Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth Thor movie, has just a few days left before release, and anticipation levels are through the roof. Fans are continuously exposed to details about what to expect in the next blockbuster movie as they wait for its July 8 release date. While a few teaser trailers have made it clear that humour, adventure, and intense action are to be anticipated, the performers have also made important discoveries of their own, such as the inclusion of their children.
Thor: Love and Thunder will include mini-me versions of its actors, including Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, and even the real-life children of director Takia Waititi. In an interview with Kevin McCarthy, Hemsworth said that three of his children played roles in the film, including his 10-year-old daughter India, who portrays the character Love, and his 8-year-old twin sons, who each played the younger versions of his character.
Regarding his children’s participation in the movie, the actor continued by saying that the experience was very great and that they “truly wanted to be in it. “He continued by adding that his co-stars’ children had access to the camera, saying, “Taika had his children in there. Christian Bale had his. Natalie had her kids as well.” He then added that “It felt sort of like a one-off, fun family experience.”
Hemsworth looked enthusiastic about the entire experience, although he dispelled any hopes his fans may have had of seeing his children in further films by saying, “I don’t want them to now go and be child stars and actors. It was just a special experience we all had, and I loved it. They had a great time”.
Christian Bale, who plays the bloodthirsty villain Gorr the God Butcher, has already talked about his children’s participation in the picture. Bale discussed how reading Waititi’s script convinced him to see the movie in an interview with Screen Rant. However, Bale claimed that due to schedule issues, he nearly abandoned the film but was persuaded to continue by his children. Bale said, “There were some potential scheduling conflicts. I said to my family, ‘I don’t think it’s going to work out,’ and they went, ‘No, you make it work out. You’re doing this, Dad.’ They gave me my marching orders, and I dutifully obeyed.”
