Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has one more blockbuster film dropping in 2019 - June 13's Men In Black: International. But after that, the Avengers: Endgame star says he's planning a hiatus from acting to be with his family.

"This year I probably won't shoot anything. I just want to be at home now with my kids," Hemsworth explained to the Daily Telegraph (via ABC Fox Montana). "I have this year where I'm probably not going to shoot anything. I have a press tour, a few endorsements and bits and pieces, but mostly just be home. They are at a very important age. They are still young and they are aware when I leave more than before."

This does call into question when or how Hemsworth might play Thor again, something the Australian actor says he's enthusiastic to do , especially in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It's unclear when that film will shoot, with Gunn himself prepping to direct The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. for an August 6, 2021 theatrical release.

Beyond Hemsworth's prospective Thor plans, the actor has a few movies in the pipeline. He recently completed filming on Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, as well as the upcoming Joe Russo-penned military film Dhaka. Hemsworth is also signed on to play Hulk Hogan in a Todd Phillips-directed biopic.
