Chris Hemsworth is ready to take on the Incredible Hulk.
The Thor: Ragnarok star took ET on-set of his latest Marvel movie, filming in Australia, where he confessed that an epic battle between the titular character and the angry green hero (played by Mark Ruffalo) is what he’s looking forward to the most.
“Before [the fight] was written in the script, [the movie] was centered around it,” the 34-year-old actor explained. “And I thought, ‘Whoa I’m in!’”
During the visit, Hemsworth also explained why Thor lost his long, golden locks in the upcoming film — a decision he admits was made due to wardrobe rather than the storyline.
“He does get a hair cut,” the Australia native shared. “There’s no huge explanation, really. It’s just me going, ‘I don’t wanna wear the wig every day.’ It takes 2 hours to put on!”
“We kind of just run with the creative license there,” he added. “Give you a different look, you know?”
Chris Hemsworth has been bringing Thor to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011 and with Thor: Ragnarok headed to theaters in November and the third and fourth Avengers installments on the horizon, Hemsworth is opening up about his one critique about filming.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Hemsworth revealed making the Avengers films has been an impersonal experience, largely because of the number of characters in the films. This impersonal nature of making the Avengers films made the experience of getting one-on-one screen time with Mark Ruffalo who plays Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok a more enjoyable situation for Hemsworth. The two characters had previously had very few interactions on screen, giving Hemsworth and Ruffalo a chance to really dig into their relationship.
“The Avengers stuff is hard because it’s not very personal. There’s seven of you in a room and you have to get across all this information that feels expositional. So it’s hard to really have a dynamic. Obviously Tony and Cap have a lot of one-on-one screen time.
I’d always felt like I don’t have that as much, and that’s when you get to really have fun. As I said, we just went for it in this, and there’s a nice kind of love-hate relationship there. A lovely kind of pairing. Very early on I was saying, “Let’s do something like Butch and Sundance and pair ‘em up and go on a road trip. There’s elements of that in there, too.”
The Infinity Stones have become very important to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the build up to Avengers: Infinity War, but fans aren’t alone in their confusion about the all-important cosmic remnants. Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth doesn’t get it, either.
During a set visit the actor said that while Thor: Ragnarok connects to Avengers: Infinity War, they didn’t want to get too stuck dealing with the Infinity Stones.
“We didn’t wanna get bogged down in Infinity Stones and da-da-da-da, because I don’t even understand that stuff a lot of the time,” Hemsworth said.
“Without giving anything away [Thor: Ragnarok] definitely bleeds nicely into [Avengers: Infinity War,] as they all tend to do,” Hemsworth explained. “This being called Ragnarok, which everyone knows what that means, it obviously is gonna effect the larger universe.”
Hemsworth not having a full understanding of the Infinity Stones is humorous largely because of how involved with trying to understand them Thor is. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor left Earth to find out more about the mysterious objects of Thanos’ desire. However, even with Hemsworth being confused about the Stones, the events of Thor: Ragnarok will be very important to the next Avengers installment even though the actor stops short of revealing if we’ll see the Soul Stone anytime soon.

Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges are in negotiations to star in the Fox thriller Bad Times at the El Royale, with Drew Goddard directing from his own script.
Should the deals close, the actors would be the first attached to the project, which is expected to begin shooting early next year. Fox has kept details about “Bad Times” under wraps other than it being set in the 196os at a dilapidated hotel in California’s Lake Tahoe region. Bridges would play a down-on-his-luck priest.
Goddard is also set to produce the movie. He received an Academy Award nomination last year for best adapted screenplay for The Martian, which was adapted from the Andy Weir novel. (Source)
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Reveals His Favourite Movie Of 2017
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)
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “Thor: Ragnarok” Leads Social Media Buzz Thanks to Comic-Con
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)

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on San Diego Comic-Con 2017: What to Expect
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)
