thor natalie portman Chris Hemsworth Talks About Thor   Says Its Fantastic

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.’
