“I have loved every single time I’ve played the character,” Hemsworth said in the clip.
But Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that finding Hemsworth made the character work — and helped launch the multibillion-dollar empire that the MCU would become.
Speaking of the tonal reset that came with the third “Thor” film, director Waititi said he told Hemsworth to bring “more of (himself)” to Thor to make the hero more relatable to his decidedly un-super viewers. That humorous sequel, “Thor: Ragnarok,” earned critical acclaim and approval from audiences.
Thor is also the first Marvel hero to headline four films, not including the “Avengers” series — take that, Captain America and Iron Man!
