“Thor is Fantastic!” Says Hemsworth

This year’s buzz word when any actor is involved with a project and someone asks them about it is: Fantastic! This summer, there are two dozen highly anticipated superhero related projects either hitting the big screen or going into production. And all we know about them is that they are “fantastic”. Chris Hemsworth is the latest to use this all-encompassing praise. He has just seen Thor in its entirety. And you guessed it. He thinks the movie is “fantastic!”

Here is what he had to say about sitting down to watch one of this summer’s biggest potential blockbusters.

“I have [seen ‘Thor’], yeah. It’s fantastic. Being that close to something, it’s often pretty hard to watch yourself, but the film in so many ways is so impressive that I was swept along with it like an audience member, and that’s a pretty good sign.”

The actor also spoke more about having to carry the weight of this iconic Marvel franchise squarely on his own shoulders.

“Literally, the costume weighed god-knows-how-many pounds. It was heavy. And this is a character who has a ton of history – 40 or 50 years’ worth – and a built-in fanbase. He’s a god and a lot of other things that become overwhelming. At the same time, it’s a dream. As a kid, you run around the house pretending to be a superhero, and now to be doing it as a job, I feel very lucky.”

Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Fun Fearless Males of 2011

On March 7th, Chris attended Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Fun Fearless Males of 2011! He was photographed alongside actor, Penn Badgley. Being that the night’s honorees were being lauded for being both playful and bold, MTV News decided to have them weigh in on the not-so-age-old question: Are you more fun or more fearless?

Chris Hemsworth, assessed himself like so: “Probably more foolish. It’s a fine line, isn’t it? Depends on whose observing and making that assessment. I think it’s a gray area. I’d like to think a bit of both. For me, it’s about having the courage to live in the moment.”

So, was the Aussie actor’s brother, fellow hottie Liam Hemsworth, upset at all that he didn’t get honored, as well? “No, he’s the fun, fearless one at home so he takes that title and holds it quite high,” Chris teased.

Has a Teaser Trailer Been Shot for “The Avengers?”

Director Joss Whedon and his band of heroes, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) , Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) will not be going into production on Marvel Studios‘ forthcoming team-up film, The Avengers until April.

Now, reports claim that Marvel has already cut a secret teaser trailer for the movie, which could be seen this summer before Thor or Captain America: The First Avenger. AICN reports that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is featured in that teaser trailer, and LatinoReview reaffirms that Loki will return in “The Avengers” as the main villain, and adds that he will use the “cosmic cube” from Captain America: The First Avenger to summon The Skrulls to invade Earth and battle The Avengers.

Although these reports are plausible, and the info is from reliable folks, all of this should probably be considered rumor for now. If it is all true, what do you think? Let me know in the comments.

The Avengers is slated to hit theaters on May 4th, 2012. (Source)

Jeremy Renner Talks “Avengers” and Possible “Thor” Cameo

With The Avengers hitting theaters in 2012, all eyes are on Marvel’s heroes as we get closer to the day when Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and a host of other comic book characters (and the actors who play them) will appear together on the same screen.

One of the superheroes who won’t be debuting in his own solo movie is Clint Barton, the expert archer known as Hawkeye. Played by “Hurt Locker” actor Jeremy Renner, Hawkeye will likely make his official debut in “The Avengers” — though recent rumors have pegged him for a cameo in “Thor.”

MTV News caught up with Renner on the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards and pressed him for details about his debut as the bow-wielding marksman.

“Yes, I have [read the ‘Avengers’ script],” Renner said. “It’s tremendous. I can’t tell you anything about it.”

Calling the film a “massive undertaking,” Renner praised the ambition of “Avengers” director Joss Whedon, who’s tasked with putting all of Marvel’s biggest stars in the same film and making sure there’s enough spotlight to go around.

“He [will need to] pull all of those characters off and have it make sense,” the actor said.

Little is known about the plot of “Avengers” at this point, other than that it will bring together a long list of high-profile actors and the larger-than-life characters they play in Marvel’s movie universe. During last year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Marvel unveiled the core “Avengers” cast of Renner, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Clark Gregg (S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson).

In order to prepare for the role, Renner said archery lessons are indeed on his to-do list — though he has yet to see the costume he’ll don as Hawkeye.

As for that rumor about Hawkeye making a cameo in “Thor,” Renner would neither confirm nor deny the possibility of fans getting an early peek at his take on the Avengers’ marksman.

“I might [have a cameo in ‘Thor’],” he teased. “Go see it. Check it out.”
