2017 is more than halfway over, and the year has provided comic book junkies with a slew of great films. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 kicked the year off right before Wonder Woman broke records in June. In a few months, Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters, but its star had trouble hyping the Marvel movie recently because he just couldn’t get over Wonder Woman.
During an interview with MTV at San Diego Comic Con, Chris Hemsworth nodded to Hollywood and the number of actors named Chris. Wonder Woman had its own thanks to Chris pine, and the Thor star used the segue to gush over the DC film.
“I have such love and admiration for all Chris’ on the planet — and all superheroes, including Wonder Woman.” Hemsworth admitted.
“I think it’s my favorite film this year. They did such a good job. We’re gonna make more, but it’s OK. It’s not a competition, it’s all love.”
This isn’t the first time Hemsworth has publicly backed Wonder Woman. Shortly after the film debuted, Gal Gadot did an interview with Yahoo News, and the actress had this to say: “They ask me who would win, Wonder Woman or Thor. And I think it’s Wonder Woman. Don’t you, Chris?”
Unsurprisingly, Hemsworth felt the same. “I think she’d kick Thor’s a**,” the actor responded. (Source)
Disney-Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok dominated social media buzz with an impressive 264,000 new conversations last week, according to media-measurement firm ComScore and its PreAct service.
Marvel released a new full trailer featuring both Thor and Hulk at the Marvel showcase at San Diego Comic-Con on July 22. Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled for release on November 3rd.
“Hunt for the Wilderpeople” helmer Taika Waititi directed the third standalone Thor movie, which seems to be quirkier and more offbeat than the first two, and is already drawing comparisons to “Guardians of the Galaxy.” “Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleton, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and Anthony Hopkins.
Disney-Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War generated 90,000 new conversations following the unveiling of a new poster at the Marvel showcase at Comic-Con on July 22, which fans have recorded on their phones and leaked the footage. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens May 18, 2018. (Source)
The cast and filmmakers from Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok took to the convention floor at the San Diego Comic Con 2017 to meet fans and sign autographs. Below is a video of Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth and (his friend from work) Mark Ruffalo greeting fans. Footage from the meet and greet begins around the 1:56 mark, take a look below:
It’s that time of year when the biggest studios bring actors, directors and writers from their most anticipated blockbusters to tens of thousands of fans at San Diego Comic-Con.
None are as prominent as Marvel Studios. Marvel Entertainment, in general, has always dominated SDCC, but it’s the company’s studio division that has reinvigorated fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This year should be the same.
The question is what Marvel Studios plans to bring to SDCC. Speculation?
The Avengers: Infinity War | D23 attendees saw the first Infinity War trailer, and while there’s a very good chance it will be shown again to Hall H attendees at SDCC, don’t expect it to go online anytime soon. Marvel is notorious for not publishing its trailers online, instead keeping them exclusive to conventions.
Thor: Ragnarok | Don’t expect Ragnarok to take up much of Marvel’s panel as the release is right around the corner, so it doesn’t need as much hyping up as other projects. However, there will be a “Thor: Ragnarok” SDCC presence — Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and maybe even Jeff Goldblum will all be on hand.
Fans can also expect Captain Marvel, Black Panther and possibly Antman and the Wasp goodies.
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Shares His ‘007’ Casting Opinion
While all eyes are on Daniel Craig as he reportedly mulls over returning as James Bond, Chris Hemsworth has an idea for his replacement should he not reprise his role as 007.
Hemsworth tells W magazine his Snow White And The Huntsman co-star Charlize Theron fits the bill because, “she scares the Hell out of me and I think she can beat me up [better than] most villains out there.”
The actor was in awe of Theron on Snow White, watching her tackle complex choreographed fight scenes with ease, even in a long gown and high heels.
“Watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels, by the way, and an 8-foot long gown was even more impressive,” he says, calling her, “Smart as Hell.”
“She embodies every sort of ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that that character should have,” he says. “Why not? It’s time.” (Source)
When Entertainment Tonight caught up with the 41-year-old actress at the premiere of her new movie, Atomic Blonde, in Berlin, Germany, Charlize joked that she paid Hemsworth for the compliment.
“Chris – so, you got that check I sent you?” Theron joked. “Thanks, dude. I got your back.”
“Oh wow,” she continued, on a more serious note. “That’s so insanely generous and nice. I don’t even know what to do with that. That’s really sweet.” (Source)

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Lends His Voice to Children’s App “The Big Tree”
Chris has given his voice to a new children’s app that uses narratives and games to teach young children problem solving strategies and calming techniques.
The Australian Childhood Foundation launched the new BIG TREE APP, which also features the voices of his mother, Leonie Hemsworth, and Nadine Garner.
The app was originally developed for children suffering from trauma, but is appropriate for all children under eight years of age.
“Research tells us that all children need a strong sense of belonging and connection with carers and family to develop important regulation as they grow up, Australian Childhood Foundation CEO Dr Joe Tucci said. “The central stories about trust, respect and love show children that challenges can be overcome and that seeking out people who care about you when you are unhappy, stressed or confused can help you feel calmer.”
The app incorporates four core narratives featuring four main characters: Morten the Monster (voice of Chris Hemsworth), Ellen the Caterpillar (voice of Leonie Hemsworth), Ollie the Monkey (voice of Chris Hemsworth) and Sleepy Susan the Cat (voice of Nadine Garner).
Each of the characters helps children to consider the emotions and thoughts associated with challenges that come to be resolved through the support of friends.
The app even teaches young children breathing relaxation techniques and has playful activities that can be shared with parents of carers. (Source)
Actors Chris Hemsworth, Diego Luna, Nashla Bogaer and pro surfer Ramon Navarro teamed up for an unconventional beer ad. The four celebrities joined Corona and Parley AIR in their newest long-term initiative to end plastic pollution, which is detrimental to the world’s oceans.
The two companies plan to “protect 100 Islands by 2020 starting in six key regions in different parts of the world – Mexico, Maldives, Australia, Chile, Italy and Dominican Republic,” as they announced in a statement. In the next three years, they intend to have cleaner oceans and beaches.
The four celebrities shared social media posts in support of their new partnership and also starred in the powerful video released by Corona x Parley.
“When you picture beautiful islands and other beach destinations, you imagine them in their pristine state with clear blue waters, but then you see the problem up close and you realize that we are destroying paradise through our careless use of plastic,” said Luna. I’m particularly proud to be affiliated with a program that is not only committed to protecting beaches around the world, but also in my homeland Mexico.”
Hemsworth added, “I’ve spent a large part of my life in and around the ocean, it’s where a lot of my happiest memories came from. If I had anxieties or worries, I’d head to the ocean and it was always the place where I could reset and be 100% present. I want to inspire people to find a solution and protect the world’s oceans so future generations can enjoy them like I do.”
