Matt Damon had one of the best cameos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Back when Thor: Ragnarok released, it was hilarious to see him play Loki in a play put up by Loki who was actually pretending to be Odin.
The simple yet hilarious cameo, along with Chris Hemsworth's brother Luke Hemsworth who happened to play Thor in the same play, was one of the highlights of a movie filled with great moments.
And now, who would've thought that Matt Damon would actually join the cast of the next Thor movie? But apparently, it's happening and people are excited and confused about it.
He's already reached Australia and is currently isolating for 14 days to help prevent any potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). It is believed he'll start shooting for Thor: Love and Thunder after his mandatory quarantine ends.
Talking about shooting the land down under, he said, "I'm so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months. Australian film crews are world-renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it."
While it's unclear what role he's going to play in the movie, but since he mentioned that he's going to be in Australia for a couple of months, we can assume it'll be a more substantial role than a little cameo.
Side note, the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder gets better and better with every new announcement.
We already had the OGs Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Dave Bautista, along with probably Chris Pratt and Karen Gillan, and of course, Christian Bale as the villain.
Now, with Matt joining, we can already guess that the next Thor movie top every other MCU movie.
People already are guessing what it could be and what they want him to play, but there's an overwhelming number of people who just want him to play an actor playing Loki as he did in Ragnarok.
Or, maybe just a great and important character who just happened to take on a few acting roles on the side.
And, knowing Taika Waititi, he'll probably have a hilarious backstory for Matt Damon and how he ended up as an actor playing Loki in Ragnarok.
If Matt Damon is really in Thor: Love and Thunder, I hope he’s playing the same character he did in Thor: Ragnarok except it turns out that was Balder the Brave the whole time, who also acts on the side as it turns out.— Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) January 18, 2021 Great plug.
Thor: Love And Thunder now has Dave Bautista, Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan and Matt Damon (maybe) on board
It might be last minute but if they need someone for a skinny beardy film journalist role I can make myself available https://t.co/tZU9dLORXU
Looks like Matt Damon is back for Thor: Love and Thunder. I really hope he's just playing the same role as in Thor: Ragnarok.— Paul Stefko (@PaulStefko) January 18, 2021 It's so meta.
I’m convinced he was playing an asgardian actor playing Matt Damon playing Loki. And it was spot on!— Stephen Hyams (@StephenHyams) January 18, 2021 No one will forget that.
Nobody is forgetting that.— markus ray (@markusrayburns) January 17, 2021 Oh, definitely.
LOKI IS BACK!!! 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/qQetmMPO1W— rodr1gu3z_123 (@Rodr1gu3z_83) January 17, 2021 It won't be a Thor movie without Tom Hiddleston.
MATT DAMON JOINED THOR LOVE AND THUNDER !!! I like him and I’m happy he’s gonna be in the film but IF Tom Hiddleston isn’t gonna be in it when the Loki from his play is in the movie, I’m gonna lose my shit pic.twitter.com/U4D6prTGtf— Beb loves Loki (@hometoharryx) January 18, 2021 No, that's so sad.
No, but with these news of Matt Damon being in Thor4 all I can think about is if he'd reprise the role of a random Asgardian actor. And at some point Thor would ask that same group of actors to do one last play in Loki's honor, this time reenacting his final IW sacrifice pic.twitter.com/cpN2uwD5Y3— Pia (@princloki) January 18, 2021 Finally.
So the random Asguardian theatre actor will finally get his own name https://t.co/GokB9S62oB— jana wants moots (@tonyisasleep) January 18, 2021 That's what I'm thinking.
Matt Damon wouldn't drag his entire family to Sydney and then do quarantine with them for two weeks stuck there that entire time in a hotel room just a for a quick cameo they could have filmed a couple of months before it's May 2022 release...likely a different and bigger part— Christopher Marc (@_ChristopherM) January 18, 2021 Yes!
christian bale + matt damon?????????? yes https://t.co/HXRVyO1WR3— jm (@jmjmjmjmc) January 18, 2021 Honestly, Taika can definitely make that happen.
If Matt Damon indeed HAS been signed on for Love and Thunder, I need him to continue playing actor Loki throughout the movie with multiple jokes about how they “need him to act like Loki” in ‘X’ situation to fool people. pic.twitter.com/3cHZW3f4O5— alana (@im_alana_) January 18, 2021 And, we love to see it.
Matt Damon slowly becoming a running gag in Taika's movies https://t.co/IswZ7iddlf— leslie 王女 0 (@lesbobomb) January 18, 2021 So many ideas.
In Thor: Love and Thunder, I want Matt Damon to play the Asgardian actor from Ragnarok, and for him to have a La La Land styled subplot, of a young struggling actor. Yes I’ll cry if this doesn’t happen.— Nate (he/him) (@guidebythelight) January 18, 2021
