Marvel: Sir Anthony Hopkins says Thor role was 'pointless acting'

Sir Anthony Hopkins has described his work in Marvel's Thor films as "pointless acting".

The Port Talbot-born star joined the cast of Thor, Kenneth Branagh's film version of the Marvel comic in 2011.

He played Odin, the father of the titular character, and also appeared in 2013's Thor: The Dark World and 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.

Hopkins says if you're sitting in front of a green screen, it's pointless acting it adding they put him in armour; they shoved a beard on me, and told him to sit on the throne, shout a bit.

Sir Anthony made history in 2021 by becoming the oldest person to win an Academy Award for acting, winning a second Oscar for his role as a man with dementia in The Father.

Meanwhile his Thor co-star Chris Hemsworth says he loved the experience of making Thor movies, but joked he got sick of the character pretty quickly every couple of years.

Hemsworth adds he loves the fact that they have been able to do something fairly different throughout the process where Thor 1 and 2 were their own thing, Thor 3 and 4 were a very different feel.

He further adds he is open to returning to Thor, "seeing what they have to offer creatively, if there is something new" for the character.
