Actor Melissa McCarthy has apparently boarded the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder for a cameo role. She will don the character of Hela for what looks like a stage play in set photos and might be a call back to the scene in Thor Ragnarok.
McCarthy can be seen sporting Hela’s signature green headgear in the photos and videos that have surfaced online. Luke Hemsworth, wearing Thor’s costume, can be seen standing beside her.
Clearly, Love and Thunder will also feature a play scene like Thor: Ragnarok. In the third Thor movie, Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill played the role of Loki, Thor and Odin in a play being performed on Asgard for the pleasure of Odin (Loki in disguise).
