The Wonder Woman love just keeps pouring in. During an interview with MTV at San Diego Comic-Con, Chris Hemsworth (Thor himself) was discussing his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and where he ranks among Hollywood’s Chris’ when the conversation quickly shifted toward the DCEU summer hit.
Though the more pressing news is Hemsworth’s future as Thor, the God of Thunder won’t be giving spoilers away any time soon, only indicating that he “kinda” knows when Thor’s run is set to be over before basically joking that he’ll do another one if Thor: Ragnarok is enough of a success.
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman will be crowned the biggest hit of the summer after reeling in $389 million domestically, bringing the worldwide total to $780 million. It’s safe to say Hemsworth isn’t the only fan, but it sounds like he’s a big one.
“I have such love and admiration for all Chris’ on the planet — and all superheroes, including Wonder Woman.” He said. “I think it’s my favorite film this year. They did such a good job. We’re gonna make more, but it’s OK. It’s not a competition, it’s all love.”
It’s all love? Sounds like someone steers clear of internet comment sections. It’s always nice though when someone part of the MCU, DCEU or even Fox reaffirms that’s it’s all a friendly competition at the end of the day, with no particular studio wishing another fails on a superhero film.
As for Thor: Ragnarok, the next installation in the MCU hits screens on Nov. 3. You can read the synopsis below:
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Sam Neill in an undisclosed role.

While the previous DC Extended Universe films have had little critical success, Wonder Woman was released to big box office and high critical reception.
