Filming on Thor: Love and Thunder has been taking place in Sydney since the end of January. In recent months, several stars have arrived in Australia to join the cast, including Guardians of the Galaxy actors Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, and Sean Gunn, who have since finished filming and left the country. Jaimie Alexander who played Lady Sif in the first two Thor films will also reprise her role in Thor 4.
One surprise addition to the cast is Hollywood A-lister Matt Damon, who played a small cameo role during Thor: Ragnarok. His arrival caused some speculation amongst fans. One possibility is he could play the same character again if he survived Thanos’ attack in Avengers: Infinity War. Others thought that Damon would play a larger role in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Various photos from Thor: Love and Thunder‘s set have provided us with an answer. Images shared from The Daily Telegraph and shared on Twitter by @lovethundernews confirm that Damon and Luke Hemsworth, the brother of Thor actor Chris, will reprise their roles as the Asgardian actors from Ragnarok. The pair played the parts of fake Thor and fake Loki in Ragnarok during a play titled “The Tragedy of Loki of Asgard”, which Loki put on for himself whilst pretending to be Odin.
There are several images of the pair, however, one is of particular interest as it shows the two dressed in the same outfits that Thor and Loki wore during Odin’s death scene in Ragnarok.
In addition to the reveal of Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth’s roles in Thor 4, some additional actors were captured on stage at the same time. The first is Jurassic Park star Sam Neill who appeared in the same play in Thor: Ragnarok as Odin.
Also pictured is Melissa McCarthy who is dressed as a fake version of Hela, which indicates that the play being shown in Thor: Love and Thunder will be based on the events of Ragnarok.

Thor: Love and Thunder is expected to release on February 11, 2022.
