- Chris Hemsworth is currently starring in Thor’s fourth installment, Thor: Love and Thunder.
- In the interview he talks about the superhero he has embodied for eleven years.
- He also mentions his three children.
Eleven years ago, Chris Hemsworth first starred as Thor in the film of the same name. A real success story followed. Thor established himself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and not only got two more films, but was also admired in the “Avengers” series. The fourth installment in the Thor series is now in cinemas, Thor: Love and Thunder. As Hemsworth reveals in an interview with the news agency spot on news, the god from Asgard has changed a lot over time.
“Every time I play the character, I want to do something different. You have to keep renewing it for the audience – make it different, unique, fresh,” explains the Australian. With the first part, the makers oriented themselves even more towards the comics, according to Hemsworth. With director Taika Waititi, the fourth “Thor” part has now become much more of a romantic comedy than a classic superhero film: “It just came out of a good time together and the need to entertain the audience.”
Above all, Chris Hemsworth wants to have one thing in the cinema: fun
“That’s why I go to the cinema myself and why Taika makes films. It’s about having fun. We thought back to the time when we were kids and we sat in the cinema and into another world, another universe. In theory, we were a bunch of five-year-olds thinking about what they wanted to see in a movie,” continues the 38-year-old. And the result is impressive: hilarious dialogues, lots of action and a touching love story await the cinema-goers.
Chris Hemsworth has been Thor for over a decade now. This makes “Thor” one of the longest-running superhero series. Is there more to come after part four? “I don’t know where to go from here. I’m having a great time. My passion and enthusiasm for the character is just as fresh, if not stronger, than it was in the first film,” says Hemsworth. He would now leave another sequel to the heads of Disney and Marvel, but emphasizes that he put “my heart and soul” into every “Thor” film.
Thor actor admires co-star Natalie Portman
Thor’s great love is the astrophysicist Dr. Jane Foster played by Natalie Portman. For “Love and Thunder”, however, Portman also slips into the superhero costume – she embodies a female version of Thor. Did Hemsworth help his colleague with this transformation? On the contrary – Portman didn’t need any tips, Hemsworth copied something from her. “She understood the character so beautifully and wanted to embody the character in her own way. She blew us all away with her performance,” he says.
Thor: Love and Thunder was filmed in Hemsworth’s home country of Australia. His family was often present at the shooting. “They enjoy it all, they love the characters and the movies. But they’re a lot less impressed by it than most kids. Their father is Thor and that’s pretty normal for them,” explains the father of three.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” has been in German cinemas since July 6th.
Thor: Love and Thunder is the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The thunder god’s fourth solo film is just a small part of the wonderfully crazy world of comic book adaptations. We introduce you to all the films and Disney+ series from the MCU since 2008.
