In his recent Vanity Fair cover story for its May 2024 issue, Chris Hemsworth revealed what he truly thought of Thor: Love and Thunder.

When it released in 2022, the film was Hemsworth’s fourth standalone film playing the titular hammer-wielding God. In the interview, Hemsworth revealed that he feels that he thought Marvel fans deserved deserved better. He claims that the film was “too silly” because, “I got caught up in the improv and the wackiness, and I became a parody of myself.” Seemingly still haunting him with regrets, Hemsworth added, “I didn’t stick the landing.” He admitted that playing the character for so many years, he felt frustrated with the character when he played Thor for four standalone films plus the Avengers ones.

Hemsworth continues to share, “Sometimes I felt like a security guard for the team.” Feeling insecure of his role he said, “I would read everyone else’s lines, and go, ‘Oh, they got way cooler stuff. They’re having more fun. What’s my character doing?’ It was always about, ‘You’ve got the wig on. You’ve got the muscles. You’ve got the costume. Where’s the lighting?’ Yeah, I’m part of this big thing, but I’m probably pretty replaceable.” He tells the publication that he yearned for more, wanting to work outside of the action movie genre and make films with big names in the industry like Christopher Nolan, Kathryn Bigelow, Greta Gerwig, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg for more dramatic roles. As for a potential Thor 5, Hemsworth says it is currently “unpredictable.” He said, “I don’t want to continue to do it until people are so exhausted that they roll their eyes when they see me come on the screen as that character. If an audience wants to see it, and if there’s something that we believe is exciting and fun, then great. I’ve loved being able to reinvent that character a few times. I don’t have the answer yet, but I would love to try and [figure out] how we can do that again and keep it a little unpredictable.”
