Well, in comparing Cavill and Hemsworth, both careers have flowed differently. Cavill was unable to land Edward Cullen (too old) and James Bond (too young), but found moderate success, yet remained unknown. Hemsworth, on the other hand, received the role of Thor relatively early in his career. So his popularity rose quite quickly. That's the major divergence between both careers at the moment.
