Matt Damon Blames Paparazzi for Spoiling Thor: Love and Thunder Surprise Cameo

Marvel Studios might be good at keeping secrets but people have still found ways to find details about their projects. For instance, fans discovered that Matt Damon has joined the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder through some paparazzi photos. Not surprisingly, the Academy Award winner blames the paps for spoiling what would have been a surprise cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.

Early this year, Damon and his family were photographed at an airport in Sydney, leading to speculations that he was in town for Love and Thunder. Later, the Elysium star was seen on the set of the film with his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Luke Hemsworth, confirming that the two are returning as Actor Loki and Actor Thor.

The photos were exciting for fans but also a disappointment for Damon, who told Sirius XM that it was the paparazzi that spoiled his cameo in Love and Thunder.

"I don't know if it's secret or not though everybody knows. I went down there to shoot. I think they sussed out because paparazzi took pictures of us so that they sussed out what we were doing," he said.

Damon continued by explaining the scene he was working on with his co-star and director Taika Waititi.

"We were kind of reprising a cameo that we, that Luke Hemsworth and I did in the last one," he said. "And we had a ball and so Taika had us back again, to kind of run that joke back and upgrade it a little bit."

It is rather disappointing that we won't get to be surprised when Damon and Hemsworth show up in Love and Thunder. On the other hand, we are also hyped up about their upcoming appearance in the MCU sequel.

Thor: Love and Thunder will also star Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Christian Bale. The film is set to bring in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actors Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, and Dave Bautista. The new MCU flick is scheduled for release on May 6, 2022.
