It looks like Thor will always have a Hemsworth. Chris Hemsworth portrayed the titular character, Thor, in the 2011 version of the film. Fans loved his performance and became a fan favorite. Thor emitted a Shakesperean vibe in the first film followed by a misguided approach in the second and finally finishing with comedic touch in the final Thor movie.
