With the combined releases of F. Gary Gray's Men in Black: International and FX's critically-acclaimed What We Do in the Shadows series, British actor/comedian Kayvan Novak has had a pretty big year, getting an opportunity to work with the fan-favorite Thor: Ragnarok triumvirate of Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame), Tessa Thompson (Avengers: Endgame) and Taika Waititi (Avengers: Endgame).
Now, with the aforementioned trio all recently confirmed to return for Thor: Love and Thunder alongside Natalie Portman (Avengers: Endgame), it's fair to wonder whether Novak could possibly get a call for the upcoming Thor sequel in 2021, which would potentially reunite him with his former Men in Black co-stars.
Now, while it's still way too early for casting news, Novak did seem pretty enthusiastic about joining the franchise if given an opportunity, and joked that he half-expected Waititi or someone to have called or e-mailed him by now.
ROHAN: You’ve now worked with both Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson and you’ve also worked with Taika Waititi on What We Do in the Shadows - and since all three of them have been confirmed to return for Thor 4 - and I know it's still early - but is there any chance we could see you show up in Thor: Love and Thunder in 2021? Would a superhero movie be something you’d be interested in doing?
KAYVAN NOVAK: Oh, yeah, absolutely. I kind of actually half-expected them to have asked by now, but the phone hasn’t rung yet. I’ve also been checking my e-mail seventeen times a day, so watch this space. *laughs*
Having just brought the entirely CGI Vungus to life, it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibiliity to see Novak take on the role of Beta Ray Bill down the line, if Waititi were so inclined.
