The anticipation among fans is growing as Marvel Studios prepares to release Thor: Love and Thunder. Recently, Kevin Feige hinted that the details of the next adventure might emerge sooner than expected. The third Deadpool feature, which will rejoin Ryan Reynolds and longtime partner Shawn Levy, is among the Marvel studio’s future big projects in production. In a recent discussion about Deadpool 3, Chris Hemsworth cracked a hilariously petty joke regarding his portrayal as Thor in the Deadpool movie. Here are the specifics:
Is Thor making an appearance in the Deadpool sequel?
In an interview with Ali Plumb on BBC Radio 1, he brought up Hugh Jackman’s record-breaking run as Wolverine and said that Hemsworth just needed to hold out for another few years to surpass it. When challenged if he saw himself wielding Mjolnir in 6 years to set a new record, Hemsworth joked, “I wasn’t gonna, but now that you’ve put that in front of me, you make a good point it’s only six years. I’ve come this far. To turn back now would just be a waste”.
Plumb then suggested that Jackman may appear in the anticipated Deadpool 3 in 2023, which would extend his career span, to which Hemsworth joked that he “might make some calls to make sure it doesn’t happen.” The actor then playfully added, “Might put myself in Deadpool instead. That would be the offering I think, see if that passes”.
Cast members who’re confirmed for Deadpool 3:
There will undoubtedly be a long list of performers vying for a possible part in Deadpool’s first MCU standalone film now that it is officially confirmed to enter the MCU. While some celebrities, like Morena Baccarin, are still awaiting word on their roles, Leslie Uggams’ Blind Al has already been confirmed to make a comeback. Reynolds was already tangentially connected to the Thor series in a few minutes of the hilarious promotional video when he promoted 2021’s Free Guy with Taika Waititi’s Korg. Considering what occurs in the fourth solo picture, Thor might be one of the superheroes making a surprise cameo when Deadpool 3 does move forward in production.
Thor: Love and Thunder will release in theaters on July 8.
