Chris Hemsworth Talks THE AVENGERS, Praises Joss Whedon And More!
The Aussie actor behind Marvel's God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth, discusses Thor's contribution to The Avengers' story, comments on his new altered costume and more!
Conducted while filming for Marvel's The Avengers was underway, immediately prior to filming an action scene, Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth discussed his godly reprisal as 'Thor,' with FilmInk. Dotting on the Mighty Avenger's contribution to the story and Joss Whedon's "impressive" directorship, read on below!
"This movie is much more of an ensemble piece than Thor, obviously," the actor says. "It's been a trip. In a strange way, Thor finally fits in because he's not the only guy dressed up in a strange costume." And speaking of costumes, Hemsworth smiles saying, "This time it's sleeveless, so it's more of a summer number," he laughs.
Rehashing on Thor's contribution to the story, he says "Thor has more of a personal investment. It's not just some bad guy that he's gotta take care of; for him, it's family. There's a sense of,'I'll beat him up and teach him a lesson, not you guys.' It's the first time in ages since he's seen his brother, and it's amongst all this chaos."
"I'm hugely impressed with how Joss Whedon has worked all these characters into the story. I was asking myself, 'How is it going to work?' But Joss is a genius in the way that he's written this. All the characters get their time, and it ends up being a very iconic collaboration. We've watched these characters grow individually on screen, and to see them come together is really exciting."
Marvel's The Avengers is the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner with Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel's The Avengers will be released May 4, 2012.
