Marvel’s Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has revealed he’s not sure whether he will return to the MCU again following his recent appearance in Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder marked Chris Hemsworth’s fourth solo outing as the God of Thunder and eighth overall appearance in the MCU, counting his appearances in the Avengers series. However, Hemsworth isn’t sure if he’ll be coming back to Marvel again.
The Thor actor recently revealed that he is unsure about his Marvel future and is aware Love and Thunder could well be his final MCU outing.

Chris Hemsworth spoke about his potential MCU future in the behind-the-scenes special Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Thor: Love and Thunder on Disney Plus.
Hemsworth touched upon the possibility of Love and Thunder becoming his final Thor film while speaking about the making of the movie. The actor revealed he approached shooting with an awareness that the film could be his Marvel swan song.
Chris Hemsworth said of Thor: Love and Thunder:
“I have loved every single time I’ve played the character. This is ten years for most of us now, and maybe the last time I play the character. I certainly was aware of that while shooting.”
He later touched upon the opportunity to round out his Marvel experience in his home country of Australia:
“This has been an incredible shoot. If this was the last one, this is incredibly fitting to finish here in Australia. It really is so, so special to be able to do this at all.”
Thor: Love and Thunder certainly leaves the door open to more appearances from the Asgardian Avengers in future, but could also serve as a fitting final chapter in his MCU story. If Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is brought back for another Marvel appearance, the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars, expected to be another huge crossover event, could be a fitting place for his return.
Here is the synopsis for Thor: Love and Thunder:
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, the Thor sequel stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
