Oscar-winner Christian Bale is reportedly in talks with Marvel Studios to join Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” reports Collider. It’s not clear what character Bale is being eyed to play.
This will mark Bale’s return to the comic book realm after 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises”. Another former Batman, Michael Keaton, also starred in an MCU film when he played the role of Vulture in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
A followup to Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” Natalie Portman is also set to return as Jane and will wield the mighty Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson reprise their roles of Thor and Valkyrie respectively.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” is expected to begin filming in August for a November 5th 2021 release.
