The Australian Federal Government is hoping an improved rebate scheme will lure more Hollywood productions like Thor: Ragnarok to their country.

Chris Hemsworth may have officially shot his last scenes as Thor, but the Aussie actor has revealed he and Ragnarok director Taika Waititi have discussed ideas for another adventure.

The 34-year-old Hemsworth is officially off-contract as the Norse God after the release of Avengers 4 in the first-half of 2019, however he has admitted that he and the Kiwi helmer spent New Year's Eve together visualising a Thor 4.

"We gave cheers ... a few times," Hemsworth told USA Today. "To Thor 3, but it also was like, 'What could we do with four? We could do this and this'. We were throwing ideas around.

"I felt like we re-invented him," he said of the character. "There is a bigger platform now to continue if we want to."

Thor: Ragnarok was the seventh-biggest movie in North America last year.

Hemsworth told USA Today he'd discussed the idea of him continuing as Thor with Marvel president Kevin Feige during the back-to-back filming of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

"[Feige] said, 'Look, we just have to concentrate on [Avengers] now,'" says Hemsworth. "So who knows? There are 76 cast members in these two Avengers films. They will be the biggest films of all time, far bigger than my character. It's a conversation for further down the road, if it was going to happen."

He admitted that finishing up as Thor was "a scary thought". 

"This really seemed like this never-ending thing. And now it's potentially finishing."
