation, Ballet admitted that it was a very tedious experience and that he didn’t know what to do.
“It was the first time I did this business of acting in front of a green screen. The best definition for this is boredom, monotony. I’ve worked with actors who are much more experienced at this than I am. It’s kind of like playing make-believe. You have no idea what to do. I couldn’t even tell when we moved from one scene to another. They kept telling me, ‘You’re in scene three.’ But I didn’t know how to position myself. I was like, ‘Is it blue or green?’”
Ultimately, he said he accepted the role because he was excited about the complexity behind Gorr’s actions.
“When I was offered the role, I thought, ‘Sounds like an intriguing character; I might do something fancy with it, who knows?’ And I liked ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘. I took my son to see ‘Ragnarok‘ and I think I was more excited than he was… He wanted to leave in the middle of the movie and I insisted that we stay in the movies.”
So, what did you think of the performance of Ballet in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’?
Remembering that the sequel is already available on Disney+.
The film features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he has ever faced: the quest for self-knowledge. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, being the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
The cast is also made up of Jaime Alexander (Lady Sif), Jeff Goldblum (Grand Master), Christian Bale (Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods) and Russell Crowe (Zeus).
Melissa McCarthy will play the “fake version” of Hela in the Asgard theater troupe, alongside Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill.
