Months ago, Chris Hemsworth quipped that he and his fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe stars weren’t allowed to show up in DC movies – even though some of the supporting actors of the setting have already done so. While some have been confused by his remark and weren’t sure if he really meant that there’s something in Marvel’s contracts preventing the Distinguished Competition from having some of their movie talent, he’s clarified that he was only kidding around while promoting Thor: Ragnarok.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Hemsworth made a quick joke that he’s up for a DC role:
“I have a Riddler audition after this, so…”
When pressing for details, Kimmel asked about the specifics and wanted to make sure that he was only kidding. Hemsworth cleared things up by adding that his involvement with a DC movie…
“Depends on the cost, the payment. If it’s eight dollars an hour, sure.”
So from the sound of things, there’s no silly rule stating that an actor can’t appear in more than one shared movie universe at a given time. Granted, Hemsworth is probably pretty happy at Marvel – but there’s nothing saying that he couldn’t have a supporting role in DC’s world as a lesser-known character.
The full interview can be watched below:
Thor: Ragnarok collides on November 3, 2017 with a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Mark Ruffalo as Doctor Bruce Banner (The Hulk), Tesssa Thompson as Valkyrie, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin Borson, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange, Karl Urban as Skurge, Jeff Goldblum as En Dwi Gast (The Grandmaster), Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Clancy Brown as Sutur.
5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.
The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”
And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.
Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
