It’s been revealed that Melissa McCarthy has now joined Taika Waitit’s Thor: Love And Thunder and she’ll be playing ‘fake Hela’, which sounds like fun.

This news was revealed by The Daily Mail, and it comes after Melissa and her husband posted a video on Instagram telling Taika that he should cast her in Thor: Love And Thunder.

Here’s what The Daily Mail wrote about Melissa McCarthy being cast in Thor: Love And Thunder:

Thor: Love And Thunder already has the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Matt Damon and Sam Neil attached.

It looks like Melissa McCarthy is a new name on that list, along with her husband Ben Falcone have now joined the cast.

Melissa and Ben are in Australia at the moment as Melissa is filming a mini-series Nine Perfect Strangers in Byron Bay.

Back on Christmas day, Melissa and Ben shared a video to Instagram, and they made a joke appealing to Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi to give them roles in Thor.

“Melissa and I are desperate to be in the film, Love and Thunder,” Ben said.

And then Melissa added, “Respectfully, respectfully, sure.”
