In a recent chinwag with MTV The Mighty Avenger Thor – Chris Hemsworth offered his thoughts on The Avengers script:

“I saw a very early draft and, yeah, it’s incredible,” Hemsworth said of the screenplay, “…Look, everything about the story in the comic books is huge. You have these huge, big superheroes and these huge, big egos kind of crammed into one small space. Reading the script, it was massive. I said to Joss [Whedon], ‘I don’t know how you’re going to shoot this thing, but I’m excited to be onboard and let’s give it a go.”

Sounds promising. I would take what he says with a grain giant boulder of salt though (you wouldn’t exactly catch him putting down the script). I’m hugely excited with what Marvel have in the pipeline over the next few years, the scale of what they’re working with seems HUGE by tying all these iconic characters together. ‘Thor’ is set for release April 29th 2011 in the UK, and May 6th 2011 in the US. The Avengers hits cinemas May 4th, 2012.
