Following ten long years, the expansive cast attached with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has started to grow a bit weary of their costumes. The desire to move on to other roles is understandable, especially when knowing that several actors have also reached the end of their contracts. While Chris Hemsworth (Thor) had already noted that he has fulfilled his obligation as the thunder god and will not be playing the character again, it turns out that he still has a wish to stay around for the future.
Taking to Instagram earlier today, the actor thanked fans worldwide for supporting Avengers: Infinity War by taking to theaters in the past few weeks.
“It was the biggest superhero film opening ever,” said Hemsworth. “The film continues to smash records left right and center and, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s all thanks to you guys.”
However, the actor did not just end there. While mentioning how the highly anticipated installment has been smashing the box office left and right, he teased that “they” will continue to return in new installments if fans continue to fuel the characters with their support.
“Thank you so much, everyone who continues to support these characters and the Marvel Universe,” added Hemsworth. “We’re going to keep trying to crank them out for you, if you let us.”
Hemsworth was previously thought to be wearing his Asgardian armor for the last time in the untitled sequel, presently dubbed Avengers 4. He is not the only rumored to be parting ways with the MCU. Both Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) are also thought to be leaving behind their superhero legacies once phase three concludes next year.
However, will Marvel Studios be letting their superheroes go that easily? Some actors are irreplaceable and you cannot expect a new face to be attached with the same costume without getting some heat from fans.
