Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky calls the film her “favorite Marvel movie” and jokes about the already famous butt scene
Thor: Love and Thunder had its world premiere on Thursday and critics are already calling the film hilarious and heartfelt. Fans are excited to see the return of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif) as well as some of the guardians of the galaxy stars. There’s also a lot of buzz about Hemsworth’s butt, which was teased in the film’s trailer. Fans are excited to take a peek, and Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, is all about it.
“Such a fun night at the Thor premiere in LA. It’s great to see everyone having a blast, I think it’s my favorite Marvel movie to date. Check it out to my hubby on July 8th 🤣,” Pataky shared on Instagram this week. You can see his photo below:
“It took 10 years to do this scene – kind of a dream for me,” said Hemsworth Variety when asked about his butt’s MCU debut. “The first time I played Thor, I took off my shirt and thought, ‘You know what’s going to sweeten this…in a decade, everything’s going to go away.
“I feel like we all talked about it,” said director Taika Waititi. “We had talked, ‘Yeah, we have to show that body.’ My whole thing was like, Chris works so hard, you gotta show it. Don’t hide it with all those suits and the cape and all that, it’s not fair!”
In the past, Waititi has teased that Thor: Love and Thunder “is so crazy and also very romantic.” During an interview with Empirethe director pointed out that it is “the craziest film” he has ever made.
“Well, just between [me and] you and the readers, I’ve done some crazy bullshit in my life. I’ve lived, like, ten lives. But it’s the craziest movie I’ve ever done,” Waititi shared. “If you wrote all the elements of this movie, it shouldn’t make sense,” he added, ” it’s almost as if it shouldn’t be done. If you walk into a room and say, “I want this and this and that. Who’s in it? These people. What are you going to call it? love and thunder. I mean, you would never work again. Maybe I won’t after that.”
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to hit theaters on July 8.
