WTF? Matt Damon Is Playing Loki In Thor: Ragnarok? GTFO!
If the rumors are to be believed, then Jason Bourne will be Loki Thor: Ragnarok. Sorta. According to the Weekly Planet podcast, Matt Damon will have a very unique and potentially hilarious role in Thor 3.
Apparently, the movie features a scene on Asgard, where the events of Thor 1 will be re-told by a troupe of actors and the guy playing the God of Mischief is indeed Matt Damon. This spoiler is from someone who reportedly has seen an early cut of the movie.
Given that director Taiki Waititi likes to bring the laughs, Damon's role is not only plausible, but it sounds downright delightful. I love the Thor movies and have been drooling over Ragnarok since it was first announced. It's an interstellar buddy cop movie featuring the God of Thunder and an indestructible rage mountain and the film's cast arguably features more stars than Cap 3 aka Civil War. Each and every bit of info we learn or see about this movie serves to potentially cement Thor 3's place among my all-time favorite films.
Thor: Ragnarok crashes into theaters on October 24 in the UK and then 2 weeks later on November 3 in the US. As if I needed another reason to want to live in the UK.
