It can still be argued that actors who play superheroes are a sort of sell-off in the minds of skeptical Hollywood analysts. With Chris Hemsworth, this has a very different perspective when viewed from a monetary perspective.
If it is true that many top actors have become much richer in becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we do not always do that. I know the reasons why they went there.
Given the fact that Robert Downey Jr. mainly made independent films in the mid-2000s, the financial rewards for the MCU were simply too tempting. For Hemsworth it was financially a worse situation.
Hemsworth had a difficult time becoming an American actor
Let's go back a decade when Hemsworth came to Hollywood for the first time to play in movies. Previously, he had seven years of acting experience in Australia, mostly on television.
No doubt, surviving on the merit of an actor in Australia was more than living in Los Angeles. In addition to having a brief, minor role as James Kirk's father in the first Star Trek remake movie, he did not find it easy to complete any lucrative acting business.
His very first acting job here in the US was for an indie film entitled Ca $ h where he was mainly hired for his looks and acting skills. While this was not the first time something like this had been done to create a movie star, it was risky.
Following this film and the appearance of A Perfect Getaway in 2009, Hemsworth Seemed To Be In Financial Difficulty
The absence of key roles led to burnout near the action.
The late 2000s were not a good time for Hemsworth, as he recently reported in an interview for Variety. His goal of helping his family financially made him so nervous during auditions that he could not relax. Fear became a big problem in his life.
This would have left him the occupation in G.I. can cost. Joe and Gambit in the X-Men films with Wolverine. Of course, since then he has learned to give each role self-confidence by looking more relaxed than anyone else.
Yet, career pressure can really fill gaps in your brain. If Hemsworth fails in these auditions, this is financially a dangerous place. For a while he was not sure he could stay in Los Angeles because he ran out of money.
The cast as Thor was the best showbiz coincidence, but certainly not the only story in which an actor was virtually saved from giving up by the bell.
What happens now, if Hemsworth has earned millions of dollars?
Many sources now claim that Hemsworth's net assets are in excess of $ 100 million. Not that his other film projects outside of Thor were just as lucrative as those offered by the MCU.
Perhaps this will change as the new franchise Men in Black: International burns. Hemsworth now has time to work on new film features so he will not face dangerous stereotypes for ten years.
On the other hand, for the rest of his life he could only leave the coast as an actor and be able to live comfortably. However, due to his ambitious attitude, he probably wants to do high quality work. As quoted by F. Gary Gray in the Variety interview above:
"There is a difference between superstars and actors studying their craft. He is a combination of both.
With so much dedication, Hemsworth will certainly find parts that excel in skill while managing to remain lucrative, but this has been largely true in the superhero film universe.
