If excitement for the next entry in the Thor franchise wasn’t already at an all-time high, Marvel Studio is working on adding another A-list star to cast of the film. According to Collider, Christian Bale is in negotiations to appear alongside Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder.
If Bale’s team and Marvel can strike a deal, he’ll add an MCU role to his already stacked resume. The Oscar-winning actor is best known for his role as Bruce Wayne in the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy. His other credits include American Physco, Vice and the recently released Ford v. Ferrari.
Thor: Love and Thunder will see Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman reprise their roles as Valkyrie and Jane Foster, respectively. Portman’s character is set to take on the title of Mighty Thor as she wields Mjolnir and gains the powers of the God of Thunder.
To this point, Marvel has kept the plot of Thor: Love and Thunder close to the vest, but it’s set to take inspiration from Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor run. Recently, the film’s director, Taika Waititi, revealed that the project is set to begin filming this summer. “We move down to Sydney around April, I think. Maybe,” he said. “And then we’ll start shooting around August, I think.”
