    I'm quite sure it was taken while filming "Rush".

    Look I'm a straight male, but Chris Hemsworth is a beautiful beautiful man.
    That is all.

    So true. As a straight man, I can't deny that too. The fact he's a handsome guy is not exactly debatable.:yay:

    Well hey, I lean more towards Tom Hiddleston and his every man good looks but yes, Chris Hemsworth is very easy on the eyes as well.

    And we'll just have to look forward to a pic of him as Thor in the sleeveless costume. That will certainly be easy on the eyes!

    That's an amazing idea! Now that you've mentioned it, I can totally see Hemsworth playing Het. :wow:

    My only question is, who would you cast as the other band members? And I want to hear who you'd have playing Mustaine in particular.

    Heh. I adore Some Kind Of Monster. They couldn't possibly make a movie to top the drama, humour and sheer stupidity of the scenes involving that idiotic psychologist. Although if Tom Cruise played him, wearing a nice patterned, knitted jumper ......

    Back on topic .... Ummmm .... OMG Chris is hot!

    Hmmm...after much deliberation I think I'd go with Tom Hardy as Dave Mustaine. Obviously he'd need a wig but I think facially the actor could be a good movie likeness for the fiery former lead guitarist of Metallica.

    I have a question for everyone regarding the Thor/Algrim fight. (When Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's casting was first announced, it was mentioned he would play both Algrim and Kurse. So I assume he will fight Thor in both forms.)

    Do you think it will be as short as it was in the books? Or will it be longer? Frankly, I was really surprised at how short the Thor/Algrim fight was in the books.

    If you expect it to be longer, what sorts of attacks/craters/knockbacks/avalanches, etc. do you expect them to add?

    I'll type it up here in its entirety so you have it as reference. I wasn't able to find any panels to post. But if someone has access to some, I am referencing (Vol. 1), Issue #347 around pages 16 and 18.

    Thor is running down the corridor and runs past Algrim standing in shadow. Algrim comes out and hits him two fists to the back, sending Thor sprawling and dropping Mjolnir.
    [THAAKTT!]
    Thor:UHHH!
    (And Algrim is *huge*!)
    Algrim: A single blow has rendered him helpless. Now I shall administer the coup de grace. . . . And forever will the legends sing of the glory of Algrim the Strong, who slew the Mighty Thor!
    Algrim grabs Thor by the right forearm and the right knee (I think) and flings him over his head.
    Algrim: How the Dark Elves shall sing of this moment in ages hence! My name shall strike fear into the hearts of Asgardians everywhere!
    Thor: Braggart! Only thy treacherous blow from behind enabled thee to fell the son of Odin! Thy strength is *nothing* compared to that of Ulik the Troll! And it is *less* than nothing to *me*!
    Thor manages to free his right arm somehow and clocks Algrim from above.
    [KRAK!]
    Algrim: ARRGH!
    Malekith: Excellent! Our illusion has served its purpose! Guardsman, open the pitfall!
    Guardsman: But--what of Algrim!
    Malekith: Let him lie in glory forever with the Mighty Thor! Spring the trap!
    The guardsman pushes the giant lever.
    Thor: What now? The floor gives way beneath my feet to reveal a yawning chasm that seemingly has no end!
    Thor struggles with his footing.
    Narrator: And with a thundrous [sic] roar, the entire tunnel collapses, carrying Thor and his erstwhile foe out of the sight of men. . . perhaps forever!
    We see only Algrim's hand and a bit of Thor's red cape.
    In the next issue, Thor realizes he is falling toward a pool of magma. He calls Mjolnir to him and escapes by flying back up to the corridor.

    The story moves on to Surtur's invasion--we don't see anything of Kurse at this time. So that's all there is.

    (As a footnote, I'll add that later in #348 Thor fights Malekith with a ferocity that seems similar to what we saw in the University of Greenwich footage.)

    Personally I think it will be similar. Except Kurses ressuraction will simply somehow work iits way into the leadup to surtur. That's what I'm willing to bet.

    Clearly this is an award that I think is much more important than Oscars and such because it is decided by real people and they have stated they really like Chris Hemsworth.

    Now I knew that Tom auditioned and wanted to be Thor but had no idea that Chris wants to be Loki apparently. LOL

    Agreed :up:

    I hope this is a good indicator that Thor 2 will be much more successful than the first based on Chris' rise in popularity.
