While it’s been long suspected, there’s now confirmation that Christian Bale will play the villain in Thor: Love and Thunder, and it comes from one of the cast members in the movie.
Tessa Thompson spoke a little bit about the movie to Entertainment Tonight and after confirming she’s read the script she said this about the new cast:
“Some familiar faces, some new people into the mix. Christian Bale is going to play our villain, which is going to be fantastic.”
While there has been speculation that Bale could be playing Dario Agger in the movie, the casting information circling describes his villain as “alien and otherworldly”. That seems to describe characters such as Gorr, Gladiator, or even Michael Korvac more than Dario.
