Thor Love And Thunder: Melissa McCarthy On Set Wearing Hela Costume

The movie is slated to hit theaters in May 2022.


Production is fully underway for Thor: Love and Thunder down under in Australia. And recent photos from the set have revealed that Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters) was on set during filming in a Hela costume alongside husband Ben Falcone (The Happytime Murders, The Boss).

In the photos posted by Daily Mail, McCarthy can be seen laughing maniacally in a green Hela headpiece, alongside Matt Damon as Loki and Luke Hemsworth as Thor. The latter pair previously portrayed these roles in Thor: Ragnarok for an Asgardian play that depicted Loki's death in Thor: The Dark World--likely suggesting (and we'll have to wait until the movie's out to know for sure) that the Asgardian actors from Ragnarok are still acting. It's unclear from the photos alone what role Falcone is portraying.

That McCarthy and Falcone would wind up on Thor: Love and Thunder is hardly a shock, given that the couple over the holiday break uploaded an Instagram "audition tape" to sell director Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, and Marvel on adding them to the cast. Elsewhere on Instagram, over the weekend Hemsworth posted some photos of an '80s-themed party, in which Damon and Idris Elba can be seen in Run-D.M.C.-style track suits.

Thor Love and Thunder is slated to come to theaters in May 2022.
