After a Thor 4 which struggled to convince, Chris Hemsworth is not sure to return in a fifth installment. Here is his requirement to play the title role again.
57/100 on Metacritic, 68% on Rotten Tomatoes, 2.7/5 average on Allociné… Thor: Love and Thunder is far from convincing. A number of critics notably pointed to bad special effects, a storyline that didn’t make sense and a goofy tone that undermined the stakes. In short, it is not said that Kevin Feige gives the green light for a fifth part devoted to the God of thunder and storms. And in case of realization of the project, Chris Hemsworth will re-enlist only if this condition is respected.
Asked by John Horowitz in the podcast Happy Sad Confused, the interpreter of the title role explained that the next film had to have a tone “radically different” for him to come back. “You look at Thor 1 and 2, they were quite similar. Ragnarok and Love and Thunder are also similar. I think that we must reinvent [le héros]. I had a unique opportunity with Infinity War and Endgame to do some very drastic things with the character. I like that, I like people being on their guard. It keeps me on my feet. It keeps me invested”underlines the actor.

Chris Hemsworth wants Thor to reinvent himself
According to Chris Hemsworth, if anything “becomes too familiar” then “there is a risk in becoming lazy” which is obviously detrimental to the quality of his stage performance. The actor is therefore not sure whether to sign again for a fifth installment after Thor: Love and Thunder. “I don’t even know if I’m invited back, but if I was, I think it should be for a radically different version in tone”he hammers.
Chris Hemsworth is definitely very present in the media these days. In an interview given to Vanity Fairhe revealed that he was genetically predisposed to developing Alzheimer’s disease, “his greatest fear”. “I think it happens to 1 in 1,000 or 1 in 10,000 people. I don’t remember… Except that since they told me, my memory seems to be deteriorating. »
