The details about his role have not been out yet but it is said to be a significant one. When we last saw Damon in Thor, he was cast as an actor playing Loki in a play. Loki, disguised as Odin, was watching this play when Thor first arrives in Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok. The scene also featured Sam Neil and Luke Hemsworth. Back then, we didn't know if Matt Damon's character survived Hela or Surtur's attack on Asgard or Thanos' attack on Thor's ship. Now it looks like Damon's character did survive. Or he could be playing an entirely new character here. Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor is the only superhero franchise within the MCU to get a fourth instalment.

Matt flew to Australia with wife Luciana Barroso and children, Isabella, Gia, and Stella. On his arrival in the country, Matt told DailyMail, " I'm so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months. 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. Australia definitely is a lucky country."
