Collider reports that Academy award winging actor Christian Bale (The Fighter, Vice, Ford v Ferrari) is in talks with Marvel Studios to join the fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder! While the outlet has not revealed which character Bale is earmarked to play. But it gives us something to speculate about and which character he would likely to play, and I’ve always said this it’s never too late to add talent to your movie and to add an actor like Christian Bale is a smart move by Marvel/Disney.
This will be Bale’s first appearance in a comic book movie since The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the second time a former Batman actor has appeared in the MCU after Michael Keaton’s role as Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
My question for you is what character would you like to see him play? Let us know in the comments below.
Thor: Love And Thunder: will be directed by Waititi (JoJo Rabbit) which will be the followup to his wildly successful 2017 sequel Thor: Ragnarok. Natalie Portman is set to return as Jane and will wield the mighty Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will also return as Thor and Valkyrie, respectively. The female Thor storyline is based on Jason Aaron’s run on “The Mighty Thor” in which a cancer-stricken Jane Foster takes up the mantle and powers of Thor.
Thor and Valkyrie were last seen in this year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, with the god of thunder entrusting his responsibilities as the King of Asgard to Valkyrie as he joins the Guardians of the Galaxy on their next mission.
Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive in theaters on November 5, 2021.
