Following the announcement that he will be taking a hiatus from acting, MCU star Chris Hemsworth has also revealed that is ready to end his time as Thor. Speaking to Variety, the actor said that he would like his next MCU appearance to be the final chapter of Thor.
“I feel like we’d probably have to close the book if he did it again, you know what I mean?” Hemsworth said. “I feel like it probably warrants it. I feel like it would probably be the end, but that’s not based on anything anyone told me or any kind of plans. You have the birth of a hero, a hero’s journey, then the death of a hero.” a hero, and I don’t know, am I at that stage? Who knows?”
The ending of this year’s Thor: Love & Thunder movie hinted that Thor would return. However, both director Taika Waititi and Hemsworth were surprised when that note surfaced, as they are currently unaware of the plans for Thor 5. Even no plans for now, Hemsworth is open to the idea of returning as Thor for one last ride.
“I’m completely open to it, if there’s something unique and fresh and unexpected to do with the character and the world. I’ve always loved the experience. I’ve been very grateful to be able to do something different every time.”
Hemsworth appeared on National Geographic’s Limitless, where he learned that he is genetically predisposed to developing Alzheimer’s disease. Following this, Hemsworth said the experience “really triggered something in me to want to take some time off,” and he’s planning to simplify his life and spend more time with his wife and children after finishing his current commitments.
Thor has been a mainstay in the MCU for over a decade. Hemsworth has starred in four solo Thor movies, which is the most of any character in the Universe. He has also appeared in all four Avengers movies.
