We might have a tough time convincing Chris Hemsworth to step down from the Thor role anytime soon according to some recent quotes he’s given.
Polish magazine Elle Man (via Variety) was able to speak with the Aussie actor about reprising the God of Thunder role beyond the upcoming Taika Waititi sequel Thor: Love & Thunder, as previously stated by Chris he still sounds game to keep playing the character as long as Marvel Studios will allow him.
HEMSWORTH: “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.”
He also talked-up a solid script for Thor: Love & Thunder.
HEMSWORTH: “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.”
There is a slim chance he might end up sticking with the Guardians of The Galaxy for their third film as hinted to at the end of Avengers: Endgame, but that hasn’t been exactly confirmed by director James Gunn.
Depending on the outcome of Love & Thunder, Taika might want to make fifth installment but would likely come after the Star Wars movie he’s currently developing for Lucasfilm.
Filming on Thor: Love & Thunder is expected to begin sometime between January-February of next year at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and is reportedly going to use ILM’s StageCraft technology that was made famous by The Mandalorian.
