Actor Chris Hemsworth has said that if given an opportunity, he would love to keep on playing superhero Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The 34-year-old actor will be next seen in Avengers: Infinity War, alongside other MCU veterans, such as Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner.

Avengers 4 will mark the final outing for Hemsworth as Thor.

“If I had the opportunity to do it again, I think I’d love to. 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 broke the mould a bit,” Hemsworth told IGN.

“I’ve just, literally two days ago, finished Avengers 4 and that’s my contract — my pre-existing contract is done now, so it’s kind of like ‘wow, that’s it’,” he added.

Hemsworth, who last appeared in the Taika Waititi- directed Thor: Ragnarok”, said he has rediscovered his passion for the role.

“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. And after this last experience with Taika, and actually these last two ‘Avengers’, I feel like we’ve reinvented that character a number of times — even in these next two, he evolves again, and you don’t get that opportunity often in a franchise.

“So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think,” Hemsworth said.
