Actor Chris Hemsworth said the various changes to his character in “Thor: Ragnarok”, including his new hairstyle, were caused by … Kevin Smith.

While still sporting his long blonde Viking hair at the start of Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth shows up with a brand new hairstyle when he arrives in the Grandmaster arena to fight the Hulk.

A drastic change in appearance that the storyline warrants with a complete superhero makeover in the gladiator preparation room, but which Chris Hemsworth recently described as an intention to dust off the character.

Indeed, at the microphone of Vanity Fair, the comedian explained that this new hairstyle, as well as the many other changes made to Thor in Ragnarok, had in part been motivated by a podcast from Kevin Smith, geek icon, director of Clerks and Dogma, who had called Marvel’s God of Thunder a boring hero.

“Hearing the words of someone like [Kevin] Smith, who represents the fanboy universe, was a real kick in the butt to rehabilitate us. We ended up having nothing to lose. People weren’t expecting it. not what we did this time around, “says Chris Hemsworth, before admitting that he himself had been waiting for this change for a long time:

The new Thor saw his hair grow back in Avengers: Endgame, and will sport it a priori in his next MCU appearance, unless Kevin Smith makes another derogatory remark about the Asgard superhero.
