Christian Bale seems to have signed on to join the MCU!
Tessa Thompson has confirmed to EntertainmentTonight that Oscar-winner Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari, The Dark Knight) has indeed landed the villain role in Thor: Love & Thunder, but kept mum about plot details and who he’ll be playing in the sequel.
THOMPSON: “Yeah, I’ve read the script. I can’t tell you much but lots of exciting text messages exchanged between Natalie [Portman] and I, we’re gonna have fun.”
“…Christian Bale is going to play our villain which is fantastic and it’s gonna be good.”
Filming is expected to begin shooting this August in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia at Fox Studios Australia.
There seems to be an assumption that the Loki series on Disney+ could connect to the upcoming Thor sequel alongside Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
The current release date for Thor: Love & Thunder is set for November 5th, 2021.
