Thor: Love and Thunder star Chris Hemsworth wants to be in Deadpool 3… and it’s all about upsetting Hugh Jackman.
During an interview with Ali Plumb on BBC Radio 1, the 38-year-old Marvel actor admitted that he would quite like to be the longest-serving comic book actor… but that accolade currently rests with Hugh Jackman.
“I wasn’t gonna,” he said when asked about playing Thor for another six years. “But now 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.”
However, there’s one thing that could scupper Hemsworth…
If Jackman returns for a cameo in Deadpool 3, that would extend the Wolverine star’s run, making Hemsworth’s task even harder. And that’s when he suggested that he could cameo there instead.
“I might make some calls to make sure that doesn’t happen,” he quipped. “Might put myself in Deadpool instead. That would be the offering I think, you know… see if that passes. Yeah.”
Honestly? I could actually see that.
After all, the lighter, zanier tone of Thor: Ragnarok left the Norse superhero with much more of a sense of humor than in previous Thor movies… and I can’t help thinking he would be fascinated by Deadpool’s irreverent humor.
But could it actually happen? Deadpool has already made a surprise cameo alongside Korg – the well-mannered Kronan warrior who befriended Thor during the events of Thor: Ragnarok. But while the team-up saw the odd pair promoting Ryan Reynolds’ other movie, Free Guy, it’s unclear whether or not this will make it into the MCU proper.
Meanwhile, Thor will be busy tackling Gorr the God Butcher in the upcoming sequel.
