I can’t see him being Bill, because I don’t think there’s any chance he’ll sign on for multiple films. Bill definitely isn’t a one-off.
If it is Bill couldn't that just be a pure voiceover gig with someone else doing the motion capture
Could be the easiest way for Bale to do multiple movies.

If he actually voices a CGI Beta Ray Bill and just does Bat-Bale voice the whole time I would be deeply amused.

Doesn't have to be this movie and barely has any link with the topic, but I also REALLY want to see Chris Hemsworth do the three Thors!

I really would much prefer an attempt at the God Butcher story to be an animated affair to really do it justice. That or something not attached to the hip with the MCU though who know's when we'll see one off movies from Marvel

oooh That would be amazing, the scope of hte story would lend itself better to animation anyways!

"Fat" Thor was a great way to show Hemsworths range, having a bitter King Thor play off dumbass younger Thors would be a treat!

My dream God Butcher movie is an animated film that is on the level with Into the Spider-Verse. Not so much in the actual look of the film but the amount of talent, creativity and the time to pull off bringing Esad Ribic's art to life.

I would die on the spot.

I know their TV show initiative must have been a whole new set of challenges for them, but I hope the next step in their global domination is an in house animation studio. Spider-Verse was technically innovative, but you are right, the PASSION and TALENT bleeds through the screen, you feel the love. Would love to see that done for Ribic's art!

He would be good, but I still feel Keanu would better pull off the melancholy and naivety of the character.

Would be cool but it's more Taika at the helm that will bring the goods and make the most of it.

With a name like Love and Thunder and the reported plotline, I doubt we get God Butcher, even tho that would be amazing. But Christian Bale playing Gor would be so so good. Save that for the a fifth and final Thor film, completing his character arc.

Yeah God Butcher works extremely well as a sendoff for Hemsworth Thor. Just have him sacrifice himself at the end of the God Bomb climax, solidifying him as the greatest god who ever lived.

I want it to be Gorr so bad bcuz imagine Bale chewing the scenery as that guy, but I feel like we’re gonna end up with Cul Borson, the God of Fear... I’m sure it’ll be fun either way tho.

The God Bomb & god slave camp would be some amazing shit to see in live action tho...zomg
