Contrary to popular belief, Chris Hemsworth is not a Norse God but an Australian actor with humble roots and a genetic lottery. After becoming popular in Australian households for his portrayal of Kim Hyde in the show ‘Home and Away’ from 2004 to 2007, he set his foot forth onto greener pastures of Hollywood. His debut came in 2009 with a portrayal of George Kirk in the sci-fi blockbuster ‘Star Trek.’ However, it was his embodiment of the Norse God Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) that catapulted him to fame.

Hemsworth’s charismatic performance in ‘Thor’ (2011) and subsequent appearances in the ‘Avengers’ ensemble films showcased his talent for blending humor and action. His impressive filmography includes a range of roles beyond the MCU, which demonstrates his versatility. Notable among these is his portrayal of racing icon James Hunt in ‘Rush’ (2013), which garnered acclaim for his portrayal of the charismatic yet flawed character. Hemsworth’s commitment to his craft and his commanding presence on-screen have solidified him as a sought-after leading man. If his last rodeo as Tyler Rake in the ‘Extraction’ sequel left you lingering for more of his striking looks, magnetic performances, and multifaceted skill set on screen, then check out his upcoming projects.

1. Transformers One (2024)

A prequel origin story of the Transformers franchise, ‘Transformers One’ is an upcoming animated movie set in Cybertron, home to the Autobots and the Decepticons. The film’s primary focus is the relationship between Megatron and Optimus Prime, voiced by Brian Tyree Henry and Chris Hemsworth, respectively. Animation maestro Josh Cooley is the director, who previously worked on ‘Up’ and ‘Toy Story 4.’ The rest of the voice cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Laurence Fishburne, and Keegan-Michael Key. Currently in post-production, ‘Transformers One’ will hit the big screen on September 20, 2024. You can watch the trailer here.

2. Avengers: Secret Wars (2027)

Continuation of the MCU’s ‘Avengers’ film series, ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ is set to feature Chris Hemsworth, reprising his iconic role of Thor. Numerous heroes from the preceding phases are rumored to make a comeback, joining forces to confront a cosmic menace that rivals the magnitude of Thanos, drawing inspiration from the Marvel Comics’ comic series with the same title. With Kevin Feige producing the film, the movie is announced and in early development. Michael Waldron, who created ‘Loki’ and wrote ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ is penning the film. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be announced. Marvel scheduled the film’s release on May 7, 2027.

3. What If…? Season 3 (TBA)

Marvel’s Disney+ animated series ‘What If…?,’ Season 1 of which premiered in 2021, explores alternate realities with new possibilities as shown to us by the Watcher (voiced by Jeffrey Wright). Season 2 ended in December 2023. However, it was much earlier in 2023 that Marvel confirmed that Season 3 is already in its production phase. Many of the original MCU actors reprised their roles (voices) for the show, including Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (before he passed away), Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier/Bucky and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Considering Hemsworth has voiced Thor in Season 1 and Season 2, his return for Season 3 automatically becomes a possibility. We can only have the assurance once Marvel releases a teaser or a trailer for the same. Check out a sneak peek here showing Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier and Red Guardian teaming up.

From the sneak peek, it seems that while Season 1 and Season 2 delved into the past and explored different realities of events that have already occurred, Season 3 will explore different possibilities that the future has in store. This should lead to more surreal scenarios and situations that our favorite superheroes will find themselves in. A release date for the season hasn’t been released yet. More details about this high-rated show are awaited.

4. Crime 101 (TBA)

Hemsworth has been cast alongside Mark Ruffalo and Barry Keoghan for Amazon MGM Studios’ upcoming crime drama ‘Crime 101.’ Barton Layton and Peter Straughan have based the screenplay on the 2021 eponymous novel by Don Winslow. The story follows Detective Lou Lubesnick, who is bent on catching a shrewd jewel thief who has been carrying out heists based on Crime 101- a set of guidelines for the perfect heist. The film is currently in its pre-production phase and is yet to get a release date.

5. Extraction 3 (TBA)

Netflix’s ‘Extraction,’ the successful action franchise led by Hemsworth, is set to expand with its third installment. The actor, along with director Sam Hargrave, revealed the exciting news during Netflix’s Tudum event, which followed the premiere of ‘Extraction 2’ on June 16, 2023. We will see Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake gracing the screen for a suicide rescue mission again, but not anytime soon, as the script is in development and the movie is yet to enter the pre-production phase.

6. Untitled Transformers/G.I. Joe Crossover (TBA)

Hemsworth is in talks with Paramount and Hasbro Entertainment for the upcoming untitled Transformers- G.I. Joe crossover film. The film will pick up from where ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ ended, i.e., Noah Diaz (Anthony Ramos) being approached by the Joes for a job. In April, Paramount announced that the film is in the pipeline, with Michael Bay returning to co-produce and Steven Spielberg co-executive producing. Steven Caple Jr., who directed ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,’ is expected to be back to direct this one, too. More details about this epic project are awaited.

7. Mad Max: The Wasteland (TBA)

‘Mad Max: The Wasteland’ is a sequel to ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ Set to be directed by George Miller, the movie will have a bleak focus on Max, retaining his V8 Interceptor. In a 2015 interview, Miller confirmed that ‘Furiosa’ will not be a part of the film’s narrative. As of now, filming has yet to commence, and no specific timeline has been set. Hemsworth is expected to reprise his role of Warlord Dementus alongside Tom Hardy’s Max Rockatansky. The story will follow MaxRockatansky a year prior to the events of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ However, Miller has recently stated that the movie’s development is based on how well ‘Mad Max: Furiosa’ performs. So we can’t be sure that it will happen, especially since ‘Mad Max: Furiosa’ has been underperforming at the box office.

8. Untitled Hulk Hogan Biopic (TBA)

Last reported to be directed by the ‘Joker’ filmmaker Todd Phillips, the upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic remains largely under wraps and delayed. Anticipated to trace Hulk Hogan’s ascent within the wrestling realm in the 1980s, the film will likely follow his meteoric surge during the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling era in the WWF and the explosion of Hulkamania. Chris Hemsworth is set to take up yet another iconic mantle as he is set to play the titular Hulk Hogan. It can be inferred that the production of the Hogan biopic might commence after ‘Joker: Folie à Deux.’
