Chris Hemsworth And Kevin Feige Talk THE AVENGERS; Reveal How Thor Returns To Earth
Chris Hemsworth and Kevin Feige discuss Thor's return in The Avengers, specifically revealing the means by which he finds his way back to Earth in the film. [Spoilers Ahead]
Last year, Thor kicked off the blockbuster season by opening up at #1 with $65.7 million and eventually grossed $446 million worldwide. In The Avengers, the God of Thunder returns and actor Chris Hemsworth said this about his return in the superhero ensemble. "Thor has conveniently come back to earth briefly because Odin summons dark powers from the universe and it’s very costly. He’s come back to retrieve Loki, who’s running madness on Earth and causing a lot of chaos. He also has some questions of his own he wants answered like, ‘How did this happen and where did I and my brother go wrong?’"
"In ‘Thor’ my character learned a whole lot about humility and gained a new respect for humans because they were able to help him discover who he needed to become in order to earn his powers back," he adds. "I also think he feels very protective of humans now because of his relationship with Jane. Joining The Avengers team is also tricky because he has a personal investment in that his brother Loki is the one who’s causing the chaos and he fears that the others may just want to kill him instead of just stopping him and taking away his powers."
Marvel Studios President and executive producer Kevin Feige explains both Chris Hemsworth and Thor's importance in the film. "The reason we cast Chris Hemsworth is we didn’t want Thor to just be a one dimensional Adonis-like character. What makes a character a Marvel character is that you can relate to them and recognize your own flaws and struggles in the characters’ flaws and struggles. In ‘Thor’ the character has to learn the lesson of humility and Chris was able to bring that in a very likable way, despite the fact that he comes from another world."
