MCU star Chris Hemsworth has revealed which projects from his vast library of experience he’s most proud of and which ones he’s not Thor: Love and Thunderor any Marvel movie for that matter.

Hemsworth is known for many roles outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There’s his action hero Tyler Rake from extractionkevin out ghostbustersShort out cottage in the forestand much more.

He most recently starred as himself in the Disney+ series Limitlesswhere he tried to push his body to its absolute limits.

One of the actor’s biggest upcoming projects will be the Mad Max: Fury Road spin off furiosa, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy as the title character and Chris Hemsworth as Warlord Dementus, the film’s antagonist. The story takes place before George Miller’s 2015 film and follows Charlize Theron’s character at a younger age.

But which project in his vast experience is he most proud of?

What movie is Chris Hemsworth most proud of?

Mad Max, Chris Hemsworth

In an interview with Josh Horowitz, Thor Star Chris Hemsworth spoke about his upcoming movie furiosa and how proud he is of everything he has done.

The actor remarked on what the script for the film was like “The most beautiful thing [he’s] ever read:”

“Well, I just finished filming Furiosa with George Miller. It’s part of the Mad Max saga and… A lot of times I get a script and I know from the first read, from the second read I know who the character is. And I immediately get some sort of visceral feeling associated with that, and I’m like, ‘Okay, right, got it, right?’ I read that two years before we started filming and was impressed by the script, it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever read. I love George Miller, but I didn’t know who this character was.”

Hemsworth admitted how he was originally ” was afraid of [his] Spirit,” scared that he would “Derailing one of the most iconic franchises:”

“And we rehearsed for about four weeks, and we started to dig in and dive in, and things started to come to me, and then about two weeks into filming, something clicked. I said, ‘Ooh, ooh, I guess that’s who it is. I think that’s how he moves.” But before that, and I’m talking a few years, I was terrified and I thought, ‘I’m going to derail one of the most iconic franchises…’ (laughs). I’m going to bring down Mad Max. It will be my fault.”

The star also shared how Mad Max: Fury Road is “one of [his] favorite movies.”

As for his time furiosa, Hemsworth exclaimed how it may have been “The best experience in [his] career and such [he’s] most proud of:”

“Oh buddy…I guess [my time on Furiosa] the best experience of my career and something I’m also most proud of. I put more work into it than anything I’ve ever done and working with George was just wonderful and working with Anya was amazing.”

Hemsworth also shared how he “asked [his] Manager years ago about crazy max,” but Tom Hardy already had the part:

“I think I asked my manager years ago about Mad Max and then Tom Hardy had already been cast and stuff like that, yeah, but I know I was kind of like, ‘(sigh) I missed my window.’ And then the opportunity came and…”

Mad Max or Thor?

While some fans may be a little disappointed that Hemsworth’s proudest film isn’t one of his last seven appearances as the God of Thunder, rest assured the world will keep turning.

Fans can still look forward to George Miller’s upcoming film and the fact that it could very well be the best thing Chris Hemsworth has ever done – provided his feelings ring true in the final product.

Miller’s 2015 film garnered critical acclaim and fans just as much. Hopefully the filmmaker can withstand the pressure and come up with something just as good, if not better.

While it’s exciting to see the actor in a new world, many might be curious as to when Hemsworth will return as Thor – an answer that’s unfortunately unknown.

However, in a recent interview, the actor revealed that he would like to move away from Taika Watiti’s version of the character. Hemsworth noted that he will if he returns (which he certainly will). “a drastically different version in tone.”

When fans next see him, he might have an incredibly serious clash with Hercules. Of course, that’s after Hemsworth took some well-deserved time off.

Thor: Love and Thunder streaming now on Disney+ while furiosa currently targeting a May 24, 2024 release.
