Before entering into the saga of black men against alien invasions, we should go to another Sony franchise to remember that there was a turning point in Chris Hemsworth's career.
Despite the failure at the box office (not wanting to make progress on cinematic "failures"), "The Ghostbusters" (yes, the 2016 version!) Was this fearless curve, one that opened the actor celebrated with Thor for the recording of the comedy . A risk that would eventually create a new direction in your work.
Having previously participated in a new version of "Vacations", it is not that the genre was unknown to him. But it was with Paul Feig's film that he discovered self-parody, a tool that would be useful for redefining Thor's own "Ragnarok," where New Zealand director Taika Waititi gave him space not only for improvisation but for the process construction of the persona through the perspective of the actor. The result may have been a "stunned" superhero, but that was the image internalized by Hemsworth, a self-rejoicing that would be recycled for later work.
After this brief journey, let's forget about the ghost hunters and make the introductions of the new terrestrial patrollers in this fourth movie and possibly sequel / reboot / spin-off (still to be decided). Here, Chris Hemsworth goes back to prolonging this comic side that suits him so well, as well as the chemistry tested and proven with Tessa Thompson (in the third "Thor" and the last "Avengers"), a baggage that settles in this opportunistic variation of formula of recycling that has been fomenting Hollywood in the last years (underlines years here).
