He will play primary antagonist Gorr the God Butcher, alongside Jaimie Alexander who plays Lady Sif, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster aka Mighty Thor, as well as most of the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy.

And while details of his role are still thin on the ground, one thing that's for sure is that Bale is going in full pelt, once again proving his commitment by changing his image for a character.

The 47-year-old has undergone numerous transformations in his career, which have seen him drastically commit to the movies he takes part in.

For example, American Psycho (2000) saw Bale restrict his diet to play Patrick Bateman.

The main character, an image-obsessed psychopath, is extremely ripped, with Bale cutting out sugar, fat and carbs, eating just lean protein to drop his body fat.

Speaking to The Guardian, Bale did so to stay true to the character.

He explained: "With Patrick Bateman, his physicality is much more important than with most characters. He deals totally in the superficial, and he's incredibly narcissistic."

Another of his transformations was for 2004 psychological thriller The Machinist.

Taking on his role as Trevor Reznik, Bale lost about 60 pounds in four months, weighing just 120 pounds when he started filming.

According to reports, his diet only consisted of water, an apple and a cup of coffee each day.

Five months after filming finished, he was on to his role as Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, who is sculpted and toned.

So after losing all of his weight previously, he then regained weight, but instead of doing it the healthy way, he went straight in on pizza and ice cream, according to Mail Online.

For American Hustle (2013) Bale had to gain more weight for his role as con artist Irving Rosenfeld.

In a training plan we can all get on board with, Bale said: "[I] ate lots of doughnuts, a whole lot of cheeseburgers and whatever I could get my hands on. I literally ate anything that came my way. I was about 185 and went up to 228."
