THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Star Chris Hemsworth Joins An Exclusive Club Of MCU Actors With The Movie
Thor: Love and Thunder will introduce a second God of Thunder, but Chris Hemsworth remains the franchise's lead. However, the actor has another role in the Thor: Ragnarok sequel! Read on for details...
The new Thor: Love and Thunder poster is definitely one of Marvel Studios' better efforts, and it only serves to get us more excited for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok follow-up. A closer look at the credits listed at the bottom has confirmed rumours that Jaimie Alexander will return as Sif, but Chris Hemsworth getting a second mention has put him in a unique club of MCU actors.
It turns out that the Aussie hunk will be credited as one of Thor: Love and Thunder's executive producers. As of right now, Scarlett Johansson is the first and only other actor to have served in that role as well as starring in her own movie, 2021's Black Widow.
On Disney+, Tom Hiddleston was an executive producer on Loki, while Oscar Isaac received the same credit for Moon Knight earlier this year. Whether this will become a regular occurrence moving forward is hard to say, but it suggests these actors are keen to have a greater level of input into how their respective characters are portrayed on screen.
