Thor star Chris Hemsworth is down to join James Gunn’s next Guardians of the Galaxy movie after Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame concluded with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor handing over the Asgardian throne to Valkyrie and leaving Earth with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Though details about Marvel’s post-Endgame plans are being kept under wraps, Chris Hemsworth recently revealed that he’s open to reprising his role as the God of Thunder in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
While promoting Men in Black: International, Chris Hemsworth spoke with CinemaBlend about the possibility of starring in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Here’s what Thor actor told the site:
“I’d play that character again. I love it so much – especially if there’s something unique to do again with it. I felt like the last three films were very, very different each time. It really felt like a totally different character. And I don’t even know when or if they’re shooting [Guardians of the Galaxy 3]. After the Avengers press tour I kind of went and buried my head in the sand.”
When the interviewer called the team the “Asgardians Of The Galaxy,” as Thor also does in Endgame, Hemsworth added:
“I’ll work with any of those guys. Asgardians Of The Galaxy. That’s actually great. You might’ve just got me my next job. Thank you, man.”
While production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was scheduled to begin early this year, the project was put on hold following the decision to remove Gunn as the director of the final chapter in the trilogy. Now, James Gunn will begin production on the third Guardians of the Galaxy film after completing work on The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. and DC.
The Guardians were last seen in Avengers: Endgame. Details on the next chapter of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy series are currently unknown, though the film will likely explore the ramifications of the universe-changing events in Endgame.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.
