ComicBook earlier asked Bale about the possibility of returning to the DC Extended Universe, but the actor reportedly denied it unless Christopher Nolan is at the helm. The publication quoted him as saying, "That would be a matter of Chris Nolan, if he ever decided to do it again and if he chose to come my way again, then yeah, I would consider it."

He said, "I feel like we'd probably have to close the book if I ever did it (played Thor) again... It'd probably be the finale." To recall, Thor: Love And Thunder ended with a note saying that "Thor will return.:
