Actor Tessa Thompson has confirmed that Hollywood star Christian Bale will be playing the antagonist in Marvel Studios' "Thor: Love and Thunder". The actor shared the news during her interview with Entertainment Tonight on the sidelines of HBO's "Westworld" season three premiere event. "I've read the script. I can't tell you much. Lots of exciting text messages exchanged between Natalie and I.

"We're going to have fun. Taika is writing (and) directing. Some familiar faces. Some new people coming into the mix. Christian Bale is going to play our villain, which is going to be fantastic," Thompson said. It was reported in January that Bale, who previously played DC superhero Batman in Christopher Nolan's critically-acclaimed "The Dark Knight" trilogy, is set to make his debut into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Taika Waititi is back in the director's chair after delivering MCU's 2017 blockbuster "Thor: Ragnarok". Chris Hemsworth will once again play Norse god Thor, while Natalie Portman is returning as Jane Foster. Thompson will be reprising her character of Valkyrie. Marvel Studios or parent company Disney are yet to officially confirm Bale's casting. "Thor: Love and Thunder" will release in November 2021.
