Chris Hemsworth Blames Himself for Thor: Love and Thunder “Wackiness”

Chris Hemsworth believes “Thor: Love and Thunder” became a “parody of himself.” In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Marvel star expressed regrets about the excessive comedy in the film, acknowledging that it was not as well-received as Taika Waititi’s previous Thor outing. Despite this, Hemsworth remains optimistic about the upcoming summer movie season.

Hemsworth acknowledged, “I got caught up in the improv and wackiness, and lost myself in the role.” However, Robert Downey Jr. highly commended Hemsworth’s contributions to their shared work on Thor.

Despite the inherent challenges in adapting Thor, Ken Branagh and Chris Hemsworth successfully portrayed him as both relatable and godlike. Hemsworth’s complex psyche makes him stand out among the Avengers, showcasing his wit, gravitas, restraint, fire, and gentleness.

Hemsworth has previously expressed concerns about fan disappointment with the latest MCU installment. In a recent interview on Josh Horowitz’s Happy, Sad, Confused podcast, he hinted that future Thor projects may prioritize a more serious tone, as preferred by fans. However, no official announcements regarding Thor 5 have been made, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further developments.

Hemsworth believes that to avoid complacency and keep the character engaging, Thor needs to be reinvented, as seen in the transitions from “Thor 1 and 2” to “Ragnarok and Love & Thunder.” He emphasizes the importance of keeping the audience and himself on their toes. Furthermore, Hemsworth recognizes that becoming too familiar with the role can lead to complacency, making drastic changes essential if he were to reprise the character. This includes alterations in tone and overall approach, ensuring the character remains fresh and captivating.

Marvel star Chris Hemsworth shared his excitement about working with George Miller on the upcoming film, “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.” During the CCXP event, Hemsworth described Miller’s meticulous direction and the camaraderie among the cast and crew.

“When creating action films, we often experiment with various approaches to achieve impressive and impactful sequences,” Hemsworth explained at CCXP. “With backups and alternative options available, it can be draining. However, working with George was refreshing because every frame was carefully considered and essential to the overall narrative. There was no unnecessary footage, as each element served a specific purpose within the broader plan and message.”

“Everything you see is essential for the journey, narrative, and film’s arc. It’s a narrative that’s supported by every element. The exhaustion was worth it. We committed to serving the film and this franchise, which has existed for over forty years.”
