Thor was the role that made Hemsworth an easily recognizable name around the globe. Be that as it may, the Aussie actor wasn’t a fan. Hemsworth has expressed that he was ‘frustrated and bored with the character’. Yet, when ‘Thor: Rangnarok’ came around, the actor was instrumental in making it amusing.
