In an interview, Chris Hemsworth, who made quite a name for himself with his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, talked about how he was compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger. The actor was very disappointed with the question, despite the similar physique, looks, and history of the films they both have done.

Hemsworth was of the belief that there was much difference in the genre of the movies done by him and Arnold Schwarzenneger. His movies are somewhat of a mixture of sub-genres in comparison to action films often done by Schwarzenneger.

Chris Hemsworth’s disappointment in being compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger

Chris Hemsworth debuted his career on the big screen with the role of George Kirk in the popular film Star Trek. What followed was the actor’s straight path to stardom as Hemsworth starred in the role of Thor in the Marvel Studios. The actor’s dream of working for a long time in Hollywood was achieved after he secured the role of Thor, appearing in a bunch of movies later like The Avengers.

“It’s hard not to say that playing Thor and being a part of the Marvel universe was rewarding because it’s shaped my whole career and a lot of my life in such a positive way,” Hemsworth once said in an interview.

The actor’s success led to him being a big name in Hollywood. His popularity, with his looks, physique, and filmography led some to believe that Chris Hemsworth was the modern-day Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, Hemsworth was not too keen on the idea.

“I got asked the other day, did you always want to be the next Schwarzenegger? And I thought that’s what you’ve got from what I’ve done? I was really disappointed, like I thought, you know, that I’d chosen these scripts and loved them because they had real actors in them and real story and heart, and sometimes with films the action overshadows anything else.”

The Extraction actor thought there was a difference between the movies he made and those of Schwarzenegger as his movies were more of a mixture of subgenres, unlike the action films we have mostly seen Schwarzenegger be a part of.

Would Schwarzenegger be a part of a superhero film again?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a popular name in Hollywood for as long as one could remember. The actor has had quite a history with action films, appearing as the Terminator in the Terminator franchise. The actor even played the nemesis in Batman & Robin, however, that was the last of his exposure to any superhero films.

However, despite the backlash received by Batman & Robin and a certain decline in his career after the release, the True Lies actor wouldn’t back down from giving the genre another shot.

“I think all of those movies, if they’re written well, they’re entertaining. If it’s Batman or Batman and Robin, or X-Men or Spider-Man — all of them. If they’re written well, they have a great life. People enjoy them, and you can see the grosses that they make worldwide. So, yes, of course I would.”
