Well, this was certainly unexpected. The Australian press is reporting that Matt Damon landed in Australia yesterday as a cast member of the highly-awaited Thor: Love and Thunder and the actor is currently quarantining in a private facility. No details were given on who the Bourne Identity star is playing. Damon first appeared in the Thor: Ragnarok as an Asgardian portraying Loki in one of the trickster god’s vanity displays of theater.
As mentioned by the Australian press, it’s kind of hard to imagine Matt Damon flying out to Australia and then get quarantined an extra two weeks, simply for another comedy bit like his last MCU appearance. Then again, given Taika Waititi‘s penchant for truly committing to the absurd, Damon portraying the very same Asgardian actor but maybe in a different role still exists in the realm of possiblity. It’ll be a while before we find out but it’s nice to see the fourth Thor film round off its cast with cool names.
