Is there a Jurassic Park 4.5 coming out next year? Well, not exactly, but it sure looks that way. We already know that the great Jeff Goldblum will play The Grandmaster in next year’s Thor: Ragnarok, and now it looks like Sam Neill will reunite with his Jurassic Park co-star in an undisclosed role for the highly anticipated Marvel Studios film, news he revealed during an interview with ShortList.

“I’m not really allowed to say this and I can’t tell you what it is… I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here,” Neill said, noting how he “had to sign all sorts of things. So if I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents — and they are lethal — will come and get me and probably my children, as well.”

Before Hollywood’s new golden boy, Christ Pratt, was facing off against dinosaurs in Jurassic World, Neil’s Dr. Alan Grant and Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcom were doing the same more than two decades earlier in the groundbreaking original film directed by Steven Spielberg. They’ll be supporting players in the Marvel film, however, with modern stars like Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo playing big hitters Thor, Loki and the Hulk, respectively.

There’s no word on the movie’s official plot, but some speculate there could be ties to Norse mythology’s version of the apocalypse as well as the Planet Hulk story arc from the comics. In any event, the movie, directed by Taika Waititi, is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2017.
