In an interview with Total Film for its July 2022 issue, Chris Hemsworth hinted that he still has more to give regarding the character.

"Each time, if the opportunity comes up and presents itself, I'm just open to whatever creative exploration can happen, thanks to different writers and directors and so on," Chris told the outlet.

"But I love playing the character, I really do," the Aussie actor continued. "It always comes down to: 'Is this script different to the last one? Are we repeating something?' And when it becomes too familiar, I think that's when I'd have to say, 'Yeah, no, this doesn't...' I'd like to exit before people tell me to exit."

Thor: Love and Thunder arrives on Disney Plus on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022.
