Thor: Ragnarok was a huge hit for Marvel last year, and Hemsworth will now play a key role in Avengers: Infinity War and, presumably, its follow-up Avengers 4.
But following recent speculation that he could exit the franchise, he has now revealed plans to take a break from acting altogether.
The actor is currently promoting his latest film 12 Strong, during promotion for which he told The Times of his worries about spending time away from his kids.
“I want to be able to take the kids to school,” he said. “I may even be off all year. It all happened at once and I’ve thought about it and gone, ‘God, am I trying to do too much at once?’
“There’s no regret by any means. It just comes out of wanting to be [at home] more.”
He added: “I want to be there more. My wife and I were talking the other day about how the years are flying by: our daughter is five and a half and the boys are three and a half.
“And however much time you do have together, it never seems like enough. It’s always exhausting, even when we have help with grandparents or a nanny.”
Indeed, Hemsworth has been incredibly busy in recent years: he’s starred in nine movies since 2015, with more still to come.
“Contractually, right now—yeah, this is it,” he told USA Today.
Avengers: Infinity War is out on April 27 in the UK.
