But it wasn’t always his character. At first, in fact, the actor was chosen to play … Satan!
This was revealed by concept artist Miles Teves, who has published some preliminary studies done for the character on Instagram:

They commissioned me to do this by telling me that Russell Crowe could have appeared in a comic cameo as Satan in Thor: Love and Thunder. In the end it wasn’t like that and I hope it’s not due to my drawings.
