With Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder starting to amass its core cast, the film is in talks with an Academy Award-winning actor.
Via Collider, Christian Bale is being lined up for a role in the picture. There’s no word just yet on which role Bale is in negotiations for, but this obviously wouldn’t be the actor’s first foray into the world of superheroes – Bale famously playing Batman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.
To date, all that we know about Thor: Love and Thunder is that is that Chris Hemsworth’s Thunder God will be joined by Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. Not just that, but Portman’s Jane will end up wielding Mjolnir and taking on the mantle of Thor.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently booked in for a November 2021 release.
