Default Re: "You ready for another Bout?"- The Thor/Chris Hemsworth Thread

But strictly speaking, I much prefer the cinema versions over the comic ones in this case. RDJ's sarcastic and devil may care take on Tony Stark is miles better over the overtly serious and angsty one in the comics for me. Same thing with Hugh as Logan. His humanistic portrayal of Wolvie has me feeling and sympathizing for the character in ways that the comic version never did.

Chris Hemsworth as Thor though, I'd have to give slight edge to Chris in this case. I like the comic version well enough, but the movie Thor is a much more real and fully formed character for me.
Yeah, I am not talking about my favorites here, I am talking more about how much they are like their comic counterparts. I adore Jackman and RDJ in their roles. When it comes to RDJ, I completely agree about preferring him to his comic counterpart. I dislike Tony from the comics.
