Chris Hemsworth Isn't Ruling Out More 'Thor' Movies
The Aussie superstar isn't ruling out future Asgardian adventures.
He was one of the handful of stars in 'Avengers: Endgame' whose Marvel contract was rumoured to be coming to an end, but it looks like Chris Hemsworth isn't putting down Mjølnir just yet.
In a recent interview with 'Variety', Hemsworth opened up about the radical changes to his Marvel character. Anyone who remembers the early 'Thor' movies would remember Hemsworth's character as a rigid, humourless hero with gorgeous hair.
All that changed for the third film, 'Thor: Ragnarok' where the tone, aesthetic and Hemsworth's characterisation was completely turned on its head. Less of a Shakespearean drama with capes, the addition of director Taika Waititi's tone of voice injected 'Ragnarok' with so much fun.
"I felt like I was typecast by whoever was writing those scripts," Hemsworth told 'Variety', "I feel like the creators were stuck on where they could take the character, and was this all he had to offer? I felt there was so much more we could do."
Since 'Ragnarok', Thor has become comic relief for the Marvel films and -- while a great deal of his 'Endgame' arc focused on grief and grappling with failure, there was also the divisive decision to turn the hunky Thor into an overweight alcoholic.
The conclusion of 'Endgame' also saw Thor joining the unruly gang of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy', potentially hinting that he's become part of their ranks in the lead-up to 'Guardians Vol. 3'.
Still, the 'Men In Black' star isn't ruling out any future solo films for Thor. "I’d still love to do more, to be honest," he said, " I don’t know what the plan is. I feel like we’ve opened up such a different character. I feel more energised for the possibility of where it could go."
Following 'Endgame' there isn't much known about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or what role Thor will play. Keeping his cards to his chest Hemsworth added, "I’ll use that in other places and other characters if it’s the end here."
