Actor Russell Crowe attends the New York screening of "Boy Erased" at the Whitby Hotel on October 22, 2018 in New York City.

Russell Crowe is expected to play a small, mystery role in Taika Waititi’s upcoming Marvel film, Thor: Love And Thunder.

Crowe’s involvement was first speculated when photos surfaced over the weekend of him in Australia with the cast of the upcoming Marvel Studios film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The role he is set to play has been kept under wraps, as Marvel could not be reached for comment.

Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman reprising the role of Jane Foster and Tessa Thompson returning as Valkyrie. Per the media outlet, Christian Bale will be returning to comic book movies for the first time since The Dark Knight trilogy to play the villain Gorr the God Butcher. Stars from the Guardians of the Galaxy films, including Chris Pratt, are also appearing in the fourth Thor movie.

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently scheduled to hit theatres on February 11th next year.
