Batman Has No Limits
Christian Bale might be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Dark Knight Trilogy actor is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Thor: Love And Thunder for director Taika Waititi.
Bale would be joining returning franchise actors Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. Clearly, the question is –
“Who would Bale be playing?”
Collider says the role is being kept under wraps, but hopefully he’s being sought after for some sort of villain/antagonist character.
While the report doesn’t mention what role Bale will play, people took to Twitter to suggest, or at the very least wish, he will play Beta Ray Bill –
Christian Bale can do absolutely anything, therefore he can play a horse faced man.

This is obviously kind of a big deal. Not only is Bale a major star, but this would also mark Bale’s first return to superhero movies since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises.
The actor can currently be seen in Ford Vs. Ferrari but doesn’t have anything else lined-up at the moment, so his schedule is open.
Waititi, who directed Thor: Ragnarok, is returning to write and direct Love And Thunder, and the movie is due out November 5th, 2021.
