They took a punt on Hemsworth with this and I think they did good. Top stuff ED.

@Sweep: honestly not trying to be a smart@ss, but I was wondering what "took a punt" meant. I assume its taking a chance, but is that a rugby reference or something?

Did you ask him if Portman polished his hammer?
captainbeta - 3/8/2011, 6:09 AM
His modesty is refreshing. I look forward to seeing him in future movies.

lol his voice is too deep for the audio, i got most of it tho, Chris is gonna do great as thor i believe. From what Ive seen he has the voice, the warrior type attitude, and the jerk like(pre-earth) qualities of thor!I hope this film does great. it'll kick off his career and give us sequals!
Sweep - 3/8/2011, 6:13 AM
j0hnb1aze@ Yeah it means to take a chance. Depends where you come from though. Obviously if you punt something - you kick it. It happens in American Football I believe.

But where I come from, "taking a punt" or "having a punt" means to gamble. Hope that clears it up.

Chis Hemsworth isn't a very good interview giver. He gave squirrelly answers compared to the responses given by Evans and Brannagh.

lets hope marvel sign branagh on for at least two more thor films.

@ ed gross

well done,mate.

Great stuff Ed! If DC's Green Lantern is the Star Wars of CBMs, maybe Marvel's Thor will be the Lord of the Rings of CBMs!

OH MY ODIN! I'm so ready for this movie!
JonStarkgaryen - 3/8/2011, 7:51 AM
@Sweep, cool man, I figured as much. Wheverever you're from, or however you want to say it, I think Hemsworth was a great casting! Can't wait for this summer movie season....
HelaGood - 3/8/2011, 8:24 AM
this is going to be HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
valeriesghost - 3/8/2011, 9:12 AM
@sweep, its interesting that where you're from "taking a punt" is a gamble. Here with american football, taking the punt is really the safe thing to do. But i agree, it was a gamble and i really think they got it spot on :)
BatLantern - 3/8/2011, 9:21 AM
I have to take a punt right now..afk
moneybanks - 3/8/2011, 10:59 AM
YO ED...(Cool name btw)!!

Anyway did you do the podcast for heroes when it was going on? You sound exactly like one of the the guys that hosted it??

Anyway..i think we can all say without any hint of gayness(unless thats your disposition) that we're all pretty hot for the thor movie right now...am i right? am i right? This^ guy knows.

Lates y'all
BlacktainAmerica - 3/8/2011, 11:33 AM

Cyanide - 3/8/2011, 11:53 AM

I'm SO looking forward to that movie!! Can't wait til May to watch it over here...

EdGross - 3/8/2011, 2:23 PM
Thanks, all. Glad you're enjoying these. I'm really having a great time speaking to everyone.

And, moneybanks, that was NOT me on the Heroes podcasts.
Superbatprime - 3/8/2011, 2:33 PM
I remember him when he was starting out in an australian soap opera called Home and Away lol.

Just like Isla Fisher.
Prrrick - 3/8/2011, 8:17 PM
...and probably Australian.
webslinger13 - 3/9/2011, 12:50 AM
AUSTRALIA REPRESENT!
btw, @SuspenseSmith, the other guy is his brother liam.
webslinger13 - 3/9/2011, 12:51 AM
wait, unless you meant the guy he was fighting..

I am a little afraid they will underplay the importance of Mjolnir in the movie. Maybe that's just me, though.
