Chris Hemsworth On The Difference Between A Solo THOR Film And An AVENGERS Ensemble

Actor Chris Hemsworth was at TIFF to promote his upcoming film Rush but fielded some Marvel Studios questions in the process. In terms of the difference between a solo Thor film and an Avengers film, Hemsworth says there's no difference..except there is.

One would think the acting demands placed on Chris Hemsworth's shoulders in his solo Thor films would be different from the load he carries on the ensemble, Avengers feature films...right? "No, it's pretty similar," counters Hemsworth. He continued, "Each time, you make the attempt - 'okay, where do we take it from here? How do we make it better? How do we not repeat what we've done? How does the character not fall into 'the hero' now and become predictable?' That's the challenge. You apply the same motivation and commitment to it each time."

Upon further thought, Hemsworth did admit it is a little different, making a solo Thor film in comparison to an Avengers movie. "The standalone Thor film is always sort of different [from] The Avengers, I think - having done a couple of them, obviously, you're not carrying it on your shoulders as the one superhero, you're with a group. Which is kind of more fun in a lot of ways because you share the responsibility but the dynamic of all those guys is vastly different from the characters on their own."

Thor: The Dark World arrives in theaters on November 8, 2013. Avengers: Age of Ultron drops May 1, 2015.
