Chris Briefly Mentions “The Avengers”

The MTV website had a short interview with actor Chris Hemsworth, who plays the title character in next month’s Thor and reprises the role for next year’s blockbuster, The Avengers. In this excerpt from the website, Hemsworth says that, despite it being a team movie, you can expect to see Thor and his teammates each get their own moments of glory:

As part of an all-star cast, it’s easy to imagine certain Avengers clocking more screen time than others. According to Hemsworth, however, each of the team’s heroes will get ample time to shine.

“Everyone really does get a go and I think Joss has done an incredible job of throwing it together and making sure that happens,” said Hemsworth.

Chris Talks About the “Thor” Fans, Costumes and Set Design

Americans get to first see Thor on May 6, but lucky Australians only have to wait till April 21 for the premiere. Maybe that’s why actor Chris Hemsworth spoke with GQ Australia to discuss the Norse-inspired movie.

ComicBookMovie reported on some of Hemsworth’s answers.

“I did Comic-Con and there were 7000 people,” he divulged. “I got a real sense of the fan base that Thor has and the buzz around it. You’re plugging away, you’re auditioning and your fingers are crossed. Then you get the part, sign the contract and start to realise millions of people follow this guy and know more about your character than you do.”

Hemsworth had to learn about “Thor” fast, but he had help getting in character from the great sets.

“We were lucky in that they had actually built most of the sets,” he said. “It’s easier having this big fantasy world around you than if there was just a green screen. It was like being a kid playing dress-ups. You do feel like you are this guy — especially with the costume. The first day I put it on, [Anthony] Hopkins looked at me and looked at both of us, and said, ‘No acting required here.’”

Well aware of how big the “Thor” universe is, the actor said, “It’s existed for 50 years or something and all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Oh [frick], there’s a lot of people waiting here to say that’s right, or that’s wrong.’” And that’s not even counting how old the original stories about Thor are.

Chris Hemsworth as Katniss Everdeen?

While talking up Thor with MTV News, Chris Hemsworth made an admission that will make your imagination explode. To help his brother Liam audition for the role of Gale in The Hunger Games, he ran lines with him … reading the part of the heroine, Katniss Everdeen.

Obviously, Chris was an asset since Liam got the part. Perhaps director Gary Ross wants to rethink hiring Jennifer Lawrence for the part when there’s another good-looking blonde who knows the lines? (Source)

Details Spill of Hawkeye’s Costume

For years, Marvel has had the habit of seeding their movies with teases to other upcoming film projects — and it looks like this summer’s Thor is no different. Who better to go up against a demigod with a magical hammer than… an archer?!

During a presentation by Walt Disney Pictures today at the theater owners’ event CinemaCon, attendees were surprised when the House of Mouse showed a sizzle reel with footage from Marvel movies past, present and future. Amongst the moving pictures on display was new footage from “Thor,” including an eye-opening shot of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

“Basically, Hawkeye’s costume is going to be very similar to the Ultimates version of the character,” reported ComingSoon.net. “In the concept art, we see Renner wearing similar dark glasses and a leather outfit with a matching over-the-shoulder leather quill for his arrows, only the movie version of Hawkeye has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo emblazoned on it to show his government allegiances.”

Back in February, MTV News interviewed Renner on the Oscars red carpet in which the actor talked about the Avengers script and Hawkeye’s costume.

Other footage shown at CinemaCon featured Thor smashing his hammer to the ground and “causing waves of destruction,” and what is speculated to be pre-visualization animatics for “The Avengers” movie.

The footage also included a brief interview with actor Mark Ruffalo talking about his role as the Hulk in “The Avengers,” saying that his character was “definitely” going to be a hero rather than the rampaging catalyst as seen in the inaugural “Avengers” comic. (Source)

Chris Appears in Flaunt Magazine

JustJared.com posted a snippet from Flaunt magazine featuring Chris Hemsworth wearing a wet white shirt in the latest spread. Here’s what the 27-year-old Aussie actor had to share:

On his upcoming action flick Thor: “My hope is that [the movie] is an intelligent blockbuster. The ones that work are … One thing I took from it is how much life was influenced by fate and how that motivated Thor’s fearlessness as a warrior.”

Co-star Natalie Portman on Chris: “I think the craziest day was when we flew together and they harnessed us attached to each other and we were up a 100 feet in the air with no safety mat. It was nice to have someone up there with me who was so lovely and calming.”

On moving to California from Australia: “I live in Santa Monica where there’s more space, and I surf a lot, train a lot, read books, and try to have a life outside the business. From time to time I miss being [in Australia].”
