Looks like Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunderwill, just like its predecessor, go for a humorous and seductively fun story. In between all the hilarious comic sequences Thor: Ragnarok, one particularly astonishing and fantastic was the depiction of an Asgardian play, an in-film enactment of Loki’s ‘downfall’ in The dark worldPlus, the scene featured actors Sam Neil, Matt Damon, and Luke Hemsworth playing Odin, Loki, and Thor, respectively.
The scene had no significant connection to the movie or the MCU, but it was fun to see these famous Hollywood faces team up with the star cast, and that too in a Marvel movie. Reportedly, both Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth will return for that Love and thunder as well as, and most likely their previous roles, the reincarnations of Loki and Thor.
In the set photos that surfaced on Twitter, both Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth wear the exact same outfits that Chris Hemsworth (real Thor) and Tom Hiddleston (real Loki) wore at the time of their meeting with Doctor Strange, followed by their father’s death, Odin’s death and Hela’s eventual release from prison. From what it seems, there could be another run of the same sequence. Maybe Taika Waititi intends to start his film with a summary of the past, but in his own humorous way; and what better option than playing a recap with “actors”.
Plus, the MCU’s thing is to give nods to small details and moments from previous movies. Earlier this year on the Disney + series WandaVision, Jimmy Woo of Randall Park introduces himself to Officer Monica Rambeau by taking his FBI card out of the sleeve. In Ant man, Woo showed interest in such card tricks after seeing Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang master them. While these details seem really insignificant, fans love these little moments of connection, which also contributes to character development.
Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok brought a whole new kind of mix of humor and action. The film portrayed Thor in a whole new light and brought some serious changes in character development for Loki and Bruce Banner. The film eventually landed Marvel boatloads at the box office and turned out to be quite a relief just before the next MCU entry, dark and twisted Avengers: Infinity WarProbably that was why Marvel renewed “Thor” Hemsworth’s contract and approved the fourth Thor movie, which would be the first time in MCU that a character gets more than a trilogy.
Besides Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth, Thor: Love And Thunder Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster would return and take on Mighty Thor’s mantle. Also, Tessa Thompson would return as Valkyrie while the whole team is from Guardians of Galaxy would also join the God of Thunder in his new quest against Gorr the God Butcher, which will be played by former Dark Knight, Christian Bale. And it is rumored that Brie Larson will return as Captain Marvel, but that has not yet been confirmed.
