The two actors are the latest big names to be announced for the project that is set to be directed by What We Do In the Shadows director Taika Waititi, joining the returning Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, and Marvel debutant Cate Blanchett who is set to play the villain Hela.

Mark Rufallo’s Hulk is also set to make an appearance in the movie titled Thor: Ragnarok which is set to be released in the fall of 2017.
