Loki might finally return in Thor: Love and Thunder. However, it isn't Tom Hiddleston. A new report suggests that Matt Damon could reprise his role as Actor Loki, or Fake Loki, in the highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.
Thor: Ragnarok had a lot of awesome surprises including an emotional play that adapted Loki's sacrifice to save Asgard. In the dramatic play, Loki was portrayed by Damon and his cameo was one of the best things in the MCU. Interestingly, the Academy Award winner might reprise his "role" yet again.
The Australian outlet News.com.au reports that Damon and his family have arrived in Sydney and are currently quarantining at a private facility. Although it was not confirmed that Damon is in Australia to work on Thor 4, there are speculations that the actor will be working on the Taika Waititi film soon.
But is Damon actually playing Fake Loki? Some believe that it would be a clever way to confirm that "Loki" is somehow still alive but it's actually the "actor" who portrayed him in the play. Others think that Damon will be playing a completely different part since they believe that Hiddleston could show up in the movie.
For now, it is not yet confirmed that Damon is in Australia to work on Thor 4. With that in mind, it's best to take this with a grain of salt.
Thor: Love and Thunder is directed by Waititi and will star Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, and Christian Bale. The film is scheduled for release on February 11, 2022.
