THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER - Taika Waititi Enlists A-List Actress To Play "Hela" In Asgardian Play Scenes

So, we know that Thor: Love and Thunder will feature another Asgardian play, but who will take on the role of Hela in that Thor: Ragnarok recap? Well, we know, and you can find more about the cameo here...

Thor: Love and Thunder will feature another Asgardian play, this time recapping the events of Thor: Ragnarok. It's a clever way to bring fans up to speed on what happened to the God of Thunder the last time we saw him, and an excuse for filmmaker Taika Waititi to deliver some memorable cameos. 

Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth, and Sam Neill have all been enlisted to play Asgardian actors (you can see them in action here), but what about Hela? Well, thanks to Mail Online, we now know that Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy will be taking on the role of Thor and Loki's villainous sister. 

Given McCarthy's comedic background, these scenes should be an absolute riot, and it'll be great fun to see what the actress does as she parodies Cate Blanchett's take on Hela. 

We also get a better look at the costume Luke Hemsworth will wear as Thor in Love and Thunder, and it's hard not to wonder whether the actual God of Thunder might be decked out in something similar. The gold look definitely pays homage to one of Jason Aaron's runs, so we'll see. 

Photos like these obviously don't reveal anything about the movie's plot, so fingers crossed we'll soon learn more about what Marvel Studios has planned for Thor's next adventure.
