'It would be cool': Chris Hemsworth DOWN for a crossover between Marvel and DC, wants to fight this DC character
In a recent interview, Chris Hemsworth has opened up about the crossover between Marvel, DC, and this is what he has to say
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Marvel and DC are two of the biggest production companies in the world right now, making movies and TV shows that keep on enthralling viewers with riveting content. Even though these are two different entities, fans of both production houses have a dream of these two coming together and making superheroes of both sides fight each other. However, it seems one of the actors from the Marvel side has also voiced his opinion on the matter and gave a massive thumbs up to the idea of two sides fighting each other.
Actor Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), has come forward in saying that he would love to see a crossover between Marvel and DC Universe someday and also revealed which superhero he would want to fight if the project goes ahead.
In a recent interview with The Geek House Show, the 39-year-old actor was asked about the crossover between MCU and DCU, and noted that it would be “cool” to see superheroes from both sides going against each other. But who will he be choosing to fight? Here’s what he said.
“It would be cool. Who would be a fun matchup? Thor and Aquaman, that could be fun – you know Jason is a good friend of mine,” Hemsworth said.
The crossover between MCU and DCU is a long shot, but with James Gunn at the helm of DC Studios, it might be possible. Also, during ‘Eternals’, they did make a joke about Superman’s existence while making a comparison to Richard Madden’s Ikaris.
Hemsworth’s comments comes to a couple of days after he revealed that he has a higher-than-average chance of developing Alzheimer's disease. While speaking to Vanity Fair, the ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ star noted that he took genetic tests for ‘Limitless’, a docu-series that explores different ways humans can live better for longer by taking on physical challenges such as diving in ice or climbing skyscrapers. He said, “My concern was I just didn’t want to manipulate it and over-dramatize it and make it into some sort of hokey grab at empathy, or whatever, for entertainment. It’s not like I’ve been handed my resignation.”
As a result, he will be taking a break from acting amid a health warning. “It really triggered something in me to want to take some time off,” he said.
As far as the crossover between MCU and DCU is concerned, Hemsworth is not the only actor who has said that he would like the crossover to happen at some point. DCEU’s newest member Dwayne Johnson, who played the titular role in ‘Black Adam’, also feels ‘optimistic’ about the crossover. While attending the film’s premiere, Johnson told Variety, “Well, I’m always optimistic. I’d like to think that we would see that. My philosophy is anything can get done. Let’s start with the end goal. And if the end goal is to have some sort of crossover that can be compelling, smart, cool for the fans.”
It will be interesting to see if Marvel and DC bosses talk of a crossover event in the future. What are your thoughts on the crossover? Would you like to see Marvel and DC superheroes going against each other? Tell us in the comments.
