"I've read the script. I can't tell you much. Lots of exciting text messages exchanged between Natalie and I.

"We're going to have fun. Taika is writing (and) directing. Some familiar faces. Some new people coming into the mix. Christian Bale is going to play our villain, which is going to be fantastic," Thompson said.

It was reported in January that Bale, who previously played DC superhero Batman in Christopher Nolan's critically-acclaimed The Dark Knight trilogy, is set to make his debut into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Taika Waititi is back in the director's chair after delivering MCU's 2017 blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok.

Chris Hemsworth will once again play Norse god Thor, while Natalie Portman is returning as Jane Foster. Thompson will be reprising her character of Valkyrie.

Marvel Studios or parent company Disney are yet to officially confirm Bale's casting.

Thor: Love and Thunder will release in November 2021.
