When it was revealed that Matt Damon was was in Australia as part of the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder, fans were split on whether he would return in his role as an accomplished Asgardian actor portraying Loki or if he might be tackling a meatier role such as Balder the Brave. New set photos today from The Daily Mail have put and end to that speculation.

Previous set photos from Little Bay, Sydney showed the construction what we now know to be an elaborate stage where Damon and Luke Hemsworth will reprise their Thor: Ragnarok roles as Asgardian actors, this time apparently to tell the story of the death of Odin. Given the fact that Sam played “fake Odin” in Ragnarok, it’s possible the actor might also sneak on set to play the Allfather once again.
Thor: Love and Thunder is now in production in Australia and set to hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
