Chris Hemsworth Wants To Do More THOR Movies After AVENGERS 4
Chris Hemsworth has been playing the mighty Thor for nearly a decade, but in the span of seven years, he's donned the red cape and hammer just as many times.
The upcoming Avengers 4 will mark the official end of Hemsworth's original deal with Marvel (same as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner). But there is hope we may see Hemsworth return as Thor in films beyond that dead. During an interview with IGN Hemsworth revealed that he's in no hurry to hang up the God of Thunder's cape, if Marvel wants more.
"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. And after this last experience with Taika, and actually these last two Avengers, I feel like we’ve reinvented the character a number of times -- even in these next two, he evolves again, and you don’t get that opportunity often in a franchise. So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think."
Hemsworth also pointed out that for now, the focus is on the Avengers and the storyline about those characters.
"If I had the opportunity to do it again, I think I’d love to. 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."
Infinity War is set to hit theaters on May 4, and Avengers 4 slated for release a year later
