'Ragnarok's Loki, Matt Damon, signed for 'Thor: Love and Thunder'
Matt Damon is returning to Marvel with the latest Asgardian offering of Thor: Love and Thunder. The reason we say 'returning' is because he had a pretty brief but really funny cameo in the film Thor: Ragnarok, released in 2017. You might be too engrossed in the storyline to notice Damon, but here he is again, while we wonder what will his role be.
Damon played Loki in a play by Loki
Ragnarok put Damon in the most amusing role of an Asgardian theater actor, who was seen playing Loki, Thor's wicked brother. The play, panned out in front of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) pretending to be Odin enjoying the show with grapes, demonstrated the last conversation between a dying Loki and a crying Thor. Luke Hemsworth essayed the role of Thor, while Sam Neill played Odin.
Will Damon play Rachel House's part of Goldblum's assistant?
The film also had a cameo by Rachel House of Hunt for the Wilderpeople fame, who played the assistant to Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster. Now, social media is speculating if Damon will reprise that role, which although funny, isn't prominent enough for an actor of his stature. However, now that Damon is in Australia for long, it might be for a more engaging part.
Damon is in Australia for the next few months
And it's not just him but also his other family members who are currently spending their private 14-day quarantine in New South Wales. Matt told reporters that he will be in Australia for the next few months, without elaborating on his role in the film that has Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. Meanwhile, Damon also praised the professionalism of Australian crew.
Not just Damon, even Nebula is returning to Thor
"I'm so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months. Australian film crews are world-renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with," said the actor. Recently, Karen Gillan aka Nebula also confirmed her presence in the MCU outing, as she touched down in Sydney where the title is being filmed.
