Russell Crowe has confirmed he will be playing Olympian god Zeus in Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder.

The actor, 57, revealed he was almost finished filming for his short part in the highly-anticipated flick.

"Now, I'm gonna get on my bicycle, I'm gonna ride up to Disney-Fox studios... and round about 9:15, I shall be Zeus in Thor 4," Crowe told Australian radio show JOY Breakfast with The Murphys. "It's my last day of Zeus-ing about."

Melissa McCarthy has also been captured shooting a scene as the Ragnarok villain Hela (originally played by Cate Blanchett).

Earlier this month, Deadline first reported Crowe would have a cameo in the fourth Thor movie, but it wasn't clear what his role was.
