Chris Hemsworth has been to his native Australia to photograph Thor Love and Thunder with director Taika Waititi and co-stars Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson. On a day off they were spotted watching the South Sydney Rabbitohs play against the Sydney Roosters in the Rugby League. They were also joined by Gladiator star Russell Crowe, with a massive beard, who has also landed a mysterious role in Thor 4.
Additionally, Hemsworth has shared a photo of himself and his wife Elsa Pataky enjoying time on a boat with Crowe.
According to the insider of the Australian outlet New Idea, Hemsworth wants to co-produce Gladiator 2 with the Oscar winner.
The source reportedly close to the Thor star said: “Chris is in awe of Russell. He depends on every word and Russ really took him under his wing. “
They added that during the filming of Thor Love and Thunder, the actors spent hours talking and sharing script ideas.

The insider claimed that Hemsworth’s wife Elsa planted the seed for her husband to play Maximus’ son.
The source added, “She often joked that they could easily pass for father and son – and Russell thinks he could be the only man who could credibly play his son in a Gladiator sequel.”
Sure, Maximus’ family was murdered in the first movie, but maybe Hemsworth could play Lucilla’s son Lucius as a grown man?
Such insider reports should be taken with a grain of salt, but it is certainly possible what is still in the works with Gladiator 2.

Hemsworth’s Asgardian god has already had his way in the gladiator arena with Hulk in Thor Ragnarok, so why not in a Gladiator sequel?
Last month, Connie Nielsen, who played Lucilla in the original Roman blockbuster, gave an update on the upcoming Ridley Scott movie.
Talk through Collider Ladies Nightshe said, “I know it’s in the ledger, so let’s see when Ridley …
“I know he had to make one or two other movies, and then I think it’s in the ledger after that, but I’m not sure where it is right now.”

While the filmmaker is currently filming House of Gucci with Lady Gaga, Al Pacino and Adam Driver for a November debut.
Nielsen continued, “Of course it would be great, and I know a lot of people want to see more of that.
“And I think we should all just see that as a separate, different movie, you know?”
Nielsen added, “But with some of the emotions and values that made Gladiator so powerful for so many people, which I think were the underlying values we talked about.
“Tyranny versus freedom, and the willingness to do whatever must be done to set a people free.
And I don’t think it would have been the same if it had been just a spectacle. It had to exist within an atmosphere of values. “
Sure, Crowe’s Maximus perished in Gladiator, but maybe he could appear in outdated flashbacks or a vision from the fields of Elysium?
