Christian Bale has admitted he found one particular aspect of filming his first Marvel movie to be “the definition of monotony”.

The Oscar-winning star joined the MCU earlier this year when he played the villainous Gorr in the Thor film Love And Thunder.

However, in a new interview with GQ, Christian admitted that he didn’t exactly have the easiest time using green-screen technology on the set of the SFX-heavy movie.

“That’s the first time I’ve done that. I mean, the definition of it is monotony,” he told the outlet.”

Referring to his co-stars, who were more seasoned with the Marvel way of working, the former Dark Knight star continued: “You’ve got good people. You’ve got other actors who are far more experienced at it than me.

“Can you differentiate one day from the next? No. Absolutely not. You have no idea what to do. I couldn’t even differentiate one stage from the next.

“They kept saying, ‘You’re on Stage Three’. Well, it’s like, ‘Which one is that?’. ‘The blue one’. They’re like, ‘Yeah. But you’re on Stage Seven’. ‘Which one is that?’. ‘The blue one’. I was like, ‘Uh, where?’.”
