Chris Hemsworth wants Star Wars role

Nov 21 2012, 4:02am CST | by

Chris Hemsworth wants to star in the new 'Star Wars' movies because he was such a fan of the film series growing up.

Chris Hemsworth wants to star in the new 'Star Wars' movies.
The 'Avengers' actor was a huge fan of the original films when he was growing up, so would jump at the chance at a part in the recently-announced Episodes VII, VIII, and IX in the sci-fi series.
Asked if he would be interested in the new films, he told MTV News: ''Oh man, I love those films. That's the sort of bread and butter of my film experience as a kid. I would love to work on something like that.''
The 29-year-old star also admitted he is sad to have missed out on a part in the films based on J. R. R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
He added: ''I also loved 'Lord of the Rings'. I would have loved to have done something in that world.''
Meanwhile, Lawrence Kasdan - who was involved in writing the original 'Star Wars' trilogy - and Simon Kinberg have reportedly closed deals to pen the final two movies in the new series.
The pair will join 'Little Miss Sunshine' writer Michael Arndt, who was previously announced to be writing episode VII for Disney Pictures.
However, it is not clear how the division of writing the two films will be made.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron might be the end of Phase Two but, according to one of its new members, it’s just the beginning. While the first footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron was undoubtedly the highlight of Marvel’s 2014 Comic-Con panel, a few of the actors on stage (which included Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Colbie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Paul Bettany, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen and eventuall ...

Dark times ahead for our heroesWhen Marvel comes to Comic-Con these days, it comes big. While the panel was decidedly lower key than some of their previous appearances – even with the groovy, high-energy, flower-throwing entrance by Robert Downey Jr. and the gang – the definite highlight besides the Avengers themselves was the first glimpse of footage from Age Of Ultron.While Joss Whedon himself couldn’t be there in person (he’s recovering from knee surgery), Kevin Feige brought ...

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Comic-Con Panel Recap; New Footage Can’t Save a Disappointing Presentation

Jul 26 2014 9:39pm CDT | Source: Collider

This was the one.  There had been good panels on Saturday, but Marvel is always the one that drives people crazy.  They know how to put on a show.  People were hungry for this panel.  It was supposed to start at 5:30pm and when it started getting later, people were chanting, clapping, and at one point even attempted to do the wave (they failed miserably at that last one) as a way to pass the time and keep up energy until the panel.  There was a ridiculous amount ...

So as promised, here are the final two pieces in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Comic Con promotional posters, featuring the superteam’s two strongest members, the God of Thunder himself Thor (he’s still a dude in the movies, apparently) and the very angry looking Hulk (who may or may never get his own movie, ever again).
