Christian Bale to play villain in 'Thor: Love and Thunder'

Christian Bale is set to play the villain in 'Thor: Love and Thunder'.

The actor has signed up to his first comic book role since portraying Batman in 2012's 'The Dark Knight Rises', and co-star Tessa Thompson has revealed Christian will play a villain.

Director Taika previously teased the new 'Thor' film - which is scheduled to start production this summer - will be the most ''bombastic'' yet.

He said: “It's going to be bigger and louder and more bombastic. It's only interesting to me if we're doubling down on how nuts 'Ragnarok' was.”

Chris also described how the role had been reinvigorated because of the film. He said: ''I've been having so much fun at it and doesn't feel old to me and it feels fresh more now than the first couple of times I played it.

“To be reinvigorated with the character and the world and to feel like we sort of have no boundaries so we can really take it anywhere is an exciting point to be in.”
