So reinvigorated is Chris Hemsworth following the success of Taika Waititi's 2017 smash hit Thor: Ragnarok, the Aussie wants to head to the negotiating table with Disney to sign on for more Marvel movies. The actor has been reported to wrap his involvement in the upcoming sequel Avengers 4, yet with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans said to be ending their time in the series alongside Hemsworth, the God of Thunder might not have left the scene just yet.
The trailer for Avengers: Infinity War would be the first time that the Guardians of the Galaxy would join the main arc of the franchise for a major crossover, with Thor being front and center of that event. Having echoed the sentiments of fans that his standalone titles have been underwhelming leading into the third movie, Hemsworth believes that all parties would be eager on a renewal.
Chris: I've Rekindled My Love With New and Improved Thor
Enjoying an interview with IGN, Hemsworth admitted that he was comfortable with an MCU exit once 2019 had come and gone. As Waititi found a way to reinvent a relatively one dimensional character, he sees more currency moving forward.
"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,'" Hemsworth said. "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."
Viewed as a stereotypical superhero who fits the comics, the actor argues that Waititi's vision has installed a different perspective on Thor. Whether there is more action comedies to come or going down a different path, Hemsworth wants to go the extra mile.
"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."
Spider-Man Sequel Aiming For Summer Berlin Shoot
Omega Underground have reported on events taking place with Tom Holland's follow up to Spider-Man: Homecoming. From the information they have gleaned, the blockbuster will head to Berlin of all places for the summer.
"Omega Underground has learned that Watts could be shooting some of the sequel in Berlin, Germany again. This could explain why they might be looking at a non-American version of Gwen Stacy (rumored). Also, it looks like production is expected to begin on June 1st and will wrap sometime in September. While it’s expected to return to Atlanta same as Homecoming, Venom, and the upcoming Silver & Black, we haven’t heard an official or local word that’s been cemented but it’s still assumed to be happening."
