As aforementioned, Christian Bale gave an interview to Total Film. He revealed that Thor was supposed to have a music scene by Kate Bush in Thor 4, however, it was cut. Bale said: “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,”  “ I think he just realized 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 [while preparing for the role] was the Aphex Twin video of ‘Come to Daddy’. But I don’t even know if that will be in the final film.”

Kate Bush’s song “Running Up That Hill”, from her “Hounds of Love” album featured in the fourth season of Stranger Things and became insanely popular after that, topping the UK charts. Bush wrote a hearty thank you note in her personal blog for the showrunners of Stranger Things.


She wrote: “I salute the Duffer Brothers for their courage – taking this new series into a much more adult and darker place. I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives,” Bush said. “By featuring Running Up That Hill in such a positive light – as a talisman for Max the song has been brought into the emotional arena of her story. Fear, conflict, and the power of love are all around her and her friends.”

Alas, Kate Bush’s music scene was cut from Thor 4. The addition of her music would have been great, considering the waves that her song made after its inclusion in Stranger Things season 4. Do you think Thor 4 should have had her music in the film? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.

Thor: Love and Thunder releases on July 8, 2022.
