Fans show excitement for Christian Bale in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder film, after his character received the audience highest test scores out of all the other MCU villains the film franchise has had.

Since the cast and crew’s interview with Fandango, folks are keen to see Bale oscreen after Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Taika Waititi spoke highly of him and his arc. They’re curious to see what Bale’s interpretation of the Marvel villain will be like, after they said that viewers will more likely root for or sympathize with him.

Some began to theorize that we might see Gorr’s origin in the upcoming Marvel film, which would probably happen considering that we need to know his side of the story if they want audiences to feel anything for the new Marvel baddie.

Just recently, the new emojis that will accompany the hashtags for Thor: Love and Thunder have been released, as well as new character posters for the film. Since then, fans are even more excited to see Bale appear on screen.

Thor: Love and Thunder comes to theaters on July 8, so we don’t have long to go until we find out whether or not Bale’s big bad will live up to the steadily-rising expectations and hype. Given that we’re talking about one of the best actors in the business as a villain in cinema’s most popular franchise, though, we’re feeling pretty confident the Academy Award winner is going to knock it clear out of the park.
