Christian Bale Circling Role in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

Christian Bale Circling Role in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

Is there a Marvel Comics character you think Christian Bale is ideal for?

This is not the Batman, or even The Batman but a guy who used to play Batman - Christian Bale. Although Bale remains a DC icon, it looks like he's about to jump ship to the distinguished competition at Marvel, as Collider reports he is "in talks" to join Thor: Love and Thunder, the upcoming fourth Thor film from Marvel Studios.

Should the deal close, it would be Bale's first big franchise movie since his final performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2012's "The Dark Knight Rises". The actor can now be seen in Ford v Ferrari but doesn't have anything else lined-up at the moment, so his schedule is open.

Perhaps Bale is playing either Cul or a member of the Congress - taking a minor character and turning him into, perhaps, a villain for the tag-team of Thors to tackle.

As for who he could be playing, I have no clue, but I'd love it if he was Korg's brother or something. 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.

Are you excited to see Christian Bale join Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder?

In addition to that, Thompson told Comic-Con that her character Valkyrie "As new king [of Asgard], she needs to find her queen".

Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) which will be the followup to his wildly successful 2017 sequel Thor: Ragnarok.

Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive in theaters on November 5, 2021.
