Matt Damon to Star in Marvel’s Thor 4?
The shooting for Thor 4 is up and running! And if reports are to be believed, then we may see Matt Damon in Thor 4. Damon reportedly joined the cast and crew of the film in Australia. Filming for Thor: Love and Thunder will begin this month, after a series of delays due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But now, the film seems to be just moments away from going into production with most of its cast arriving. This includes Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Chris Pratt, and Tessa Thompson, among others.
Matt Damon joins Thor 4!
Back at the time of the announcement of Thor: Love and Thunder, we only knew about three sure-shot cast members. Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman were going to reprise their roles of Thor, Valkyrie, and Jane Foster respectively. And despite the COVID-19 lockdown, we kept hearing more news about Thor 4. For instance, Kevin Feige confirmed that Gorr the God Butcher would be the main villain of the movie. And Christian Bale will be portraying his character! And now, another high profile actor has joined the film – Matt Damon.
According to Australian news outlet News.com.au, Matt Damon has landed in Australia as part of the cast that will shoot Thor 4. He arrived in Syndey with his family via his private jet, but first, they’ll have to quarantine for two weeks in a private facility, as it is mandatory in Australia. We don’t know which role will be played by Matt Damon in Thor 4. However, this is not going to be Damon’s first appearance in the MCU.
He’s been a part of the MCU before as well
Damon has made an appearance in the MCU once before as well, in Thor: Ragnarok. However, you had to be a little keen to spot him because it was just a small cameo. In the movie, he played a common Asgardian portraying Loki, reenacting his death dramatically in Thor: The Dark World. Despite it being a small cameo, Damon’s appearance made a lot of headlines and attention. And he got the role because of his close friendship with Chris Hemsworth. Some say he may be just reprising his role, but as the report highlighted, it looks unlikely that Matt Damon would travel across the globe with his entire family in the middle of a pandemic just for a small cameo.
We can get to see Matt Damon in Thor 4, but it could be that he’s just here for vacations. Either way, it’ll be a delight to see him in a bigger role in the MCU.
