Unfortunately, a scene referencing the video was edited from the finished film

Aphex Twin's 'Come To Daddy' video inspired Christian Bale's character in new Thor film

Christian Bale has revealed in an interview that he took some inspiration from Aphex Twin's iconic 'Come To Daddy' video while in character as Gorr in the upcoming Taika Waititi-directed film Thor: Love And Thunder.

In an interview with Screen Rant, Bale said: "I only had absolutely one request, which was that I had referenced the 'Come to Daddy' video by Aphex Twin. There's a character in it that inspired me regarding Gorr, and I did say to Taika, 'Here's the deal, I want to have the scream.' And if you see the video, you'll understand what I mean. I said, 'I want to have that scream in the film.'"

However, despite being filmed, that moment was taken out of the final edit of the film, Bale said. "I do understand, but that deal wasn't kept. Because it was, again, something which was just a little too extreme perhaps for the PG-13. Might have had people running for the exits. But we did do it, and it's on the cutting room floor somewhere."

'Thor: Love And Thunder' hits cinemas on 7th July. You can watch the video for 'Come To Daddy' to get an idea of what Bale was referring to below.
