Does Thor fight Loki? “Thor” and future “Avengers” star Chris Hemsworth dropped a lot of headline-worthy news on us when he stopped by MTV’s Comic-Con live stream last weekend. He talked about landing the role of the God of Thunder, how he felt naked without his famous hammer and how Mike Tyson inspired his fighting style for the film.
With regard to that extensive training, one big question on fans’ minds is: Will Thor and his ever-envious adopted brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, come to blows in the film? Hemsworth spoke to that issue, and the short answer is “yes.” But the long answer includes Hemsworth’s playful retelling of shooting one of Thor and Loki’s pivotal action scenes.

Chris Hemsworth is no stranger to TV and film â€” he appeared in last summer’s mega-hit “Star Trek” â€” but in tackling the starring role in Marvel’s 2011 superhero film “Thor,” the 26-year-old enters a whole new category of leading man. When MTV News caught up with Hemsworth, he revealed that “Thor” director Kenneth Branagh had helped in his superhero education by giving him some pre-shoot homework.

After debuting to a raucous crowd at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, the key players comprising “The Avengers” gang are now set. What’s not yet clear is which of the superheroes in this Marvel all-star team will assume the leadership role.

They say that the clothes make the man, but in playing Thor, the clothes aren’t enough for actor Chris Hemsworth. He also needs a hammer.
Hemsworth stars in the title role of director Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor,” the upcoming adaptation of the thunder-cracking Marvel Comics character. Naturally, every superhero features an iconic accessory â€” Captain America has his star-spangled shield, for instance, while Iron Man has his sophisticated suits of high-tech armor â€” and in Thor’s case, he’s got the mighty hammer Mjolnir at his disposal.
