Chris Hemsworth Eyes Role In ‘Transformers’ & ‘G.I. Joe’ Crossover Film

Chris Hemsworth, renowned for his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is in talks to star in the highly anticipated Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover movie, a collaborative effort between Amazon MGM and Mattel, per Variety. This new role, if cast, potentially marks Hemsworth’s return to the Transformers universe, who will also lend his voice to the character of Optimus Prime in the upcoming Transformers One.

This new project was confirmed during CinemaCon earlier this year, sparking excitement among fans with the prospect of combining two of the most beloved toy-based franchises for the first time on the big screen. The announcement follows the setup introduced in the 2023 film Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, where a character portrayed by Michael Kelly extends a G.I. Joe card to Noah Diaz, played by Anthony Ramos, hinting at the forthcoming crossover.

In the upcoming crossover, not much is known about the plot, but it’s anticipated to involve a significant threat that brings together the forces of the Transformers and G.I. Joe. This venture into uncharted cinematic territory promises a fresh narrative potentially inspired by various comic book series. While specifics remain under wraps, the presence of characters from both universes collaborating to avert a global crisis is expected.

Amidst this new venture, Hemsworth’s recent projects have seen varied success. His portrayal of Dementus in Furiosa, the Mad Max prequel, hasn’t made significant waves at the box office, reflecting the unpredictable nature of film successes. Despite this, Hemsworth continues to be a major draw, with his upcoming roles in Extraction 3 and Crime 101, alongside Mark Ruffalo, anticipated by fans. As Transformers One prepares for its theatrical release on 20 September, fans can look forward to Hemsworth’s performance, which marks a significant shift from his previous roles.

Chris Hemsworth’s potential involvement in the Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover could further cement his status as a versatile actor capable of crossing from superhero genres to action-packed animations and beyond. This crossover does not yet have a specific release date, but anticipation is already building in the fanbase.
