“You have this birth of a hero, journey of a hero, then death of a hero,” said Chris Hemsworth
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Dear Marvel readers, As we know, all good things come to an end in real life, but even in real life, there are some of the most iconic characters whose lives ended for a better reason than screen presence. While some might disagree, we’ve all witnessed how the big events of MCU, like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, how the creators killed some of the main characters of the OG “Avengers” team, starting with “Iron Man” to Scarlett Johannson’s Natasha Romanoff or “Black Widow”.
Chris Hemsworth’s “Thor” was iconic and undoubtedly one of the main characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The thunder god of Asgard twice killed the seemingly “inevitable” creature Thanos and is considered one of the strongest roles in the franchise. However, all good things come to an end, and eventually this too. The longtime MCU star and Thor: Love and Thunder star revealed that after four standalone films and over 10 years as the God of Thunder, it might be time to step down from the role. Could he possibly die in the upcoming next MCU phase Avengers: The Kang Dynasty movie? Well, nothing is confirmed yet.
During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Hemsworth opened up about his final ride with the MCU as one of the greatest superheroes. “I feel like we’d probably have to close the book if I ever did it again, know what I mean? I feel like it probably warrants that,” Hemsworth told the outlet, adding, “I have a feeling it would probably be the finale, but that’s not based on anything anyone told me or any plans .” He added, “You have this birth of a hero, journey of a hero, then death of a hero, and I don’t know — am I at that stage? Who knows?”
Hemsworth noted that he’s “completely open” to another “Thor” film if “something unique, fresh, and unexpected has to do with the character and the world,” similar to Taika Waititi’s sequels. “I’ve always loved that experience. I’m very grateful that I was able to do something different each time,” he concluded.
It seems like like former Marvel actors Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth’s time as “Thor” has to end at some point and the actor is prepared for it. Hemsworth recently starred in Thor: Love and Thunder. The film received a mixed critical reception, with praise for its light-hearted nature and performances by Bale and Portman, while criticisms aimed at the script and tonal inconsistencies, though many critics felt the film was inferior to Ragnarok. On the other hand, “Love and Thunder” grossed over $760 million worldwide, making it the sixth highest-grossing film of 2022.
