    I actually quite enjoy HISHE's videos, but I agree with you about Cinemasins. Jeremy is an insufferable snob who makes blatantly false statements in his videos and then attempts to defend himself by saying that it's just for comedy.

    For example, I remember in his AOU video him complaining that he needed to watch Agents of Shield in order to understand why Hydra had Loki's sceptre. This despite the fact that Hydra's possession of the Sceptre was actually shown in Winter Soldier and NOT in Agents of Shield.

    Boss Logic shared this, probably has no weight to it but just thought it looked awesome.

    I’m sure he will if Disney agrees to pony up the money.

    The red skin tone and the “satanic” vibe.
    While personally not being the biggest comic book fan his face is fairly recognizable and unique.

    He did punch someone after spouting "You're not the Devil, you're practice"
    If this guys was chosen to play this character, it will make the line funnier.

    I enjoy both casually.

    CinemaSins is too much of a self aware parody at this point.

    That kinda comes with the territory of being apart of a major Hollywood mega-franchise. He ought to be used to it by now.

    Exactly. You have to expect that when you sign up.

    Still, like all the time. Every single day. I remember the original x-men cast were being asked x-men questions like, decades, after they finished almost. It must drive them nuts especially when they’re trying to promote other films. I hope they doesn’t end up scaring talent away

    Well if he doesn’t know what role he’s playing, does that mean he was given choices? Or is this one of those “I don’t care what role. I just want to work with you!” cases?

    Or... Taika’s bluffing. :hehe:

    FWIW, Bale has dropped out of negotiations before so yeah we can’t get too attached just yet.

    'The Sneider Cut' Ep. 22: Marvel Loses Scott Derrickson But Adds Christian Bale

    At the 3-ish mark, Sneider said he thinks the negotiations are further along already. So, basically, we know nothing. :hehe:

    I'd say that Taika knows 100% which role it is, you don't put actors before the characters if you know what you're doing. This goes especially if they are at the spot where they actually are reported to "be in talks", which generally means they are negotiating the contract and are well past the actor being interested in the role.

    Yeah, this seems a bit similar to when Taika said that he had no idea whether Jane having cancer would be a part of the movie or not. Like, it's a pretty major plot point to either include or leave out, and I'm pretty sure he definitely knew whether or not it was going to be a part of this movie.

    Taika wrote the script. At this point he knows exactly which stories and angles they are tackling and who he’s hiring for each specific role. He’s just playing the cards close to his vest.

    I would look to Bale’s previous work in order to get a good hint at which type of character he could be playing. My bet is on a villainous role now the question is who? Has to someone of note for him to be interested in the part. Also everyone wants to work with Taika.

    Taika mentioned the “Mighty Thor” storyline from Jason Aaron as a big influence for the story of TLT so it makes sense that Bale’s character is also featured on those comics.

    If he plays Mephisto does he need to need to change his name to AntiChristian Bale?

    Fun Fact:

    On December 2015, 7 months before Ragnarok started filming the Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Cate Blanchett was in negotiations to appear in the movie.

    Now January 2020 and 7 months before TLT starts filming we got the news from THR that Christian Bale was in talks to star in the movie.

    I don't know who Bale is playing but I hope that whoever it is, he uses his Ken Miles accent.

    I could easily see that, especially since he played a major role in the story arcs involving Foster's Thor.
