Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth, out doing the first press rounds for the Afghan war tale “12 Strong,” has confirmed he’s finished filming on the fourth “Avengers”. With that complete, he’s now come to the end of his contract with Marvel Studios which leaves his future with the character in question.
Now, speaking with IGN, he says he’s definitely more interested now in continuing on in the role than he was a year or two ago, mostly due to the character development that ‘Ragnarok’ and both ‘Infinity War’ films gave him:
“I’ve just, literally two days ago, finished Avengers 4 and that’s my contract — my preexisting contract is done now, so it’s kind of like, ‘wow, that’s it,’. Two or three films ago I was like, ‘okay, a couple more.’ I was enjoying it but I was like… I felt a little restricted.
And after this last experience with Taika, and actually these last two Avengers, I feel like we’ve reinvented the character a number of times — even in these next two, he evolves again, and you don’t get that opportunity often in a franchise. So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think.
I also think there’s an appetite for it now, or there’s a far greater range of possibilities of where he can go now, what he can do, just because we’ve kind of broken the mold a bit.”
Fans still have both “Avengers” coming up with Hemsworth in the role which he’ll occupy through to at least May next year.
