Chris Hemsworth is not about to walk away from Thor’s hammer any time soon.
In a new interview with the Polish magazine Elle Man, the Marvel superstar says he doesn’t plan to leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe after “Thor: Love and Thunder,” the fourth entry in the “Thor” series.
When asked if Thor would retire after the upcoming movie, Hemsworth asserted that it wouldn’t be the end for his character. “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,” he said. “It’s definitely not a film that I say goodbye to this brand. At least I hope so.”
When “Thor: Love and Thunder” was revealed to fans at the 2019 San Diego Comic Con, director Taika Waititi confirmed that Natalie Portman, who played Thor’s love interest Jane Foster, would return to the franchise and wield the powerful hammer. In the Marvel comic books, Jane took a spin as a new female Thor when the the original hero became unworthy to hold the magical hammer and own the title.The 37-year-old actor has played the iconic Marvel character since 2011, but he still loves the role and is feeling excited about the next film in the franchise, “Thor: Love and Thunder”
Chris has also teased information about the next “Thor” movie, revealing it will feature “a lot of love”.
Although the actor is sworn to secrecy about specific plot details, he has given fans some hints as to what they can expect from the new film.
“After reading the script, I can say that I am very excited. For sure in this production there will be a lot of love and a lot of lightning [laughs]. I’m glad that after everything that happened in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, I’m still part of the Marvel Universe and we can continue the story of Thor.”
Chris also believes that the upcoming film will be even better than 2017’s “Thor Ragnarok” which starred the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, and Tessa Thompson. The Hollywood star said: “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 this movie was brilliant.”
