Chris Hemsworth to join the DC Universe

0


After filming extensively, DC’s film lineup is finally starting to get back on track. With an injection of new life and a new creative vision behind the wheel of the ship, recent films have been much better received than those of the past. To continue, however, Warner Bros. will have to keep making good decisions. One of their latest ploys, rumored to be, could be to attempt to poach one of Marvel’s heavy hitters – Chris Hemsworth.

For over 10 years, Chris Hemsworth lit up the screen as Thor, the god of thunder. Playing the role of Asgardian in several films, he helped make the MCU what it is today.

Despite all of this, however, it took a little while before Thor really received the kind of praise he was due. Thor: The Dark World despite everything, most of Thor’s appearances were only correct. While his solo films were able to explore the character’s personality and emotions more than his Avengers teams, his overly dramatic Shakespearean dialogue and somewhat rambling tone of his films have always been a barrier to connecting with audiences.

Thor: Ragnarok changed all that. Between the insanely funny script, the masterful staging by Taika Waititi, and Hemsworth’s own incredibly competent comedy chops, Thor has become everyone’s favorite new Avenger almost overnight. It was clearly a change that Hemsworth himself had wanted to make for some time, and that the public didn’t know he wanted until he got it.

DC could eye Chris Hemsworth for future project

As Hemsworth prepares to take the hammer for what may be his last time, the star is going to need something else to do while he waits for chances to make an appearance in the post-credits scenes of future Marvel films. Based on reports from Giant monster robot, he could use that time to hang out with Marvel’s main competitor in the comics.

According to their insider scoop, DC and WB are looking to bring Hemsworth into a future film project. No details on what that might be are yet available, but it’s not hard to think that it might be legitimate. After all, Hemsworth commands a ton of star power, and with the lighter tone the DC movies are heading towards now, this would be the perfect opportunity for him to stretch his comedy muscles again.

While this is all unfounded speculation on our part, a potential role for Hemsworth could be as new Captain Boomerang. In the comics, Digger Harkness (the first Captain Boomerang) was revealed to have had a son, Owen Mercer, whom he had never met until adulthood. After the father’s death, the son took over as the new, slightly overpowered Boomerang. With Boomer’s horrific death in The suicide squad, the character’s Australian heritage, and how funny it would be to see muscular Hemsworth playing Jai Courtney’s supposed son, it’s not that far-fetched.

Hemsworth has a full plate for now

Before a potential DC role can materialize, Hemsworth already has a lot of work to do. First and foremost the fourth Thor movie, Love and thunder, in which he will find his comrades from all previous Thor installments under the direction of Waititi (which DC may also be approaching in the future).

He also has his head in Escape Spiderhead, a new science fiction film based on the novel by George Saunders. He will also reprise his role in Netflix. Extraction 2. After that, he will need to start training for his currently undisclosed role in the Mad Max prequel Furiosa, and for his role as Mr. America himself in a new biopic on Hulk Hogan.
