17 June – Chris Hemsworth recently admitted to have the same thought with a huge number of Marvel fans about his most famous character Thor prior to "Thor: Ragnarok".

He was a little disappointed by it.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the Australian actor stated that he was bored with the character after filming movie number two, "Thor: The Dark World"; that is before he met New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi.

"I wasn't stoked with what I'd done in Thor 2. You know, I was a little disappointed in what I'd done. I didn't think I grew the character in any way and I didn't think I showed the audience something unexpected and different," he confessed.

Hemsworth said that when Waititi took over helming the third film, the two of them had a deep conversation on which direction to take the Marvel superhero.

"I think the conversation we had was, 'I'm really bored of Thor,' and 'I'm really bored of Thor too!' Then we decided not to be bored and anytime that feeling came into play we'd go into a different direction," he said.

"We just dismantled the character. We wanted him to be more unpredictable. We wanted him to be at a different set of circumstances than he was before and then have the humor come through. I had a great relationship with Taika and we had a great sense of banter and I thought we should cram that into this space."

"Thor: Ragnarok" truly changed the game, with the movie grossing over US$850 million at the global box office.

The two soon collaborated again in the fourth film, "Thor: Love and Thunder", which will open in theatres on 7 July.
