After the success of Thor: Ragnorak, it’s no surprise to hear that its star Chris Hemsworth has been ‘throwing around ideas’ for a fourth films in the franchise with director Taika Waititi.
Waititi was praised heavily for his work on Ragnorak, which saw the God of Thunder lighten up in the funniest Marvel film in its ten-year history but now Hemsowrth, the 34-year-old actor who plays the superhero character in the Marvel series, has revealed he spent his New Year’s discussing the possibility of a fourth movie with Waititi.
‘We gave cheers … a few times … We gave cheers to Thor 3. But it also was like what could we do with four? We could do this and this. We were throwing ideas around,’ he admitte.
‘But also, just to work together again. That was one of the most enjoyable creative partnerships I’ve ever had.’
Aware that a fourth Thor film would need to take into consideration how the next Avengers movie will wrap up, Hemsworth also told USA Today that ‘[Thor 4] is a conversation for further down the road, if it happens’ after the ‘interwoven scenes and stories and characters’ in The Avengers are untangled.
Set entirely in Thor’s mystical world, Ragnorak followed Thor as he had to sop the downfall of one of the nine realms, Asgard, where he himself is from.
Unfortunately, Thor’s evil sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) is suddenly back in town and he’s been cast out (again) to a junkyard planet a million miles away, where he has to fight his way out in order to save his people.
But the story was less important this time around, and instead Waititi made everything ‘fairground-coloured and chunky like a 90s Saturday morning cartoon’.
And as our four-star review admitted, that also ‘pretty much sums up the humour this time around too’.
