More From Chris Hemsworth On Hawkeye's Thor Cameo, Taking On The Hulk In The Avengers And More!

MTV News didnt have a transcript with the interview, so just in case you're unable to view this video, here is my own quick version of what the actor had to say when quizzed about The Avengers at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

On Whether He's Got To Know His Fellow Avengers Any Better Since Comic Con:

"We all met at Comic Con and had very brief, sort of in amongst the madness, introductions and then since then I saw Chris Evans at the Globes, and Robert Downey Jr, and we had a brief chat about it but we're yet to sit down as a group."


On What He Thought About The Script For The Avengers:

"I saw a very early draft and it's incredible."


On What To Expect From The Movie And How It Will Live Up To Fan Expectations:

"Everything about the story and comic books is huge. You have these huge big superheroes, and huge big egos crammed into one small space,Reading the script, it was just massice. Everything about it was like, "Oh my God." I said to Joss I have no idea how you're going to shoot thing thing, but I'm excited to be on board!"


On Whether We'll See The Heroes Come To Blows, And Who Thor Is Most Likely To Clash With:

"There's plenty of friction. In the comic books, him and Hulk have their fair share of tangles..."


On Whether He's Able To Confirm That Hawkeye Has A Cameo In Thor:

"Maybe, I dunno...I can't deny anything!"


On Whether He's Seen Jeremy Renner In Costume Yet:

"No I havent."


On Whether He Met With Renner On The Set Of Thor Suring Filming:

I don't know if he's in Thor. I havent seen the cut yet. He wasnt on the set when I was there, but might be in the final one. He'll certaintly be in The Avengers. I had a chat with him at Comic Con, and he's as excited as the rest of us."


Thanks to SpiderMedia's RealIrOnMaN for the heads up!

Thor is set to be released in the UK on April 29, with a May 6 release date for the US. The Avengers is currently expected to follow less than a year later on May 4, 2012!

Thor vs. Hulk in live action?!
I can't wait for The Avengers to come out. At all.
Havok89 - 1/23/2011, 6:20 AM
I would like to see Hawkeye cameo as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who takes down Thor after Thor unsuccessfully tries to retrieve mjolnir.
dickmastaflex - 1/23/2011, 6:35 AM
cool i got a feeling there gonna try to use just thor to take down the hulk and then relize they need more help
dickmastaflex - 1/23/2011, 6:37 AM
i was just thinking last night on what i thought the end credit would be for thor,will it be someone finding cap in ice, loki taking over the hulk, hawkeye, maybe even hugo weaving looking for the cube theres so many options
dickmastaflex - 1/23/2011, 6:37 AM
will it be a cut scene to start avengers or cap
marvel72 - 1/23/2011, 6:47 AM
thor vs the hulk,could be the best comic book movie fight ever.

it has to happen,marvel studios shouldn't make the same mistake as x-men 3 i.e having colossus & the juggernaunt in the film & not have them fight each other.
antz1104 - 1/23/2011, 7:02 AM
I really hope they go the route of The Avengers animated movie a few years back and have an epic Hulk vs. The Avengers battle at the end.
Xandera - 1/23/2011, 7:19 AM
Sounds Friggin Awesome!!!!
InFamouslyCool - 1/23/2011, 7:22 AM
i'm more excited about hawkeye than i am thor.
genesis609 - 1/23/2011, 7:29 AM
ALL I KNOW IS ROBERY DOWNEY BETTER USE THAT AMERICAN GLADIATOR LINE ON THOR LOL!! WHEN THEY FIRST MEET HE SAYS "HEY DIDNT I SEE YOU ON AMERICAN GLADIATORS?" i would be on the floor with that one
zachman2013 - 1/23/2011, 7:33 AM
i cant wait for this.its so epic sounding...i wonder if robby dj. will have a old people joke for captain america?
GUNSMITH - 1/23/2011, 7:44 AM
WHICH COSTUME? IM THINKING IF THEY'RE GOING THE ULTIMATES ROUTE..THE ONE ON THE RIGHT.

---------616------------------ ULTIMATES------

SpideyQuad - 1/23/2011, 8:03 AM
@Gunsmith

Man, the picture on the left proves Hawkeye could look badass in his 616 costume! Either one looks uber-cool, but I'm partial to 616 universe.
Timerider84 - 1/23/2011, 8:05 AM
You really think he would have that ridiculous mask on in a movie such as this? They want to see the actor's face on film, not a mask. Why do you think they show Robert Downey Jr. inside the mask or his face plate open all the time. You have to see their emotions in their faces. You can't do that behind a mask covering 3/4 of your face, that looks absolutely ridiculous in the Marvel universe that they have created here on film.

The one on the right, tweeked a bit though.
odinson11 - 1/23/2011, 8:21 AM
DoubleD Thor has whooped the hulk several times in the comics without the help of the avengers.
Ryguy88 - 1/23/2011, 8:26 AM
Hey! Joss Whedon did Buffy, Buffy is about a bunch of teeny vampires! Sounds like (frick)ing Twilight! (Frick) the Avengers! They're not getting any money from me!
LEEE777 - 1/23/2011, 8:29 AM
GUN @ [frick] Ultimates its called AVENGERS!!! : p

Epic 616 costume!

Damn, HAWKEYE seems more at home in Iron Man 2 than Thor?

Cool though and epic @ JOSH!

Movie is going to set the bar again!

EPIC!
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2011, 8:31 AM
@Timerider00

I'm serious, I like it and I don't need to see the actors face the entire movie. I'm not going to see the actor. How much of Hawkeye's (for example) face to you see in a single comic. Your example is tiresome, unoriginal, and only somes opinion.
Adam West's whole face was hardly ever exposed as Batman. That didn't effect that show.
Flick you, I want my characters, not the actors. They're paid to portray them.

Singer was wrong, viewers understand this is F-A-N-T-S-E-Y
It's a chance to escape REALITY for a few hours.

I understand the colors may need to be tweked. All form fitting spandex won't work. But don't tell me the picture on the left can't work, because your wrong, it works right here before your eyes.

Don't be mindless. Think your self.
odinson11 - 1/23/2011, 8:38 AM
The hulk/loki thing should not be the main villians, that would be a good reason to have the team form but the main villain should be a bigger threat than the hulk. I would like to see thanos or kang
dcanty49 - 1/23/2011, 8:47 AM
I dont believe Hawkeye will make a cameoo
soforizo - 1/23/2011, 8:48 AM
Love the 616 costume, but it just don't look right for live action.
sexfoodcomics - 1/23/2011, 8:52 AM
hawkeye is in Thor , i have seen it, unless they cut it fro the final film and put it on the dvd.
sexfoodcomics - 1/23/2011, 9:00 AM
@Havok89 hahaha, you have seen it too?
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 1/23/2011, 9:00 AM
"him and Hulk have their fair share of tangles..."

Hulk and Thor playing Twister?
thunderforce - 1/23/2011, 9:02 AM
Hulk vs Thor in 3d = fantastic and it will end in a tie .
WhiteDragon66 - 1/23/2011, 9:02 AM
Hey guys im new here heard a lot of good things bout this page and im pretty pissed off at the LAME ass adaptations to my fave characters begining with Deadpool, Xmen, Daredevil, and believe it or not the big blue baffoon (superman) etc FOX sux, and Marvel needs to get back all their properties back Spidey 1 and 2 were good the 3rd was a mess although Sandman was cool. Iron Man 1 was excellent the 2nd felt rushed. Lookin forward to Green Lantern, Thor, and Captain America. juries out on transformers 3 not too sure
dahamma - 1/23/2011, 9:04 AM
DANG IT LET IT BE MAY 6TH ALREADY!!! I believe this guy is gonna make Thor , literally. Its gonna be awesome. ANd HECK YES to a THor Vs Hulk fight!! With plenty of property damage!!! :D
ezio619 - 1/23/2011, 9:58 AM
looks like Chris is growing his hair out for Thor again
croniccris - 1/23/2011, 10:14 AM
thor vs. hulk = epic win!

Vital - 1/23/2011, 10:16 AM
I'm glad they picked Chris for Thor, he's just a good guy who deserves the role. Look how he handles himself in an interview, he speaks clearly, knows what he is talking about, relates to fans, and gives us info every once in a while. I love it. Mr. Vaughn needs to take notes lol.
Dusk - 1/23/2011, 10:24 AM
@GUNSMITH- I really like the look of the Hawkeye on the right! I could definitely live with that!
