You do realise that the lone fact that he's in negotiation stage means he's interested in the film? Studios don't just get to this stage without previous conversations. Now it's just about money and schedule.Batman's Batman wrote: ↑January 7th, 2020, 10:16 pmBale may be asked to join this movie, but will he join? No. Bale doesn't make movies for a paycheck, and playing a role in Taika Waititi's goofy Thor movie is something you'd do only for a paycheck. There's nothing in terms of acting that can interest an actor of his caliber. Not to mention, he's said he's done with capeshit. If he'd want to return to this niche of films, why pick up a project that will not allow you to do anything acting-wise outside of doing what three hundred other actors have aleady done in the MCU? Bale will decline, and thank god. They will waste him. But he already knows that.

I know directors have minimal creative freedom in MCU films, but this interview with Taika is depressing to read. He's brutally honest about how he gets to decide stuff even if he writes the script
https://variety.com/2020/film/features/ ... 203501770/There’s so much excitement about the Natalie Portman of it all in the next “Thor.” How closely are you going to hew to the comics? Is her character Jane Foster going to have cancer in it?
We don’t know. That comics run was a big inspiration, and was an influence on the first few drafts. But at Marvel, we always change everything. I could say one thing right now, and in two years, it will be the complete opposite — or that thing won’t exist. We continue writing even in post-production.
Based on what Marvel wants?
Based on what the audience wants. We test the film. We shot for two weeks on “Thor” with our pickups. There were huge, huge character changes, huge story changes. We reshot entire scenes. I think that’s why they do good work. They’re relentless in their pursuit of just a good movie.
Would you like for Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie to be explicitly queer in this next movie?
I think so. The IP is not mine. But with the actors, I feel whatever makes them comfortable — whether they feel like there’s a natural choice, or a natural way for that character to go — then I’m pretty supportive. If Tessa wanted to do that, I’m in.
