Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also confirmed the casting: “Hollywood superstar Matt Damon joining our homegrown talent to film such a major movie in NSW is a big win creating thousands of jobs for locals”.
Matt Damon told local reporters:
“Australian film crews are world renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it. I’d like to thank the enormous support provided by the NSW government and Australian government, without which this would not have been possible.”
Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has also confirmed on an Instagram story that she was prepping to appear in the new film as well.
