The ever increasing cast of Thor: Love And Thunder just added another acting heavyweight to its list. Russell Crowe joins the Thor sequel, becoming an official part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. he will be joining Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and the rest in the fourth Thor movie. Marvel announced Thor: Love And Thunder at the San Diego Comic Con two years ago. The movie is shaping up quite nicely now that Crowe too has lent his powers to the project.
Of the many acting powerhouses that will be a part of the movie, there are quite a few legendary names already. Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as Thor Odinson in Thor: Love And Thunder. Natalie Portman returns as Jane Foster. The last time her character was seen in full force was in Thor: The Dark World. Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok is coming back too. The movie’s antagonist will be played by Christian Bale. he plays Gorr the God Butcher in Thro: Love And Thunder.
Apart from that, other major characters include Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) and all the surviving Guardians Of The Galaxy members. Melissa Mccarthy plays Fake Hela in the movie. Will Russell Crowe also assume such a comic role? Or will he play a character more pivotal to the plot?

The news about Russell Crowe joining the cast of Thor: Love And Thunder was brought to us first by Deadline. The report revealed Crowe’s involvement was kept a secret. It was only after the actor was physically seen on the sets of Thor: Live And Thunder that the news came to light. The actor was spotted along with the Thor 4 cast in an Australian Rugby game.
Who Could Russel Crowe Be Playing In Thor: Love And Thunder?
Marvel certainly wanted Russell Crowe’s role to be a secret. Otherwise they would not have been this hush-hush. A very interesting speculation is Russell Crowe might be part of a troupe of actors enacting the retelling of the story of Ragnarok. The last Thor movie showed us Matt Damon as Loki, retelling the story of Thor 2 in a play. Maybe Crowe is joining McCarthy, Damon, Sam Neill, and Luke Hemsworth in a similar act in Thor: Love And Thunder.
Another guess is that Crowe might be in for one hell of s surprise character. A major character teased in Thor: Ragnarok but has not appeared in the MCU is Beta Ray Bill. Given Russell crowe’s earlier performances in his previous movies, it is quite likely he will be voicing Beta Ray Bill in the new movie. Other guesses include Cul Borson – the Asgardian God of Fear, or Baldur the Brave – Thor and Loki’s brother. He could also be playing an older version of Thor from the future.
Taika Watiti and Russell Crowe hail from New Zealand. Only time will tell what these two New Zealanders have in store for us Marvel fans.
