Portman last appeared in the MCU in THOR THE DARK WORLD.
Exactly which villain Bale will become has yet to be disclosed. Many fans want to see him become Beta Ray Bill which would not be a bad decision AT ALL. However if that is the case expect Marvel Studios to switch the character up to have the villainous tendencies expected.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen the first ever Trusty Sidekick Movie Review is here. Jay Washington and Bobby Hill had the pleasure to attend an early screening of Thor Ragnarok and after seeing it have given an official review.
This review is spoiler free so you don’t have to feel as if anything was ruined. So sit back, enjoy and click on the link below.
Taika Waititi has been on the lips of many with praise. Primarily from the stars, cast and executives at Marvel Studios for his work directing Thor: Ragnarok.
If the film is successful (which it probably will be), he can pretty much write his own ticket as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is concerned.
While Waititi was making the press runs to promote the 3rd Thor solo film, he gave his insight into which character he’s possibly want to direct a film on next..
“In all honesty, I reckon I could probably bring something pretty unique to any of the franchises. I’d love to see Black Widow…as something crazy and a bit funnier than we expect it to be,” he said. “Because we know her story and it’s very sullen and very dark and her history is very dark. But! What’s the funny version of that? What’s the more entertaining version of that?”
There has been a call somewhat to give the Spy turned Superhero her own film. We finally learned some of Natasha Romanoff’s back story in the 2nd Avengers film Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Waititi goes a little more in depth as to why in particular this Avenger is who he may be eyeing.
“I really go for the underdog. I think there’s a way in with any of the characters,” he said. “You just have to find it and find what honors what’s already there with the source material but also brings it into a more entertaining form for the audience.”
Scarlett Johansson will next be seen as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in Avengers: Infinity War May 4, 2018.
Thor:Ragnarok is out in theaters November 3rd 2017. Let us know do you want a solo black widow film.
The hype behind the upcoming Thor:Ragnarok is well deserved. The sights & colors, the word from director Taika Waititi that 80% of the films script was improvised, Cate Blanchette as Hela the Goddess of Death and elements of the Planet Hulk story have made the November release not come fast enough .
Now we have some thing to add to the anticipation, the international trailer has been released and we see a little more of Doctor Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
There are Japanese subtitles but that doesn’t take away from anything in a few instances it actually enhances the cool look.
Well it may be consider a “teaser” but it is still something and we are excited about it. Director Taika Waititi has given us a fun action packed trailer for the upcoming Thor:Ragnarok and it DOES NOT disappoint.
Set to the tune of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song”, the trailer gives so much in a short amount of time. The start being the destruction of Thor’s (played by Chris Hemsworth) Mighty hammer Mjolnir by Hela (played by Cate Blanchett) as well as Asgard. From there we see Thor sold into slavery, his interaction with the Grandmaster (played by Jeff Goldblum), him finally donning his winged helmet and his running into his friend and Avengers teammate, The Hulk in the gladiator arena.
Check out the trailer below and let us know how excited this gets you for the November 3rd release date.
