Chris Hemsworth Admits ‘Thor 4’ Was ‘Too Silly’

"I think we had a little too much fun." "It just got too silly," Hemsworth said of the film.

Chris Hemsworth, the actor who plays Thor, is aware of the backlash surrounding his fourth “Thor” film, and he even stated in a new GQ magazine feature that “Love and Thunder” was “too silly” for its benefit.

Marvel’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” was a box office success, grossing $760 million worldwide, but writer-director Taika Waititi’s goofy humor and the film’s unattractive visual effects turned off many Marvel fans.

“I think we had a little too much fun.” “It just got too silly,” Hemsworth said of the film.

“It’s always difficult to be in the middle of it and have any genuine perspective…I enjoy the process since it is always exciting. But you really don’t know how people will react.”

Hemsworth claimed that his son’s friends were his worst critics. “A bunch of eight-year-olds are criticizing my film.” ‘We thought this one had too much humor, the action was cool, but the visual effects weren’t as excellent,’ he remarked. “I cringe and laugh at the same time.”

Hemsworth has appeared in eight Marvel films, and just because “Thor: Love and Thunder” was “too silly,” that doesn’t mean he won’t do more.

The actor is not currently engaged in any other Marvel films. He truly wants to do “some other stuff for a while,” but he’ll return if the chance is creatively rich.

“I love the experience,” stated Hemsworth. “I like how I’ve been able to do something a little different throughout the process.”

‘Thor 1’ and ‘Thor 2’ were their own thing, whereas ‘Thor 3’ and ‘Thor 4’ had a very distinct vibe…and then ‘Avengers,’ the Lebowski Thor, the ‘Infinity War’ Thor, due to various filmmakers and, I believe, primarily my desire to do something different.”

Marvel has had a difficult track record recently. While “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was a big office success and got Angela Bassett an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress,

“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” had some of the worst reviews in the MCU and flopped at the box office at $476 million.

That figure is especially troubling given that “Quantumania” marked the start of the MCU’s next phase and the introduction of its Thanos-sized new adversary, Kang the Conqueror.

According to Hemsworth, “Wakanda Forever” is “really cool.” He didn’t see “Quantumania,” but he heard enough about it to wonder why Marvel turned the very little “Ant-Man” franchise into a massive space epic.

“That’s the trick: you have to separate all those stories,” says the author. According to Hemsworth “It’s like, ‘Your world is in danger, the entire universe!'” ‘Yeah, so that was the last 24 films.’ It needs to be more intimate and grounded.”

Hemsworth also addressed Marvel’s detractors, including Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Scorsese has criticized Marvel for severely influencing exhibitions, while Tarantino stated in November that Marvel is incapable of producing movie stars.

“Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is…you have all these famous actors playing these characters,” Tarantino stated on the podcast “2 Bears, 1 Cave.” “However, they are not movie stars.” Right? Captain America is the main character.

Alternatively, Thor is the main character. I mean, I’m hardly the first person to say something like that. That’s probably been stated a million times…But, you know, it’s these franchise characters that become stars.”

“That’s super depressing when I hear that,” Hemsworth said of Tarantino and Scorsese. “There go two of my heroes with whom I will not collaborate.” I guess they don’t like me.”

Hemsworth continued, “I’m glad that I was a part of something that kept people in theatres, seeing the glass as half-full. Whether their films harmed other films is something I’m not sure of.

Since business and this area of the arts are already so fragile, I dislike it when we begin to judge one another. I say it less about the directors who made those remarks, all of whom are still my heroes and with whom I would collaborate in a heartbeat.

However, I speak more to the consensus on that subject. We’re trying, but I don’t think any of us know the solution.

Hemsworth’s upcoming Netflix release, “Extraction 2,” will be available on June 16.
