Thor easily has one of the most compelling arcs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and with a rich comic book history under the character's belt, it already comes as no surprise how Marvel Studios wants to continue his journey in the billion-dollar franchise. Now, with Thor: Love and Thunder a few months away from release, a new rumor is suggesting that one of the God of Thunder's short-lived allies will be making his way back to the MCU.

Cosmic Circus recently unearthed a listing on IMBd which sees Peter Dinklage's hairstylist added to the Thor: Love and Thunder crew members. If you may recall, the Game of Thrones star made his MCU debut in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War as Eitri, the King of the Dwarves who helped Odinson forge the Stormbreaker. His involvement may have been brief but there's no denying that he was one of the vital characters of the film.

It's worth noting that IMDb listings could be altered by anyone but the idea of Eitri returning to the MCU doesn't seem all that impossible to buy into. You see, Love and Thunder will see Natalie Portman's Jane Foster become the Mighty Thor and we've already seen promotional material for the film where she wields her own Mjolnir. There's a good chance that Eitri might be the one responsible for creating a brand new hammer for her. How it all plays out remains to be seen, of course.

Thor: Love and Thunder hits cinemas on July 8, 2022.
