Sam Neill says the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still “a complete mystery” to himself – even after filming an appearance for upcoming Thor movie










Sam Neill revealed he had no idea what he was doing when he filmed his second cameo for the Thor franchise in Sydney earlier this year.

The actor, 74, admitted on Friday that he had no idea what was going on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he hadn’t taken the time to watch the movies.

“You have to devote weeks of your life to this. It’s a lifelong devotion, ”he added.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe includes over 20 films, starting with Iron Man in 2008 through to Spider Man: No Way Home, which will be released soon.

Sam’s first brief appearance in the franchise was as an Asgardian performer playing Thor’s father, Odin, in Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, alongside Luke Hemsworth and Matt Damon.

He reprized that role in Thor: Love and Thunder, in scenes shot in March.

This isn’t the first time Sam has admitted that he doesn’t understand the Marvel movies or Thor’s place within the franchise – despite having a minor role in two films.

He told Australian Radio Nova in June: “I never understood any of Thor’s movies. In fact, the entire Marvel Universe is a complete mystery to me.
