Marvel's 'Thor: Love and Thunder' turned out to be a box office hit when it released in theatres and the new Hollywood movie collected more than USD 750 million worldwide. However, many Marvel fans were not impressed with the Taika Waititi-directorial which featured humour. Now, in the latest Hollywood news, 'Thor' actor Chris Hemsworth has opened up on the criticism, saying the movie was "too silly". 

“I think we just had too much fun. It just became too silly. It’s always hard being in the center of it and having any real perspective…I love the process, it’s always a ride. But you just don’t know how people are going to respond," the actor said in an interview with GQ magazine.

'Thor: Love and Thunder' had released in the theatres in 2022 and the movie starred Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Waititi, Natalie Portman, and Russell Crowe. 

The actor also said that the movie was criticised by his son's friends.

“It’s a bunch of eight-year-olds critiquing my film. ‘We thought this one had too much humor, the action was cool but the VFX weren’t as good'. “I cringe and laugh equally at it," Chris Hemsworth said.

For the unversed, Chris Hemsworth has starred in eight Marvel movies. The actor currently is not contracted for any more Marvel movies.

“I love the experience. I love the fact that I’ve been able to do something fairly different throughout the process. ‘Thor 1’ and 2 were their own thing, ‘Thor 3’ and 4 were a very different feel…and then even ‘Avengers,’ the Lebowski Thor, the ‘Infinity War’ Thor, due to different directors and I think mostly my own need to do something different," Chris Hemsworth said.

The actor also addressed the criticism of Marvel movies by filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. 

“That’s super depressing when I hear that. There goes two of my heroes I won’t work with. I guess they’re not a fan of me," said Hemsworth.

Chris Hemsworth will next be seen in Netflix film 'Extraction 2' which premieres on the streaming platform on June 16.
