Bale recently gave an interview to Total Film Magazine. When asked if he was okay with playing another comic book-inspired character after Batman, he said: Absolutely not, no,” he said. “That didn’t even enter into my head at all. I’d read that, and people would go, ‘Oh, look at this! He’s entered the MCU!'” Bale continued: “And I’d go, ‘I’ve done what? I haven’t entered s—, thank you very much.’ I’m like, ‘The MCU?’ I had to ask what that was.” 

The actor further revealed that he Googled Gorr and it was a mistake: “You sort of go, ‘I know what he does.’ It’s right there in the name, isn’t it?” he said. “But I did make the mistake of googling him and, oh no! [In the comics] he runs around in a G-string all the time. And I thought, ‘They don’t have the right man for that!'”  “But I always did think what he could do with this in front of a blue screen,”. “He could chuck on whatever he wants later on.”
