Crowe was last seen in Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder as Zeus.
speaking to JOY Breakfast with The Murphysthe actor accidentally let slip back in April of last year that he would be playing the iconic Greek God in the film: “I’m going to get on my bicycle and ride up to Disney-Fox studios, and around 9.15, I shall be Zeus.”
“It’s for Thor. It’s my last day of Zeus-ing about and I’m going to enjoy it,” he added.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who worked on the film’s script with director Taika Waititi, said that she had no idea about the mid-credits scene cameo that took place in the movie.

In the mid-credits scene of the movie, it is revealed that Ted Lasso’s Brett Goldstein is Hercules. And he can be seen in his full demigod attire as Russell Crowe’s Zeus complains to him.
“I saw that at the premiere with everybody else,” Robinson told Variety.
“In the same way that I guess Taika didn’t know Thor was coming back, I did not know that Roy Kent was Hercules. I’m a huge Marvel fan, so I was delighted to have one moment in the movie where I was truly surprised.”
A release date has not yet been revealed for The Pope’s Exorcist.
