Why Chris Hemsworth Nearly Passed Up Playing Thor

The laugh Thor lounge Hulk and Thor are like the Morecambe and Wise of the Marvel franchise

The world created in Thor: Ragnarok feels lived in with a stark contrast being that Asgard is all shiny whilst Sakaar is a world comprised of discarded junk from the universe and the music is wonderful, embracing the 80's and rock classics such as Iron Maiden's The Immigrant Song!

Speaking to the New York Times, Taika - who is married to Chelsea Winstanley - said: "That particular franchise seems really hard".

Chris Hemsworth has revealed that he almost turned down the chance to play Thor in the Marvel film franchise. "There's not much room for someone like me".

The only Star Wars movie I think Taika Waititi might be good at directing is a Boba Fett film. This technique kicked off the MCU as a whole when Jon Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr. helped to establish Tony Stark and the general tone of a Marvel film.

Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins. Taika is amusing. He's great.

"And we were like 'that's a lot of films to sign up for". For a movie like this, I have done movies before where I have improvised and I love to, because it's a big, big epic kind of movie, but those people over in Marvel, they know what they are doing. Taika said we are going to improvise and have fun. But this is Justice League, and even if it doesn't get critical acclaim, I doubt Thor's latest will be able to surpass Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg at the box office.

"They really let his personality shine through and really, he is all over it, because he was such a part of the integral process of us ad-libing, and would throw alternates out".
