Russell Crowe’s role has finally been revealed (spoilers)

The highly anticipated film Thor: Love and Thunder is revealed a little more, with the latest statements from actor Russell Crowe, who recently joined the cast.

Love and twice as much lightning

While Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has just started with a bang with the sequential releases of WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney +, the films are still being delayed due to the health crisis. If Spider-Man: No Way Home takes up a lot of press space due to the uniqueness of the film, recently confirmed by Alfred “Doctor Octopus” Molina, Thor: Love and Thunder also excites a lot of ‘wait’ in many ways.

First off, Son of Odin’s popularity among MCU fans has exploded since the release of Thor: Ragnarok. Then it will be the only Phase 4 film that revolves around one of the six Avengers originally still alive. After all, because the film also promises a real meeting of the stars. Indeed, after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Thor will be joined by the Guardians of the Galaxy. The presence of Nathalie Portman in the role of Jane Foster has also been confirmed.

But another gigantic star of Hollywood cinema will also be there. In fact, a few weeks ago we informed you that Russell Crowe (Gladiator, American gangster) was cast by Disney to play a role in Thor: Love and Thunder after he met Superman’s father for the Man of Steel competition Zack Snyder had played. There have been many theories about what role the Australian actor was given.

On the microphone of JOY Breakfast with The Murphys, Russell Crowe revealed the secret of his character:

April 22, 2021

I’ll get on my bike, I’ll go to the Disney studio, and at 9:15 I’ll be Zeus.

You will understand that there will not be a single god of lightning in Thor: love and thunder, but two: Thor and Zeus. The King of the Gods of Ancient Greece is not a patch, but a character that appears in Marvel Comics. As part of the Olympian race, Zeus is a staunch ally of Odin, with whom he maintains a relationship based on mutual respect. However, it is not known if Marvel Studios will respect the character as present in the comics accompanying the letter: as we saw recently, Marvel Studios never hesitate to make big changes between the comics and the films.

Regardless, we can’t wait to see what Thor: Love and Thunder will give. Not only do we think casting Russell Crowe for the role of Zeus is a wonderful idea, but also that the relationship between the two gods of lightning can be … electric. To the delight of the fans! Zeus’ appetite for charming women, who is not satisfied with sharing similar powers, could turn him into a direct competitor to Thor and a little rival to his love affair with Jane Foster.
