Everyone in the family. Thor: Love and Thunder has many roles for children, but Chris Hemsworths daughter India Hemsworth could potentially have a future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. [Spoiler Alert: The end of Thor: Love and Thunder is revealed below!]

India, 10, plays Love, who initially dies at the film’s opening. Her father, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Balle), brings her back to life at the end of the action film. Knowing he cannot survive, the villain asks Thor (Hemsworth) to take care of his child.

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

The two eventually say they love each other before running outside into battle. Thor has Mjölnir, his magical hammer, and Love carries Stormbreaker, the ax used to kill Thanos.

India didn’t get the role automatically, despite her father’s role as star and executive producer. Hemsworth – who shares India with his wife Elsa Pataki — helped her tape an audition for the director Taika Waititi, and he felt “nervous” while she was a set. However, the newcomer had a lot of fun.

“I love the empowerment that kids have in moments like this,” Hemsworth said. “It’s all a good reminder for all of us to just stay true to who you are and not get caught up in the importance of it all. [Kids] really brings you back down to earth and grounds the whole experience.”

Bale, 48, revealed the leading man was always on set with India, even in scenes where he wasn’t needed. “Chris was a wonderfully thoughtful dad, off camera all the time, he was just checking if she was ok, gave me thumbs up, I gave him thumbs up, checking,” the Batman actor told Marvel.com. “It was really adorable to see them both. He kind of left her alone and she did it herself.”

India’s involvement led to Waititi, 46, making the film a family affair. Her mother Pataky appears as the wolf woman who kisses Thor passionately in a flashback. Her little brothers, twins Tristan and Sasha, 8, even scored guest appearances, with Tristan playing young Thor and Sasha an Asgardian child.

“It wasn’t always the plan,” the director, who also plays Korg, explained of the family cameos. “The idea really came about when Chris talked about it [his daughter] India. And he said, ‘Oh, you know, it would be pretty cool for me to be in a scene with my daughter.’ I started looking around, like, ‘Oh, everyone has kids. All of these actors have children.”

Natalie Portman shares son Aleph, 11, and Amalia, 5, with husband Benjamin Millepied. Bale shares daughter Emmeline Bale, 17, and son Joseph, 7, with wife Sibi Blazic. Waititi shares daughters Te Kāinga o te Hinekāhu, 10, and Matewa Kiritapu, 6, with ex Chelsea Wistanley.

“I love the idea that my kids can look back on that moment and say, oh wow, we were there. There’s a record of it,” Waititi pointed out.

However, the God of Thunder actor said it was a “once in a lifetime” experience, although the ending clearly leaves room for Love’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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

Apparently the kids were the reason Thor: Love and Thunder has such a powerhouse cast. Portman, 41, hasn’t played Jane Foster since Thor: The Dark World in 2014, and she returned because her little ones love Marvel.

“I feel like this is the phase of my career where I’m really trying to impress my kids,” she said diversity Last month. “My 5 year old and 10 year old were so excited about this process to visit the set and see me in a cape. It made it really cool. You know, it’s very rare that my kids say, ‘Please go to work!’ It’s usually just the opposite.”

Bale echoed the sentiment in June when he recalled telling his family he probably wouldn’t be taking on 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,’ and they said, ‘No, you make it work. You do it, dad.’ They gave me my marching orders and I dutifully obeyed,” he said ScreenRant back then.

Thor: Love and Thunder is now in cinemas.
