Liam Hemsworth is coming to Thor 4 to take charge of Mjolnir
Chris Hemsworth has been Thor for over a decade now. If you Google ‘Thor’, the search results will be flooded with the Australian actor’s handsome face. With the success of the last movie in the Thor series, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, fame became Chris Hemsworth’s middle name. But now, the next Thor movie is going to be a family affair.
Chris Hemsworth will be joined by his younger brother, Liam Hemsworth, in Thor 4. It will be Chris vs Liam Hemsworth on screen! But what role will Liam be taking up in the Marvel Phase 5 movie, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’?
If we are to believe the reports, Liam Hemsworth will make his MCU debut with Thor 4 as Beta Ray Bill.
Liam Hemsworth as Beta Ray Bill
Disney is rigorously casting famous faces for MCU and it is becoming easier to name the actors who haven’t been cast rather than the ones who have been. With new casting reports coming in almost every week, the latest in the stack is Liam Hemsworth.
According to We Got This Covered, the younger Hemsworth brother (who was the highlight of 2019 when Miley Cyrus broke up with him after 7 months of marriage) is being eyed for the role of Beta Ray Bill. Earlier, it was speculated that Christian Bale would be cast as the Beta Ray Bill. But now, reports claim that Christian Bale will be a villain in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.
Who is Bill Beta Ray, the character that Liam Hemsworth will be (most probably) playing?
In Marvel Comics, during a battle, Thor loses his mighty hammer, Mjolnir. Subsequently, Beta Ray Bill picks it up thus proving that he is worthy. After this, Thor and Beta Ray Bill are forced to face-off to death to decide who will be the bearer of Mjolnir. Beta Ray Bill wins but spares Thor’s life. Later in the comics, we see this superhero fight alongside Thor to protect the Asgardians.
According to the same ‘We Got This Covered’ report, Disney wants to ‘refresh’ the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 (2022). For this, one of the characters they will be introducing is Beta Ray Bill. But this superhero, who will reportedly be played by Liam Hemsworth, will be introduced much earlier in Thor 4, i.e., Love and Thunder (2021).
Do you think Liam Hemsworth will do justice to this new Marvel character? Will Chris Hemsworth’s Thor overshadow Liam Hemsworth’s Beta Ray Bill or vice versa? Share your views in the comments section below.
