Chris Hemsworth almost lost the role of Thor for some absurd reason

There are celebrity journeys that we don’t even suspect, and it’s sometimes very surprising to rediscover our favorite characters in styles other than those we’re used to. This was the case for Hugh Jackman, iconic Wolverine actor, dancer and musician before his film career, whom we all rediscovered as an exceptional dancer in the film. The Greatest Showman. But for other actors, like Chris Hemsworth, it almost turned out to be the other way around …

Chris Hemworth: From Samba Dancer To God Of Lightning

The casting of the first Thor film was difficult to achieve. No actor was a perfect fit. Chris Hemsworth didn’t jump for granted from his first audition. On the contrary, he was even failed! It took his representative Willian Ward, fervently insists that Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studio, Deign to let him go through a second hearing which, even her, was not won in advance. However, an event will come to destroy almost everything in this already muddy affair for our favorite actor.

Indeed, at the same time, Chris Hemsworth was on the set of Dance with the Stars Australia. And the fact that an entire country could see the actor dancing the samba for an entire season convinced Kevin Feige what the Australian actor was not a good idea to play the god of lightning. It is at Derek Hough, champion of the show that we owe these words in an interview with Popculture.com.

Chris participated in Dancing with the Stars in Australia. He was dancing the samba there, the guys at Marvel threw him – or they were going to throw him – because people called and said, “Did you see him dance the Samba? That can’t be our Thor.” “

Losing a role because of dancing

Later, during the promotion of Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, Chris Hemsworth confirmed comments to BBC radio that his appearance in Dance with the Stars Australia “almost made him lose the role” which made him the super star we know today.

Kevin Feige said it almost made me lose my job. He told me something like, “We’ve all seen your hearing, we were passing it around the office, and everyone was really in it. And then a few of the girls started to google your name and this dancing video came up and I thought, oh no, Thor was dancing? I don’t know, the fans are going to eat us alive. ‘” It made me more agile on my feet, I guess. I needed to have the cape [de héros]. You could see a little of this quality of Dance with the stars in Thor.

Fortunately, the decision-makers at Marvel were able to reverse their decision and do them great good, since Chris Hemsworth has remained in the title role for over 10 years now and soon a handful of films. You can find it indoors in Thor : Love and Thunder next year the May 6, 2022 in the cinema precisely. But there is one thing Thor has less than his brother, and it’s a miniseries, and if you had missed the events of episode 3 of Loki, the recap is right here.
