Chris Hemsworth Has no Plans to Retire From Thor Role Anytime Soon
Chris Hemsworth has been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for almost ten years now, appearing in seven films with appearances in, Thor (2011), and subsequently appearing in The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
Now, thanks to a new interview from with the Polish magazine Elle Man, It looks like Hemsworth won’t be leaving the God of Thunder role anytime soon, even after the fourth entry in the franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder.
When asked if he would retire after the upcoming film, Hemsworth gave an answer that many fans of the character should be happy to hear.
Are you crazy?! I’m not going into any retirement period. Thor is far too young for that. He’s only 1,500 years old, it’s definitely not a film that I say goodbye to this brand. At least I hope so.”
Hemsworth also called the script for Love and Thunder even more fun than Thor: Ragnarok, his previous solo film that was more light-hearted than earlier films.
“After reading the script, I can say that I am very excited. In this production, there will for sure be a lot of love and a lot of lightning, i’m glad that after all that happened in ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ I’m still part of the Marvel Universe and we can continue the story of Thor. Of course, I can’t reveal anything about the plot. But to satisfy your curiosity, I will say that reading the script, I had a lot more fun than on ‘Thor Ragnarok,’ and that shows something because that movie was brilliant.”
Production on Thor: Love and Thunder is expected to begin early next year in Australia Fox Studios. Hemsworth and Natalie Portman have been spotted in Australia recently, hinting that the film is pre-production and could possibly start filming sooner rather than later.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Hemsworth returns as the titular character, alongside Tessa Thompson as Valkryie, and Portman, as Jane Foster, who will become the Goddess of Thunder. Also set to return are Korg (played by Waititi) and Miek who are said to play pivotal roles in the film.
