Christian Bale could be about to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to Collider, Bale is in talks to star in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder. However, no details were revealed on who or what the former Batman star may be playing.
Chris Hemsworth returns for his fourth solo Thor outing. Tessa Thompson will reprise her role as Valkyrie from Avengers: Endgame, and Natalie Portman returns as Jane Foster after sitting out Thor: Ragnarok.
Bale is not the first Batman to join the MCU, Michael Keaton who starred as Tim Burton’s Caped Crusader in 1989, played Adrian ‘The Vulture’ Toomes in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Taika is one of the most creative minds in Hollywood, it’s no wonder Bale would be interested in a return to comic book movies to work alongside him.
Thor: Love and Thunder hits screens November 5, 2021.
