While it’s never really startling news to hear actors sing the praises of movie scripts they’re set to star in, most movies aren’t the huge event that Joss Whedon’s The Avengers almost promises to be. With that in mind, in a recent interview at the Sundance Film Festival Thor star Chris Hemsworth didn’t hesitate to pump up an early draft of The Avengers script saying:
“I saw a very early draft and, yeah, it’s incredible. Look, everything about the story in the comic books is huge. You have these huge, big superheroes and these huge, big egos kind of crammed into one small space.”
To hear more of what Hemsworth had to say about both The Avengers and a potential Jeremy Renner/Hawkeye Thor cameo, hit the jump. Thor hits theaters on May 6th while The Avengers is currently slated for release almost one year later on May 4th, 2012.
Although hearing that a movie with the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe is “huge” isn’t exactly earth-shattering, it’s always nice to get positive updates from one of the most anticipated films of 2012. In addition to The Avengers, Hemsworth was also tight-lipped regarding a Jeremy Renner-Thor cameo claiming he hadn’t seen the actor in his Hawkeye costume and adding:
“Maybe, I don’t know. I can’t deny or confirm anything (laughs)…He wasn’t on set when I was there.”
