Chris Hemsworth is interested in continuing to receive millions of dollars to portray sexy thunder god Thor in the Marvel Cinematic universe, a shocking new interview reveals. Hemsworth was speaking to IGN after wrapping filming on Avengers 4when he dropped the bombshell revelation.
“I’ve just, literally two days ago, finished Avengers 4 and that’s my contract – my preexisting contract is done now, so it’s kind of like, ‘Wow, that’s it.’ Two or three films ago I was like, ‘Okay, a couple more.’ I was enjoying it but I was like… I felt a little restricted,” Hemsworth said, revealing that he felt about Thor: The Dark Worldthe same way the rest of us did.
However, after Thor: Ragnarok and the two upcoming Avengers films, Hemsworth found himself reinvigorated, the same way we do every time we watch his shirtless scene from the first movie.
“If I had the opportunity to [play Thor] again, I think I’d love to,” Hemsworth said. “I also think there’s an appetite for it now, or there’s a far greater range of possibilities of where he can go now, what he can do, just because we’ve kind of broken the mold a bit.”
It’s no secret around here that I adored Thor: Ragnarok and thought it really captured an essential, delightful Thor-ness while still strongly reflecting director Taika Waititi’s voice. However, Hemsworth’s comments about the last two Avengers films do have me quite intrigued. The Russo Brothers similarly hinted at some big changes for Thor in a recent interview, and it was along the same lines of “evolv[ing]” and changing. Asked which character they were “most excited about revealing” in Infinity War, Anthony Russo said, “I think Thor … he’s gone through a radical transformation, and he’s moving forward in a way where he can never go back. And that’s always a fun place to be with a character as a storyteller.”
