MCU Star Chris Hemwsworth Slams The Hammer On ‘Thor: Dark World’

It is no secret that ‘Thor: Dark World’ had a tepid response from critics and audiences when it premiered. While the interaction between Thor and his half-brother Loki was praised by fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the movie was criticized for various plotholes and some editing mistakes when it reached theaters.
Thor actor Chris Hemsworth himself does not seem to look back on the film with fond memories, according to a Digital Spy article. “I wasn’t stoked with what I’d done in Thor 2,” he said in an interview.
“I was a little disappointed in what I’d done, I didn’t think I grew the character in any way,” Hemsworth told Vanity Fair. “I didn’t think I’d shown an audience something unexpected and different.”
The 2013 sequel to 2011 ‘Thor’ was the eighth film in the MCU. Despite the poor reception, it made over $600 million against a $170 million budget. It also starred Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and ‘Dr. Who’ actor Christopher Eccleston as the villain Malekith.
The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ star may not have looked back on the second Thor outing, but it was not the same with the third movie ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’
“And when Ragnarok came along, out of my own frustration over what I’d done – and this is not on any other director or anyone, this was my own performance – I really wanted to break the mold,” he said. “And I said this to [director] Taika [Waititi]. I think the conversation we had was, I said, ‘I’m really bored of Thor’. And he said, ‘Yeah, I’m really bored of Thor too’,” Hemsworth went on to recall. “And then we decided not to be bored. And any time that feeling came into play, we’d go in a different direction.”
Chris Hemsworth is set to reprise the role in the upcoming film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’
