Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder wasn’t nearly as well-received as its predecessor (by fans or critics), the beloved Thor: Ragnarok, and now the film’s star is echoing what many have said since it hit theaters last summer.
Speaking with GQ, Chris Hemsworth talked a bit about what he feels went wrong with Love and Thunder, a superhero sequel that, by nearly every count, could have been great.
“I think we just had too much fun. It just became too silly,” Hemsworth said. He’s portrayed Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the character’s introduction in his 2011 solo film. Last November, Hemsworth announced he would be taking a more “curated approach” to acting after he discovered he is genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s.
“It’s always hard being in the centre of it and having any real perspective… I love the process, it’s always a ride. But you just don’t know how people are going to respond,” Hemsworth went on.
Critics were lukewarm toward Love and Thunder. The film’s Rotten Tomatoes score is one of the lowest in the MCU, and its 77% audience score is below the norm as well.
IGN’s Tom Jorgensen awarded Thor: Love and Thunder a 7/10, saying it is “held back by a cookie-cutter plot and a mishandling of supporting characters, but succeeds as the MCU’s first romantic comedy thanks to Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman’s chemistry.”
