Tessa Thompson Confirms Christian Bale will Play the Villain in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

After much speculation, Christian Bale’s role in Thor: Love and Thunder has (mostly) been confirmed.

Tessa Thompson, who stars in the MCU as Valkyrie, was on the Westworld season 3 red carpet where she spoke to ET Online about the upcoming fourth Thor film. Thompson confirmed that she’s read the script she said this about the new cast:

“I’ve read the script. i can’t tell you much but, there’s been a lot of exciting text messages between Natalie (Portman) and I. Taika’s been writing the script, and there are some familiar faces, some new people into the mix, Christian Bale is going to play our villain, which is going to be fantastic.”

Bale’s role in Love and Thunder has long been rumored to be the main villain, with characters such as Dario Agger, Mephisto, and more being floated as potential choices for who Bale is playing.

What’s even more funny about this is Christopher Nolan’s Harvey Dent quote from The Dark Knight carries a lot more meaning now: “You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
