Marvel Studios Shut Down Limitless To Preserve Chris Hemsworth For Thor: Love And Thunder

Hemsworth has been playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for well over a decade at this point. When he started, he was in his mid-20s, a time when it is physically easier (though still not easy) to get in god-like shape. “Like” being the important part there. But as Hemsworth approaches 40, it gets tougher, and the body succumbs to time on some level. Hence, his fascination with wanting to pursue longevity.

As far as Disney is concerned, he’s still the star of a huge franchise and the reality is, they can’t have him breaking himself apart for another project under the media empire’s massive umbrella. But, in the end, everything worked out for all parties involved. We got “Thor: Love and Thunder,” while Hemsworth still got to do a bunch of wild stuff for our entertainment.

“Limitless” is now streaming on Disney+.

From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (“The Whale,” “Black Swan”) and his production company Protozoa, Jane Root’s Nutopia, and Chris Hemsworth and Ben Grayson’s newly formed Wild State, “Limitless” puts cutting-edge science of human longevity center-stage. Part global scientific adventure, part personal journey, each episode of the series follows Chris as he takes up a gauntlet of physical and mental feats designed by world-class experts, scientists and doctors to unlock different aspects of the aging process. Each meticulously crafted challenge is rooted in game-changing science, drawing on new research and long-held traditions. Chris’ mission is to understand the limits of the human body better and discover ways we can all extend health and happiness into old age.
