Chris Hemsworth recently wrapped up filmingAvengers 4 and has expressed interest in continuing to play Thor beyond Avengers 4. Hemsworth spoke with IGN while promoting his latest movie, 12 Strong, saying he felt a new light under Thor after Thor: Ragnorak.
“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 [Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4], I feel like we’ve reinvented the character a number of times [and] 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.”
This sounds like Thor could very easily be surviving Avengers: 4, but just because he wants to return for more, it is not a guarantee. They could film all the scenes involving Thor, but in the end, the decision ultimately belongs to the Russo Brothers and Marvel president Kevin Feige on whether Thor actually survives or not. They could just cut out the scene where Thor survives and use the scene where Thor dies. It has to make sense of the storyline that the Russo Brothers are bringing to life. Nevertheless, Hemsworth’s optimism for a return seems that Thor just might survive Thanos and all the potential events that will occur in Avengers 4. Fellow Asgardian, Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson, chimed in on Twitter that she would be interested in doing more movies with the God of Thunder.
Hemsworth, like the other original Avengers, will have his contract with Marvel end after Avengers 4. Despite that being said, contracts can be renewed if both sides agree if there is more development to be shared for each of the characters as long as the storyline permits it. After seeing Thor: Ragnorak, I definitely want to see more of the all-new Thor and see what he could bring to the table in the rest of Phase 3 and potentially Phase 4.
