MTV recently talked to the mighty Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth at Cosmopolitan Magazine’s “Fun Fearless Males Of 2011.”The actor revealed he has seen ‘Thor,’ and says “it’s fantastic” – a statement which may be true, but one in which I would definitely take with a giant boulder of salt: “I have [seen ‘Thor’], yeah. It’s fantastic,”…”Being that close to something, it’s often pretty hard to watch yourself, but the film in so many ways is so impressive that I was swept along with it like an audience member, and that’s a pretty good sign.”

Hemsworth also talked about undertaking the role of ‘Thor’ and it’s physical and historical challenges: “Literally, the costume weighed god-knows-how-many pounds. It was heavy,” laughed Hemsworth. “And this is a character who has a ton of history — 40 or 50 years’ worth — and a built-in fanbase. He’s a god and a lot of other things that become overwhelming. At the same time, it’s a dream,” he added. “As a kid, you run around the house pretending to be a superhero, and now to be doing it as a job, I feel very lucky.”

‘Thor’ will be seen swinging his hammer at UK cinemas April 29th, and US cinemas May 6th. The film co-stars Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, and Idris Elba. I really do hope this film is a gem, it sure does look ambitious. If it is in fact ‘fantastic’ it will further add to my excitement for ‘The Avengers.’
