"Contractually, right now - yeah, this is it. I'm done. I won't be playing the character again. (The end seems like) a scary thought.

This really seemed like this never-ending thing. And now it's potentially finishing," Hemsworth told USA Today.

The actor, who last reprised his role in Thor: Ragnarok, is although ready to take the part forward in the film franchise if things transpire in the future.

Hemsworth will next be seen in Avengers: Infinity War, alongside other MCU veterans, such as Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner. Also in pipeline is next year's Avengers 4.

"So who knows? There are 76 cast members in these two Avengers films. They will be the biggest films of all time, far bigger than my character. It's a conversation for further down the road, if it was going to happen," he said.
