Marvel's god of thunder is looking forward to interacting with Marvel's merry mutants.
Chris Hemsworth plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is very excited to welcome the X-Men into the fold, as he tells CinemaBlend. He also notes that he may have exited the Marvel Cinematic Universe by the time the X-Men debut.
"Oh, [it's] awesome," Hemsworth said. "And I hope they get to do it because contractually a lot of us have now kind of done our run. But to interact... and I've said that a while ago about, 'Imagine interacting with Wolverine or all the different characters from X-Men'... [Deadpool and Thor] would be pretty cool. The most exciting thing about Avengers was just being on set as Thor with the Guardians, or... I was as much a fan to see that kick off as anyone else."
For a lot of fans, seeing various Marvel characters interact is a major draw of the MCU. It seems that its a big part of the fun for stars like Hemsworth as well. Adding the X-Men into the mix could turn that fun up to a new level.
Some may be having trouble imagining the X-Men and Thor interacting. Rest assured that there is a long history of mutants getting involved in the matter of Asgard. "The Asgardian Wars" is a classic involving the X-Men, the New Mutants, and Asgard. The story turned Mirage into a Valkyrie and gave Storm the power of Thor. Seeing Storm and the God of Thunder on screen would definitely be something.
The producers of the X-Men movies seem to share Hemsworth's sentiment, while Hemsworth wouldn't mind extending his role in the MCU.
Meanwhile, the current MCU stars will come together in Avengers: Infinity War.
