    Right. They didn’t announce Matt Damon’s cameo. It was a nice surprise.

    Has Bale ever done a comedic movie? The Batman movies have humor in them but I wouldn’t consider them comedy like Ragnarok was.

    Very interesting news indeed. The lowest odds should be on that he plays the villain, whomever that turns out to be. That's the most likely role to be very significant but also not require him to do several films.

    I could see Taika being a big reason why he might want to join, as he seems to have taken many in Hollywood by storm. It would be pretty insane if he got Blanchett and Bale to be in back to back MCU films of his.

    American Hustle. Plus, he's arguably the funniest part of Ford v. Ferrari.

    I doubt it would happen but now that someone suggested Bale for Beta Ray Bill, I really want to see him play that character. Make it so, Marvel.

    Unexpected but awesome news. I would imagine he would be the villain or maybe Beta Ray Bill. Other then that I'm not sure who Bale would play.

    Bale as a villain could be interesting, I don't think he's played a straight-up bad guy since Shaft twenty years ago.

    Agger seems to be the other name being thrown around.

    He almost played one again. He considered the villain role in the American remake of Oldboy but I ended up doing Out of the Furnace.

    That would make sense for a villain if the MCU really is heading towards the multiverse.

    This is like Scott Hall showing up in WCW in 1996.

    gorr would be good, but i wonder how he'd handle the prosthetics or cgi face, which is why i guessed dario

    god butcher/god bomb was the only good part of aaron's run imo. also, taika used the what were you god of line in ragnarok, so maybe it is the first 2 arcs of the run

    Interesting, bale wasn’t someone I thought marvel would pursue. I don’t know what it’s like on set but I would imagine they prefer people who save the drama for the screen. I could only imagine what it’s like to spend so much money on a movie and then have to listen to a coworker who gets paid more than everyone else put together sook because the air conditioning is too dry or something.

    baldur is an interesting choice but I also love the idea above about the god butcher

    Can’t wait to see BRB banter with Korg.
    Providing BRB is in TLT and I expect he will.

    Since no one has mentioned out yet, I could see Balder, but I don't expect it.

    I know he could be great as a villain. Must be a fair chance as he is probably after a one and done role.

    I would be very surprised if Bale signs on as in the past Bale hinted at not being interested in doing another comic book movie. I guess the role Marvel offering him must be interesting to him if he's actually considering it. Either way I will actually be excited for movie if they announce this casting as before I was rather indifferent.
    I don't think Bale has ever done a comedic movie but he was hilarious in American Psycho so I'm sure he do a fine job in a comedic role.

    I feel like most actors at this point have no problem with doing MCU flicks due to the talent they attract. It's some directors that have the beef lol.

    I could see Bale as Dario Agger. Environmentalism is big right now so a evil energy company CEO would be on trend.

    But even if he played Agger, he'd still have to use mo-cap to portray his Minotaur form:

    I've been thinking for quite a while that Agger is going to be in this movie for exactly this reason. It would make sense too, given that in Ragnarok Taika was clearly leaning into the issue of refugees (another topical subject) as well as the manipulation of truth by Odin (fake news etc).

    It could also be interesting to see Thor face off against a human enemy for once.
