Chris Hemsworth envisions Thor 3 taking Asgard straight to Hell

Oct. 23, 2013by: Alex Maidy

The first THOR showed how the Asgardian prince had to rise above himself to become a hero. THOR: THE DARK WORLD promises to take the character to the next level as he defends Asgard and Earth from the threat of Malekith and the Dark Elves. If star Chris Hemsworth is right, the inevitable trilogy capping next chapter will take everyone straight to Hell.

In an interview for THOR: THE DARK WORLD, Screen Rant reports that Hemsworth has an idea for where the next film will take Thor and the rest of Asgard: a little place called Ragnarok.

“I think what’s good about this is that each time, with the Avengers, we sort of made it difficult to separate them each time there’s some sort of conflict it’s like where’s the rest of the team? And I liked that Thor has another universe or the universe to sort of take care of and keep him occupied. I think that in the comic book the sort of end of days, Armageddon aspect is probably the direction in which it will all head in. Where it’s sort of the end of all things and there’s obviously no script or anything when I read the comic books I thought it was an interesting way to go.”

Much like how IRON MAN 3 took everything built in the prior films and tore it down, THOR 3 should do the same. The hero that Thor has become needs to be challenged to lose everything and everyone he holds dear. While THOR: THE DARK WORLD seems poised to do that, putting Asgard in the way of utter annihilation will take the series to a level never before seen. Just imagine the scope of what that movie could look like.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD may be Alan Taylor's first and last stop in the franchise, I would love to see him bring his visual style to an Armageddon storyline. Until then, we can begin enjoying THOR: THE DARK WORLD when it hits theaters on November 8th.

Extra Tidbit: Hemsworth also said he has not read the screenplay for THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON yet.

as much as I'd like to...

It won't happen because:
A) you need Balder to have Ragnarok.
B) HOW do you do a mystical Armageddon, when you went the Sci-Fi way instead (therefore no Hela) ?

BUT, now that I think about it...
considering how Thor 2 ends, a 'fall of Asgard' storyline might not be out of question...

Yes Yes Yes!!!

Oh please tell me that's what they end up doing with this. I love the concept although there's lots of material to use with Thor and Asgard so awesome as it is it could very well be used for a 4th film or who knows even an Avengers movie.

That would be a great way to cap off the stand-alone trilogy. I picture most of the main heroes, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor stepping back from solo movies and just continuing in Avengers movies once their solo franchises hit 3 movies. And having Thor go through Ragnarok would be the pefect way to cap off the franchise. Also, someone mentioned below that Ragnarok could also make the perfect lead in to the Infinity Gauntlet saga for Avengers 3 in that Thanos uses Ragnarok to get into

So many possibilities for that idea.

People need to stop complaining about the absence of Avengers back-up in the post-Avengers solo films. Of course it doesn't make sense that each superhero is on their own in their own films, but... just let it go.

Good stuff...though if anyone who’s seen the animated Hulk vs Thor movie...that would be a fun way to go before say a Thor 3! I don't know if this was an adaptation of a comic book story itself but it would be great way to give us more Hulk...more Ruffalo's Banner...more Loki...and introduce us to Hela and the concept of Ragnarok...exactly as the animated movie did. I'd also suggest the Hulk vs Wolverine animated movie be adapted too...but oh well.

Jason Voorhees beat Thor to it!

I really like it when actors are invested enough in the comic book characters they're portraying to make statements like this; a good 20 years ago most actors would be embarrassed to be in a comic book movie. We live in exciting times.

That will be an awesome story line. It's funny because I wasn't looking forward at all to Thor when it was announced, but he has become one of my favorite characters to watch.

I'm down with the Ragnarok idea as long as Beta Ray Bill is there to watch.

If there's a sense of Armageddon coming to Asgard I can understand the Avengers not reuniting, but I'm sure Thor will need help from someone other than Loki and his Merry Men/Women.

Thor 2 has not opened yet. However, I just want another Thor movie. So, a third film can do the Ragnarok storyline if film-makers think the plot best. Hemsworth can go out with a bang. Hiddleston's very popular Loki will have to appear one last time. As the article notes, a trilogy can end in a big way. And, Norse myths are supposed to end with Ragnarok.
Sure, I would see this proposed movie. After Ragnarok, the Asgardian gods can return in new bodies--requiring new actors. The comics have had

Sure, I would see this proposed movie. After Ragnarok, the Asgardian gods can return in new bodies--requiring new actors. The comics have had the "deceased" Asgardians return that way before. I am unsure how popular Thunderstrike would be if Marvel uses him. But, the characters could return with a new cast.
