Christian Bale Confirmed for Thor: Love and Thunder

Love and Thunder and Batman 

It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten any hard news on the next batch of Marvel films. There’s been countless rumors of the X-Men casting, Henry Cavil as Wolverine, and oh so many more, but time to put focus on some concrete news!

A while back, Collider broke the news that Christian Bale was in talks to join Thor: Love and Thunder. Very little was known about the potential role, but we got an update. Tessa Thompson, being the saint she is, dropped some knowledge on Bale’s potential role. 

She stated in an interview with ET Now that Bale would be in fact the film’s villain. Let’s just do a quick cast check here: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Christian Bale.

Taika Waititi is also back as writer and director for the film. Little outside the core cast is known and so far no hints towards who Bale will be playing. That won’t stop us from trying to guess though will it?

Hot Take Zone

Welcome to Shane’s Hot Take Zone where I’ll throw out crazy ideas I hope films take with little or no proof at all. This installment of HTZ is that Christian Bale will play some Asgardian who is a cousin to Thor and believes he has the rightful claim to the throne over Valkyrie. Ridiculousness will ensue as Thor, Jane Foster, Valkyrie, and who ever Bale plays, compete to win the throne to rule Asgard. I think Thor has to partake due to his standing as the son of Odin, but he just really wants to play Fortnite with Korg and Miek.  

Someone has to beat noobmaster69. Honestly I’d love to get a MCU short of Korg and Miek trying to take him on.

Sound Off

Who do you think the villain will be? Have you been hammering for a Korg and Miek show as well? Do you think there will really be Love and Thunder? Should we get an Asgardian dating show with that name? Let me know in the comments down below!
