With Warner Bros. continuing to step their game up with some astute casting of characters for The Batman, and accolades starting to roll in for Joker, some news coming out of the Marvel camp will raise the eyebrows of superhero/comic book-based movie fans everywhere.
That’s because it involves the greatest Batman in cinematic history, Academy Award and Golden Globes winner Christian Bale.
Bale, who was a Golden Globe nominee for his work playing race car driver Ken Miles in Ford v Ferrari, is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Marvel’s upcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder, according to Collider.
Neither Marvel nor reps for Bale have yet to comment on the rumor, and Bale has not been attached to any specific character, but considering the fact that Waititi has cited the comic The Mighty Thor as his inspiration for the next Thor film, the four-time Oscar nominee could be in talks to play the evil CEO of Roxxon Energy Corporation Dario Agger who transforms into a Minotaur, which you have to admit would be pretty freaking sweet.
Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to hit theaters on November 5, 2021.
