Chris Hemsworth Talks THOR Approach, Experience, and Preparation!

Coming from a new interview with SFX Magazine, leading THOR actor Chris Hemsworth speaks out on his godly approach, the experience, as well preparation for Marvel's new adaption. Check it Out!



Inside a new issue of SFX Magazine, courtesy of good friend RealIronMan of SpiderMedia, with assistance from another amigo and CBM's very own Wolvie09, there are in-depth interviews with the director and cast of the much-anticipated THOR film. While the remaining interviews are coming your way soon, below you can check what Chris Hemsworth had to say portraying the mighty Avenger.

"It's incredible," nods Chris Hemsworth, who joined director today. "There are so many talented people involved, and it's very exciting to have so much success with things. It feels like we're on a real roll, and hopefully that'll continue."

"I was playing a god, but what do you draw from to play a god? You try to humanise it, I guess. In my world, who are the gods? We talked about a lot of Shakespeare plays, kings and queens and princes and royalty. That's [director's] business. [Kenneth Branagh] does that world better than anybody. I think it's great mesh to have him come on board with this type of film, because, essentially, the Asgardian family, they are the royalty, the kings and queens of Asgard."

"I had to put on about 20 pounds for the film," says Hemsworth, "and I've lost most of that since I stopped shooting. It was such an effort to keep it on. Then, yeah, we did a lot of stunt training about how [Thor] moved and him as a character, and the more you work out physically how he moves helps with your dialogue scenes and vice versa, so it's an ongoing process."

"Thor's movement is closely linked to Mjolnir, his legendary war hammer. He spins it and throws it and it flies and comes back. Working out how to use that as a weapon practically and its advantages and disadvantages, and then developing the style of how he fights and the body positions that he has in the comic books and trying to use some of them... It was great!"

"I've done five films before shooting Thor. A couple of them had come out. But Red Dawn and then Cabin in The Woods, neither have come out yet. So I was feeling like I'd worked in the business a lot yet hadn't seen anything. Being part of this dream. This huge successful franchise & the incredibly talented people who wrote the story. I couldn't be happier."


Starring alongside Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, and Ray Stevenson, the epic tale of THOR storms into theaters May 6, in about four months in 3D!
