Avengers stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans have expressed interest in making cameo appearances in future Marvel Studios sequels.

The actors told MTV that they would like to reprise their roles in films such as Thor 2 and Captain America 2, but did not offer official confirmation that this will happen.

Hemsworth, who portrays the titular thunder god in Thor, also offered his thoughts on the potential direction of the Alan Taylor-helmed follow-up.

“Certainly the first one left with Thor needing to get back to earth and see Jane but there will be bigger problems as usual,” he said. “But my big concern is how is Thor going to come to earth and not call upon the rest of his buddies now?

“That will be the trick to conveniently kind of skewer them off to different sides of the globe.”

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously confirmed that Thor 2 will feature a “big villain” from the Marvel Comics universe alongside Tom Hiddleston’s returning Loki.

Thor 2 is slated for release on November 15, 2013, while Captain America 2 is slated for April 4, 2014.

That noise you’re hearing is millions of Joss Whedon fans from across the universe yelling “FINALLY!” all at once.

It has taken years for the Whedon co-written movie, “Cabin in the Woods,” to finally hit screens, and after last week’s teaser poster, here we have the first trailer and the most conclusive evidence yet that this movie may actually open.

Future Whedon collaborator Chris Hemsworth leads a cast of attractive 20-somethings into the familiar set-up. They’re looking to go off the grid and spend some time—where else—in a cabin in the woods. With the straight-forward horror set-up, you’d be right to expect Whedon and his co-writer/director Drew Goddard to take things down unexpected paths.

Things do get weird once the group reaches the cabin, but that’s just the start of it. There’s a force field, a mysterious control room, a suspicious gas station attendant and some good old-fashioned scares.

“Cabin in the Woods” was originally set for release all the way back in the fall of 2009, but financial woes at MGM put the film’s future in question. Once Chris Hemworth hit it big with the lead role in “Thor” in addition to Whedon’s rabid fanbase, a release seemed inevitable but out of sight, that is until Lionsgate stepped in and saved the film from collecting dust.

The movie also stars Richard Jenkins, Kristen Connolly and Anna Hutchinson.

“Cabin in the Woods” finally hits theaters on April 13, 2012. Be sure to check out the full trailer above! [xx]

Chris Hemsworth suits up in Dolce&Gabbana for an interview with late-night talk show hot Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday (May 5) in Hollywood.

The 27-year-old Aussie actor chatted about his new action movie, Thor, and how his younger brother, Liam, was one of the finalists to play the title character!

“[I] trumped him, yeah. We haven’t spoken since. I just sent a photo in costume and said, ‘Sorry!’” he joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“We have a good healthy competition relationship as brothers do,” Chris added.

“Thor” hasn’t hit theaters yet, but star Chris Hemsworth and director Kenneth Branagh hit the El Capitan Theatre with gusto Monday night for the Hollywood premiere of the big-budget studio tentpole film that many are predicting will spawn a new franchise.

Paramount, the studio releasing the movie based on a Marvel comic book, pulled out all the stops, shutting down a portion of Hollywood Boulevard to accomodate the glut of stars — among them Kat Dennings, who plays the goofy sidekick to Natalie Portman’s character in the film — who walked the “Thor” red carpet. A faux-gold throne was erected in front of the theater.

Most of the “Thor” cast members said they were so swept up in the evening’s festivities that they hadn’t even paid mind to the possibility of a sequel.

“The moment you start thinking, ‘What should I do with “Thor 2” or “[Thor] 3″?’ I think it’s over,” Branagh said.

“Sometimes people talk about saving stuff for movies. I wouldn’t do that. Put it all in the first one,” he joked.

It also will take the film’s producers a few months to absorb how “Thor” is received, Branagh said.

“And then I think it’s during that time that I guess one would figure out whether Marvel is prepared to write the check and whether we’re ready to write the stories.”

Hemsworth, who stars as the Norse god in the movie, said that when he signed on to “Thor” he wasn’t bothered by the possibility of being locked into a popular franchise for a number of years.

“For me, I was happy to get a job. I fell in amongst Anthony Hopkins and Kenneth Branagh and Natalie Portman and a film like this, it was a dream,” he said. “It wasn’t much hesitation. It was, ‘Sign me up.’ ”

Dennings echoed that sentiment. “The thing is, it’s kind of the dream project, so if I’m needed in any sequels, I’d be more than happy to sign my life away.”


And a hearty welcome to Hollywood Crush’s first-ever Dystopian Week! For the next five days we’ll be taking a look at all things futuristic and bleak in YA literature. (It’ll be much more fun than it sounds…promise!) We wanted to kick the week off on a high (and very hot) note, so without further ado, we bring you this adorable clip from “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth.

Chris Hemsworth!?! you may be asking. What does he have to do with sticking it to the man? WELL, you may recall that last month the Aussie actor divulged that he was younger brother Liam’s line-reading partner while he practiced for his “Hunger Games” audition (meaning Chris played Katniss to Liam’s Gale).

When we caught up with Chris recently to chat about his upcoming flick, we just had to see his Katniss up close and personal. We crafted a short script from the opening moments of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian trilogy (the scene in which Katniss and childhood friend Gale go hunting) and asked Chris to give it a read—in character, of course.

Press play on the clip below to watch Chris and our own Josh Horowitz reenact the “Hunger Games” scene. You won’t be disappointed.


Regular readers know that a few weeks ago, Thor’s hammer (and helmet and toys) turned up at MTV Splash Page HQ, courtesy of the good folks at Hasbro. Your friendly neighborhood editor gladly set aside his pride to call down the imaginary thunder for your amusement, and when “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth dropped by the newsroom recently to talk about his upcoming film, we couldn’t help asking him to do the same.

In the following video, you can see for yourself what happened when I asked MTV Movies editor Josh Horowitz to bring along Mjolnir for his interview with Hemsworth.

That’s right — we got a first-hand lesson on how to wield Mjolnir, complete with a few hammer tosses. You’re welcome.

“There are very flamboyant spins you can do, and little flips even,” Hemsworth told MTV News of the proper way to wield the famous hammer. “Other than that, it’s about brutally swinging this in the direction of your enemy and ending things.”

However, when asked to demonstrate some god-like moves and dialogue, Hemsworth decided to let his on-screen performance do the talking… and the hammer-swinging.

“What would [Thor] say? You’ll have to see the movie,” he laughed.


All of MTV News’ recent interactions with Chris Hemsworth, a.k.a. the man about to grace movie screens as the God Of Thunder in “Thor,” have naturally been very focused on the highly anticipated film and all the nerdy details that come with portraying a comic book superhero.

We love everything “Thor,” of course, but since the Norseman will also be appearing in the possibly even more anticipated and mysterious “Avengers” movie, we can’t help but pester everyone in the high-profile cast about the film, which just started production.

So when we caught up with Hemsworth recently to expand on our ever-growing database of “Thor” information, we prodded the Aussie for some “Avengers” details. Although he couldn’t give us much, he seemed excited that his onscreen brother Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) will be joining him on set, as well as the potential for a superhero smackdown.

“[It’s great] to have my brother there. Even if we don’t get along,” Hemsworth joked. “[Hiddleston] is fantastic. [He gave] an incredible, incredible performance in the film, and he’s going to do the same in this one.”

With regard to how all those superheroes will be interacting, particularly Tony Stark, Hemsworth said the environment will be tense.

“There’s certainly some tension. You’ve got big egos on these superheroes,” he said. “None of them want to be told what to do or form an alliance with these people who they don’t understand anything about,” he said. “In the comic books, you see that it’s not an easy mix; that’s definitely in [the movie].”

When asked if we’ll see the ensemble cast (Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Hemsworth and Hiddleston) come to blows, Hemsworth surprised us with an answer in the affirmative.

“Well, you’d want it, wouldn’t you? Otherwise, why are we all there? I think it would be safe to say you can expect something like that,” he said.


Who does “The Last Song” star Liam Hemsworth have to thank for landing the coveted role of Gale Hawthorne in the big-screen adaptation of “The Hunger Games”? (Er, besides his agent, his manager and the studio?) Try “Thor” big brother Chris Hemsworth. No, he didn’t pull any strings or call in any favors. Chris’ contribution was much more subtle—and girly.

When our own Josh Horowitz caught up with the star at WonderCon—just days before little bro Liam landed the plum role—Josh asked Chris what he thought of Liam potentially starring in the biggest YA franchise since “Twilight.” “I’d love him to get it. I think he’s incredibly talented,” Chris said (aw, brotherly love!). “We run all our stuff together and workshop things and talk about it,” he continued. “Any minute now, I think he’s going to launch into something.”

When Josh pressed for more specifics, Chris let something slip we hadn’t expected. “I helped him audition. We ran our lines together,” he said. HOLD THE PHONE. Does that mean, you, Mr. Hammer-Wielding God Incarnate, read the lines of 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen?

“I did. Swear to God,” he replied with a big grin and a chuckle. “I read that. Put my girly American accent on.” And then the kicker: Affecting a high-pitched timbre, Chris gave us his best Katniss impression saying, “Hey, how are you?”

Oh, to be a fly on the wall of the Hemsworth household.
