After it was announced that Christian Bale was in talks to appear in Thor: Love and Thunder, fans were anxious to learn what his role would be in the film. Luckily, The Illuminerdi has revealed new details about his character.
According to their report, Christian Bale will play an intergalactic villain in the highly anticipated sequel. This is not the first time Marvel has courted an A-list actor to play a villain in the MCU, so it makes sense they want Bale for such a role.
It seems that the former Dark Knight star has not officially signed on to the project; instead, he remains in negotiations. Based on what is currently known about his role, he will play a lead in the film, specifically the main villain. Additionally, it has been confirmed that he will be an alien species, which is described as otherworldly.
Many fans theorized that the Ford v Ferrari star could be playing anyone from Beta Ray Bill to the Lord of Roxxon, Dario Agger. With this new information, however, many have speculated he could be Gorr the God Butcher. In the comics, it was Gorr who indirectly led to Thor becoming unworthy of Mjolnir, so it is possible he could play a similar role in the films. For now, though, fans are left to speculate which Marvel antagonist Bale will bring to the big screen.
