While Thor: Love and Thunder are Chris Hemsworth’s fourth solo Marvel God of Thunder film, it’s also his first in several ways. This isn’t just the first time audiences have seen Thor post-Avengers: Endgame; but for Love and Thunder, he joins star-studded ensembles from various films and franchises and, to his surprise, is no longer the only Thor.
However, since this is the character’s fourth film, and he was one of the last original Avengers still active in the MCU, there are questions about Thor’s future going forward. Plus, there are now rumors that Love and Thunder might be its final bow.
The speculation reached new heights when ahead of the film’s premiere, Chris Hemsworth admitted that Marvel’s Love and Thunder “may be [his] last one.” Now, amid rising rumors, the actor has outlined his intentions and future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Chris Hemsworth Responds To Rumors Of Thor 4
When Chris Hemsworth was asked by Extra about whether Thor: Love and Thunder was the actor’s last MCU film, he claimed, “I don’t know:”
When pressed whether he wanted to return to the role, Hemsworth cut in, saying, “I love it, I love it. I’ll be back again and again until someone kicks me off the stage:”
Who Determines Thor’s MCU Future?
For Marvel fans, and especially Thor fans, Chris Hemsworth’s assurance that he will “come back again and again until someone kicks me off the stage” is a welcome relief.
However, it also goes against what the actor has previously said about his MCU future.
In a previous interview, and one that took place before his recent comments about Thor 4 potentially being his last, Chris Hemsworth commented on his MCU future at the time, saying that he loved playing Thor but “I wanted to get out before people told me to.” do it. GET OUT.”
This was a deviation from what he was saying now; and given the character’s popularity and winning partnership with director Taika Waititi, it’s hard to imagine Marvel Studios wanting to retire the actor anytime soon.
However, audiences don’t yet know what’s in Thor: Love and Thunder, especially since Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor and Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher are involved.
In the meantime, fans will have to wait and see where Thor 4 leaves OG Avenger and God of Thunder and whether the actor’s response to Marvel’s call will continue. Thor: Love and Thunder will premiere in theaters on July 8.
