"I’ve just, literally two days ago, finished Avengers 4 and that’s my contract — my preexisting contract is done now, so it’s kind of like, 'wow, that’s it,'" Hemsworth told IGN.
"Two or three films ago I was like, 'okay, a couple more.' I was enjoying it but I was like... I felt a little restricted," Hemsworth explained.
"And after this last experience with Taika [Waititi, director of Ragnarok], and actually these last two Avengers, I feel like we’ve reinvented the character a number of times — even in these next two, he evolves again, and you don’t get that opportunity often in a franchise," Hemsworth said.
"So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think."
"If I had the opportunity to do it again, I think I’d love to," he said.
"I also think there’s an appetite for it now, or there’s a far greater range of possibilities of where he can go now, what he can do, just because we’ve kind of broken the mold a bit."
Ragnarok drastically reinvented both Thor the character and his eponymous franchise: a calculated move by Hemsworth and franchise newcomer Waititi, the pair wanting to inject more "fun" into the oft-Shakespearean series.
Hemsworth next appears in Avengers: Infinity War, in theaters May 4, before reprising the role again in 2019's currently untitled Avengers 4, Hemsworth's eighth outing as the god of thunder.
