Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

While Chris Hemsworth was pre­par­ing to play Thor again, in Thor: Rag­narok, he was ex­cited by the di­rec­tion the char­ac­ter would take in the story. “This film, in par­tic­u­lar, is the big­gest char­ac­ter shift and a gear shift tonally in the sto­ry­telling, so that af­fects my ap­proach,” Hemsworth says. “That was all birthed through di­rec­tor Taika Waititi’s vi­sion and his sense of hu­mor, his at­ti­tude and need for ex­plo­ration. Do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent par­al­leled what I wanted to achieve. It’s been one of the most ex­cit­ing and fun sets.” While talk­ing about the train­ing, he said, “I prob­a­bly did more fight scenes and stunts in this film. There was a lot more ac­tion and dif­fer­ent weapons, which was great be­cause you’re fairly lim­ited by how the ham­mer can move. We had swords and all sorts of laser guns. The phys­i­cal train­ing was sim­i­lar to the pre­vi­ous times. You have to eat a lot of the right food and train a lot. It’s a few hours a day in the gym and prep­ping meals and all the dis­ci­pline that comes with it”
