Russell Crowe Playing Zeus In Thor: Love And Thunder?!?

Russell Crowe Playing Zeus In Thor: Love And Thunder?!?


Jay Cochran - April 24, 2021
Last month we brought you word that actor Russell Crowe was going to have some kind of role in the upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder movie. At the time it was not known what character he would be playing. Well now it looks like the actor himself may have let the cat out of the bag. In a recent interview with Breakfast With The Murphys the actor states that he will be playing the Olympian God Zeus.

Im gonna get on my bicycle. Im gonna ride up to Disney Fox Studios, and around about 9:15 I shall be Zeus!

He apparently has mentioned being Zeus a few other places as well. This of course has not been confirmed by the studio so it's unclear if what Crowe is telling people is in fact true or if he is just messing with folks as a mis-direct.

In the comics, Zeus and the Olympians are very much a part of the Marvel Universe. Zeus' son Hercules from time to time like Thor has been a member of the Avengers. Ares has also appeared multiple times in the comics and been an enemy of the Avengers as well. Thor and Hercules have on multiple occasions been allies and fought each other.

So if Zeus in fact will be in the new Thor movie, the next logical question most I think will have is how long until we see Hercules, and is a Hercules vs Thor stand-off in the cards???

Given who the villain is (Gorr the God-Butcher) I'm not going to be surprised if Zeus is a one-minute cameo that gets killed to establish the bad guy bonafides. But they MIGHT hint at Herc (maybe a post-credits).

My only issue with Hercules in the MCU is that they've already pretty much turned Thor into Hercules in the MCU (not entirely, of course, but in terms of a more lighthearted character and "loveable buffoon" status).

To be clear, that's not entirely a complaint (A LITTLE bit of a complaint, but not much). It plays to Hemsworth's strengths as an actor (He's got pretty great comic timing), but it does feel like it makes certain other characters harder to introduce (Hercules being foremost among them. Balder being another prominent example, even if I'd giggle if they cast Liam Hemsworth in that role).

I heard a rumor recently, can't remember where, but it said they were supposedly considering Jai Courtney for Hercules. I dismissed it at first, but after hearing this...maybe. He'd be a good fit. He could bring the same machismo and physique that Hemsworth brings to Thor, but with a little extra arrogance.

Well, I would have preferred it if he were voicing Throg, but Crowe said he's playing Zeus in an interview this morning.

Heard about that, could we also see an appearance for Herc?

I think it would be hilarious if he was part of the Asgardian Theater and at the end of the play he asks the crowd, "Are you not entertained?"

that would have been great
