Academy Award winner Russell Crowe has joined the cast of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
Deadline has confirmed that Russell Crowe has boarded the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios project Thor: Love and Thunder. Crowe was rumored to be a part of the film’s cast after he was spotted alongside Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman at a rugby game in Australia.
The identity of Russell Crowe’s Thor: Love and Thunder character is being kept under lock and key, but it sounds like his role is just a cameo. According to Deadline, Crowe is “one of many surprises to come out of the film.” Other celebrities like Matt Damon and Melissa McCarthy were recently seen shooting cameo appearances for the movie in Australia.
Full details on the plot for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder are currently being kept under lock and key, though the film will be partly based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic book run, in which Jane Foster becomes the new Thor. Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on May 6, 2022. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Russell Crowe, Chris Hemsworth and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
