Chris Hemsworth Almost (Gasp!) Passed On Playing Thor

This technique kicked off the MCU as a whole when Jon Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr. helped to establish Tony Stark and the general tone of a Marvel film.

Last week, Goldblum revealed Waititi asked the "Jurassic Park" actor to improvise many of his scenes in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

IGN's been covering news on Thor: Ragnarok and a lot of its subscribers have been actively commenting on its posts. Still, with critics raving about the new Thor movie and it taking the franchise in an entirely different direction he could certainly be correct in his assessment. After watching Waititi for a couple of minutes, it's easy to see where Thor: Ragnarok's anarchic humour comes from. Would he be willing to tell a story in a Galaxy Far, Far Away?

"They really let his personality shine through and really, he is all over it, because he was such a part of the integral process of us ad-libing, and would throw alternates out".

The Australian actor, whose most notable role before Thor was as Kim Hyde in Home And Away, explained that his doubts were due to "that voice inside you thinking it's too good to be true". Thor, however, is said to be more like Chris Hemsworth than any other iteration of the character. This is most obvious with Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster, which shares numerous actor's singular traits.

The synopsis of the film reads: "Thor's world is about to explode in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. So I think it's important that on all fronts we keep pushing for diversification because then the storytelling becomes more interesting, more rich, and more truthful".

I can't say I fully agree with him. Hopefully it gets made in the near future as the character is still very popular.
