Will the Grandmaster show up in Thor: Love and Thunder? Jeff Goldblum was recently asked about playing his fan-favorite character. As it turns out, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will have a chance to hear Goldblum as the character at least once more, according to the actor. But it's a little different than you're probably thinking. Goldblum is currently out promoting his new Disney+ series The World According to Jeff Goldblum, which just debuted this week with the first two episodes.
Jeff Goldblum was asked about Thor: Love and Thunder over the summer at the D23 Expo, but he could not divulge anything and played coy. This time around, he seemed a little bit more open, though he still isn't saying much. For now, it seems like the Grandmaster will more than likely have at least a cameo in the upcoming Thor sequel. Goldblum explains.
"Hey, we're talking about it, in fact. You know, I hope so. I love Taika Waititi, he's a great director and a friend of mine, so I hope so."
It should be good news for MCU fans to learn that talks area being held right now between Marvel Studios and Jeff Goldblum to return in Thor: Love and Thunder. However, the actor just recently played the Grandmaster again for another Marvel project coming up. This project is less top secret and has had a lot of information about it revealed over the past few months. Goldblum had this to say.
"But I played the part again a couple of days ago. I went to the Disney studios and I recorded the Grandmaster's voice for an episode of a show that's gonna be on Disney+ called What If...?"
While all of this is great news, the actor did find himself in some internet hot water recently. It was reported that Jeff Goldblum would work with director Woody Allen if the opportunity should arise. The pair first worked together on the comedy classic Annie Hall. But the idea of working with Allen triggered a lot of people on Twitter, and those certain individuals claimed that Goldblum was cancelled. Some fans came to Goldblum's defense. And it seems that the quotes from the actor have been forgotten just days later.
It looks like most of the heat from Jeff Goldblum's recent words on Woody Allen have died down after social media had deemed him, "cancelled." The actor is out promoting the latest Disney+ series and will more than likely make the rounds again for Disney and Marvel Studios for when the What If...? series debuts. As for Thor: Love and Thunder, we'll just have to wait and see what happens and who Taika Waititi wanted to write into the script this time around. The interview with Goldblum can be seen above, thanks to the Buzzfeed YouTube channel. As a warning, Goldblum is in full Goldblum mode, so consider yourself warned.
