Chris and his beautiful wife Elsa Pataky are about to welcome a new addition to their family. The star of Thor and the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman and his wife are expecting their first child, according to Hola! magazine. Pataky tells the publication:
“Chris and I are ecstatic, very happy and excited. Since it’s our first child we don’t care if it’s a boy or girl, our only wish is that it’s healthy.” She says her husband has a big task in front of him and it isn’t about changing diapers. “I’m only going to speak to the baby in Spanish,” she said. “I already told my husband, ‘Get ready fast with Spanish because, if not, you’re not going to be able to understand what we say.”
She’s also chatting about food cravings. “Everything healthy I used to like, I now don’t like. All of a sudden, the only things that sound good to me are all the sweets in the world, hamburgers, and french fries,” she says. “I have never eaten popcorn, and with the pregnancy I eat it all the time.”

Chris Hemsworth – “Thor” (2011)
Marvel’s Thor 2 appears to be back on track, and we’ve now got a brief update on the production. After running through what seemed like a revolving door of potential directors (the latest of which, Patty Jenkins, left the project in early December), television helmer Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) has been set to direct the superhero follow-up. Star Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to Empire and revealed that filming is poised to begin this summer:
“All I know about Thor 2 is that we’re supposed to film it in London in the summer and that it is being directed by Alan Taylor.”
Like I said, it’s a brief update, but it’s good to know that things seem to be moving forward. Both Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are set to return, but plot details are being (predictably) kept under lock and key. We should have a better idea of where the story will go after The Avengers in May. Thor 2 is slated for November 15th, 2013. (Source)
Recently elaborating on his career with the U.K.’s Independent, British actor Tom Hiddleston surely discussed his ‘God Of Mischief’ reprisal as ‘Loki’ in Marvel and Joss Whedon’s superhero phenomenon flick The Avengers. Take a look below at what Tom called a ‘surreal’ experience:
“There was one day when, as Loki, I was sat on some steps, staring at the Avengers in front of me. It would be quite odd just to look at a grouping that involves [such actors as] Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth. But the fact that they were dressed in the most outlandish hero costumes was bizarre! And I thought to myself, ‘This is the dizzy heights.'”
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers hit theatres May 4, 2012. (Source)
I’ve added two additional production still from the upcoming film, The Avengers into the gallery. Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers hits theatres May 4th, 2012! Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
IMDB recently announced the list of Top 100 Stars for 2011. These STARmeter rankings were not based upon critical assessments or box-office performance by the actual page views of the more than 110 million monthly unique users of IMDb.com and IMDb’s leading mobile apps.
So who topped the list? Natalie Portman! The Thor and Black Swan actress was the most viewed actress of 2011. But fear not fan! Chris made the top 10 coming in at a respectful, #5!
1. Natalie Portman
2. Mila Kunis
3. Johnny Depp
4. Emma Stone 5. Chris Hemsworth
6. Olivia Wilde
7. Jennifer Lawrence
8. George Clooney
9. Ryan Gosling
10. Christian Bale
We’ve seen the English and Russian versions, now it is time for the German edition. The German movie trailer for the upcoming film, The Avengers has been released. The Russian and German trailers appear to be virtually identical, both containing new footage. Take a look below:
We all know that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is the main villain of Marvel’s The Avengers. But this Joss Whedon directed ensemble is rumored to have a second villain that has, until now, been kept a tightly guarded secret.
NECA’s HeroClix is set to release their Marvel’s the Avengers line in 2012, and a product description sent to retailers seemingly gives away the identity of the film’s top secret villain. If we are to believe this toy description, Captain America: The First Avenger foe Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) will be the one helping Loki to destroy our team of superheroes this summer.
Here is the product description for the HeroClix line of Marvel’s the Avengers miniature figurines.
“Charging straight out of theaters and onto your tabletop, Marvel’s the Avengers Movie HeroClix set features heroes like Captain America and Thor as they battle the villainy of the Red Skull and Loki! Each Counter-Top display includes standard one-figure boosters as well as new three-figure “Team Packs”! Team Packs are designed with strong thematic undertones – play a Hydra force or defend freedom with a S.H.I.E.L.D. team pack!”
It should be noted that at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, Red Skull is transported into another realm, which could very well be Asgard. Its also possible that Red Skull is include in his Marvel’s the Avengers line simply because it contains 24 single figures, plus 4 team packs of 3 figures each. That’s a lot of characters needed to fill out this particular set of miniatures, and NECA may simply be borrowing characters from other Marvel movies.
Marvel’s the Avengers comes to theaters May 4th, 2012 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson. The film is directed by Joss Whedon. (Source)

"Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he's also funny as hell, and he's so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he's so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way." - Tom Hiddleston ("Thor") about Chris
