Chris Talks to LA Times About “The Avengers”

Geoff Boucher over at The LATimes recently sat down with Thor star Chris Hemsworth and they discussed if we’ll see Captain America and Thor clash in The Avengers, how he feels about working again with director Joss Whedon, and what aspect of The Avengers is he most excited for.

On If We’ll See Thor’s Hammer Hit Captain America’s Shield:
“I’m sure that’s up there on the list of possibilities, that would be something to see at some point,” the star of “Thor” said cryptically when asked if his character might tussle with Captain America in the classic Marvel tradition of superhero sparring. “I’ve thought about that too.”

What He Thinks About Thor And Captain America: TFA Facing Off In The Box Office:
“I have brothers so I know about competing with someone at the same time you’re cheering for them,”

What He’s Most Excited For:
“Jeremy, Chris Evans, Scarlett, Mark Ruffalo, all of them, wow, it’s going to be fun,” said Hemsworth, who before “Thor” was best known to American audiences for a fleeting appearance in the J.J. Abrams “Star Trek” film. “I really feel like a fan in all of this because I’ve seen all these individual characters come to life. Now to throw them together, you feel like a kid in a way, there’s really a giddy feeling. I’m looking forward to being in a room with not just those actors but those characters, these larger-than-life characters, and seeing how that turns out. I want to see how Captain America and Thor and Iron Man react to one another.”

How He Feels About Working With Joss Whedon On The Avengers:
I’ve worked with Joss on ‘Cabin in the Woods’ — he wrote it with Drew Goddard and Drew directed but Joss was on set and very collaborative with ideas, so I got a sense of his personality and who he was. So I feel less cautious now, knowing him and really liking him. I’m really excited to work with Joss and to see where he takes Thor and all of the Marvel characters.”
