THOR Star Chris Hemsworth Will Play Hulk Hogan In A Netflix Biopic From JOKER Director Todd Philips

Lemme tell ya something, brother! Avengers: Endgame star Chris Hemsworth is swapping the cape for a pair of tights as he "Hulks up" to play arguably the most famous pro-wrestler on the planet, Hulk Hogan.

We didn't even know there was a Hulk Hogan biopic in the works, but THR has just announced that none other than Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame, the Thor movies) is going to play the legendary wrestling Superstar.

The Netflix original project will be helmed by Joker director Todd Philips, who will also produce alongside Hemsworth, Michael Sugar, Bradley Cooper, and former WCW promoter Eric Bischoff.

Hogan, real name Terry Gene Bollea, is easily the most recognizable pro-wrestler on the planet, and was the face of WWE (then WWF) for many years. His likeness has appeared on everything from lunch boxes to condoms (yes, really), and he's also featured in movies, animated series and comic books.

Recently, Hogan became the source of a lot of controversy after he appeared on a sex tape with his friend's wife, using the N-word to describe his daughter's boyfriend (again, yes, really). However, this film is not expected to delve into any of that, and will instead be an origin story focusing on Hogan's rise to prominence.

What do you guys think about this casting news? Is a Hulkster biopic something you'd be interested in seeing? Sound off below.
