In a new interview with GQ Magazine, the 35-year-old actor, Chris Hemsworth, described the second film in the Thor series as just “meh.” According to Hemsworth, “the first Thor is good, the second is meh.”
In his view, the “classic archetype” of masculinity became a bit overplayed and dried out, and it all started to become “very familiar.” Chris added that he was aware they were “right on the edge” with the character.
However, it appears as though he’s being too hard on himself, considering the second installment of the movie still did well both at the box office as well as with the critics.
The 2013 movie has a 66% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but the original had a 77% rating. 2017’s Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok, had a whopping 92% rating, making it the most critically acclaimed installment.
These days, Chris is on top of the world, and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are thrilled to see what has happened after the climax of Avengers: Infinity War.
According to a report, the next Avengers movie is coming out in May of 2019, and in Chris’ view, it’s going to be even more exciting than the first movie. During a chat with the magazine, Esquire, the actor admitted that he was completely blown away by the script for the upcoming production.
In fact, he was incredibly impressed with how directors were able to link all of the different subplots for the sake of making it possibly one of the greatest crossover flicks in a while.
Hemsworth explained that the next Avengers movie will do more than the last. “I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely,” the actor remarked. And we’re hoping that’s the case, because thus far, the Avengers series has to be one of the greatest comic-book cross-overs of all time.
