Fat Thor – Chris Hemsworth Reveals How Fat Thor Was Created In Behind

Thor’s potbelly metamorphosis in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ re-energized Chris Hemsworth

Fat Thor : In “Avengers: Endgame,” Chris Hemsworth said that his heroic alter ego’s change from a robust Asgardian to a potbellied has-been has “energised” the actor toward the potential of wielding Thor’s hammer once more.

Thor was originally scheduled to change back to his fit build halfway through the film, but the 35-year-old Australian actor campaigned to keep the weight increase permanent since it provided a new layer to the character.

In an interview with the news site on Tuesday, Hemsworth said, “I adored that version of Thor.”

“It was unlike any previous time I’d portrayed the part. It took on a life of its own after that.”

He described how achieving the “fat” Thor look took three hours of hair and cosmetics, as well as a 90-pound silicone outfit.

He admitted, “It was certainly exhausting.” “I had weights on my hands and ankles merely to change the way my arms and legs swung as I shuffled through the set.”

He originally played the Asgardian hero in 2011’s “Thor,” and he went on to play him in six more Marvel films.

He told Variety that he felt “imprisoned” by Thor’s portrayal in the early films until his humorous, freewheeling makeover in director Taika Waititi’s 2017 picture “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Hemsworth commented, “I felt like I was typecast by whoever was writing those screenplays.”

“I get the impression that the creators were stumped as to where they might take the character, and that this was all he had to offer?

I had the impression that there was so much more we could do.”

In April, Tessa Thompson, who co-starred with Hemsworth in “Ragnarok,” told the Los Angeles Times that the actor may reprise his role as Thor in a standalone “Thor” sequel.

Thompson told the newspaper at the time, “I heard that a proposal has happened for [another ‘Thor’ picture].”

“I’m not sure how accurate that information is, but I’ve heard the pitch took place. I believe the plan is for Taika to return.”

Hemsworth stated he’s open to donning a cape again to further explore Thor’s evolution, despite the fact that the future of Thor was left dangling at the end of “Endgame.”

To be honest, I’d still like to do more,” Hemsworth remarked. “And I have no idea what the plan is.”

I feel like we’ve introduced a completely new character. I’m more enthused about the potential of where it could go.”

“But if it’s the end here, I’ll apply that in other areas and with other characters,” he continued.
