Melissa McCarthy in Thor Love and Thunder
A new face joins the cast of Thor Love and Thunder, and it’s Melissa McCarthy. His role in the fourth film dedicated to the God of Thunder was anticipated by photos taken on the set in Australia by the Daily Mail. The actress will play the sister cattivissima Thor, Hela, the Goddess of Death, but its role is not what it might seem.
Melissa McCarthy will not bring Hela back to life, defeated by Sultur’s fury during Thor Ragnarok, but she will play his stage version. In fact, in the third film dedicated to Thor, in Asgard, a group of fictional actors reproduces the events that led to the alleged death of Loki. Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth, Chris’s brother, play the actors who pretend to be Loki and Thor. Just to such a curtain, we will add Melissa McCarthy, who will be the actress who pretends to be Hela. Although no confirmation has arrived from Marvel Studios, the photos show her wearing the iconic clothes of the ruthless goddess.
The Thor 4 theatrical show will then star Loki, Thor, and Hela, during their battle before Ragnarok. Luke Hemsworth and the husband of actress Ben Falcone were also present on the set with Melissa McCarthy. There are also Matt Damon and Sam Neill, who play Loki and Odin’s theatrical version. The two actors were spotted on the set in their costumes.
But here are the photos :

The rumors about Thor 4 are not over.
Will Mjolnir return to Thor 4?
Previous rumors about Thor: Love and Thunder speak of the return of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton had shared a now-canceled TikTok that saw him training with Mjolnir while tied to a harness. Mjolnir was one of the many victims of Thor: Ragnarok, after Hela easily destroyed the magic hammer with one hand. Then Thor’s instrument surprisingly made a comeback in Avengers: Endgame when the God and Rocket returned to Asgard. The two, during the events of Thor: The Dark World recovered the AEther and the hammer. However, on the Endgame ending, Capitan America proved he was worthy of raising Mjolnir to face Thanos and then allegedly brought Mjolnir back to his time.
It is therefore unclear if and how Mjolnir will return in Thor Love And Thunder. The plot marks the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who will also become the new Thor. Some Guardians of the Galaxy actors have also been spotted on the set, such as Chris Pratt and Karen Gillian, respectively Peter and Nebula
Thor 4 is directed day Taika Waititi, starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillian as Nebula, and Christian Bale like Gorr the God Butcher. Matt Damon, Melissa McCarthy, and Luke Hemsworth are the children of Odin in their stage version. The film will make its theatrical debut on May 6, 2022.
