This recent lot of news about cast members wrapping their coverage for Avengers 4 has worried fans that we may never see some of these actors work on an Avengers film ever again. For actors like Robert Downey Jr., that may be the case but for Chris Hemsworth, who wrapped filming just days ago, his enthusiasm for Thor in the MCU is at an all-time high.
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.
With the ginormous success of Thor: Ragnarok‘s and its rambunctious approach to all things otherwordly, it’s no surprise that Hemsworth is so pumped to do more of it. Add to that his experiences working with the Russos on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, his return (and contract re-up) to the franchise feels like a sure thing at this junction. Let’s hope they give the man what he wants after Avengers 4. There’s so much Thor stories waiting to be mined.
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
