When Avengers: Endgame... well, ended, Chris Hemsworth's Thor and the surviving Guardians of the Galaxy left Earth for places unknown. They had just won a costly battle against the alien despot Thanos and were itching for a fresh start.
While this may seemingly confirm Chris Hemsworth's inclusion in the still-distant Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it actually doesn't guarantee anything. Even if Hemsworth is seriously interested in appearing. Dave Bautista, who portrayed Drax in every film in which the Guardians appeared, echoed Chris Hemsworth's enthusiasm.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dave Bautista said:
Yeah! Absolutely. If we can all do Infinity War and Endgame together… It was a who’s who there and there were no issues. It was pretty amazing to see. That’s a trickle-down thing. That comes from the top. Marvel set the tone for an environment, and that’s what the environment is. I think they take all those things into consideration when people are being hired, and it was incredible to see a who’s who of Hollywood, all interacting together in a very pleasant atmosphere. There were no egos; there was no ego-clashing or attitude. If there was, I didn’t witness it. I think Chris Hemsworth is a great guy; he’s a fun-loving Aussie. He is what you’d expect him to be. He’s very funny, pleasant and upbeat. He’s very social, so I think that would be a perfect fit to be honest with you. I think Hemsworth is hysterical.
Regardless of whether or not he drowns himself in outrageous amounts of booze, Thor would fit in perfectly with the Guardians, even if it's just a temporary deal. Hopefully he sticks with them for a while!
Filming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 probably won't even begin until 2020, so we still have a while to wait before those intergalactic misfits hit the screen again. Until then, we'll have to be content watching his other MCU appearances. Oh well.
Stay tuned for more Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 updates as they come trickling in! We'll likely hear more about the project sooner rather than later. For now, find out what other Marvel movies are in development with our handy guide.
