Thor: Love and Thunder star Chris Hemsworth takes to Instagram to thank fans for supporting Thor’s journey through the MCU over the past decade.
With Thor: Love and Thunder now just around the corner, Chris Hemsworth takes to Instagram to thank fans for supporting Thor’s MCU journey over the past decade. Set to finally hit theaters next week, Thor: Love and Thunder will see Hemsworth return for his fourth standalone appearance as the God of Thunder. The beloved hero is one of the MCU’s longer-established characters, having first made his debut in 2011’s Thor. After receiving a warm introduction from audiences, Hemsworth would return for the 2013 sequel Thor: Dark World before a total redirection from director Taika Waititi introduced a whole new side of the character in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Now, with Hemsworth and Waititi set to reunite once again in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, audiences are gearing up for another colorful, whimsical adventure as Marvel continues to explore Thor’s character, with teasers for the film having glimpsed the hero encountering somewhat of a mid-life crisis throughout the events of the film. Thor: Love and Thunder will see Tessa Thompson return as King Valkyrie while Waititi will also reprise his on-screen role as Korg. Alongside them, Natalie Portman will return as Jane Foster under the new alias, the Mighty Thor, with the group set to take on Christian Bale’s terrifying Gorr the God butcher, who seeks to destroy every God in the universe.
In a recent Instagram, Hemsworth has taken time to thank fans for their unwavering support for Thor over the past decade, sharing a sweet video that serves as a small behind-the-scenes glance at Thor: Love and Thunder accompanied by a handful of retrospective looks at the character. Hemsworth shared that he is both “humbled and grateful” for those who have “shown [him] that Thor is still worthy” after all these years. The actor was immediately met with an outpouring of love, with many also sharing their excitement for this upcoming Thor installment. Check out Hemsworth’s sweet post below.
Many have felt that teases for Thor: Love and Thunder appear to be setting the film up as Thor’s final adventure within the MCU, however, the future of Hemsworth’s Thor remains largely unknown at this stage. So far, Thor: Love and Thunder‘s promotional run has yielded a variety of teases from both the star himself and Waititi, with the director revealing that there are a number of Thor stories that he would like to explore in the future, while Hemsworth has expressed that he is keen to see how audiences feel after the events of Thor: Love and Thunder. One thing is for certain, however, as the pair recently shared that, going forward, they would only want to make another Thor film if they can do it together.
For audiences, Hemsworth’s passion for not only his character, but the Thor films as a whole has always been abundantly clear, and this post only highlights his gratitude for those who have echoed those sentiments. While the events of Thor: Love and Thunder will remain under wraps until the film’s official release, it’s certainly heartwarming to see Hemsworth’s pride in how his character has developed into a much more approachable and lovable hero over the past decade. For now, there isn’t long to go until audiences learn where Thor’s MCU journey will take him next when Thor: Love and Thunder finally lands in theaters.
