In one hell of a local flex, Centennial Park has been transformed into another world for the set of Thor: Love and Thunder. Centennial Park. Centennial Park. They’re right there!!!
The Daily Mail (of course) got its hands on photos from the construction site, which show production crews hard at work as they turned the city parklands into a full-on film set.
It looks intense, and I don’t even know how to describe it. It just looks like a lot of things smashed together. You can check out the pictures, right here.
Production is based at Sydney’s Fox Studios, by the way, which is why there are so many Hollywood actors swanning around town right now.
Thor: Love and Thunder is directed by Taika Waititi, and stars Hemsworth as the god of thunder, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.
The big names don’t end there though, because Christian Bale plays the film baddie, Gorr the God Butcher. I think – I *think* – he might hate gods. I don’t know!
Chris Pratt will also reprise his role as Star-Lord in the film, as Thor was last seen on Peter Quill’s spaceship in the closing scenes of Avengers: Endgame.
Big cast, huge.
Oh, and Matt Damon most recently joined the cast after he touched down in Sydney earlier this month.
“I’m so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months,” Damon said in a statement at the time. “Australian film crews are world renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it.”
It’s still unclear who Damon will play in the film, considering he did cameo in Thor: Ragnarok back in 2017. Will he play the same character, will he play a different one? Stay tuned.
Production on Love and Thunder kicked off on Tuesday with a Welcome to Country ceremony.
Thor: Love and Thunder is slated for release May 6, 2022.
