Christian Bale Possibly Joining the Cast of “Thor: Love and Thunder”


The Dark Knight returns…to Asgard? There’s Hollywood buzz that the former Batman actor is in talks to join the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Christian Bale has not acted in a superhero movie since 2012 and this would make his entrance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to release in November 2021. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tessa Thompson are all set to return as their MCU characters. Taika Waititi is returning to direct as well. Details are scarce, but so far we know Jane Foster will be wielding Mjornir in this movie.

There’s no word on what character Christian Bale could be playing. In the meantime, comic book fans are speculating who Bale could play and who the Thor movie villain will be. Some wonder if he will play Thor’s Asgardian friend and ally Balder the Brave, who has not made a movie appearance yet. Others speculate that the villain could be Gorr, who first appeared in Jason Aaron’s Thor comic series back in 2013. Jason Aaron is the writer who made Jane Foster adopt the Thor identity, so it seems the MCU will be borrowing ideas from Aaron’s comic storyline.

Who would you like to see Christian Bale play in Thor: Love and Thunder? What comic villain do you think will be the big bad for Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman to fight in this sequel?
