Chris Hemsworth offers brief updates on Thor 3, Infinity War & Star Trek 4

Chris Hemsworth Thor: Ragnarok Avengers: Infinity War Star Trek 4

The 74th Golden Globe Awards took place yesterday (check out a full list of the winners right here) and, as usual, there were plenty of opportunities for frustratingly brief interviews with all the stars on the red-carpet. It was there that MTV caught up with Chris Hemsworth and were able to ask him about several of his upcoming projects, including THOR: RAGNAROK, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR and STAR TREK 4.

Principal photography on THOR: RAGNAROK wrapped up late last year and Chris Hemsworth has never been shy about giving plenty of praise to director Taika Waititi. Hemsworth told MTV that "it was one of the best experiences I've had, he's incredible. If you've seen any of his films, they give you an indication of the tone of what this is going to be, which is very different to what we've seen before." As someone who found the previous two THOR flicks to be a little lackluster, I'm pleased that Waititi was able to shake things up a bit and give us something different. Marvel also recently released the official synopsis for THOR: RAGNAROK, so make sure to check that out if you haven't already.

When asked about AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, which is due to kick off production fairly soon, Hemsworth admitted that he's yet to have seen a script for the film, which he says is "a little nerve-racking a couple weeks out, isn't it? But this is the way Marvel does it." AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR and its currently untitled sequel are expected to film back-to-back and will almost certainly be the biggest project Marvel has tackled to date, both in terms of story as well as the sheer amount of talent involved, so it's no surprise that they're doing their best to keep things under wraps, even from their actors.

Before Chris Hemsworth was the God of Thunder, he was George Kirk, father to James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and briefly Captain of the U.S.S. Kelvin in J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK. Despite only being on screen for minutes and meeting his end soon after, Hemsworth's character struck a chord with fans and Abrams announced last year that Chris Hemsworth will (somehow) be returning for STAR TREK 4. The rebooted franchise's fourth film will see Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk crossing paths with "a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father." Hemsworth couldn't say exactly how his character would be returning, but said that he's "spoken to J.J. [Abrams], and he has an amazing pitch on the whole thing."

THOR: RAGNAROK is due to hit theaters on November 3, 2017 with AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR following on May 4, 2018. STAR TREK 4 unfortunately doesn't have a release date just yet.

I'm worried about the director being too silly for Thor and Hulk...

My only worry is the guy is used to SMALL movies that use like a 60 page script for a 90 minute movie, relying on adlibs to fill in the dialogue. I wasn't a fan of most of his movies either, Hunt for Wilderpeople and What We Do In The Shadows just weren't funny at all. He tries to be Christopher Guest with most of his films, doing the whole mockumentary/off the cuff scripting style but it just falls flat..

To have no experience with big budget action films and Chirs Hemsworth saying this is

To have no experience with big budget action films and Chirs Hemsworth saying this is going to be funny and more humerus than the past movies make me cringe a little. But I trust Marvel, they have picked odd directors before and its worked out.

Red because they should have seen the script by now

I have faith in Marvel & the Russos but it makes me nervous that the core cast still has not seen the Infinity War script. Between Hemsworth's quote here and Saldana's as reported yesterday, there seems to be a slight sentiment of frustration that they don't know how to prepare for their roles yet (mentally, emotionally).

Civil War characters were added in so fast that Paul Rudd and the new Spidey only got like 2-3 weeks with the script before they were filming. This isn't the first time these actors have played the characters, I am pretty sure they know when the filming start date is and already have training schedules to stay in shape. They will get the script probably a year before the movie is set to release. You realize it isn't coming out for another 16 months, right? They are filming over 7-8 months

They are filming over 7-8 months (being generous) and giving themselves 8 months to edit and market. It is waaaay too soon to get the script. I just think they are anxious to know if they live/die or get to meet and play with new heroes. They are geeking out themselves, so just chill out.

Yea I said mentally & emotionally so your "stay in shape" argument kinda dies right there. And yes they've played them before, but they're not re living whatever they went through before. They're playing these characters under new circumstances and a new storyline. As for Spidey & Ant-Man in Civil War, they didn't really have full on character arcs in that film, so that was ok in their case. But what we're talking about here is core characters, large roles that will (or should) have arcs. It's

Doesn't matter if they're filming over 7 - 8 months. In a few weeks, there will be a "day one" of them being on camera, and they need to know how to prep for whatever scene(s) they'll be filming. So yes they are geeking out but they take it seriously too: RDJ was submitted for Oscar consideration for his portrayal of Tony in CW. This is fun stuff yes but also, for some, serious shit.

Im guessing via some sort of time/space continuum plot device. maybe he is sucked into some sort of wormhole and survives colliding with Nero's ship. Or maybe Jame T Kirk is sent back in time or something.

Whatever the plot, its going to be the typical "going back in time to change something is what caused the problem in the first place" twist. Because thats the only time travel plot hollywood can seem to come up with these days.

Surely if they were going to bring in Picard, Tom Hardy would be first on the list.

Maybe back in the day when Tom Hardy was a scrawny little no body. But now that he's all jacked up, it would look weird, lol.

Tom Hardy has already been in a Star Trek movie. He was on Star Trek Nemesis as the main villain.

Currently reading the Star Trek Prey trilogy, now that's what I'd love to see happen. The Original and Next Generation crews. Patrick Stewart always said he go back to Picard, and there's the opportunity. The story is even set several years after the events of Nemesis, which would explain the actors' aging.

you know what they should do for Star Trek 4? Kirk and crew go through a black hole and timejump into the future. they battle the Borg Army with the help of a young Jean-Luc Picard (played by James McAvoy).

He also thought Ghostbusters was a good idea too, so.......

But I'm a fan of the guy and he does a great job as Thor every couple of years, but the guy just needs to pick better projects outside of the Marvel films; even though I think Heart of the Sea and Rush are both underrated. Glad to see him coming back to Star Trek as well since his character's legacy, but not presence has played a huge role and has had a huge impact in the first three films.
