When “Thor 3” hits cinemas, Chris Hemsworth would undoubtedly become a bigger star than he already is now. However, it appears the Australian actor might be tired of the mythical superhero.
Hemsworth’s revelation in an interview with the Daily Telegraph could be the end of his days as the Norse god.
“It’s exhausting, physically and emotionally, trying to ground the bigger films, the fantastic worlds,” Hemsworth revealed.
His statement does not mean his disdain for big roles like in “Thor 3”. However, the actor does yearn for a role that’s more contemporary, real, and simple. He hopes to go beyond the image of Thor and explore other roles.
The website noted how his co-star Charlize Theron earned an Oscars nod for the 2003 drama “Monster”.
“The plan was to do something like that. I just couldn’t find the right thing,’’ Hemsworth said.
“I definitely I have a yearning for something contemporary and real and simpler. That would be the focus,” he added.
“Rush” is one movie under his belt for which he received enthusiastic reviews. “Blackhat” and “In the Heart of the Sea” did not deliver the desired results.
Given Hemsworth’s decision to downsize, does it mean he’s willing to seize any opportunity that comes his way? To date, his supporting role in “Ghostbusters” is “hotly-anticipated” News.com.au reported.
His transformation as Kevin the receptionist is the “perfect mix of adorkable and sexy”.
For his other upcoming flick “The Huntsman: Winter War”, Hemsworth revealed he was drawn to the spinoff because of the cast.
“I didn’t want to be alone to carry the thing. And to be honest, I far more enjoy the ensemble set up, where you are pushed by one another in the best possible way,” he said.
Production for “Thor 3” starts in June on the Gold Coast. To date, Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky have already relocated to Australia. The actor clarified the move was for the benefit of their kids.
