Chris Hemsworth says he's contracted for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & 2

Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 Chris Hemsworth

Collider got a nice little scoop while speaking with Chris Hemsworth at the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON junket. The site wanted to know how many movies Hemsworth has left on his Marvel contract, and the actor said three, with one of them being THOR: RAGNAROK. The other two? AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART I and PART II.

I’m three films away from [the end of my contract]; I’ve got Avengers 3 and 4 and I’ve got Thor 3.

This comes as a bit of a surprise since it's been rumored/speculated that AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART I will focus on the newer Avengers members like Black Panther and Doctor Strange, with the old guard returning for the sequel. Hemsworth's comments also seem to confirm that he will not appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

But things could always change. Marvel may decide Thor doesn't need to be in the third Avengers flick, and add him to a different movie. How do you think Marvel will use the God of Thunder in their upcoming films?

Chris Hemsworth will be back as Thor in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON on May 1, 2015, and THOR: RAGNAROK is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2017. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART I will be in theaters on May 4, 2018, while AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART II opens on May 3, 2019.

I think it's important to keep in mind that being an Avenger and being in an Avengers movie are two different things.

The Thor movies for the most part have been really good. I know the first movie has it's shortcomings, but overall it worked as a great introduction to the character and bringing him into the MCU in a logical way. Dark World was a vast improvement over the first movie and frankly Hemsworth killed it as the character in Avengers. I'm excited to see how his character progresses in AoU, much of the speculation hints that he's taken out of the action as something directly sets up the premise for

I'm excited to see how his character progresses in AoU, much of the speculation hints that he's taken out of the action as something directly sets up the premise for Ragnarok. Which makes me even more interested to see how Ragnarok plays out.

It doesn't seem that far fetched that he would appear in both Infinity War films. Part 1 is said to have the new Avengers featured as the main characters. It doesn't seem odd that Thor might show up in a limited capacity before taking centre stage in Part 2. My theory is that Ragnarok deals with Thanos showing up at Asgard to take the Infinity Gauntlet and the remaining Infinity Stones. Asgard is presumably left in ruins and then Part 1 opens up with Thor coming to Earth to warn the Avengers of what's happened. That's just my theory though since Thor is the one character of the Avengers that easily connects to the more cosmic characters like GOTG and Thanos, etc.

Also, I'm interested to see what happens after Hemsworth's contract is up. Does he sign on for more films, it's not like he's lighting the box office on fire outside of the Marvel films. Or does he decided to make a break for it and attempt headlining some more regular movies instead?

And if he decides not to return to Marvel, what do they do with the Thor franchise? It's not one of their biggest earners at the box office and they have a lot of new characters debuting with solo films to

And if he decides not to return to Marvel, what do they do with the Thor franchise? It's not one of their biggest earners at the box office and they have a lot of new characters debuting with solo films to fill in the gaps. Or do they follow the comics and have Thor become female and take the franchise in that direction?

I thought The Dark World was a huge improvement over its predecessor. Excited to see where they go with Ragnarok and how they'll wrap up his arc by the end of Infinity War Part 2. Thor definitely became a much more likeable character after The Dark World.

Contracted is not guaranteed. Hugo Weaving signed a 6-movie deal. They just like having the options to use the characters. This doesn't mean anything, but it seems likely he'd be in at least one of the Avengers.

Do we know if any of the original members are locked in for movies going beyond phase 3? For example, say Hemsworth said he still had 5 more movies to do (that could just mean they are movies all in phase 3...but that kind of number might suggest movies further down the road). Also, do these include 'cameos' in other movies or does it have to be a 'significant' role to count?

But Hemsworth stated he has three movies left on his contract, so that brings him to the end of Phase 3. According to his comment that he has Ragnarok, Infinity Wars Part 1 & 2. From what I know, none of the top characters from Avengers have contracts beyond Phase 3 (i.e. Chris Evans, RDJ, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, etc.) It's really unclear where they'll be taking the MCU after Phase 3.

Perhaps a reboot of sorts? I mean, will RDJ still be involved at that point - whether it be his age or wage demands, his time will come to an end. Most of the other actors will still be young enough to continue if they wanted to...but I would suspect most might want to move on to new challenges. it will be very interesting to see where it all goes from there. The comics are forever reimaging/rebooting their characters and the animated shows do it too (how many different Batman series have

The comics are forever reimaging/rebooting their characters and the animated shows do it too (how many different Batman series have we had now? Not to mention the Marvel f'd up reboot of the Avengers series) - how would such an approach work in the live action world? Going by the Spider-man reboot...not very well. Could you imagine if they started remaking the Harry Potter movies again?

Awesome he is phenomenal as Thor, I can't wait for Ragnarok.

I just hope Thor: Ragnarok ups the ante a bit for Thor consdering the Dark World was a little underwhelming (even though it is entertaining). I still feel like Marvel hasn't fully realized his potential and power to full extreme yet on screen. Hopefully Ragnarok shows that this around (at least in the solo films; Whedon did a great job with him in the first Avengers film).
