Christian Bale who will be seen playing the super villain Gorr the God Butcher in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, revealed in a recent chat that musician Kate Bush’s current popular track nearly featured in the upcoming ‘Thor’ movie.
Christian Bale spoke to Total Film and said that director Taika Waititi has originally planned a dance sequence in the movie which featured Kate Bush’s music but eventually the scene was axed.
Christian 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 realised 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 popularity soared ever since ‘Stranger Things 4’ featured her old and popular track “Running Up That Hill”, which came from her Hounds of Love album. The album recently reached the No.1 spot on the U.K. music charts and it right now sits at the No. 4 spot on the Billboards Hot 100.
Bush had mentioned in her recent blog post that she was “overwhelmed” by the song’s popularity once again.
On her blog, Kate Bush thanked the show runners of ‘Stranger Things’ for using the song and giving it life among Gen Z. 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. By featuring Running Up That Hill in such a positive light – as a talisman for Max (one of the main female characters played by actress Sadie Sink) – 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.”
