Did you think that Thor: Love and Thunder had too many big name actors already in the mix?
Let’s hope not, as the Taika Waititi MCU blockbuster is adding another Oscar-winning star to its impressive roster.
Russell Crowe is set to appear in the new film, something which was first suspected over the weekend when photos surfaced of him in Australia with Chris Hemsworth and the cast.
There’s no word yet on what role Crowe will play in the film, as he’ll be joining a massive ensemble that includes Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Christian Bale, along with the Guardians of the Galaxy team (Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillian, etc.), the return of Matt Damon, Sam Neill, and Luke Hemsworth in cameos, along with Melissa McCarthy joining that little acting troupe, and so much more.
It’ll be fascinating to see how Waititi tries to balance all of these huge names without overstuffing the latest film, a hotly anticipated property after his semi-reinvention of the character in the highly acclaimed Thor: Ragnarok.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on February 11, 2022.
