Russell Crowe (57) will play the role of Zeus in the new Marvel movie ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’. The actor confirmed this in the podcast ‘JOY Breakfast with The Murphy’.

“Now I get on my bike and ride to the Disney / Fox studio and around a quarter past nine I am Zeus in Thor 4”

At the end of the conversation with the presenters, the Australian actor shared his program for the rest of the day confirming the news of his new role. “Now I get on my bike and ride to the Disney / Fox studio and around a quarter past nine I will be Zeus in Thor 4, ” said the 57-year-old. The film will be shot in Sydney.

At the end of March, it was announced that the actor, who previously played the lead in Gladiator and Robin Hood, would play a – at that time still unknown – supporting role in the fourth Thor film to be released in February 2022.

The lead role is again played by Chris Hemsworth, who also played the superhero in the earlier Thor movies. Natalie Portman (as the female Thor), Tessa Thompson (as Valkyrie) and Christian Bale (as Gorr the God Butcher) can also be seen. Taika Waititi, who directed the third part Thor: Ragnarok , is once again directing.
