Thor has been filming in Sydney for months and DAMN there's a lot of gossip.

If you haven't already noticed, Sydney has become the new Hollywood. 

Chris Hemsworth has convinced plenty of his A-lister pals (including Natalie Portman, Matt Damon, Melissa McCarthy and Christian Bale) to join him in Australia. That's partly because Thor: Love and Thunder is filming here.

Since January 26, the much-anticipated Marvel film has been filming in locations across Sydney. And my goodness, there has been a lot of gossip that's come out of it.

Including cameos and dating rumours, here's all the Thor: Love and Thunder gossip.

Taika Waititi is dating Rita Ora. 

News has it that Thor director Taika Waititi has been dating Rita Ora for the past month. Last week, the British singer posted a carousel of photos to Instagram, including a photo of herself and Waititi cuddling.

Now, sources close to the pair have confirmed they've been seeing each other for quite some time.

"They've been a couple since early March but kept things low key. However, all their friends know about the relationship. They're really into each other," a source told The Sun.

The couple has been photographed together on numerous occasions.

In March, Ora and Waititi were pictured together for the first time at a dress-up party hosted by lead Thor actor, Chris Hemsworth.

Weeks later, fans saw them at late-night bar Big Poppas on Oxford St.

And just last week, the couple was photographed with Chris Hemsworth, his wife Elsa Pataky and Matt Damon, exiting a private jet in Sydney after a trip to Gold Coast, Queensland.

Russell Crowe just confirmed he'll be in it.

While Thor: Love and Thunder already has a pretty star-studded cast (hello, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale), it just added another big name to its lineup.

On Monday, Australian actor Russell Crowe confirmed he too, will be in the film.

"I'm going to get on my bicycle and ride up to Disney-Fox studios, and I'm gonna get the hot tongs out, and around 9.15, I shall be Zeus," the 57-year-old said during an interview with JOY Breakfast with The Murphys.

"It's for Thor. It's my last day of Zeus-ing about and I'm going to enjoy it," he added.

Matt Damon might make an appearance.

Looks like another A-lister could make an appearance too.

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso have been long-time friends of the Hemsworths. And both of them, plus their three children, have been living in Australia since January.

Now, there have been some rumours suggesting that's because he'll be making a cameo in Thor: Love and Thunder.

If you've seen the previous Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, you'll know there was a brief scene about the "death of Loki", and Damon played Loki. So there's a slim chance he could return again.

The other celebrity cameos.

There are rumours that some other celebrities will be making an appearance in the film. Because, why not?

That includes, Jeff Goldblum reprising his role as the Grandmaster from Thor: Ragnarok, Luke Hemsworth reprising his role as an unnamed Asgardian actor and Sam Neill reprising his role as Odin. 

Plus, Melissa McCarthy (who's been here filming Nine Perfect Strangers) might just make a cameo because she's in Australia. Fair.

If you're now keen to see Thor: Love and Thunder, it will be released on March 25, 2022.
