Avengers actor Chris Hemsworth says he lost around 15 pounds in the course of shooting director Ron Howard’s historical seafaring epic In the Heart of the Sea (out December 11). That may not seem like a huge amount when compared to say the 60-or-so pounds Christian Bale famously made disappear for 2004’s The Machinist. But Hemsworth had already trimmed down to star in Michael Mann’s thriller Black Hat, which he shot immediately before Howard’s movie.

When I started, I was leaner than my Thor weight, anyway, because I’d been on Michael’s film,” the Australian tells EW. “When you’re already starting off lean, it’s brutal to chew through that kind of weight. Every pound feels like a kilogram.”

In the based-on-real events film, Hemsworth plays a 19th-century seaman called Owen Chase, first mate of whaling ship the Essex, whose captain, George Pollard, Jr., is portrayed by Benjamin Walker. After a whale destroys their ship, Pollard, Chase and the rest of the crew — including characters played by Cillian Murphy and newly minted Spider-Man franchise star Tom Holland — have to survive the elements, and lack of food, in tiny, lifeboat-sized craft.

To convincingly depict starving men, the cast members’ diets were steadily reduced over the course of the production. By the time Howard & co. decamped from London’s Leavesden studios to shoot on the open sea around the Canary Islands the actors were consuming just 500 calories a day.

“We kind of went insane, weighing ourselves every day,” says Hemsworth. “We all felt like a bunch of supermodels, trying to get down in weight for a show, or something. That’s all we spoke about. You’ve got 15 burly blokes on the sea and all we talked about was our diet, and who’d lost more weight, and who’s looking really skinny. It’s ridiculous!”

Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif has played an important supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in 2011’s Thor, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it appears that her character may have an even bigger role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Alexander stated, “Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things. Because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here’s what’s gonna happen.’ But I do know I will be in Thor 3 and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot.”

She went on to say that easters eggs for certain elements of Thor: Ragnarok will be put in Captain America: Civil War.

The film is still looking for a director.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on October 27, 2017 in the UK and November 3, 2017 in the States. Both Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are set to reprise their roles as Thor and Loki in the film. (Source)

Chris Hemsworth is joining the cast of Paul Feig‘s female-led Ghostbusters film, TheWrap has learned.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon star in the film based on the classic ’80s supernatural comedy.

The director first shared the news on his Twitter account, posting a picture of Hemsworth with the caption, “Our receptionist.” Hemsworth will be taking over the role played by Annie Potts in the original 1984 film, which featured Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis as the Ghostbusters.

Kate Dippold and Feig co-wrote the screenplay for the reboot, and filming is expected to begin this year.
The new Ghostbusters will be released on July 22, 2016. (Source)

"Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he's also funny as hell, and he's so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he's so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way."
