Chris Hemsworth has revealed he had one condition when it came to starring in Thor: Love and Thunder in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
Before agreeing to reprise his role as Thor for the eighth time following three Thor and four Avengers films, the Australian actor said he was considering turning down the role. If it hadn’t been for Thor: Ragnarok director (and Korg actor) Taika Waititi’s decision to return to the franchise, Hemsworth said, “I don’t know that I would’ve done another if Taika hadn’t said yes, he was going to do it. He had written this beautiful script which was a wacky, crazy, romantic comedy set in space and that I hadn’t seen before.”
Hemsworth can currently be seen in the Netflix film Spiderhead, which is directed by Top Gun: Maverick’s Joseph Kosinski.
