Thor: Love and Thunder Concept Art shows Russell Crowe as the Devil

IN Thor: Love and Thunder, Russell Crowe appears in a cameo role as Zeus. But previous ideas for his role in the film could have seen him play a much more sinister role.

In a recent post on Instagram, concept artist, illustrator and makeup FX sculptor Miles Teves shared the concept art of how Crowe would look like Satan. According to Teves, the Australian art studio Odd Studio commissioned various art for Crowe as Satan due to the possibility of him appearing in the role. Of course, it did not go that way, but the images of Crowe appearing as Satan are still an interesting piece of trivia from the film.

In one of the pictures, Crowes Satan can be seen sitting on a throne of what appears to be flesh, with screaming mouths all over the throne. Behind him a fire rages, while Crowe’s devil holds a leg with a bite taken out of it in his hand. In another, Crowe can be seen reclining on a rocking chair, still with one leg in his hand, but with a much more relaxed and extravagant look similar to his Zeus in the last film. Eventually, a standard devil creature was split, with the creature again leaning back in a chair with a fireball covering his groin.

Thor: Love and Thunder features MCU alumni Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who now takes on the mantle of the Mighty Thor and is to wear the iconic Mjolnir. Oscar winner Christian Bale also returns to the superhero genre as he signs the villainous role as Gorr the God Butcher.

Additional cast includes franchise alumni such as Jaime Alexander as Sif, Taika Waititi as Korg and Guardians of the Galaxy stars such as Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill, Karen Gillans Nebula, Sean Gunns Kraglin and Vin Diesels Groot.
