Christian Bale, also known as Batman, could fly from DC to Marvel if online rumors are true. After several serious reports, the Dark Knight star plays an important role alongside Chris Hemsworth in Taika Waititis Thor: Love and Thunder.
It's not confirmed who would play Bale if he joined the film, but many have come to the conclusion that it is the evil businessman Dario Agger who turns into a powerful Minotaur (so think Patrick Bateman with that Ability to become a mythical creature)).
The reason for this assumption is that Thor 4 will come from the comic series The Mighty Thor, according to Waititi, which features the villain. Another villain in this series is Gorr the God Butcher, an alien creature that promises to kill all the gods – remembering Thor is a god – because he never answered his prayers.
Thor: Love and Thunder will also show Natalie Portman's return to the series as Mighty Thor, a Thor woman with all the powers of the Norse god that Hemsworth played. We also know that the film will focus on Valkryie (Tessa Thompson) rebuilding Asgard after the events of Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame.
Bale rumors aren't the first to connect a former DC movie star to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Henry Cavill, aka Superman in the DC Extended Universe, reportedly met with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige late last year over an unspecified role in the MCU.
There hasn't been much movement in these rumors, but we're sure no one would complain about seeing The Witcher in a Marvel movie.
Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to be shot this summer and is scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.
