GLADIATOR & MAN OF STEEL Star Russell Crowe Confirmed For Secret Cameo In THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER

After being spotted hanging out with the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder in Australia over the weekend, a new report has confirmed that Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe has joined the all-star cast.

Just days after being spotted at a rugby match with the cast of Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder over the weekend, Deadline has confirmed that Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator; Man of Steel) has officially joined the cast of the Taika Waititi-directed sequel, which will see the return of Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame; Extraction) as the titular God of Thunder.

Further details are currently unavailable, but his role is said to be a fun cameo and one of the many surprises fans can expect from the hotly-awaited sequel.

Fellow Academy Award-winner Matt Damon (Jason Bourne; The Martian), Luke Hemsworth (Westworld; Death of Me), and 3x Golden Globe-nominee Sam Neill (Jurassic Park; Jurassic World: Dominion) have also been formally confirmed to reprise their roles from Thor: Ragnarok, although their involvement had already been spoiled by set photos. 

In addition to Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, the cast will also feature Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Academy Award-winner Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, 8x Academy Award-nominee Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Taika Waititi as Korg.

The Academy Award-winning Waititi will return to the director's chair, utilizing a screenplay he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Someone GreatSweet/Vicious). Plot details are currently under wraps. 

Thor: Love and Thunder hammers its way into theaters May 6, 2022.
