All in the Family Thor: Love and ThunderThere are many roles that children can play, but Chris Hemsworth‘s daughter India HemsworthPotentially, could have a future in Marvel Cinematic Universe. [Spoiler Alert: The end of Thor: Love and Thunder is revealed below!]

India, 10, plays Love, who initially dies in the film’s opening. Gorr the God Butcher, her father (Christian BaleThe action movie ends with her bringing her back to life. Since the villain knows he can’t survive, he asks Thor (Hemsworth) to care for his child.

In the final scene, Love is shown being raised by her “Uncle Thor,” and the young girl argues with the superhero about wearing her boots. “It was just like when I’m at home, trying to tell her to do anything, she’s like, ‘Pfft, no, I’ll do it my way.’ And power to her, good on her, because she did an incredible job,” Hemsworth, 38, told Marvel.com in an interview published Saturday, July 9.

They eventually confess that they love one another before running out into battle. Thor has Mjölnir, his magic hammer, and Love carries Stormbreaker, the axe used to kill Thanos.

India didn’t automatically get the role, despite her dad’s role as star and executive producer. Hemsworth — who shares India with wife Elsa Pataky — helped her tape an audition for director Taika Waititi, and he found himself feeling “nervous” while she was one set. The newcomer had tons of fun.

“I love the ownership the kids have in moments like that,” Hemsworth explained. “It’s a good reminder, all of it, for all of us just to stay true to who you are and not get caught up in the self-importance of it all. [Kids] really bring you back to Earth and ground the whole experience.”

Bale, 48, revealed that the leading man was always on set with India, even in scenes where he wasn’t needed. “Chris was a wonderfully attentive dad, just off-camera all the time, just checking she was all right, giving me thumbs up, me giving him thumbs up, checking,” the Batman actor told Marvel.com. “It was really endearing seeing the two of them. He sort of let her be, and she did it herself.”

India’s involvement led to Waititi, 46, making the film a family affair. Pataky, her mom, plays the wolf woman Thor passionately kisses in flashback. Tristan, 8-year-old twins, and Sasha (8-year old sister) also made cameos. Tristan played young Thor, while Sasha was an Asgardian child.

“It was not always the plan,” the director, who also plays Korg, explained of the family cameos. “The idea started really when Chris was talking about [his daughter] India. And he was like, ‘Oh, you know, it would kind of be quite cool for me to be in a scene with my daughter.’ I started looking around like, ‘Oh, everyone has kids. All of these actors are parents.’”

Natalie PortmanAleph, 11 years old, and Amalia, 5 years old, share their sons with their husbands Benjamin Millepied. Bale shares Emmeline Bale’s 17-year-old daughter with his wife, and Joseph, 7 years, with his son Joseph. Sibi Blažić. Waititi shares daughters Te Kāinga o te Hinekāhu, 10, and Matewa Kiritapu, 6, with ex Chelsea Wistanley.

“I really love the idea that my kids can look back on this moment and be like, oh wow, we were there. There’s a record of it,” Waititi emphasized.

However, the God of Thunder actor said that this was a “one-off” experience, despite the ending clearly leaving room for Love to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe one day.

“I don’t want them to now go and be child stars and actors,” Hemsworth told Good Day DC. “It was just a special experience we all had and they loved it. They had a great time.”

It seems that the reason was probably the kids Thor: Love and ThunderThis is a great cast. Portman, 41, hasn’t played Jane Foster sinceThor: The Dark WorldShe returned to Marvel in 2014 because her kids love it.

“I feel like it’s the phase of my career where I’m really trying to just impress my kids,” she told Variety last month. “My 5-year-old and my 10-year-old were so enthralled by this process, getting to visit the set and see me dressed up in a cape. It was really cool. You know, it’s very rare that my kids are like, ‘Please go to work!’ Usually, it’s quite the opposite.”

Bale echoed the sentiment in June when he recalled telling his family that he probably wouldn’t take the role as Love and Thunder’s villain due to scheduling conflicts. “I said to my family, ‘I don’t think it’s going to work out,’ and they went, ‘No, you make it work out. You’re doing this, Dad.’ They gave me my marching orders, and I dutifully obeyed,” he told ScreenRantat the time.
