Matt Damon recently talked about returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Loki for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder wrapped filming a while ago, but production wasn’t free of set pictures. One of the rounds of set photos revealed that Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth would return as stage actors who play Loki and Thor.
In those set photos, it was also revealed that Melissa McCarthy would be playing a stage version of Hela as it appears we will be getting a reenactment of the Thor: Ragnarok events. On The Jeff Cagle Show, Damon opened up about his “secret” cameo in Love and Thunder:
“I don’t know if it’s secret or not though everybody knows. I went down there to shoot. I think they sussed out, because paparazzi took pictures of us so that they sussed out what we were doing. We were kind of reprising a cameo that we, that Luke Hemsworth and I did in the last one. And we had a ball and so Taika [Waititi] had us back again, to kind of run that joke back and upgrade it a little bit.”
