Prepare yourself for more of Matt Damon playing Loki.

Following his hilarious, unexpected cameo in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” the Oscar winner has confirmed that he will once more be appearing as an Asgardian actor playing the God of Mischief in “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

“I went down there [to Australia] to shoot,” Damon revealed on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show.” “We were kind of reprising a cameo that Luke Hemsworth and I did in the last one.”

Damon added that “Thor: Love and Thunder” writer-director Taika Waititi, who also wrote and directed “Ragnarok,” asked he and Hemsworth “to kind of run that joke back and upgrade it a little bit.”

In “Ragnarok” a scene features a stage play being done in Asgard looking back on Loki’s life, Damon and Hemsworth give cameos playing actors during a Loki death scene. Damon is Loki while Hemsworth (brother of Chris, who actually plays Thor in the movies), plays Thor.

Thor: Love and Thunder” will feature Chris Hemsworth returning as Thor and will also star Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Christian Bale as the villain Gorr the God Butcher. Natalie Portman is also reprising her role as Jane Foster, a character from the first two “Thor” movies.

The fourth “Thor” film is set for release in May 2022.
