Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi teases some epic cameos in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that he can’t talk about. Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi teases some epic cameos in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that can’t be discussed. After two Shakespearean-inspired installments – 2011’s Thor helmed by Kenneth Branagh and 2013’s The Dark World, which was directed by Alan Taylor and met with mixed reception – Waititi was brought on board for the threequel, Ragnarok. Released in 2017, the movie completely overhauled the style and tone of the Thor series. Though Marvel’s sub-franchises typically don’t extend beyond a trilogy, a fourth Thor movie was announced later in 2019.
Chris Hemsworth returns to lead the Thor: Love and Thunder cast as the titular God of Thunder alongside Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and Waititi as the voice of Korg. The incomparable Christian Bale makes his MCU debut as primary antagonist Gorr the God Butcher, a vengeful galactic killer seeking the extinction of all gods, including Russell Crowe’s newcomer Zeus. In addition to the main cast, the Guardians of the Galaxy will also appear in Love and Thunder along with a few high-profile actors confirmed to be making cameo appearances. During an interview about Thor: Love and Thunder (via ComicBook), Waititi discusses the possibility of the Marvel film surprising audiences with exciting cameos. The director is asked if Love and Thunder will meet the high set bar set by Ragnarok in terms of cameos, and he simply answers, “Yes.” Waititi wisely does not elaborate further on the film’s surprise appearances, explaining, “Otherwise it won’t be a cameo. You can’t talk about it. Then they may as well be on the poster.”
Love and Thunder’s potential for major cameos hasn’t been discussed as much as the past two MCU entries, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home. This is despite the fact that Ragnarok pulled in the likes of Matt Damon and Sam Neill as Asgardian actors playing Loki and Odin, respectively. Luke Hemsworth, brother of Chris, also appeared as an actor playing Thor. The three aforementioned stars are confirmed to be cameoing again in Love and Thunder. To surpass the high bar set by Ragnarok, Love and Thunder has also added Melissa McCarthy, who will cameo as an Asgardian actor playing Hela, the previous film’s villain. McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone, singer Jenny Morris, and Simon Russell Beale are three actors who were cast in undisclosed roles and will likely appear briefly in Love and Thunder. While Ragnarok’s surprise cameos were a novelty played off for comedic effect, they are now expected in Love and Thunder, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for Marvel to preserve secrecy and meet fan expectations, especially with so many eyes on their productions. Only time will tell if Thor: Love and Thunder can deliver some exciting cameos when the film premieres in theaters.
Netflix has renewed The Lincoln Lawyer for season 2, which will adapt The Fifth Witness, the fourth book in Michael Connelly’s eponymous book series. Netflix has renewed The Lincoln Lawyer for season 2. Based on the second book in Michael Connelly’s eponymous novel, The Brass Verdict (2008), The Lincoln Lawyer began streaming on Netflix in May 2022. The legal drama, created by David E. Kelley and Ted Humphrey, stars Goliath actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, the titular L. A. defense attorney, as he takes the case of a developer accused of double murder. During its first week of streaming, The Lincoln Lawyer was Netflix’s most-watched English series, and it continues to dominate the streamer’s top 10 most-watched list even now.
Now, Netflix has officially greenlit The Lincoln Lawyer season 2. Plot and cast details on the new show are slim, but the site remarks that the second season will also consist of 10 episodes and will adapt Connelly’s fourth book in The Lincoln Lawyer series, The Fifth Witness. Series regulars Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, and Angus Simpson are expected to return alongside Garica-Rulfo for season 2. It has also been confirmed that Queen of the South’s Dailyn Rodriguez will serve as a co-showrunner alongside Humphrey in the new season.
Given The Lincoln Lawyer’s appreciable reception and outstanding viewership, a renewal was mostly a no-brainer, although, given Netflix’s record with canceling shows, things could have gone awry. While there is no doubt that The Lincoln Lawyer is widely popular, particularly among an older demographic, its story was targeted at fans of legal pulp. The show pulled too much from the books rather than trying to become a thing of its own. With that criticism in mind, hopefully, the makers will attempt to bring a sense of novelty to the series, especially now that The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 has added some great talent behind the lens.
