Russell Crowe is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having been cast in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

According to Deadline, he’ll be doing his thing alongside stars of the show Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and big bad Christian Bale, who’s playing Gorr the God Butcher (it’s so sad to see Batman turn bad!)

We’re going to have to wait a while – something that we’re well accustomed to of late – to see just what Rusty’s up to in the movie, as it isn’t set to hit our cinema screens until May 5, 2022.

But hey, you can get almost seven minutes closer to seeing Thor: Love and Thunder by watching this Thor: Ragnarok gag reel:
