Academy Award winner Christian Bale landed in Australia to start preparing for the start of Thor: Love and Thunder production.

Recently it was confirmed that Natalie Portman has landed in Australia for pre-prodcution of the fourth Thor installment. Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi are also in Australia. Hemsworth additionally confirmed a few days ago that script meetings have already taken place. Now MCU newcomer and former Batman, Christian Bale, arrived in Australia to join them.

As we exclusively reported near the beginning of the year, Christian Bale will play the villain, but there is no confirmation of whom it’s gonna be. Fans are speculating that it’s Dario Agger (a.k.a. Minotaur) since the movie is confirmed to be taking inspiration from Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor run. Gorr the God Butcher is also a possibility.

It might take a while until we get more details. The production is expected to start in early 2021 in Australia, but due to the pandemic everything is uncertain. Maybe we will get some set photos that help us to identify Bale’s character.

If I am being honest, I don’t recognize Bale due to the bad quality and the mask, but there were also words floating around that he has arrived in Australia and it would definitely make sense as almost every confirmed cast member is already there.

Thor: Love and Thunder is expected to hit theatres February 10th 2022.
