Christian Bale Goes Full Jared Leto Joker As Frankenstein’s Monster In The Bride First Look – SlashFilm


Dare we say Frankenstein’s monster is looking a little … damaged?

Maggie Gyllenhaal unveiled the first look at her upcoming “The Bride!” courtesy of an Instagram post showing off a camera test of her two big stars. Christian Bale as the Frankenstein’s monster definitely has all the requisite scarring, ratty clothing, and sharp cheekbones we’d expect to see from the unholy creation … but a chest tattoo emblazoned with what appears to be the word “Hope,” which will inevitably bring to mind bad memories of Jared Leto in that ill-fated “Suicide Squad” film? That’s definitely a choice! You can check out the embedded social media post below, which was captioned by Gyllenhaal as, “Meet The Bride & Frank 🖤”

Jessie Buckley as the Bride maybe won’t stir up quite as many headlines as her, ah, visually distinct co-star, but she’s certainly sporting another rather bold look with her ink-smeared face, too. If the images didn’t tip you off, it seems this film won’t be taking its cues strictly from the 1935 black-and-white classic “Bride of Frankenstein,” as the story has been described as:

A lonely Frankenstein travels to 1930s Chicago to seek the aide of a Dr. Euphronius in creating a companion for himself. The two reinvigorate a murdered young woman and the Bride is born. She is beyond what either of them intended, igniting a combustible romance, the attention of the police and a wild and radical social movement.

“The Bride!” is slated to hit theaters on October 3, 2025.
