This year’s buzz word when any actor is involved with a project and someone asks them about it is: Fantastic! This summer, there are two dozen highly anticipated superhero related projects either hitting the big screen or going into production. And all we know about them is that they are “fantastic”. Chris Hemsworth is the latest to use this all-encompassing praise. He has just seen Thor in its entirety. And you guessed it. He thinks the movie is “fantastic!”
Here is what he had to say about sitting down to watch one of this summer’s biggest potential blockbusters.
“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.”
The actor also spoke more about having to carry the weight of this iconic Marvel franchise squarely on his own shoulders.
“Literally, the costume weighed god-knows-how-many pounds. It was heavy. 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. 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.”
