‘Avengers’ Heroes All Have ‘Big Egos,’ Chris Hemsworth Says

After debuting to a raucous crowd at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, the key players comprising “The Avengers” gang are now set.

The costume looks amazing. How did it look when you first tried it on? What did you think?

Chris Hemsworth: “Oh, it was crazy. I remember the first camera test and putting it on and going, ‘Oh my god,’ and then everyone who came and looked at it was like, ‘Wow, this is a monumental sort of moment.’ And standing in it was a very odd experience, you know? But it was beautiful. I mean, Alex Byrne designed the costume and they spent I think almost two years kind of leading up and building that thing and setting it up. It really paid off. The thing is incredible. It’s not very comfortable, but…”
