Chris Hemsworth Thinks Thor: Ragnarok Needs Unexpected Kind Of Humor


While promoting his latest film, In the Heart of the Sea, Chris Hemsworth shared his thoughts on what the third installment of Marvel’s Thor franchise needs to include that may have been lacking in its previous outing.

Hemsworth, who plays the titular god of thunder, tells Cinemablend that Thor: Ragnarok should look to Guardians of the Galaxy for inspiration.

I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?

Hemsworth expounded on this sentiment, saying he believes some of the humor that was present in the original Thor may have been lost in the sequel, Thor: The Dark World.


I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, 'Ok, cool. Let’s try something different,' and Taika just had such a brilliant sort of take and funny kind of ideas about where we could [go], how we could do that.
