Since 2011, only one actor has been famous worldwide for portraying the superhero Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, that actor is Chris Hemsworth.
The Australian actor didn’t start his acting career playing Thor, however. Regardless of his acting origins, it can’t be denied that the titular character, Thor, and the character’s role in sequel films like Thor the Dark World and Avengers Age of Ultron launched not only Chris Hemsworth’s big paydays but also the overall Chris Hemsworth net worth model into the stratosphere of superhero movie stars.
What Is Chris Hemsworth’s Net Worth?
The current calculation of Chris Hemsworth net worth is estimated to be around $130 million. This, of course, will continue to grow as the popular actor continues to turn out more and more franchise movies.
The big paydays didn’t start as soon as he landed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. The first Thor film only landed him an estimated $150,000. Since that first movie, he’s played the character again in his own sequels and four Avengers films. Each Thor sequel and Avengers movie has seen his salary per movie increase. He topped out at $15 million per movie for Thor Ragnorok, Avengers Infinity War, and Avengers Endgame. He’ll once again be playing Thor in the fourth Thor movie (due out in the second half of 2022). This latest outing is expected to earn him a $20 million payday all by itself.
Being able to play superhero Thor isn’t the only way Chris Hemsworth has built his monetary wealth. And success at the movie box office isn’t the only place he’s done it. The Chris Hemsworth net worth model has also found success in the streaming universe.
Yes, Chris Hemsworth has starred in a wide variety of movies, playing a wide variety of characters. He played Captain James Kirk’s father, George Kirk, in 2009’s Star Trek. He also starred as the Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman as well as The Hunstman Winter’s War (which served as both a prequel/sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman).
To say Chris Hemsworth is meant for big movie franchises may be an understatement. Besides getting his first franchise start in none other than a Star Trek film and starring in two Snow White and the Huntsman movies, he also starred in other franchise films like Ghostbusters and Men in Black International.
That being said, his second-biggest character maybe his newest franchise. This is the action film Extraction on Netflix and its upcoming sequel. Its huge popularity on the streaming platform guarantees Chris will be able to continue to build what’s quickly becoming a massive net worth for the star.
