“The Avengers” star Chris Hemsworth will be wielding a massive hammer in the highly-anticipated, hero-packed flick but, other than that, the Australian actor is still in the dark about the nuances of his role.

When the “Thor” actor stopped by the Scream Awards red carpet on Saturday, he told MTV News that he hasn’t laid eyes on a script for the 2012 release.

“I’m extremely excited to see it. I talked with [director] Joss [Whedon] right when he first came on board about his ideas and what he planned on doing about it,” Hemsworth said. “But I have yet to see a script.”

He may not know the details of the script, but Hemsworth is familiar with Whedon, who he has worked with in the past. He assured us that the guy behind fantasy hits such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” will carve out some great material for the rising actor.

“[Whedon] produced ‘Cabin in the Woods,’ which Drew Goddard directed, and he was very collaborative in the whole process and was fantastic,” Hemsworth gushed. “I got to know him on a personal level too and have all the confidence in the world in him.”

The actor is pulling major Marvel duty leading the film “Thor” and bringing the superhero’s Norse muscle the all-star “Avengers” adventure alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson. Hemsworth has to pack on the brawn for both movies and said that he’s ramping up his fitness regimen to build superhuman musculature.

“It’s been a bit like that for the last year or so. I’m starting to up the calories and head back in the gym and start slowly putting it back on,” he said, adding that the pumped-up physique “helps you feel a bit like the character.”

Hemsworth recently got the chance to show off his bulk when he appeared as his onscreen alter ego on the cover of the British movie magazine Empire, an experience he relished as a longtime fan of the publication.

“That magazine is something that back in Australia I grew up reading and saving up my pocket money to buy,” he said. “So to be on the front of it is mind-blowing.”

Does Thor fight Loki? “Thor” and future “Avengers” star Chris Hemsworth dropped a lot of headline-worthy news on us when he stopped by MTV’s Comic-Con live stream last weekend. He talked about landing the role of the God of Thunder, how he felt naked without his famous hammer and how Mike Tyson inspired his fighting style for the film.

With regard to that extensive training, one big question on fans’ minds is: Will Thor and his ever-envious adopted brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, come to blows in the film? Hemsworth spoke to that issue, and the short answer is “yes.” But the long answer includes Hemsworth’s playful retelling of shooting one of Thor and Loki’s pivotal action scenes.

“We did [come to blows] actually,” Hemsworth told MTV News. “It’s funny, we had this big rehearsal process of this one particular fight scene we were doing, and the whole time Tom has his staff and he has his Loki helmet on with the horns — he wanted to wear it in rehearsal so he knew how to move.

“Basically he’s sweating and he can’t hear anything, the thing is extraordinarily heavy, he had this kind of crazy look in his eye, and the whole time I’m like, ‘He’s going to kill me, poke my eye out,’ ” Hemsworth continued. “He’s swinging the staff and catching me in the leg and fingers, [I’m thinking,] ‘What’s going on?’ I kept thinking, ‘He’s going to hurt someone.’ ”

Hemsworth then revealed that with all his anxiety about getting injured by Hiddleston, when it came time to shoot the big scene, the roles were reversed.

“The day we shoot the scene, I ended up elbowing him in the nose,” Hemsworth admitted sheepishly. “And [there were] rivers of blood on the set — by accident. Subconsciously, maybe it was on purpose, but consciously I didn’t mean it,” he swore.

Hopefully we’ll hear Hiddleston’s side to that story soon.
