In the upcoming part of Star Trek, which is set to be released in 2023, the character Captain James Tiberius Kirk (played by Chris Pine) will come across another character that he never got a chance to cross paths with, but the legacy of that man has chased his memories as long as he can remember. That man is his father George Kirk (played by Chris Hemsworth), who made his appearance in the Star Trek movie back in 2009 and will be back once again in the franchise as George Kirk.

Is Chris Hemsworth Going to be Back in Star Trek 4?

Presently, Chris Hemsworth is seen as carrying out his role in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder with Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, and Chris Pratt and in some few other movies back-to-back. He is represented by CAA and ROAR. The main producer Paramount has made its intention very clear that the director of the previous movie Justin Lin will not be added to the crew of the upcoming Star Trek 4 and Noah Hawley will replace him. The scheduled release date for the fourth installment is set for 9th June of 2023.

The first part of this new franchise of Star Trek, the Star Trek of 2009 was the actual stepping stone for Chris Hemsworth in the future debut in the Star Trek franchise. He was widely known earlier for his role as Kim Hyde on a TV series of Australia named ‘Home and Away.’ But on the other hand, as the character Chris Hemsworth is reprising, George Kirk dies at the first installment (at the starting of the first part), we can’t tell for sure how he will appear as the father of Captain Kirk and how they will reunite. You also cannot know how the death of Anton Yelchin will be adjusted In the upcoming sequel.
