Thor: Love and Thunder New MCU Concept Art Reveals Russell Crowe's Wild OG Role

Upon the release of Thor: Love and Thunder, new concept art of star Russell Crowe’s original function in the film are revealed online. Thor: Love and Thunder sees the return of Chris Hemsworth in his long-running titular duty as the Norse god of thunder. Rejoining him is Natalie Portman as his ex-girlfriend Dr. Jane Foster who winds up possessing Thor’s powers, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and also Taika Waititi as the voice of Korg. The sequel also presents new characters such as Christian Bundle’s Gorr the God Butcher as well as Crowe’s Zeus.

Zeus had a minimal function in Thor: Love and Thunder, initial appearing when Thor, Valkyrie, Jane, and Korg choose Zeus’s aid to build a military to fight Gorr. Thinks don’t go according to plan and Thor winds up tossing Zeus’ lightning bold with his breast, apparently eliminating him. Zeus didn’t have a big impact on the story besides the group stealing his lightning bolt, yet the movie’s post-credits scene made it clear Zeus would repay on Thor by sending his kid Hercules after him. This has huge effects for future Thor stories, but it nearly really did not occur.

Concept artist Miles Teves, that dealt with Thor: Love and Thunder, took to his Instagram account to expose that Crowe was initially thought about to play not a god, yet Satan himself. Teves published 2 pencil drawings of the Oscar-winning star as the Evil one, the first being on an intense throne with horns as well as hooves as well as holding a cut human foot, as well as the 2nd with an extra funny and also vibrant take of him loosening up on a sofa, still keeping that very same leg. Look into both of the artist’s original messages listed below:

While Teves jokingly speculates that Wonder rejected the idea of Crowe playing the Devil because of his images, the work has actually gotten a lot of positive feedback from fans online, with many discussing what the film might have been with this inclusion. Thor: Love and Thunder continued the new instructions that Waititi first offered the Thor franchise business in Thor: Ragnarok, as the most up to date movie has a lighter and also rather sillier tone. The depiction of Crowe’s Zeus as psychopathic however funny is no exemption, as well as it’s fair to speculate if he would certainly have gone similarly if playing Satan.

Considering that its release, Thor: Love & Thunder has received blended testimonials on Rotten Tomatoes, which continues a new fad of MCU movies performing less than average considering that Phase 4 began. A lot of maybe pinned on Waititi’s style, counting way too much on jokes as well as amusing minutes rather than driving the tale onward. Even after that, the idea of introducing Satan in the MCU would be way too wild to comprehend. Perhaps there is an opportunity for Thor to encounter Satan in the future, yet it could be saved for an Avengers-level danger rather. Yet with Crowe already as Zeus in Thor: Love and Thunder, it’s virtually specific that he would not be playing the Devil anymore.
