When asked about the criticism the fourth Thor film received, Hemsworth admitted to the publication that Love and Thunder was slightly too comedic, “I think we just had too much fun. It just became too silly. It’s always hard being in the center of it and having any real perspective…I love the process, it’s always a ride. But you just don’t know how people are going to respond.” In total, Hemsworth has starred in eight Marvel films and while he is not contracted to any other projects in the MCU, he says he will return if there is an opportunity. In the meantime, he hopes to do “some other stuff for a while.” He added, “I love the experience. I love the fact that I’ve been able to do something fairly different throughout the process. Thor 1 and 2 were their own thing, ‘Thor 3’ and 4 were a very different feel…and then even Avengers, the Lebowski Thor, the Infinity War Thor, due to different directors and I think mostly my own need to do something different.”
Hemsworth also spoke about the criticism Marvel received by top filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. In the past, Tarantino blamed the decline of movie stars to the “Marvel-ization of Hollywood” stating, “You have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters. But they’re not movie stars.” Hemsworth admitted that these comments were harrowing, calling it “super depressing when I hear that.” He added, “There goes two of my heroes I won’t work with. I guess they’re not a fan of me.” Standing firm on his MCU ground, Hemsworth said, “I’m thankful that I have been a part of something that kept people in cinemas. Now, whether or not those films were to the detriment of other films, I don’t know. I don’t love when we start scrutinizing each other when there’s so much fragility in the business and in this space of the arts as it is…I say that less to the directors who made those comments, who are all, by the way, still my heroes, and in a heartbeat I would leap to work with any of them. But I say it more to the broader opinion around that topic. I don’t think any of us have the answer, but we’re trying.”
