Actor Christian Bale has hung up his cape and cowl, but he might be returning to the world of comic book heroes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Dark Knight actor is in talks to take a starring role in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Taika Waititi is stepping back into the director’s chair for the upcoming sequel which will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Natalie Portman returning to the franchise as Jane Foster. What will make this iteration of Jane more interesting is that she will be taking on the role of Thor in this film alongside Tessa Thompson returning as current Queen of New Asgard Valkyrie.
Christian Bale is a four time Academy Award nominee who took on the role of Batman for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy of films. He can currently be seen in Fox’s Ford v Ferrari. Bale’s potential role in the film has not been revealed, but we would be the Super Powered Fancast if we didn’t reach through the Thor lexicon and speculate ourselves, so expect our possible picks soon.
